A Holiday Read to Get You In The Mood-Call Me Mrs. Miracle

Call Me Mrs. Miracle

Call Me Mrs. Miracle

Back of the Book

This Christmas, Emily Merkle (call her Mrs. Miracle!) is working in the toy department at Finley's, the last family-owned department store in New York City. And her boss is none other than…Jake Finley, the owner's son.

For Jake, holiday memories of brightly wrapped gifts, decorated trees and family were destroyed in a Christmas Eve tragedy years before. Now Christmas means just one thing to him—and to his father. Profit. Because they need a Christmas miracle to keep the business afloat.

Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Holly's widowed brother is in the army and won't be home for Christmas, but at least she can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley's, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to afford it…

Fortunately, it's Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others—and that includes doing a bit of matchmaking!

This Christmas will be different. For all of them.

My Thoughts:

Emily Merkle, known as Mrs. Miracle, is back in this years Christmas book by Debbie Macomber. I really love that Debbie does a seasonal book each year, I really look forward to them. Mrs. Miracle is one of my favorite characters. Macomber writes the most heartwarming, wholesome stories about people you could meet.

In Call Me Mrs. Miracle, Emily Merkle lands in the toy department at Finley’s. One might think that this would seem a logical place for her at Christmas time since helping is what she does. In this edition, she helps several individuals.

The story revolves around Holly Larsen and Jake Finley. Jake and his father don't celebrate Christmas. Funny, though, is that it is their biggest selling time of year. Two years ago his mother and sister were killed in a car accident on Christmas Eve, and it has never been the same since... Mrs. Miracle is there to make him see that Christmas means more than just making a profit. Holly Larsen has been taking her of her widowed brothers son while he is away in Afghanistan, serving his country. Her brother can’t come home for the holidays and her nephew wants a robot that she cannot afford.

This book is just what I needed to put me in that Christmas spirit. It was such a good, heartwarming read that I finished it in one day!
