Wonderful, heartwarming Christmas story. Loved it!!
reviewed Shirley, Goodness and Mercy (Angels Everywhere, Bk 4) on
Facing financial ruin and forced to reassess his totally self-centered, wasted life, 60-year-old vintner Greg Bennett wanders into a San Francisco church and, uncharacteristically overwhelmed by his failures, asks for forgiveness. What he gets is Archangel Gabriel's impulsive, wacky trio of angelic prayer ambassadors, who manage to help him atone for the past and put his life back togetherAall in time for Christmas. Borrowing heavily from the parable of the Prodigal SonAthere's even a resentful "other son"AMacomber produces a story that is both emotionally touching and lightly sprinkled with humor. In a timely but uncommon move, she uses a hero who is somewhat older than the norm. Despite its brevity, obvious heavenly "coincidences," and not always admirable hero, this novella has all the charm of Touched by an Angel and will please readers who have been patiently waiting for another of Macomber's "holiday angel" books and should appeal to fans of inspirational romance fans as well.

Three sassy angels take on the case of a vintner Greg Bennett, just before the Christmas season. Sixty years old and he has no one to spend Christmas with, no one who cares. He knows he has made mistakes, hurt people, failed in all the ways that matter. As a young man, he fathered a child he never acknowledged. He deserted a friend in his hour of need. He abandoned his own brother whom he hasn't seen in years.
Listlessly wandering the streets of San Francisco, Greg finds himself in a church-and whispers a simple heartfelt prayer. A prayer that wends its way to the Archangel Gabriel, who assigns his favorite angels-Shirley, Goodness and Mercy-to Greg Bennett's case. Because Gabriel knows full well that Greg's going to need the assistance of all three.
Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are determined to create a miracle for Greg. In their usual inimitable way, they set about to show him what life, joy and Christmas are all about.

It was fun revisiting the funny antics of the angels while I got ready for Christmas.

I find these angel stories as delightful in repeated readings and listenings as the first time I discovered them. A holiday favorite!
