About the book:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Mrs. Miracle shows an ordinary family that they are blessed beyond belief in this uplifting holiday tale from Debbie Macomber.
As the holiday season begins, Laurel McCullough could use some good news. She and her husband, Zach, have been praying for a baby that seems more and more like an impossible dream, and they’ve had to move in with her beloved grandmother, Helen, who’s having trouble taking care of herself. But when Laurel contacts a local home-care organization for help, there are no caregivers available.
Then Mrs. Miracle appears at the door. No stranger to lending a helping hand to a family in need, Mrs. Miracle reveals herself to be nothing short of a godsend. Helen’s even convinced she’s an angel! And Laurel can’t help but notice that with Mrs. Miracle’s companionship, Helen is noticeably happier and more engaged, decorating the family Christmas tree and setting up the nativity. In the meantime, Laurel and Zach encounter curious signs, all pointing toward the arrival of a special baby.
As Christmas approaches, there appears to be even more to Mrs. Miracle than meets the eye. In a classic tale of Debbie Macomber’s signature seasonal magic, Laurel, Zach, and Helen experience a holiday of heavenly proportions.
A Mrs. Miracle Christmas by Debbie Macomber is the eleventh book in the contemporary romance Angelic Intervention series. Each book of this series is going to feature a new lead couple so the books can be read as a standalone or in any order and understood although some characters do carry over book to book keeping to the Angelic theme.
This holiday season Laurel and Zach McCullough are a young couple who want nothing other than to start a family of their own but fate hasn’t been on their side just yet. When Laurel’s grandmother, Helen, begins to need around the clock help the couple move in with her but still find themselves looking for an extra hand.
The agency Laurel contacts tells her no one is available but soon Mrs. Miracle arrives and turns out to be just what the family needs. Helen begins to look and feel so much better however Laurel and Zach get a touch concerned when Helen begins insisting Mrs. Miracle is an actual real angel sent to help them.
Most contemporary romance fans will be familiar with Debbie Macomber’s stories so I shouldn’t need to say how wonderful her writing is but I will anyway for those that may not have tried her books yet. I hadn’t read the others in this series but the story flows smoothly as if a standalone and such a beautiful, touching holiday read it was. Definitely recommend.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
