This is one of the novels in the Christmas Heartwarmers & Holiday Smiles: 10 Tales of Heart, Hope & Humor - Portion of Proceeds to Benefit St. Jude Research Hospital. Kathi Daley did a magnificent job with this one. This is one of those books that I hope everyone reads if they haven't already. It is an emotional journey of a woman who had no idea if she even had a real family and a PI who was won in a poker game by her now dead foster mother. Since the PI would not fly they traveled by car all over the place searching for clues. What they ultimately found brought very happy tears to my eyes!

Road to Christmas Past By; Kathi Daley Road to Christmas Past is the first romance story I have read by Daley. It has mystery in it , but nothing like the cozy mysteries Kathi Daley is known for. I absolutely loved it and would love to see a series written on this story and the characters. I do want to say that when your start to read Road to Christmas past have you plenty reading time , because it kept me up, way in the night trying to finish it. When I started it I did not want to put it down till the end. Holly received a handsome and gorgeous man as an early Christmas present at her door from her aunt Meg. Ben tells her that he is hers that her aunt won his time in a card game. Holly grew up in a foster home. She now thinks she may have a sister. This story is mostly a road trip going through different states and all of weather.One place leads to another . Can Holly find answers to her questions? What about Ben , can Holly trust him? Can he help Holly?

Emotionally Charged and Uplifting Road to Christmas Past is an emotionally charged and uplifting book written by Kathi Daley. The book is beautifully written, flows smoothly, the storyline is well plotted, and the characters are well developed and relatable. While this isn’t a cozy mystery, it’s a wonderful combination of compassion, friendship, sweet romance, mystery, and discovery and contains no violence, adult situations, or inappropriate language. I highly recommend this book. Holly Thompson is 27 years old and is a successful advice columnist for a weekly women’s magazine who lives in New York City. When Holly was a few days old, she was the only survivor of an automobile accident and investigators couldn’t identify her so she was sent to live in a foster home run by a wonderful woman named Aunt Meg in Moosehead, Minnesota where she stayed until she went to college. Aunt Meg recently passed away and left her home to Holly but prior to her passing, arranged for an early Christmas present to be delivered to Holly by Ben Holiday, a private investigator, who Meg played poker with each week. The present was Ben’s services until Christmas to try to unravel the mystery of Holly’s birth, a DVD made by Meg, and two matching sapphire and diamond necklaces that were found in diaper bags at the accident scene. This book takes us on the heartwarming journey of Holly trying to discover the mystery of her past and figure out her future.

The further down the road you go, the more you will fall for this story. Holly knew Aunt Meg was not biological family but that did not mean she wasn't as close and as caring as any biological mother could be. Noel may not be Holly's real sister, but what they have is probably closer than most sisters bonds. Family comes in many forms and sometimes can even be formed in ways that surprise a person. As the story opens, Holly has a good life. She is living in New York, has a job she really loves and an assistant that is really more like a partner, making her job even better. Regardless of the miles between them, and differences in lifestyles, Holly and Noel are still as close as ever. The only sad spot is that beloved Aunt Meg had recently passed away. So it is a MAJOR surprise when Holly releaves a Chrismas gift from Aunt Meg. This gift is what sets Holly off down the road to finding out more about herself, and about family she never knew she could find. The road is both a physical and an emotional one.  What start out as very weak clues to Holly's true past, get built up bit by bit, like rolling a snowball.  It does't hurt that she has a gorgeous and intelligent investicative P.I. by her side, the gift from Aunt Meg. This story is not only a delightful mystery, it takes the reader on a roller coaster of an emotional ride.

This book was like a "feel-good chick flick" kind of book -a love story- with a mystery to discover. It was really well written and I enjoyed it a lot. I loved the author's use of descriptive language throughout. This is a stand alone book, but Kathi Daley also writes several series: Zoe Donovan Mysteries  and TJ Jensen Paradise Lake Mysteries.Do yourself a favor and read those as well.

I loved this story. The characters are very likeable and the premise is so different that it keeps you reading until the very last page. Hallmark should make this into a holiday movie, because, while it is kind of a boy meets girl story, it is more the story of Holly finding out who she is while she embarks on a cross country trip to find her family. Holly is a New York based successful advice columnist on the verge of being syndicated. She grew up in a foster home after being rescued from a burning car within days of her birth. After her foster mother dies, Holly gets a visit from Ben, a private investigator her foster mother hired to help Holly find out if she has family. As they travel across the US (Ben doesn't fly), they meet people who help them unravel the clues to Holly's identity.
