A heartwarming holiday story about second chances

Single mother Samantha Dean doesn’t have time for Christmas. Or romance, for that matter. She is weeks away from opening her own catering business, the most important part of her plan to provide her certified genius daughter Patty with all the wonderful things she deserves.

Except Patty doesn’t want to go to a fancy boarding school. She wants a father and when she meets bartender Murphy O’Rourke at her fourth grade Career Day presentation, she knows she’s met the man of her mother’s dreams!

But can she convince her Mrs. Scrooge of a mom that it was time to give Christmas — and love — a second chance?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Another wonderful story by this author. An awesome read for the Christmas season and any time of the year you want a lift from life’s challenges.


Barbara Bretton spins a twist on the classic tale that will delight you at every turn of the page. Sure it’s trite and sappy but it’s just what you want to be reading at Christmastime. If you’re having trouble getting into the spirit, read Mrs. Scrooge and enjoy falling into Christmas!


This book made me so happy. With Christmas right around the corner I picked up this book and it gave me just the thing I was looking for. Romance, Christmas, happiness. This is a great story and such a wonderful book to read at this time.


Great story, happily ever after. But that’s a perfect and preferred Christmas story. No doom and gloom, just everyone happy.


Do yourself a favor and settle under a cozy Afghan by the tree and get lost in the wonder of the season with these unforgettable characters. It’s a can’t put it down kind of book. It’s the middle of the night now and I just finished reading it in one sitting. I’m left with a warm glow that’ll get me through the rest of the night.

About The Author

In the month of February 1982 I wrote and sold my first novel. And no, I wouldn’t believe it either if it hadn’t happened to me. I sent in my manuscript on Thursday February 21, 1982 and four days later the telephone rang and I heard the amazing words, “We want to buy your book.” How I wish you could have seen me. I was standing by the kitchen door of our North Babylon house, the picture of cool sophistication, as I listened to Vivian Stephens explain the terms of the deal to me. You would have thought I’d sold a first book every single day of my life. Yes, I said. Sounds wonderful. Thank you so much for calling. I look forward to our association. That cool sophistication hung on until I hung up the phone, took a deep breath, then promptly threw up on my shoes.

I was thirty-one years old, unagented, unschooled, unfamiliar with anything to do with the business of publishing. To put it mildly, I was in shock. My husband was working in Manhattan at the time (and finishing up his degree at night) so it would be hours until I could break the news to him. This was too exciting to waste on a phone call. I wanted to see his face when I told him that my dream had finally come true — and came with a $6000 advance!

He pulled into the driveway at midnight. I was waiting in the doorway, holding a bottle of champagne and two glasses. I didn’t have to say a word. He knew right away and the look of joy and pride in his eyes warms me now, years later, long after the advance faded into memory.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Barbara Bretton and ENT appreciate it.
