About 2 weeks ago I watched Mrs. Miracle on the Hallmark Channel. Had to read the book. Of course the book is always better then the movie but I really liked the movie. The story is about widower Seth and Reba, who caught her fiance with her sister just before they got married and of course Emily Merkle, Mrs. Miracle. She comes into Seth and his twin boys lives and totally changes it for the better. She get Seth and Reba together by a miracle. There are little subplots in this book but I won't say anything you'll just have to read the book for yourselves.

You gotta love angels!! This is a wonderful story of love, forgiveness, family and faith. My favorite Mrs. Merkle quote (each chapter starts with a quote or saying from Mrs. Merkle)is "You have to wonder about humans. They think God is dead and Elvis is alive." The book also includes a few recipes.

Wonderful author and her books - whether it's Debbie's Cedar Cove series of books or any of her novels.

Mrs. Miracle and Call Me Mrs. Miracle are both very touching books, best read at Christmas time. Or at least that's when I read them...

Highly recommend any of Debbie's books.

Father of six-year-old twins boys, Widower Seth Webster is at his wits end and needs a miracle. She shows up in the form of a heaven-sent housekeeper named Mrs. Merkle. Mrs. Miracle, as the boys call her, dishes out words of wisdom and shares advice about taking risks and letting go of the past. She also hooks Seth up with Reba, a beautiful travel agent who has wounds of her own.

This is a busy book. Not only do we get Seth and Reba who both have problems to overcome; but we also read about Seth's in-laws and the problems in their marriage. This is a nice holiday story that reads very fast. It was also a bit of a tearjerker for me. My rating: 4 Stars.

I really enjoyed this book. I thought I had read everything by Debbie Macomber that had to do with angels but I never read this one before.

From backcover:


Seth Webster, a widower with six-year old twins, needs nothing short of a miracle to feel whole again. With his heart still scarred by the loss of his wife, he feels overwhelmed trying to care for his children, get dinner on the table, and keep his job. Then a heaven sent housekeeper arrives. She dishes out words of wisdom as delectable as her chicken pot pie. She shares advice about taking risks and taking vacations; about keeping the memory of the children's mother alive for them, while letting go of the past; and about a certain beautiful travel agent whose own heart bears deep wounds - a woman who is a stranger to Seth...and his destiny.

I really liked Mrs. Miracle and the recipes included are pretty good. However, it seemed as though the author got tired of the characters or had a limit on length because all of a sudden, in just a few pages, everyone is forgiven and they are all going to live happily ever after.
