My Review Summary: A Heartwarming Holiday Read
Genre: Holiday Contemporary Romance
Similar to Debbie Macomber’s wonderful novel Mrs. Miracle, her newest Christmas novel Mr. Miracle is about an angel sent to Earth to help some folks in need. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Macomber’s latest offering. Unlike the previous novel, you know from the first pages that this is Harry Mills’ first earthly assignment – one he’s been long awaiting, and one he hopes will lead to many more such assignments. He has plenty of motivation to do a great job but has a little trouble adjusting to being human and being among humans, causing quite a few misadventures along the way. His first assignment is helping Addie, who has mixed feelings about her old next door neighbor Erich when she’s suddenly forced to spend time with him around Christmas. Throw in Harry’s quirky celestial supervisor and a few other colorful characters and you have the makings of a fun holiday read.
If you aren’t a big book reader, the Hallmark Channel already has the movie version of this new novel set to premiere on Saturday, December 6, at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT, and scheduled to air multiple times until the end of December. However, the book would make a nice gift for all the Macomber fans on your holiday shopping list. Just click on the image above for a direct link to the book on Amazon.
Cushions: Funny, heartwarming, no explicit sex, no profanity, no violence, holiday/Christmas fun – what can I say – I’m a sucker for a sweet sentimental holiday book (or movie).
Cautions: A little shorter than your normal novel – 274 pages in my Kindle version, and a sometimes predictable plot.
This is a fast read, but kept moving at a good pace and kept me smiling most of those pages. It’s a real feel-good story that stands alone, but leaves an opening for Harry to have more opportunities for new assignments and adventures – if only he can stay out of trouble.
