Book Review - Remembering Christmas by Dan Walsh

Publisher's blurb:
Can one Christmas change a life forever?
Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls begging him to come home after his stepfather has an aneurysm, Rick is more than a little reluctant. What was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and dealing with the homeless guy who keeps hanging around the store. The one bright spot is the lovely and intriguing young woman who works at his side each day.
As Christmas nears, Rick's old life beckons, the hurts from his past loom large, and the decisions he makes will determine more than just where he spends Christmas Eve.
With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story that will have you remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.

My review:  I can add this to the list of books I have been disappointed in. It starts off well enough but quickly leads into details about a guy with a huge chip on his shoulder for no apparent reason. The characters were 2 dimensional and boring. I guessed the mystery of the story almost at the beginning. I would not recommend this book to others.
