Dashing Through the Snow (plus a preview of "Mr. Miracle")/Debbie Macomber/244 pgs.
Ashley Davis is desperate to get home to Seattle, Washington, to surprise her widow mother, for Christmas. Dashiell Sutherland is also desperate to get to Seattle, Washington: he has an important job interview, and must be there by Dec. 23rd. They encounter each other, as strangers, at the airline ticket counter. Neither can get a flight out, and their encounter is less than pleasant. When they meet again at the car rental desk, and there is only one car left to rent, they put aside their antagonism towards each other, and decide to share a car ride to Seattle. It's typical Macomber: growing attraction between strangers, unusual circumstances,witty banter, happy ending. It's o.k., but not one of her best efforts.
