Absolutely loved this one. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to enjoy this book well in advance of the release date. It brought my heart such joy! I have to say, to date, this is most likely one of my most favorite reads by Ms. Debbie! Perhaps it was the theme, or the timing of the story. I needed to come home to a tale such as this, these past few weeks! Having a rough day and then reading something to fun, uplifting and heart warming, I mean seriously how could it not make my heart happy! And, we just had some friends who were waiting for such a long time, just like Laurel and Zach, for their miracle to arrive. And it reminded me of them, and their journey. Things do work out as they should, when they should. And we all have a Mr.s Miracle in our corner if we look closely and pay attention. This book was so well written, on point, heartwarming and just a wonderful read all around. I would recommend this for anyone in the midst of adoption, as a holiday read and I already have three people who I intend on purchasing this one for for Christmas.

    Mrs. Miracle is a Christmas tradition and I was thrilled to get to read this beautiful, miraculous story! ’It was the season, after all, and this year, for sure. The season of miracles.’ Disappointment after disappointment in conceiving or adopting a child has left Laurel with a lack of faith.

She’s resigned herself to being childless and thought her husband, Zach, had done the same. With the diminishing health of her Nana also weighing her down, they are thrilled when Mrs. Miracle arrives to help with Nana’s daily care. But when Laurel realizes that Zach hasn’t completely let go of the longing for a child, their marriage ends up on shaky ground.This was such a heartwarming story. I loved each and every one of these characters as they struggle with their own heart aches, losses, and longings. Laurel was living a life not quite complete and unable to totally let go of the heartache past disappointments had hurled at her. Zach only wanted his wife to find complete happiness in all things and went to extraordinary lengths to make it so. Nana, suffering from dementia, often lost herself in past memories as well as those of her husband who had died years before. And Mrs. Miracle was hope and joy in every word and action.With so much heartache, this is a rather angsty read, but at the heart of it all is hope and love. Despite this being a relatively fast read, this was such a richly developed story in both characterization and plotline. Of course, we know that there’s going to be a happy ever after, but the getting there was often painful. Even with all that angst, there is plenty of humor and smiles as well as a deep romance that survives the darkest of days. As always, Mrs. Miracle brings the pure undiluted joy of the holiday season to those around her as well as readers and I loved every moment of the beautiful Christmas story.Multi POVSafe (view spoiler)[no ow/om drama (hide spoiler)]Triggers (view spoiler)[infertility; adoption failure (hide spoiler)]

In a classic tale of Debbie Macomber’s signature seasonal magic, Laurel, Zach, and Helen experience a holiday of heavenly proportions. This is Laurel McCullough her husband, Zach's story. This is Laurel beloved grandmother, Helen's story.Laurel McCullough arrived home to find two police cruisers parked in the driveway with their lights flashing. If that wasn’t enough to get her heart racing, it was seeing her grandmother on the front porch, clearly distressed, wringing her hands and looking around anxiously.Laurel slammed her vehicle into park and leaped out of her car, nearly stumbling in her eagerness to find out what had happened.“Nana,” she cried, rushing toward her grandmother.Laurel’s brain raced with how best to deal with this latest situation. Last week, her grandmother had lost her way in the neighborhood, the very one she’d lived in for more than fifty years. Nana had gone out to collect the mail and noticed that the neighbor’s new puppy, Browser, had escaped his yard. She’d followed him to try to bring him back and hadn’t been able to find her way home. Eventually, the neighbor had found the puppy, along with Helen, and had brought Laurel’s visibly upset grandmother back home with her.Nana looked pale and frightened. “The doctor said that would happen, didn’t he? Me getting more and more confused? Wasn’t it only last week when I got lost? Laurel nodded. The dementia had become significantly worse over the last several months. It was at the point that she didn’t feel comfortable leaving her grandmother alone. But what choice did she have? Their financial resources were tight. All she could do was pray that she and Zach, her husband, could come up with a way to manage these new issues that Nana was having.I highly recommend reading.A Mrs. Miracle Christmas:by Debbie Macomber is a wonderful well written 5 star book.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book."more books by Debbie Macomber.Texas Home(Heart of Texas)Dakota Skies(Dakota)Window on the BayLaughter in the Rain / Engaged to the Single MomDakota Nights(Dakota)Kisses in the SnowA Mrs. Miracle Christmas(Mrs. Miracle)Twenty-One Wishes(Blossom Street)A Walk Along the BeachNew Beginnings1.

Laurel and Zach have come to live with her grandmother, Helen, who is afflicted with increasingly worse dementia. In A Mrs. Miracle Christmas, Debbie Macomber shows off her amazing talent by taking what could be just a sweet, sentimental and somewhat predictable story and turning it into a heartwarming novel that brought tears to this reader’s eyes. A Christmas story in the truest sense of the word and brimming with words of faith, A Mrs. Miracle Christmas is the story about a family in crisis. Laurel and Zach have come to live with her grandmother, Helen, who is afflicted with increasingly worse dementia. Laurel and Zach are also dealing with their inability to have a child, whether naturally, through IVF or adoption. Laurel’s faith is strained and the additional burden of dealing with her grandmother’s illness has her nearly to the breaking point. Laurel is a complex and good person. She was raised by her grandmother and late grandfather after her own mother was killed when she was ten. She loves her grandmother and is happy to do everything she can for her, but she is nearly at the end of her tether. Zach is a wonderful man who loves Helen, or Nana as Laurel calls her, very much. He is very supportive of both Laurel and Helen. The story occurs in the weeks approaching Christmas. When all seems bleakest, Mrs. Miracle appears, claiming to be from the Caring Angels, an agency that provides caregivers. Laurel and Zach take her story at face value. In reality, Mrs. Miracle (aka, Mrs. Merkel) truly is an angel, something that she makes no effort to hide from Helen. With Mrs. Miracle watching out for Helen during the day and, indeed, helping her bounce back in many ways just by keeping her active and engaged, Laurel and Zach are able to address issues in their relationship. To no one’s surprise, the book has a joyous ending.This is a wonderful book to read as the holidays approach. It holds no surprises but that is immaterial as it warms the heart and reminds readers what Christmas and the spirit of the holidays is all about. I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy feel good, relationship based books, If one is offended by overt mentions of church and faith, then keep that in mind before purchasing. I thought it was tasteful and in keeping with the holiday spirit. Four stars.I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated nor required to write a positive review. The opinions stated are solely my own.

