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.

Women's Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Dashing Through the Snow, Debbie Macomber, Hallmark Movie, Amazon Books, Christmas Books, Christmas Novella, Barnes and Noble(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.

Location and Appeal:  This is a present day story that starts out in San Francisco when two singles’ paths cross when trying to reach Seattle.  It is just before Christmas, no flights are available and there is only one rental car left at the airport for the trip.  They have no choice but to share the car and trust the situation to reach their respective destinations.  How can you not love Debbie Macomber and her stories?  Her stories are consistent and an easy relaxing reading experience.  Many have also become Hallmark Movies.  She has more than 170 million copies of her books in print worldwide!!Women's Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Dashing Through the Snow, Debbie Macomber, Hallmark Movie, Amazon Books, Christmas Books, Christmas Novella, Barnes and Noble

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.

      Hey, Leanna! Sorry for my late response, I did reply but it somehow disappeared from this post. It is so nice to block off some quiet time for reading something that eases the mind and spirit. I am an early riser and do my best reading then, sometimes at bedtime but it tends to make me nod off not too far into the story, ha! Thanks so much for visiting, Merry Christmas 🙂
