Review: Mr. Miracle
Title: Mr. Miracle (Angelic Intervention #10)
Author: Debbie Macomber
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Year published: 2014
How I got this book: I listened to it as an audiobook through the app Storytel
My rating: 3 stars
Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track - and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store.
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 just be right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they'l never forget.
This book was just okay. I picked it up because it's Christmas, and it was nice enough, but nothing memorable. I have read a few books by Macomber this season, and this was, unfortunately, my least favourite of them. It is, however, quite short, so you fly through it.
The plot was enjoyable, and the characters as well, but it wasn't anything special. I didn't connect with any of the characters, but the setting was easy get into. I listened to it as an audiobook, so you might experience the story in a different way if you read a physical book, but I don't know how much that would have changed my opinion of this.
I will not be recommend this to people, but I won't tell people not to read it either. If it sounds nice, and you just want a short, and enjoyable, book this is something for you. It's a good story to read around Christmas, and might bring a little bit of holiday cheer.
