The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

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. 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!

Melody Carlson’s latest Christmas novel, The Christmas Joy Ride, offers readers a fun, light-hearted story to enjoy during the holiday season. The story follows Miranda, leaving her problems momentarily behind, and her elderly neighbor, Joy, on an RV, route-66 trip across the country to spread holiday cheer to a handful of people in desperate need of it. Though the plot is fairly predictable and the minor romance develops a bit too quickly, The Christmas Joy Ride is a heartwarming holiday book that I enjoyed and will please any reader looking for a quick and enjoyable Christmas read.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of The Christmas Joy Ride and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
