I am a fan of Debbie Macomber's book and this newest Christmas novel was as delightful as her other books!
Synopsis: (from Amazon) 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.
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.
I loved this story, it provided as much comfort as hot cocoa! The characters are likable and realistic, and while I would have like to have had more conversation on the Dickens novel between characters, what was there was insightful.
There is a Hallmark movie coming out this season on Mr. Miracle. It will be fun to see this book come to life.
