Format: Hardcover
From the cover: "Christy Award - winning author Rosey Dow creates a rich Christmas romance in this story from nineteenth-century Colorado. Penny Joshua decides to train a bellboy to act like a millionaire to refer her brother for loan approval. Will a case of mistaken identity lead to a hot spring of shame, or heat up to romance over the Christmas season?"

If I could, I would rate How to Be a Millionaire as okay (maybe 2.5 stars). It's 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 editing errors in this print. 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). Therefore, I think that it is accessible to a wide age 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.

Recommended for:

- Romance readers
- Historical romance readers
- Christian fiction readers
- Holiday (Christmas) story readers

NOTE: The story seems more like a novella than a novel (making the individual story asking price seem a bit steep). I would recommend getting the collection book, Colorado Christmas: How to be a Millionaire/Love by Accident/Wife in Name Only (Heartsong Novella Collection).
