This Christmas, Emily Merkle (call her Mrs. Miracle!) is working in the toy department at Finley's, the last family-owned department store in New York City. And her boss is none other than Jake Finley, the owner's son.For Jake, holiday memories of brightly wrapped gifts, decorated trees and family were destroyed in a Christmas Eve tragedy years before. Now Christmas means just one thing to him and to his father. Profit. Because they need a Christmas miracle to keep the business afloat.Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Holly's widowed brother is in the army and won't be home for Christmas, but at least she can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley's, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to afford it.Fortunately, it's Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others and that includes doing a bit of matchmaking!This Christmas will be different. For all of them.
Call Me Mrs. Miracle was everything I wanted it to be. A simple and heartwarming story around Christmas. You know I love Christmas books but this season I didn't have time to read any except this one, and I'm so glad I picked it!! It was so good, I stayed until midnight to finish it. It has good characters and a well written story, which isn't easy to find in holidays books. I should have known it was going to be good, after all it's Debbie Macomber. The romance was very cute but I'm glad there was more in the story that only romance, some of it was sad and a little bit nostalgic but the ending was a perfect HEA.
Overall, I loved Call Me Mrs. Miracle. Apparently there is a movie (?), it seems like the perfect book to make a movie about. It's the #8 book of the Angelic Intervention series, but you can read it as a stand alone, as I did.
