"Rene Gutteridge has a knack for posing an interiguing 'What if?' scenario and then spinning it out into a tale full of twists, turns and surprises. She has kept me reading waaaaay past my bedtime on more than one occasion." -- Dave Meurer, Christian humorist and author of Stark Raving Dad
Talk about working out your faith with fear and trembling.
The biggest thing to happen to Skary, Indiana, is renowned horror novelist Wolfe Boone--or "Boo," as the locals fondly call him. For the past sixteen years, the reclusive writer has been the town's greatest attraction, having unintentionally turned the once-struggling Skary into a thriving tourist-trap for the dark side: from the Haunted Mansion restaurant, famous for its "bloody fingers" (fries splattered with ketchup), to Spooky's Bookstore (where employees dress like the walking dead).
But when a newly reformed Wolfe suddenly quits the genre and subsequently starts to pursue Skary's favorite girl-next-door, Ainsley Parker, the little town made famous by his writings becomes truly horrified. Soon a scheme is plotted to put the fright back into Skary--and get their most famous resident out of love and back into the thrill business.
Filled with humor, small town charm, and a gentle massage of enduring faith, Boo shows how even the most colorful group of busybodies and hypocrites can become a community changed forever by God.
