Beloved author Debbie Macomber celebrates the most wonderful time of the year in this heartwarming Christmas novel of romance, hope, and the comforts of home--coming soon as a Hallmark Channel original movie!
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.

Addie 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.

Praise for Mr. Miracle
"[Debbie] Macomber spins another sweet, warmhearted holiday tale that will be as comforting to her fans as hot chocolate on Christmas morning." -- Kirkus Reviews
"This gentle, inspiring romance will be a sought-after read." -- Library Journal
"Macomber cheerfully presents a holiday story that combines the winsomeness of a visiting angel (similar to Clarence from It's a Wonderful Life ) with the more poignant soulfulness of A Christmas Carol to bring to life a memorable reading experience." -- Bookreporter
"Macomber's Christmas novels are always something to cherish. Mr. Miracle is a sweet and innocent story that will lift your spirits during the holidays and throughout the year. Celebrating the comforts of home, family traditions, forgiveness and love, this is the perfect, quick Christmas read." -- RT Book Reviews
"Macomber's name is almost as closely linked to Christmas reading as that of Charles Dickens. . . . [ Mr. Miracle ] has enough sweetness, charm, and seasonal sentiment to make Macomber fans happy." --The Romance Dish

"Mr. Miracle" is a nice Christmas read. The characters Addie and Erich are fun and charming to read about. Needless to say, the plot revolves around their romantic relationship. Besides the human characters, Harry Mills also presents a fun angel character the audience can enjoy. While poor Harry has a lot to learn about humans, he gradually learns by his mistakes what the best decision should be. It must be noted that the novel ends somewhat abruptly. It almost felt like the full arc of narrative wasn't completely developed. Also, the title is somewhat deceiving. Nowhere in the book is there a Mr. Miracle (although Harry is suppose to be reflective of the title); this seemed a bit odd. "Mr. Miracle" is enjoyable but definitely not as nicely developed as "Call Me Mrs. Miracle" for example.

Reading a Debbie Macomber book is like drinking a hot cup of soothing herbal tea on a cold winter's afternoon. I enjoyed the characters, I enjoyed the gentle storyline and I found it a predicably heartwarming read.

Utterly disappointing!!! Occasionally, I enjoy reading a light uplifting book. Last year, I picked up Debbie Macomber's "Starry Night" and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was excited to read as soon "Mr. Miracle" when I saw it. This book is so bad! "Mr. Miracle" doesn't even read as if it was written by the same author. There is absolutely no character development, which is sad as the story line did have potential, even though it was nothing new. It was so lame that it felt more like a expanded draft of a beginning writer, rather than a work from a seasoned author. Reading "Mr. Miracle" wasted 3 hours of my precious reading time, in the most boring of matters.
