This could have been a good story. It starts as a seeming attempt to bring the over-consumptive habits of Americans at Christmas to light. Just when you think the hero will prevail, the plot turns on itself. For those of us who would like to see family appreciation replace eight foot glowing santas as a holiday them, this book is a loser. However, I will say that it has funny moments ala Year in Provence and that there are some light and charming family moments, so it is not a total wash. However, I'd easily recommend Paint House over this.
