Lost December Book Review

There are so many books lining my shelves that I want to read, but this month I’ve been in the mood for Christmas books. I left the books on my shelves a little longer and borrowed a few from the library. My first book review is Lost Lost December Book ReviewDecember by Richard Paul Evans.

When Luke Crisp graduates from business school, his father, CEO and co-founder of Fortune 500 Crisp’s Copy Centers, is ready to share some good news: he wants to turn the family business over to his son. But Luke has other plans. Taking control of his trust fund, Luke leaves home to pursue a life of reckless indulgence.

But when his funds run out, so do his friends. Humbled, alone, and too ashamed to ask his father for help, Luke secretly takes a lowly job at one of his father’s copy centers. There he falls in love with a struggling single mother and begins to understand the greatest source of personal joy.

Lost December is Richard Paul Evans’s modernday holiday version of the biblical story of the prodigal son, a powerful tale of redemption, hope, and the true meaning of love. {Amazon}

This Christmas romance is sweet and I loved the twist on the prodigal son. (It only took me three days to read – which is fast for me!) Even though Luke made mistake after mistake, he was consistently likeable. During this season of miracles, this is a perfect second chance story!

Have you read any good Christmas stories this month?
