Dashing Through the Snow
Dashing Through the Snow: A Christmas Novel | Debbie Macomber
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Savor the magic of the season with Debbie Macombers newest 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 theres only one rental car available. Ashley and Dash reluctantly decide to share the car, but neither anticipates the wild ride ahead. At first they drive in silence, but forced into close quarters Ashley and Dash cant help but open up. Not only do they find they have a lot in common, but theres even a spark of romance in the air. Their feelings catch them off guardnever 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 surprisesand their greatest wishes may yet come true. Praise for Dashing Through the Snow and Debbie Macomber Wonderful and heartwarming . . . full of fun, laughter, and love.Romance Reviews Today This Christmas romance from [Debbie] Macomber is both sweet and sincere.Library Journal Theres just the right amount of holiday cheer. . . . This road-trip romance is full of high jinks and the kooky characters Macomber does so well.RT Book Reviews Macombers name is almost as closely linked to Christmas reading as that of Charles Dickens.The Romance Dish, on Mr. Miracle From the Hardcover edition.

Watched Dashing Through the Snow, not my favorite Hallmark movie, but it was okay. It was a little different from the book and I am not sure the changes were good changes.

This was an interesting read, lol! It was a very far-fetched rom-com, but a quick read that ended happily. This was a good light read for a Saturday afternoon.

When Ashley finds herself on the no-fly list, the only way she can get home for Christmas is sharing a rental car with a stranger—Dash. As they head toward Seattle together, their trip becomes all kinds of ridiculous—and I loved it. 😂 This was my third time reading it, and I‘ll probably read it for more Christmases. Now, to watch the movie... #wintergames #merryreaders #holidayread

ElizaMarie @Bookworm54 Hmm.. Its not my type of movie or book. It was bit cheesy. Io mean I know. Christmas Cheesy but.. I did think the book had way too much going on .. and the movie didn't stream line it anyway. I guess the book was a little better because you pictured the banter and them “falling“ in love more than the movie showed -- which I thought it would be the other way around 7d

AkashaVampie Damn girl. I wish I could read like u. I have tried audiobooks but can't get into becuz it makes me feel like I'm not in the story... That just gave me an idea. I still need to finish You (maybe I should do an audio book so it doesn't make me feel so weird) 1w
ElizaMarie @AkashaVampie I used to have a hard time with audio books. Like I could tune them out. But... I started with podcast then I felt like people are talking to me and I had to pay attention.

This book was not what I was expecting. It lacked something for me. It was okay, but not the holiday romance I hoped it would be. The best way to explain it is to say, the book was too long and not long enough at the same time, it was almost too many plots going on and one didn‘t quite fit for me. I would give it ❄️❄️❄️/5

Two strangers forced to share a car to get to Seattle, one to be with family for the holidays and one for a job interview, begin to open up and realize they have a lot in common.

Sounds good to me!! Can‘t wait to read this one.

Okay, fine, then I say we #share it. That makes perfect sense, seeing that we both want to get to Seattle.” “It‘s not happening.” Did Mr. GQ think she was stupid? Others might be influenced by his good looks and his charm, but not her. “For all I know, you could be a serial killer.” “Don‘t be ridiculous,” he countered. “It‘s the perfect solution. I need to get to Seattle and so do you.” “I am not sharing this car with you!” Better safe than sorry.

This time last year, I was on maternity leave watching all of the Hallmark Christmas movies. This year, I‘m working 40+ hours per week, but I‘m getting my holiday joy in by listening to the books the movies were based on. So far so good!

I‘m completely sucked into the Hallmark movie based on this book.

I‘ve never read the book (or heard of it), or read a Debbie Macomber book.

Has anyone ever read this? It doesn‘t have the best review on Goodreads. Is it worth it?

I‘ve also never actually read Christmas themed books.

Yes, I am already watching Christmas movies. I have been for almost 2 weeks now! 🤪

It was okay. Quick and sweet but oh so predictable. I think this is only my 2nd ever Macomber. Not convinced, honestly.

kricheal I've read one by her... wasn't that impressed by it. It was predictable, like you said. I figure I'll give her one more try at some point.. but not for awhile. 2y
Bostonmomx2 She‘s hit and miss. She‘s got some fantastic women‘s fiction novels but also pretty cheesy romance novels that I always skip right by. 2y

If you're looking for a fun, fluffy holiday book- skip this one. The main character was annoying and inconsistent and the plot was beyond unbelievable (even for a Christmas book). The only reason I even finished it was because the audio book was only 4 hours long and I was doing housework.

Meglet I love reviews like this. Learning what people liked or didn‘t like about a book, and why, is why I joined Litsy. Thanks for the honesty! 2y

I really enjoyed this one. I‘d seen the movie on Hallmark Channel and enjoyed that (which is the case with all the movies actually). The beginning started close to the movie, but Hallmark did change things from the book towards the end. Overall it‘s a fun holiday read.

It was ok. A cute and quick romance. I flew through it pretty quickly. If you're looking for a little Christmas romance with just a tiny bit of drama (but not that much) then it's good for that. Didn't really feel too Christmas themed as most of it is spent on the road going home for Christmas, but other then that it doesn't feel that Christmassy in my personal opinion.

I listened to this on audio at work and I thought it was cute but not as good as some of her other books. It was really short for one. This one was very predictable and had little depth. If you never read her books before they are lovely happy ending books. So they are great pick me up books. I recommend her Blossom Street series. They have great characters with real problems that you get attached to.

LeahsBookNest I want to read one of her books! Hopefully in 2017. 3y

So, we're getting some snow right now, and I'm stuck at my office. We closed early, which is why there are very few cars in the parking lot. Everyone is stuck in traffic! I'll wait a bit longer before leaving. Maybe the roads will be plowed by then!😂❄️

PurpleyPumpkin @PrezBookster @brilliantglow Yes, it wasn't all that much, about 4 inches. Just enough to be a nuisance. But it was the snow squalls that were blowing in just before I took this pic that caused them to close the office. You honestly couldn't see much. 3y
PurpleyPumpkin @DGRachel @UwannaPublishme @Bostonmomx2 @TheBookAddict @CocoReads @LauraBeth @MicheleinPhilly @Texreader @kmdartist We're almost there!

PurpleyPumpkin @Bostonmomx2 Meant to say that this is in Toronto and I live north of the city. This was all lake-effect snow and I'm told we're getting more. Boston always seems to get more than it's fair share of snow! 3y
brilliantglow Oh that seems silly to me. They'd never close offices or anything early here because of snow. School buses will be canceled if there's a lot of icy roads but that's about it. Snow squalls definitely suck though. They make getting anywhere difficult. 3y
Bostonmomx2 @PurpleyPumpkin oh lol I don't live in Boston, I have Boston terriers 😂 I guess the name is a little deceiving haha. I actually live in northern Nevada. 3y

Tanner I don't mind the snow that much, but snow squalls are scary. I'm glad I didn't encounter any bad ones until I was almost home. Glad you made it safely; it was a slow drive indeed. 3y

This one was farfetched even for me, so I just had to read it knowing that NO WAY this story could have happened like this. There is plenty of holiday cheer ⛄️plus a little dog! 🐶 I liked this a little less than Starry Night by the same author, which I read a few days ago. (Loved that one!)

I saw that this book has been adapted into a movie. Has anyone seen it?

This makes ten holiday reads for me so far this year! Whoop! 🎄🎅🏼
