Summary

USA Today best-selling author Lexy Timms shares a holiday romance that’ll warm the heart and having you wishing on love — or beating it with a stick! 

"Love brings up emotions that run the gamut from agony to ecstasy. Love can inspire us to accomplish some of the craziest and most amazing feats."  

Colin Murphy is the CEO of Murphy Inc and is a workaholic. Christmas, or any holiday in face, doesn't mean much to him. When his business trip travel plans get interrupted by a freak snowstorm, he’s forced to find a way home by other means. 

Abigail Thompson can’t wait for this year to be over. After losing her job, her boyfriend, and her apartment, she’s ready to go home for a much-needed break and to regroup. But when her plane is grounded because of a snow storm, she has to find another way. She makes her way to the car rentals only to find the last car has just been given to a tall, dark, sexy man. Definitely not Santa, his name is Colin Murphy. When Colin finds out they’re headed in the same direction, he offers her a lift. It’s nearly Christmas, after all. 

What should be an easy eight-hour drive turns into two days of mishaps and mayhem. 

She knows every Christmas song by heart, even though she can’t carry a tune. She’s happy, he’s a real Christmas Grinch. Will this unplanned fiasco be the start of something magical?

Excellent humour

I love it when characters seem to find the perfect partner with complete opposites of themselves. This is a relationship that on paper is a disaster however the leading lady brings so much happiness to a miserable man it just works. Melina and Brian give a fantastic performance.

STEAMY is the word, but not interesting or good

The idea of the story was nice, even all the little side trips and soem character development, but the steamy romance wasn't steamy it was crude, I got this for a fun romantic Christmas story and it bombed, trashy sex is not romance

Fun story!

Lexy does a good job of character building in a short time to pull you in. Characters are believable and find yourself invested in the story. Colin is the ultimate workaholic yet Abby opens his eyes to the true meaning of Christmas and the keys to happiness to accompany his success!

Good christmas story

Driving Home Christmas, an Audiobook by Lexy Timms was a love/hate story that I am still not sure about. It’s the story of Colin and Abigail. He is a wealthy CEO on his way to an important meeting. The plane is grounded because of weather. She is also on this flight and is desperate to get home. She finagles a ride from him…much to his chagrin.

I didn’t like either of these characters and that made getting through the story somewhat difficult. They didn’t have chemistry and I’m not sure how they were even attracted to each other. Towards the end it was better.

This story was narrated by Brian Martin and Marina Shein who did a good job, though her voice was really irritating, at times.

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

A most joyous ride!

Driving Home for Christmas is a wonderfully joyous holiday story with an undercurrent of grinchy behavior! Collin Murphy is a billionaire entrepreneur flying to a meeting in Minneapolis where he will be giving a presentation about an expansion he wants for his company. He is the host of an important charity event, right after the business meeting, that he can't miss. Abby Thompson is on the same flight, trying to get home to her parents' home in Burnesville, MN. She has just lost everything. Her job, her boyfriend and her best friend who was cheating with Abby's boyfriend! She is completely miserable and just wants to get home to celebrate Christmas with her mom and dad.  When their plane runs into weather and grounds them in Wichita, KS, they are about to continue their journey together, much to Colin's chagrin. He rented the last of the cars and Abby is left out in the cold until she pleads with him through her eyes to please help her out. He shakes his head, knowing he's trapped, and they're on their way. Along the road, Abby is the picture of the season, singing her favorite Christmas cards and laughing at memories of Christmases past. Colin starts out stoic, and becomes even more irritated as he drives. Where those negative feelings are coming from, Abby doesn't know and she just can't understand how he could not at least like Christmas. The answers are waiting to be shared, but he's not ready, yet. He refers to his family as the reason he doesn't celebrate at all. They start to open up to each other, but real communication is what they're missing. Their night together in a ratty motel was an enlightening experience for both but their problems with communicating still kept them from seeing eye to eye on anything. Colin heard everything Abby shared about the beauty of the Christman season, but he didn't take it to heart. Or did he! My heart was full when Colin discovered his truth and knew how the rest of the stay in Minneapolis was going to go. Abby's mother is a perfect example of the mom with the biggest heart who will do anything to help the man who adores her daughter. I would love to see an epilogue or sequel because they have so much more to their story. 
The narration was beautifully done by Brian Martin and Melina Schein. Their dynamic voices depicted each character in a way that reflected their feelings and personality, adding to the enjoyment of the story.
