You fool! You can shuffle your money and build better retirement homes, but one day your life will be required of you. Then who will benefit from what you prepared for yourself?

The Christmas season’s come, and O. L. (Ollie) Feuille has dispatched all his obligatory gifts to clients and employees, but his thoughts are far from festive.

His chief competitor in the world of retirement homes, Hank Cochran of Swanky Seniors, is eyeing Ollie’s flagship home, the Queen Anne in Manassas.

Ollie would sooner die than let Cochran get his slimy hands on the pink Victorian lady. Although a tad run down, she still outclasses Swanky Seniors homes with their trendy colors and skylights. Ollie vows to save her at all costs.

Enter Art Dink, a down-and-outer turned fisher of men. Dink battles for Ollie’s heart, dancing in and out of his life—and dreams—right up to Christmas Eve.

Will Ollie take Dink’s bait or play the fool?

  3. Pam, your book sounds amazing. My favorite holiday character is Scrooge because in the beginning he’s a villain, but at the end of the day, he’s a good guy with a kind heart.

    1. Hi, Jeanne! Merry Christmas–belatedly. I just discovered I had unapproved comments to the Christmas in July blog. I love Scrooge, too. If you like Scrooge, I know you’d enjoy The Old Fool! Thanks for your comment.

  6. Your book sounds like it would be a great story!! I love restoration stories. And fun fact…I had a ferret named Dink, so that name makes me smile.

    I would have to say that one of my favorite Christmas heroes is Arthur from “Arthur Christmas”. He was willing to risk everything, just so one child isn’t forgotten and left without a present on Christmas morning. He reminded everyone what Christmas was really about and helped his family rediscover the joy in making children happy.

    Thank you for the chance!!

    1. Hi, Kristen! I just discovered that I had unapproved posts for the Christmas in July blog. I’m sorry it took so long to discover your comment!

      I had a babysitter named Mrs. Dink–there aren’t too many Dinks around!

      I’m not familiar with Arthur Christmas! He sounds very special.

      Merry Christmas!
      Pam

  7. This sounds very intriguing and I look forward to reading it to find out how it all works out. Scrooge is my favorite because he learns the true meaning of things before it is too late for him to change.

      Merry Christmas!

  8. favorite Christmas hero is Joseph in the Bible who chose to have Mary as his wife although in his culture she should be stoned for being pregnant with “another man”s child”.

    1. Hi, Esther! I’m sorry it took so long for me to discover my unapproved posts from Christmas in July!

      Yes, Joseph is a true hero. It took a lot of courage for him to do what he did.

      Merry Christmas!
      Pam

  9. I guess my favorite hero/vilain would be the Grinch. He is the perfect example of what people should not be at the holidays or any time of the year. The revelation of what Christmas is really all about and the change it brings to him is perfect for the season.

    1. Hi, Patricia! I just discovered I had unapproved posts from Christmas in July! Thanks for responding! Yes, the Grinch is a great character! Merry Christmas!
      Pam
