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!
What an awesome ride! :) Melody Carlson never ceases to deliver a unique and fantastic Christmas novella each year! And The Christmas Joy Ride is no exception! This is a must read this season! You feel like you're right there in the RV with Christmas Joy and her elf! ;) Filled with holiday spirit and a few surprises with a dash of romance! This is the perfect read for a cold snowy day curled up in front of the fire with a cup of tea or cocoa! I highly recommend it! Fun, laughter, surprise, shock, Faith, love, healing, fresh starts, and much more await you!
