Publisher's Summary

Savor the magic of the season with number-one New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber's 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 there's 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 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.

    "Entertaining"

    This book was a wonderful Christmas story with quite a twist. Ashley cannot book a flight to see her mom and so she drives, because it is 4 days from Christmas plus some unforeseen circumstances, she carpools with a guy she has never met, but from first impressions, doesn't really like. They go on a wild adventure and are followed from San Francisco to Seattle by the FBI who think that Ashley is a terrorist on the most wanted list.
    This book had me laughing the whole time, and in the end it left me with a smile on my face!

    "EXCELLENT"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dashing Through the Snow to be better than the print version?

    I did not get the print version, but with the weather just turning a little chilly, this was the perfect story to get you in the wintery mood.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was a toss up between the police detective, hero and heroine. All the characters are very well developed and believable.


    Which character – as performed by Allyson Ryan – was your favorite?

    All! Allyson Ryan is an excellent narrator. Buy anything she does!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It could happen to anyone.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was well worth the purchase. In the typical Debbie Macomber fashion you laugh, get indignant, and even get a little teary eyed and smile a lot. I only wish there had been an epilogue of a wedding and kids.

    "Cute little story"

    It was a little rushed. It could have been slowed and explained details a little more. The ending needed to be lengthened. Overall, I liked it. It just felt rushed to me.

    "Happy and predictable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably, this is a happy book that got me into the holiday spirit. It was just very predictable.


    Do you think Dashing Through the Snow needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I think a follow-up book would be nice, just to know how things turned out in the long run.

    Story
    "Predictable Christmas Rom-Com"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The relationship between Dash and Ashley is frustrating - he's mildly verbally abusive and emotionally closed off, and yet she continues to act like he is an amazing catch. She sticks up for herself sometimes, and he redeems himself pretty well in the end, but I wish he was more respectful towards her...it would go a long way in making me like the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable. But i never expect romantic comedies to surprise me, necessarily.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, probably not. Maybe rent it to watch along with a bottle of wine.


    Any additional comments?

    It seems Ms. Macomber is poking fun at the genre a bit and many of the supporting characters are ridiculously delightful.
