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.
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 by Blanche Mancuso
Ms. Carlson's book takes her readers on a joy ride in a motor home decked out in Christmas decorations and holiday cheer.
Miranda, an 85 year young woman takes her younger friend, Joy, on a road trip of a lifetime. These ladies experience joy, excitement, romance, and a near tragedy on the road from Chicago to Phoenix while spreading Christmas love at every stop along the way they make. Pick up a copy of this book and experience the people, places, and friends Miranda and Joy meet on this glorious road trip.
I would happily suggest that everyone that loves a true adventure whether you are young or young at heart, grab hold and take a journey with these two loveable ladies. The Christmas Joy Ride is a fun read that you will find hard to put down.
