Dashing Through the Snow

We have read/listened to Mary Higgins Clark books for years. She is one of the very few reliably clean authors out there. When we would drive cross country, we would stop at Cracker Barrel and look for her books to listen to in the car, knowing that they would be clean enough for the kids to hear. I have usually enjoyed them but don't find them too memorable. I read her latest book this summer, however, and was disappointed in it. The ending was very abrupt and choppy. It seemed as if she just got tired of it and they published anyway. I'm sorry to say that I don't even remember the name of it.
Dashing Through the Snow was like most of her books, very clean, and a fun quick read without a whole lot of depth to it. I decided to review because it was on the bestseller list back before Christmas. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get it from the library until a couple of weeks after Christmas. Oh well. It is part of the Christmas series that she writes with her daughter and the main characters will be known to her fans but it isn't necessary to read her other books to enjoy this one. It is a lightweight piece of fluff for those times when that is all you need and I enjoyed it but probably won't remember it very well. Rated G.
