The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson is a totally delightful Christmas offering. Nobody does Christmas quite like Melody Carlson. Every year a new tale comes out and every year I just have to buy it.
Eighty five year old Joy is moving two thousand miles to be closer to her sons. They think she is flying down but Joy has other plans. She has dusted off her old RV, decorated it with Christmas bling and is ready to go. Her neighbour Miranda is worried about Joy travelling so far on her own. She shares her worries and finds herself conscripted into joining Joy!
On their journey Joy has six stop offs to make. As Christmas Joy, she wrote a blog and set a competition asking for people to write in about those who deserved a special treat at Christmas. Joy chose her winners. Now the magic begins.
