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!

Nothing heralds the approaching holidays like the arrival of a Melody Carlson Christmas novella. The Christmas Joy Ride is aptly named as it is a delightful journey for the heart. Of course, I fell in love with Joy and her generous spirit from the opening pages, and I treasured her wisdom and insights as she and Miranda delivered Christmas cheer on scheduled stops across Route 66. Carlson once again delivers a heartwarming tale that will become a holiday tradition to read year after year. Don't miss The Christmas Joy Ride.
