Book Review: Dashing through the Snow by Debbie Macomber

Dashing Through the Snow by Debbie Macomber book cover and review
Dashing Through the Snow is a quick holiday romance that is sure to put you in the mood. It gave me that warm, holiday feeling that I was hoping for without being overly cheesy.

Ashley unexpectedly gets time off for the holidays and is desperate to get a flight to Seattle to spend it with her mom. Dash needs to get there for an important job interview. When neither one of them can get a flight and there's only one rental car left, they end up traveling together.

So you know where this is going. There is some humorous banter between these too, and they end up with a puppy along for the ride. (One that is way too well behaved compared to puppies I've experienced!) The romance develops naturally--well as naturally as it can in such a short time. The side story about Ashley being mistaken for a terrorist adds some excitement, but I thought the resolution of this part of the plot went way too fast and kind of just fizzled out.

Part of that is because Dashing Through the Snow was so short. Amazon says this book is 256 pages and so does the description of the EBook in the library catalog. But my ereader said 147 pages, and the last 20 of that was the first chapter of another book! I wish Dashing Through the Snow were a bit longer to fill in some of the details and add more drama to the romance.

But there is also something to be said for being able to finish a book in a couple of hours during this busy holiday season. And I did thoroughly enjoy the short time I spent with Dashing Through the Snow. It's cute, funny, romantic, and contains a (very) little bit of adventure.
