The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

Monday, December 7, 2015

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.

 Melody Carlson is the award-winning author of over two hundred books, several of them Christmas novellas from Revell, including her much-loved and bestselling book, The Christmas Bus.

She also writes many teen books, including the Diary of a Teenage Girl series, the TrueColors series, and the Carter House Girls series.

Melody was nominated for a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award in the inspirational market for her books, including the Notes from a Spinning Planet series and Finding Alice, which is in production as a Lifetime Television movie. She and her husband serve on the Young Life adult committee in central Oregon.

My Thoughts~
The cover of this book just says FUN! Melody Carlson's Christmas books have become something I look forward to all year. They are always fun and carry the true meaning of Christmas. This book is no different. I read this book in one day, it was full of fun and adventure. Mostly it was full of what the Christmas Season is all about, giving. Joy is a hoot, and Miranda can't believe she agreed to go on this road trip with Joy. Joy is determined to spread Christmas Joy from one end of Route 66 to the other. 
 I highly recommend it!
