Mr. Miracle: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber






Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store.

After trying to make it on her own, Addie has returned home to Tacoma for the holidays, but this time she plans to stay for good, enrolling in the local community college to earn her degree. What she doesn’t plan to do is run into Erich Simmons.

Addie and her next-door neighbor, Erich, are like night and day. Growing up, he was popular and outgoing while she was rebellious and headstrong, and he never missed an opportunity to tease her. Now she intends to avoid him entirely, yet when they’re suddenly forced to spend Christmas together, Addie braces for trouble.

Perhaps it’s the spirit of the season or the magic of mistletoe, but Addie and Erich soon find they have more in common than they thought—and that two people who seem so wrong for each other may actually be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget.

My Review: 

Harry is a very new to earth angel and is on trial, will he get sent home early? He has some help in Celeste, but the reputation left behind by Goodness, Shirley and Mercy, have made things a bit harder for him.
A very cute Christmas story, with Addie coming home, and wishing she had done it before when her Dad was still alive. She is going to go back to school and hoping to spend time with her mother. Her Mom has plans to take a cruise with Julie the next-door neighbor, and they are both looking forward to a different type of Holiday. Julie is also the mother of Erich, her nemeses from growing up, and when you read some of the things he did to her it is a wonder she ever speaks to him.
Now Henry’s task is to bring them together, and not a very easy challenge seeing these two don’t even like each other. There are some really funny happenings and big surprises when Erich breaks both of his wrists.
I felt that this would make a cute Hallmark movie, and I would watch it, the book is a fast read, and a refreshing Christmas read.

I received this book though Net Galley and the Publisher Ballantine Books and was not required to give a positive review
