From the Inside Flap
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!|Melody Carlson is the award-winning author of more than two hundred books with combined sales of more than six million.

From the Back Cover
"I'm going on a mission, Miranda. I'm going out to spread some Christmas joy along Route 66. And no one is going to stop me."
"But you can't go driving across the entire country in the middle of winter and--"
"I can and I will," Joy declared stubbornly . . .
"I think it's a totally outrageous plan. I can't bear the thought of you being out there by yourself--and at your age too. I'll be scared sick about you being on the road . . ."
Joy had an idea, and she knew this was her chance. She had to give it one good try. "And that is exactly why I want you to come along with me, Miranda."

Carlson never disappoints on her stories. I look forward to a new one to me every Christmas. It sets the season for me.
While I found the concept a bit goofy,it drew me in. Definitely a feel-good story.I'm glad I read it & can recommend it as a 'mood lifter'.
