Dashing Through the Snow

A Christmas Novel
Borrow Borrow

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Savor the magic of the season with 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.
Praise for Dashing Through the Snow and Debbie Macomber

Excerpts-
  • From the cover Chapter One



    "What? Are you kidding?" Ashley Davison couldn't believe what she was hearing. The reservation clerk for Highland Airlines glanced up nervously. "I'm sorry, but I can't sell you a ticket to Seattle. If you'd kindly step aside and wait a few minutes—­"

    "Can't or won't?" Ashley cut in, growing more frustrated and worried by the minute. She drew in a deep breath in an effort to control her patience. The woman behind the desk, whose name tag identified her as Stephanie, was clearly having a bad day. Getting upset with her, Ashley realized, wasn't going to help the situation. She made a determined effort to lower her voice and remain cool-­headed.

    "I . . . I can't. I'm sorry . . ."

    Ashley refused to take no for an answer. Surprising her mother by flying home for Christmas was too important. "I understand getting a ticket to Seattle three days before Christmas is pushing my luck," she said, doing her best to appear calm and composed. "If I'd been able to book a seat sooner, I would have. Getting Christmas off from work was a complete surprise. I attend graduate school and I also work at a diner. I hated to miss the holidays with my mother, but I didn't have any choice. She's a widow and my brother lives in Texas and can't get home for Christmas, so there's only me." Perhaps if the reservation clerk knew her story, she might reconsider the can't sell you a ticket part of this discussion.

    "Then my boss decided to close the diner between Christmas and New Year's for renovations after the refrigeration unit broke, and then he thought he may as well get a new deep fryer, too, so it just made sense to close down. All this happened at the very last minute, and because he felt so bad he gave me a Christmas bonus so I could fly home."

    "I'm so sorry . . ." Stephanie said again, looking nervous. "If you'd kindly move aside and wait a few minutes."

    "I haven't seen my mother since last August," Ashley continued, refusing to give up easily. "I wanted to surprise her. It would mean the world to both of us to be together over the holidays. Would you please look again? I'll take any seat, any time of the day or night."

    Stephanie didn't so much as glance down at her computer screen with even a pretense of trying to accommodate her. "I can't . . . I wish I could, but I can't."

    Ashley couldn't help wonder what was up with this can't business. That made it all the more nonsensical.

    "You can't," she repeated. "There must be more of an explanation than that. It just doesn't make sense."

    The reservation clerk frowned. Her eyes roamed about the area as if she was looking for someone. That, too, was irritating. It was as if she was seeking a replacement or someone to rescue her.

    "I believe you have your answer," the man behind her in line said impatiently. He shifted from one foot to the other, letting Ashley know he didn't appreciate her arguing with the clerk.

    Ashley whirled around and confronted him face-­to-­face. "In case anyone forgot to mention it, this is Christmas. How about a little peace on earth and goodwill toward men? Be patient. I'll be finished as soon as possible and then you can talk to Stephanie, but for now it's my turn."

    In response, he rolled his eyes.

    Ashley returned her attention to the woman at the counter. "If you can't find me a seat on a plane to Seattle, I'd be willing to fly standby."

    Stephanie shook her head.

    "All the flights to Seattle are already booked?" The man next in line blurted out the question.

    Stephanie's eyes widened as if she, too, was surprised he'd...
