Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Michelle and Max are not planning on a happy holiday. Their marriage is in shambles and the D word has entered their vocabulary. But now their youngest daughter, Julia, wants everyone to come to her new house in Idaho for Christmas, and she's got the guest room all ready for Mom and Dad. Oh, joy. Their other daughters, Audrey and Shyla, are driving up from California and hoping to meet a sexy rancher for Audrey along the way. What they don't plan on is getting stranded on a ranch when the car breaks down. The ones with the shortest drive are Grandma and Grandpa, also known as Hazel and Warren. It's still a bit of a trek, and Hazel doesn't like the idea of driving all that way in snow, but Warren knows they'll have no problem. They have a reliable car, and snow tires and chains if they need them. They'll be fine. Surprises lie in store for all three sets of intrepid travelers as they set out on three very different adventures, all leading to one memorable family Christmas.

    Michelle and Max Turnbull have both come to the conclusion that their marriage is five years past its sell-by date. The couple's imminent plans for divorce, however, are put on hold when their youngest daughter, Julia, invites everyone in the family to spend the holidays with her in Idaho. Now, for the sake of Julia and their other two daughters, Shyla and Audrey, as well as Max's parents, Warren and Hazel, Michelle and Max agree to play the happily married couple until after the holidays. Roberts neatly packages and then gift wraps the road trip to Idaho adventures of three different groups of Turnbulls, whose all-too-relatable foibles and flaws make them all that much more endearing, into a comfortably cozy, dryly humorous tale brimming with holiday charm and cheer.
