PRAISE FOR Dashing Through the Snow
“This Christmas romance from [Debbie] Macomber is both sweet and sincere.”—Library Journal
“Quirky heroine Ashley brings the laughs and is the driving force behind this hilarious read, while Dash brings a sense of groundedness with his stable military persona. There’s just the right amount of holiday cheer to remind you it’s Christmas. Ashley and Dash are a realistic example of how opposites attract. This road-trip romance is full of high jinks and the kooky characters Macomber does so well.”—RT Book Reviews


Savor the magic of the season with Debbie Macomber’s newest Christmas novel, filled with warmth, humor, the promise of love, and a dash of unexpected adventure.

Ashley Davison, a graduate student in California, desperately wants to spend the holidays with her family in Seattle. Dashiell Sutherland, a former army intelligence officer, has a job interview in Seattle and must arrive by December 23. Though frantic to book a last-minute flight out of San Francisco, both are out of luck: Every flight is full, and there’s only one rental car available. Ashley and Dash reluctantly decide to share the car, but neither anticipates the wild ride ahead.

At first they drive in silence, but forced into close quarters Ashley and Dash can’t help but open up. Not only do they find they have a lot in common, but there’s even a spark of romance in the air. Their feelings catch them off guard—never before has either been so excited about a first meeting. But the two are in for more twists and turns along the way as they rescue a lost puppy, run into petty thieves, and even get caught up in a case of mistaken identity. Though Ashley and Dash may never reach Seattle in time for Christmas, the season is still full of surprises—and their greatest wishes may yet come true.

REVIEW: While I was reading Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber... I kept thinking about how this book should become a Hallmark movie, and it turns out it is! Of course with changes, but I'm sure it's charm wasn't lost in the film. 

I enjoyed pretty much everything about it's novel. It felt like a movie, and was really simple to read...  It's the kind of book you could sit and read till you finish it. The storyline was very fun, the main character was really quirky, plus with her love interest was seemed to compliment her greatly. Yeah, the book isn't the best, but it got the job done, for what it is, and if you're like me, and enjoy reading a good cheesy romance... this is a good one.

One, thing... It was advertised as a Christmas novel, and yeah it took place during Christmas time, and it was snowing... but at times I would forget this book is even a "Christmas" novel, but maybe that was just me. I just felt like the only time I remembered it was a almost Christmas, was when someone said "Merry Christmas" or something... but for sure it was a winter novel.

Overall: Entertaining read, and am looking forward to re-experience this story, by watching the film... Wonder how I'll like the changes. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good cheesy romance, with fun quirky, but real characters.

  My Rating: ★★★★☆ 
 ( o u t . o f . f i v e . stars)
