The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson…
What”s the book about?
Miranda did not put adventure on her Christmas list, but thanks to her eighty-five-year-old neighbor Joy, that’s exactly what she’s getting this year. When Joy tells Miranda that she plans to drive an old RV decked out in Christmas decorations from their Chicago neighborhood to her new retirement digs in Phoenix–in the dead of winter, no less–the much younger Miranda insists that Joy cannot make such a trip by herself. Besides, a crazy trip with Joy would be more interesting than another Christmas home alone. Unemployed and facing foreclosure, Miranda feels she has nothing to lose by packing a bag and heading off to Route 66. But Joy has a hidden agenda for their Christmas joyride–and a hidden problem that could derail the whole venture.
No one captures the heartwarming fun of the Christmas season quite like Melody Carlson. Fasten your seat belt, because it’s going to be an exciting ride!

Another amazing Christmas book on my bookshelf.
Joy was an elderly woman who loved Christmas and wanted to spread the joy of the Christmas spirit to everyone… and yet she knew it was impossible for her to do, she managed to come to those who was desperate and lost any sense of hope in the last two month of the year. She posted a contest on her blog, with the help of her good friend Miranda, to visit and bring Christmas for those who needed it. She chose six people, she knew who needed some lighting up. She read their stories over and over again, but then she came to careful planning.
What can I say… Joy rocked on. She planned everything… the road trip and all the little details… She brightened many lives through that trip, while she had the heart attack and was admitted to the hospital.
Great story with a very great ending.
