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.

Dashing through the Snow!

This was very similar to another Christmas book I read. But they ended differently and happily in love. I would of like story with characters a little more developed. But a great seasonal read. Debbie Macomber always does her books with a special fun touch. Great book.

Enjoyable at any time of year

I love Debbie's female main character here. She inspires us to be kind in the midst of turmoil (though true human reaction is portrayed), to give others the benefit of the doubt, and to be solution oriented.

Truly enjoyed. Thank you, Ms. Macomber!

Another Debbie Macomber Christmas Hit!

I loved this upbeat, topical Christmas novel! Sat in the context of a recent Afghanistan Vet, the world of domestic terrorism, Homeland Security, and over-achieving FBI counterintelligence-terrorism agents, and sweet, innocent people, this book had it all. It had a fun flirtation...love story. It also had a frustrating antithesis that kept me on pins and needles. At last, it’s three days before Christmas when “they all live ever after.” The couple are as delightful characters as you will ever meet. It’s a cleverly written book presented in a great performance. This one, I highly recommend!

Sweet just in time for Christmas!!

I love these sweet books. They make me happy and in this world where we are bombarded with such hate and vitriol, this is the perfect antidote!!

Cute

Definitely very cute and an easy listen. I'm a huge Christmas fan and was a little bummed there wasn't more of it than just the fact that it was mentioned that it was the holiday weekend.
The narrator was good with the voices and I could always tell who she was portraying at the time
