Christmas Joy Ride
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!
My thoughts: This is a fun, lighthearted read for the holidays! I enjoyed the characters, as they spread some Christmas cheer along Route 66. It's a sweet story of two ladies who who are at different points in their lives that is requiring a lot of change, one is an elderly lady who is moving closer to her children and the other is a younger woman who is looking at being totally uprooted. As they make stops along the way, they both realize that they are exactly where they need to be.
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
