Book Review: Mrs. Miracle by Debbie Macomber

Mrs. Miracle by Debbie Macomber book cover and review
Macomber's books always put me in a good mood, and Mrs. Miracle added some Christmas spirit.

Seth is still suffering from the loss of his wife. And recently his twin boys have come to live with him after spending a long time with their grandparents. The boys are a handful, and Seth can't find a housekeeper that can handle them.

Reba is hurting and estranged from her sister after a huge betrayal that Reba cannot forgive.

Magically, a housekeeper appears on Seth's doorstep -- Mrs. Merkle -- and she is truly an angel. The boys begin to call her Mrs. Miracle. 

Mrs. Miracle gives Seth the courage to approach Reba -- they have both been eyeing each other from afar. Now that Reba is in charge of the Christmas program that the twins are participating in, Seth has an "in."

So, I'm sure you see where this is going. But that's okay. We are in this for the "happily ever after." A couple side stories add to the interest. Seth's inlaws are floundering since the twins left and contemplating divorce. Harriett Foster is the church's busybody. She keeps track of perceived transgressions and dutifully reports them to the pastor. Mrs. Miracle will tackle all these issues.

If you are in the mood to start your Christmas reading, this is a good one. There's even a Hallmark movie, so you can follow up with that. And this is part of the Miracle Series, so there are three other books.

  1. Hi Annette - I haven't read D.M. in several years but I am trying to read a few lighter Christmasy books in December. Do you like to indulge in seasonal/holiday reads?

  2. Yes! For some reason, the holidays make me want some feel-good books. I like the holiday thrillers and mysteries too, but they are harder to find. Happy Holidays!

  3. I don't usually read Hallmark-y type books, but this one sounds cute and I'm in the mood for something Christmasy!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments!
