Dashing Through the Snow: by Debbie Macomber
Brief Summary from Amazon for “Dashing Through the Snow”: (note: This is a “clean & sweet” romance, nothing steamy!)….
“… NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Savor the magic of the season in a 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.
… (continued below)
(continued) ... 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.

How I discovered this author: I now follow this author on Facebook and other social book platforms. I discovered Debbie Macomber’s books when a neighbor friend loaned me her book named “A Good Yarn“. It is a delightful story based around a knitting shop and its customers and the quaint Blossom Street community. After this one book, I knew I could find a calm easy read with this author when I needed to slow down and have some very relaxed reading. Many of her books have become Hallmark movies as well.
Note: I won this book “fair and square” from an online random drawing contest sponsored by Debbie Macomber. I was under no obligation and received no compensation to write this honest, unbiased review which is completely my own thoughts and opinions.
