Christmas with an Angel is a very short story in the Harmony Harbor series by Debbie Mason. It features assistant district attorney Michael Gallagher who we meet in Mistletoe Cottage as the intended groom for the impending wedding at Greystone manor on Christmas. This story begins a few minutes after Michael's fiancee throws her engagement ring at him calling off the wedding solely because he wants to go into law enforcement rather than politics.
Rather than a full short story in the traditional sense, Christmas with an Angel is more of a "teaser" of one or two scenes setting up a future story in the Harmony Harbor series. To fully appreciate it and understand it, you really need to read or listen to Mistletoe Cottage first (I listened to it twice before writing this review). I for one can't wait to see how this story develops between Michael and ex-con Shay Angel!
I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by Becket Royce who did a fantastic job utilizing distinct voices for each character. In fact, her rendition of Michael is simply swoon-worthy. Great job!

I enjoyed listening to this title as it continues Michael's story from Mistletoe Cottage.
“She changed the locks on my condo... packed all my stuff up and threatened to throw it out… And she's holding my dog hostage.”
After reading Mistletoe Cottage by Debbie Mason, I was intrigued by Assistant District Attorney Michael Gallagher who was definitely a jerk in Mistletoe Cottage. When I saw that this book – which was available in audio format for under a dollar – continued his story, it was a given that I would pick up Christmas with an Angel. I don’t really understand how the title relates to this story as it’s not that Christmassy and Shay is questionable as an angel, but I enjoyed listening to this installment told solely from Michael’s POV as it delves into his and Shay’s past. I would not jump into this tale without first reading Mistletoe Cottage as I don’t feel that Christmas with an Angel would work well as a standalone.
I listened to the audio edition of Christmas with an Angel which was well voiced by Becket Royce, a new narrator for me. She had a clear, easy-to-understand voice and used consistent, distinct voices for each character. Based upon her polished performance of this audio, I would not hesitate to pick up another audio performed by Becket Royce.
Michael was a jerk in Mistletoe Cottage – so I was glad to see him get a bit of comeuppance and a bit of redemption when his impending wedding which was to be held at Greystone Manor is called off by his entitled fiancé because Michael decided to go into law enforcement rather than politics, significantly lowering his fiance’s anticipated lifestyle. So, now Michael’s love life is in shambles, but there are future possibilities with wild, leather-wearing Shay. I’m not going into this story anymore as it is quite short, but, if you have previously enjoyed Mistletoe Cottage, you will not want to miss Christmas with an Angel!