A Mrs. Miracle Christmas has Debbie Macomber’s delightful writing which drew me right in. Her characters are developed, and the story moved along at a steady pace. Mrs. Miracle is sent by Gabriel to help Helen, Laurel and Zach. Helen has been praying for her granddaughter who has lost faith as well as hope after failed IVF treatments and an unsuccessful adoption. Zach still has hope, but he is not the praying type. Helen, Laurel’s grandmother, has dementia and her life has shrunk to the point where she sits in a chair trying to knit and watching television. With Mrs. Miracle taking care of Helen, her life expands. Helen finds new activities and new friends with her favorite being the kindly Mrs. Miracle. I thought Laurel and Zach’s struggles were realistic. I could feel their turmoil and sadness. There are some bright moments for the couple along with angelic guidance. There were humorous scenes that had me laughing out loud. I especially enjoyed Mrs. Miracle mentioning her friends, Shirley, Goodness and Mercy. Mrs. Miracle enlists their assistance for a job or two. I like the inclusion of this segment of the Twenty-Third Psalm, “Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life.” We see how important it is to never lose hope or faith. God does listen to our prayers and He answers them in His own way and when He feels it is time. We need to remember that patience is a virtue (like Mrs. Miracle, I struggle with this one). It also tells us that we should be grateful for what we do have instead of what we do not have. I am guilty of this as well. A Mrs. Miracle Christmas is a heartwarming Christmas tale that will lift your spirits and touch your heart. I was happy for the epilogue that beautifully wrapped up this touching tale. A Mrs. Miracle Christmas is an uplifting story with heavenly help, grandmotherly guidance, holiday happenings, a spirited Christmas Eve service and the mysterious Mrs. Miracle.

From the first word, I was swept up in Laurel & Zach’s struggle to move forward without the family they so desperately wanted. Zach’s faith and hope uplifted the heart even as Laurel’s despair and pain created tears. I was particularly drawn to Helen, Laurel’s Nana. My own grandmother suffered from dementia in the last years of her life & Helen’s life & experiences mirrored those we experienced with my grandmother. This was a truly wonderful story reminding us of the miracles of the Christmas season & to never lose faith.

The late Doris Roberts will always be Mrs. Miracle in my mind.Laurel and her husband Zach live with Laurel’s grandmother Helene/Nana both to save money and to take care of her. When it’s obvious that Helene’s memory is slipping, they request assistance from Caring Angels, an in-home care service. When Mrs. Miracle arrives at their door a few hours later, their lives will never be the same, as is usual with anytime Emily Merkle/Miracle appears. Mrs. Miracles knows things about the family and Nana that she wouldn’t normally know, about the past and the future. While the care of Nana is the central theme, the care of Laurel and Zach in their struggle with being childless is also a major concern. Debbie Macomber writes wonderful stories addressing serious issues with love and compassion. This book is another in the long list of endearing tales. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.

    I am a big fan of all of Debbie Macomber's books, but especially her Christmas books.This is another excellent Christmas book from the author, featuring the beloved Mrs. Miracle. We also meet up with her angelic friends from previous books, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy.Mrs. Miracle becomes a caretaker to Helen, who has dementia. As she does her “angelic” work with Helen, we find moments of laughter and joy as the two ladies grow close. Mrs. Miracle also has come to help with answering the prayer I am a big fan of all of Debbie Macomber's books, but especially her Christmas books.This is another excellent Christmas book from the author, featuring the beloved Mrs. Miracle.

Lauren is Helen’s granddaughter. They have had many disappointments with not being able to start a family and have given up hope that there will ever be a child in their lives. A perfect Christmas read that you won’t want to put down once you start reading it.I highly recommend this book to start your holiday reading.I received a copy of this book from Random House Publishing – Ballentine and NetGalley, and this is my honest review.

    Oh how I love a feel good Christmas story! They make you feel warm and cozy, like being wrapped in a blanket of holiday spirit. And no one does a feel good Christmas story better than Debbie Macomber! A Mrs. Miracle Christmas is a prime example of that.Now, while I have read many Debbie Macomber books and was familiar with the character of Mrs. Miracle (primarily through the Hallmark movies), I must admit that this was the first of the books that I had read.

Oh what a delight it was! I find myself wanting to read them all now. I am certain those who have read the previous books will love another appearance by this wonderful character. Others like myself will love this introduction, and won't feel as though they are missing anything. This story does deal with infertility and adoption---and the heartaches that can go along with that. Though it is a very heartwarming story that had me walking away with a sense of hope, I could certainly see how this could be a tough read for those who are currently going through these struggles and would certainly suggest you keep that in mind before reading. That said it was a beautiful story that had me laughing and crying throughout...just as a good Christmas story should. It was also a very quick read, I was able to finish it in less than a day!If you're looking for a quick read that will warm your heart this holiday season (or before!), A Mrs. Miracle Christmas is a GREAT choice! **I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.
