Book Review-The Christmas Coat-Kathleen Shoop

Monday, December 7, 2020

This reminds me of The Christmas Carol--remember Scrooge? Well this is kind of a modern day version.

Elliot Ebberts is a definite modern day Scrooge! But he thinks he will make his wife happy by buying her a very special gift. On his way to finish up the signing for her gift he see a coat in a window of a NYC store. It looks like a woman's coat but is for a man. He buys it for a very high price and immediately feels like a million bucks. He has his wife wrap the coat as a present for him. As he is leaving for the signing he decides to wear the coat. He drops all the kids and their friends off to school and goes on his way.

When he gets to where he is going he realizes that the coat is no longer in his car. He becomes frantic. He heads back to the school where he is told they just sent that coat to the local Goodwill store with all the other clothing collected-----Goodwill has sold it already---that person has given it away after it brought her good luck--and on he traveled to find his very expensive coat.

Have no fear there is a very happy ending!! As a matter of fact I found tears in my eyes--I love happy endings!!

The author graciously gave me a copy of this ebook for my enjoyment and possible review.
