Mrs. Miracle: A Novel (Angels Book 4) Kindle Edition
Also a motion picture from the Hallmark Channel, this is a fan favorite from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.
They call her Mrs. Miracle…
Seth Webster's heart never healed after he lost his adored wife. Now, with Christmas approaching, wild twin boys to raise alone, a home in chaos, and the latest in a long line of exasperated housekeepers quitting in disgust, Seth needs more than help to keep his family together...he needs a miracle.
And then one arrives on his doorstep. Her name is Mrs. Merkle, but the kids call her "Mrs. Miracle"—and from the moment the warm, knowing, and very patient nanny appears, everything is different. Her sassy spirit is infectious, and it gives Seth the courage to approach Reba, a beautiful travel agent who's been hurt and betrayed, and is afraid to ever love again. Through the magic of faith—and with a little help from a children's Christmas pageant and a lot of encouragement from Mrs. Miracle—Seth and Reba might just be able to find a Christmas miracle of their very own: true love.

Laurel and Zach have moved in with Laurel's beloved Grandmother, Helen, as they try a round of fertility treatment. Left devastated when this and a subsequent adoption fails and growing increasingly concerned about Helen's failing memory, the family decide to bring in a carer companion for Helen to provide additional support to the struggling family. Enter Mrs Miracle as Helen's companion, who when she arrives, lets slip to Helen that she is in actual fact an angel sent to answer Helen's prayers for Laurel. The 2 ladies quickly put their heads together. Will Laurel and Zach get the baby they have been yearning for? and will Helen learn to love her life again? With Mrs Miracle's help, you had better believe it!
Mrs Miracle features in a number of Debbie Macomber's Christmas books, but these can all be read without knowledge of the others. I love these books because they are always marvellous Christmas stories with a hopeful message. The characters are good people dealing with difficult situations. Helen is delightful and so very kind and I enjoyed seeing Helen getting her mojo back! Shirley, Mercy and Goodness, Mrs Miracle's friends and fellow angels, also make a reappearance to help the process along the way and as usual cause a little havoc along the way. The message is simple, Have Faith! And whatever your religious choices or not, it is a message that speaks to a lot of people.
So if you are feeling a little frazzled by all the Christmas preparations or life in general and if you are able to 'step out' for a moment, take some time, find a quiet spot (and maybe a hot chocolate or mince pie) and curl up with this novel. It is truly a balm for the soul.
Like the other reviewer said this is a little Mary Poppins inspired, but also has a sweet love story to accompany it. This was one of my Christmassy books for this year, and I'm really glad I picked it up. I loved Seth and Reba, and it was great to see each of them battling with their pasts to create a better future for themselves. Judd and Jason (the two twins) are hilarious at times, and it's fab seeing what trouble the two of them can stir up.
The story doesn't just focus exclusively on Seth and Reba though - there are also plotlines about Seth's in-laws Sharon and Jerry, and local busybody Harriet Foster (who gets exactly what she deserves). The book has also been turned into a movie which is unfortunately only available as a region 1 dvd at the moment ( Mrs Miracle [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC ]). However, it is scheduled to be shown on Channel 5 this Christmas (2010) so hopefully I'll manage to catch it.
All in all this was a great seasonal read, and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel Call Me Mrs. Miracle which is also available in this UK paperback - Falling for Christmas (MIRA) .
