Melody Carlson in her new book, “All Summer Long book coverAll Summer Long” Book Two in the Follow Your Heart series published by Revell brings us into the life of Tia D’Amico.

From the back cover:  She’s ready to take on a new challenge. What she doesn’t expect is an old flame.

Tia D’Amico is thrilled to move to San Francisco to help her aunt transform an old luxury yacht into an upscale floating restaurant. What’s not to love? Sunset dinner cruises, posh wedding receptions–the possibilities are endless and far more appetizing than staying in a monotonous job in her Podunk hometown. Besides, some of her best memories are tied to San Francisco–especially the memory of Leo Parker, her crush from a long-ago sailing camp.

When Leo Parker himself turns out to be the yacht’s captain, Tia is floating on air. But will it all come crashing down around her when she discovers his heart belongs to someone else?

Get ready for a romantic summer in San Francisco, where the future glistens brighter than the Bay at sunset.

Of course if you are a fan of Ms. Carlson then, for sure, this book is an absolute joy ride. A floating restaurant yacht, Tia is the Chef, Leo is the Captain and the sparks are going to fly. Ms. Carlson has given us a story not only of hopes and dreams but of fulfilling our purpose in life. On top of everything there is also the romance. Tia is such a remarkable character that we instantly feel that we have been friends with her our whole lives and we want what is best for her.

Melody Carlson in her new book, “joy ride book coverThe Christmas Joy Ride” Book One in the Follow Your Heart series published by Revell brings us into the lives of Joy and Miranda.

From the back cover:  Miranda did not put adventure on her Christmas list, but thanks to her eighty-five-year-old neighbor Joy, that’s exactly what she’s getting this year. When Joy tells Miranda that she plans to drive an old RV decked out in Christmas decorations from their Chicago neighborhood to her new retirement digs in Phoenix–in the dead of winter, no less–the much younger Miranda insists that Joy cannot make such a trip by herself. Besides, a crazy trip with Joy would be more interesting than another Christmas home alone. Unemployed and facing foreclosure, Miranda feels she has nothing to lose by packing a bag and heading off to Route 66. But Joy has a hidden agenda for their Christmas joyride–and a hidden problem that could derail the whole venture.

No one captures the heartwarming fun of the Christmas season quite like Melody Carlson. Fasten your seat belt, because it’s going to be an exciting ride!

It begins with the gaudily decorated RV on the cover that lets you know that within these pages is going to be quite a story. Melody Carlson knows how to write and she has delivered one of the finest Christmas stories yet. There is a reason why there are so many stories about Christmas on the television about this time and that reason is everyone loves a good story where the spirit of Christmas changes a person by freeing them from their burdens to allow them to be themselves.  That’s why everyone wishes Christmas could last all year round. “The Christmas Joy Ride” is all about Joy and Miranda driving an RV from Chicago to Phoenix because Joy is being forced into assisted living. “The Christmas Joy Ride” is one sweet read that you might want to read twice and then keep it handy to read again next year. Joy and Miranda are such remarkable characters that we instantly feel that we have been friends with them our whole lives and we want what is best for them. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this book as you will want to finish it before going to bed.  “The Christmas Joy Ride” is an exciting adventure from start to finish.
