The Christmas Joy Ride By: Melody Carlson

Back of the Book

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. Unemployed and facing foreclosure, Miranda feels she has nothing to lose by packing a bag and heading off with Joy toward Route 66. But Joy has a hidden agenda for their Christmas joyride--one 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

If you are looking for a cute and entertaining book to get you into the holiday spirit, look no further than The Christmas Joy Ride.  Full of entertaining characters and heart warming scenes, this book was a delight to read.  While this book is entertaining, it also has a great underlining theme.  It highlights worries and strains that anyone can relate to at the holidays, as well as simple acts to help others find joy.   You might want to purchase two copies, because once you loan this out you might never get it back.

I was given this book free from Revell Publishing for my honest review.
