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’s one of those stories that you need to read in one sitting because it’s so friggin cute.
Basically, complete strangers Ashley and Dash both need to get to Seattle by December 23. All flights are full and there’s only one rental car left, so they decide to rent it together and start the drive from California. An adventure against time ensues, there’s a snow storm, a case mistaken identity, and a cute puppy. Throughout the peril-filled drive, the two of them get to know each other and maybe a romance blossoms?
Yes, you have to go into this book with a sense of suspended disbelief – no way would the FBI be that incompetent – but it was adorable and had some genuinely funny moments. Throughout reading this I kept thinking how it would make a cute movie, and it turns out I was right! According to IMDB it will be released December 13 as a TV movie.
I had actually never heard of Debbie Macomber before, but a quick browse through her Goodreads page tells me she’s quite a well established author. Next time I want a cute and quick story, I’ll be looking through her works!
I received an advance reading copy from NetGalley for an honest review.
