I look forward, with great anticipation every year to Melody Carlson's Christmas book. It is nearly a tradition now. The arrival of the Christmas book begins my Christmas reviewing season. This book was as wonderful as her previous books. I loved Joy and her Christmas motor home. Her mission was a wonderful heartfelt gesture for her blog readers. It was also a life-changing experience for Miranda. Melody's books always thrill and satisfy my holiday reading spirit. Another wonderful story in her Christmas series. Can not wait to see what next year brings. 5 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided by the publisher for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
About 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. 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 seatbelt, because it's going to be an exciting ride!
