The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

Melody Carlson, I do love you! It's hard to have book after book that is a great read, but you have done it again! This is a wonderful read! Elderly Widowed Joy Jorgenson has sold her home. Goodbye Chicago, and hello Phoenix. It's near her sons, and while it is a retirement home, that is ok. She was going to fly there but she changed her mind. She has something to do first. 

The RV is dusted and packed, and Joy is going by herself! She is going on a trip spreading Christmas joy! Alone, did I mention alone and in her 80's? Her friend Miranda decides that is a bad thing, and so now Miranda is along for the ride. She has been through it of late. Major life changes. So here they go! This ride is to have six stops to spread love and joy. Decked out with lights and more, the RV of fun is on the way! 

Will they make it to all their stops? Will they spread the love and joy they mean to spread? Or will disaster and stress overtake them? Full of humor and love, fun and hope, this book is a wonderful Christmas read! 

My copy came from Revell in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.

The Christmas Joy Ride
by Melody Carlson
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 inChristmas 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 Christmasjoyride--one that could derail the whole venture.

No one captures the heartwarming fun of the Christmasseason quite like Melody Carlson. Fasten your seat belt, because it's going to be an exciting ride!
