Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber

Title: Mr. Miracle
Author: Debbie Macomber
Pages: 256
Year: 2014
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

About the book:

     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.

My review:

     A light, entertaining Christmas story.

     Debbie Macomber once again develops quite an array of characters. Addie Folsom displays her maturity throughout the story as she deals with a difficult situation and a difficult neighbor. Harry Mills is a guardian angel on his first mission to earth. I really enjoyed Debbie’s ideas on what it is like for an angel to take on a human body.

     There is only one thing that did disappoint me in this novel. I’ve read a number of other Christmas stories by Debbie. Each of them had multiple riotous comedic scenes in them. I only found a few amusing scenes in this story and I missed being able to let loose with laughter.

     I enjoyed this book and am giving it 4 stars. I’ve grown to expect more comedy from Debbie’s Christmas stories. I do highly recommend this book.
