Mrs Miracle by Debbie Macomber....a Review

Today's Christmas review is for Mrs Miracle by Debbie Macomber.    It's an older book  and hopefully everyone has read this.    I hadn't and I wanted to read it before I ever see the Hallmark movie.....so, let's look at the Goodreads Synopsis:

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 togethe...he needs a miracle.

And then a miracle 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

From My Perspective:

I enjoyed reading Mrs Miracle.  It was the warm and cozy type of romance that I have come to appreciate from Debbie Macomber.    Her characters are usually flawed, but believable.   Both Seth and Reba had wounded spirits and needed a healing. It was inevitable that He could see what she needed to do in order to heal and she was able to determine what he needed in order to heal.   If they didn't change, each would remain half a person, and together make a whole...maybe.   I wasn't able to tell for sure, but I think Emily Merkle, the nanny, may have been an angel in disguise.   In any event, she had more than one mission to accomplish throughout the story.   And it was heartwarming to see how things worked out for everyone concerned.

A very good read to be sure  and I rated it 4 WINKS!!

So on a cold snowy day, you may want to sit by the fire and read a great Christmas romance where miracles are prominent and romance abounds!
