How to Be a Millionaire is an okay weekend read. The waiter-millionaire scenario is a bit of a stretch (just go with it). It is also a little too predictable for my tastes, most likely due to its length. [I must admit that I am not a big fan of short-stories and novellas. So of course, I wished that it was longer.] For such a short story, the publisher seemed to make some distracting errors in its print edition. The story was pleasant enough though: easy to read, wholesome, and sweet.
It is a Christian-based read (i.e. clean - no foul language or sex, references to faith). I think that it is accessible to a wide range of readers - from younger teens to adults. Through the romance, the story also delivers a gentle message about the fine line between lies and purposeful misdirection.

I would recommend getting the collection book, Colorado Christmas. It includes all of the stories in the series: How to Be a Millionaire, A Wife in Name Only, and Love by Accident.
