"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Call Me Mrs. Miracle by Debbie Macomber

MIRA Publishing
Release Date: September 28, 2010

This story is a sequel to Mrs. Miracle, that was made into a Hallmark movie last year and you may see this book made into a Hallmark movie this year.  

This story is set up as Mrs. Miracle meets Miracle On 34th Street.  Emily Merkle (call me Mrs. Miracle) is found working in the toy department of a family owned prominent department store in New York City.  Her department manager is the owner's son Jake.

Through a series of perfectly timed events, Jake meets the woman of his dreams, changes his feelings about Christmas, also helping his dad to see the "lights".  A little boy gets the Christmas of his dreams and Mrs. Miracle has completed her job and travels on to her next assignment.  Who knows where she will turn up next?

This is a delightful Christmas story everyone will enjoy.  The thing I like about most Debbie Macomber books is that while the characters may appear in many stories, each story can stand on it's own.  With the exception of her Cedar Cove series, which I feel needs to be read in order, you can jump right into one of her books and feel right at home.  It was a tall order to come up with a sequel after Mrs. Miracle, but this is an amusing little feel good story that is sure to put a smile on your face.

I can't believe I am reviewing a Christmas story when it is 80 degrees here in Wisconsin, but Debbie writes so well you can almost hear the bells ringing and carolers singing despite the time of year.  This book would make a perfect Christmas gift or a book to read as the holidays draw near to really get you into the Christmas spirit!

I love reading Christmas stories/books begining at Thanksgiving time through new Year's. I enjoy Debbie MacComber's books & this is a great one for the Christmas season. It has such a gorgeous cover, too! I'd love to prop it on a table as a decoration!
It does seem strange to review a holiday book already but the days pass so quickly, it'll be that time of year before we know it!

Thank you for a great review :o)

I have this one on my list to review as well. I can't wait to read it. Debbie Macomber is one of my favorites. The Cedar Cove series is awesome.
