One Thanksgiving my daughter drove with me from central Wisconsin to the Twin Cities in rain, ice and snow. It was an agonizingly long journey but she was undaunted. Should have been a 4-4 1/2 hour trip but was lots longer.(less)

I really am at a loss as to find anything positive to say about this book. Debbie Macomber is a huge, huge author, with dozens and dozens of books to her name, and to be honest I was expecting Dashing Through The Snow to be one of my Christmas hits in the reading department, this was so much of a miss it is not even funny.
To be honest I am actually struggling to believe that this book has been written by this author. I was expecting a heart-warming story-line, lik ...more
This was a sweet little Christmas read :)
Dash and Ashley are both trying to get to Seattle before Christmas, yet both of them wait until the last moment to try to get a plane. We all know there is not flights available so after some arguing they decide to share the last rental car and drive from San Francisco area to Seattle. Dash has an interview he has to make on the 23rd and Ash just wants to get home and see her mom for Christmas.
They run into issues alo ...more
When the airlines are fully booked up before Christmas, Ash and Dash (yes, really) are forced to share a hire car to drive from San Francisco to Seattle in this road trip story that is a quick, light, easy read. We know exactly what is going to happen from the first moment they mee ...more
Those who know me well are aware that I’m not big on Christmas cheer; some go as far to call me a Grinch.
Why the hell is she reading a Christmas novel, you ask? The reason I requested Dashing Through the Snow book from NetGalley was not because it was a Christmas story, but because the plot looked like fun and cute (and it just so happened to take place during Christmas).
And I was right. It was one of those stories that you need ...more

It has become my annual tradition to listen to this novel at least once during the Christmas, yet I still never fail to smile because of the characters and the situations they encounter.
Furthermore, Allyson Ryan did an incredible job at expertly bringing Ash and Dash to life. Her voice was calming and cheery; perfect for narrating a De ...more
Overall, cute and funny. I could have did without the five instances of cussing and four/five mentions of things that I didn't care to hear about... Due to that, I think I liked the movie better. ;)
But ... I was in the mood for holiday fiction, and my mom is a diehard romance fan. Not the x-rated stuff, but the cozy romance books, like this one. I’m also ...more
I don't know how Macomber though it was doable to write a believable and engaging love story that stretches itself only over 48 hours, and involves a wild police chase/investigation. Those two ideas just didn't mix well for me and I could hardly concentrate on the relationship aspect because it was constantly interrupted by a police analy ...more
Ashley Davison is hoping to get from San Francisco to Seattle in time to surprise her mother for Christmas. When she arrives at the airport there are no flights available, and in her desperate situation she agrees to share a ride with Dashiell Sutherland who is also on his way up north for a job interview.
During the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sometimes that's exactly what you need. A bit of absurd fun.

I had only read one more book from Debbie Macomber before this and that was Last One Home. I read it last year and I found it okay. It was fine enough to make me pick another book from this author. Hence, this book!
This book is set in Christmas and the cover perfectly depicts this theme. And the cover is really beautiful!
