Blog Tour: Remembering Christmas

About the Book:
Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls on Thanksgiving weekend begging him to come home after his stepfather has a stroke, Rick is more than a little reluctant. He's never liked Art and resents the man's presence in his life, despite the fact that his own father abandoned the family when Rick was just twelve. When what was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and running off the homeless man who keep hanging about, Rick's attitude sours even more.

Still, slowly but surely, the little bookstore and its quirky patrons--as well as the lovely young woman who works at his side each day--work their magic on him, revealing to Rick the truth about his family, his own life, and the true meaning of Christmas. With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story will have readers remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.

My Comments:
Its a Christmas read.  It is sweet, inspiring, set during the Christmas season and everyone lives happily ever after.  What else did you expect?  There is one unexpected twist, but it doesn't change the expected ending, it only enhances it.  It is Christian fiction and part of the happily ever after is Rick finding Jesus.  

I'd like to thank Donna Hausler with Baker Publishing Group for providing a complimentary review copy.  The book was available in September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.  Grade:  B-
