Christmas Joy Ride
Book Summary: 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!
Review: This was a fantastic Christmas story. I really liked the Route 66 ride. That is a classic old fashioned route paired with Christmas. When I think of Christmas I want an old fashioned one, what a great way to start a new tradition riding Route 66. Joy was fantastic!! She was a spunky character and along with Miranda this was a fantastic book about helping others and driving in a RV! Oh what a fun ride. I would like to join them. The sweetness of people getting their wishes for a great Christmas was enjoyable. I really liked each of the places they stopped and doing great things to help those in need of holiday cheer. As the end nears, I was so happy with the outcome and move this book to a holiday classic.
