Lost December by Richard Paul Evans

As are most of the books I read, this one came from the public library.  
Richard Paul Evans' books tend to be pretty predictable but that is fine with me. Sometimes I need to read a book that is an easy and uplifting read. Lost December didn't disappoint me. Just by reading the blurb on the book flap you willl know most of the plot but the process is enjoyable and Evans includes some nice sentiments along the way.
Luke Crisp is the only child of a very wealthy man and is due to take over the family business when he decides to "live his life". He takes his trust fund money and does just that, blowing through his money quite quickly and discovering that his friends weren't really friends. Broke, homeless, and alone, he is too ashamed to face his father. He finds a lowly job after hitting rock bottom and discovers what is really important in life.

What I liked about it:  I like books that make me feel better about life when I am done reading them.  This book did just that, and I needed it today!

What I didn't like:  It was too short!  I would have liked the story to be fleshed out a little more, not a behemoth necessarily, just more than it is now.

Was it clean?:  Yes, as are all of his books.
