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.

"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 Its a Wonderful Life) with the more poignant soulfulness of A Christmas Carol to bring to life a memorable reading experience."Bookreporter
"Macombers 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

It is a light and easy read, yet the message is enchanting and inspirational.
Harry Mills is an Angel sent from Heaven in human form. He fills in as an English teacher at Southshore Community College in Tacoma, Washington. His trial mission is to help a young woman named Addie Folsom.
Addie has returned home after the death of her father. She left six years earlier, after dropping out of school and arguing with her father. Addie was determined to find success away from home, but has failed. Her mother welcomes her back home before Christmas, but informs Addie that she is going on a Christmas cruise with her friend and neighbor, Julie, who is also a widow. Julie is the mother of Erich Simmons.
Erich, the one person Addie dreads meeting again, is living right next door. Addie was infatuated with Erich when she was younger. Erich frequently made a mockery of Addie. He was downright cruel to her. She has never forgiven him for the deep hurt he caused.
Harry's mission is to help Addie to forgive Erich. Could that mission also include bringing love into Addie's life? When Erich is injured in a car accident, the cruise which Addie's mother has so looked forward to is in jeopardy. Julie will need to take care of Erich and won't be able to go on vacation. With many reservations, Addie offers to care for Erich so that the two widowed friends can take their cruise.
Harry faces many challenges on Earth with Addie and with personal temptations. He learns many Earthly lessons which will change him. Addie and Erich also experience life changing situations. Will Harry succeed in his mission? Will Addie and Erich find a fresh start, along with love? Circumstances seem to lead to a mission impossible on all fronts.
Mr. Miracle is an enjoyable and uplifting story and I highly recommend this book. It will warm the reader's heart during the holiday season.

Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A light, entertaining Christmas story.October 7, 2014Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Debbie Macomber once again develops quite an array of characters. Addie Folsom displays her maturity throughout the story as she deals with a difficult situation and a difficult neighbor. Harry Mills is a guardian angel on his first mission to earth. I really enjoyed Debbies ideas on what it is like for an angel to take on a human body.
There is only one thing that did disappoint me in this novel. Ive read a number of other Christmas stories by Debbie. Each of them had multiple riotous comedic scenes in them. I only found a few amusing scenes in this story and I missed being able to let loose with laughter.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Earth AngelOctober 7, 2014MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Harry is a very new to earth angel and is on trial, will he get sent home early? He has some help in Celeste, but the reputation left behind by Goodness, Shirley and Mercy, have made things a bit harder for him.
A very cute Christmas story, with Addie coming home, and wishing she had done it before when her Dad was still alive. She is going to go back to school and hoping to spend time with her mother. Her Mom has plans to take a cruise with Julie the next-door neighbor, and they are both looking forward to a different type of Holiday. Julie is also the mother of Erich, her nemeses from growing up, and when you read some of the things he did to her it is a wonder she ever speaks to him.
Now Henrys task is to bring them together, and not a very easy challenge seeing these two dont even like each other. There are some really funny happenings and big surprises when Erich breaks both of his wrists.
I felt that this would make a cute Hallmark movie, and I would watch it, the book is a fast read, and a refreshing Christmas read.
I received this book though Net Galley and the Publisher Ballantine Books and was not required to give a positive review.
