The Christmas Joy Ride
by Melody Carlson
-From the back cover-
“I'm going on a mission, Miranda.
I'm going to spread some Christmas joy along Route 66
And no one is going to stop me.”
“But you can't go driving across the entire country
in the middle of winter– “
“I can and I will,” Joy declared stubbornly...
“I think it's a totally outrageous plan. I can't
bear the thought of you being out there by
yourself – and at your age too. I'll be scared
sick about you being on the road . . .”
Joy had an idea, and she knew this was her chance.
She had to give it one good try.
“And that is exactly why
I want you to come along with me, Miranda.”
Head down Route 66...
This Book received a 4 Bark rating.
The Christmas Joy Ride is everything cozy and Christmasy and a truly delightful read. At only 168 pages it is the perfect length for a comfy-cozy afternoon. That's what I did, curled up in a chair with my fuzzy blanket and finished it in one afternoon.
One thing just have to say is that this is one gorgeous book! From the nice-sized print and the wreath decorating each chapter number to the dark blue cover and lovely dust jacket, this is one nice book.
Fans of Christmas stories and Melody Carlson are sure to love The Christmas Joy Ride!
