The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

From the Publisher:

Miranda did not put adventure on her Christmas list, but thanks to her eighty-five-year-old neighbor Joy, that's exactly what she's getting this year. When Joy tells Miranda that she plans to drive an old RV decked out in Christmas decorations from their Chicago neighborhood to her new retirement digs in Phoenix--in the dead of winter, no less--the much younger Miranda insists that Joy cannot make such a trip by herself. Besides, a crazy trip with Joy would be more interesting than another Christmas home alone. Unemployed and facing foreclosure, Miranda feels she has nothing to lose by packing a bag and heading off to Route 66. But Joy has a hidden agenda for their Christmas joyride--and a hidden problem that could derail the whole venture.

No one captures the heartwarming fun of the Christmas season quite like Melody Carlson. Fasten your seat belt, because it's going to be an exciting ride!





Melody Carlson is one of my favorite authors and I make it a point to read her Christmas novels each year. It's a tradition of mine and between Ms. Carlson and Debbie Macomber, there is no better way  start off my holiday season!

I truly enjoyed reading The Christmas Joy Ride! I fell in love with Christmas Joy and Miranda as they rode across Route 66 granting holiday wishes.  

This story is funny, heart warming and so worth reading. It will definitely get you in the holiday spirit!

Thanks to  Revell and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Reading a good book like this is a great way of getting one's self ready for the holidays. This sounds like a good one.
