Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber

Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber
Published by Ballantine Books in October 2015

"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." -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
I truly enjoyed this quirky Christmas novel.  Two unlikely characters pair up to travel to Seattle with some federal agents trailing behind.  Ashley and Dash slowly warmed up to each other over the course of the novel.  Their relationship never felt forced, and was very entertaining to watch.  The whole case of mistaken identity was a little harder to explain away.  It did provide some interesting bits of comic relief.

I know that if anyone wants a cute Christmas or winter-themed book to cozy up with by a fire with some hot chocolate, I will recommend this book.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
