Publisher's Summary

With Christmas approaching and wild twin boys to raise alone, Seth Webster needs a miracle. His home is in chaos, the latest in a long line of exasperated housekeepers quitting in disgust, and he needs help keeping his family together. And then it arrives on his doorstep. Her name is Mrs. Merkle, but the kids call her "Mrs. Miracle" - and from the moment the warm, knowing, and very patient nanny appears, everything is different.

Her sassy spirit is infectious, and it gives Seth the courage to approach Reba, a beautiful travel agent who's been hurt and betrayed and is afraid to ever love again. Through the magic of faith - and with a little help from a children's Christmas pageant and a lot of encouragement from Mrs. Miracle - Seth and Reba might just be able to find a Christmas miracle of their very own: true love.

We All Still Need Some Miracles

Perhaps this is not the genre for some folks . . . but it is for me . . . especially during the holidays. We all need to have our faith renewed, refreshed and to listen to an audio book that makes us feel BETTER, and not weighed down with the everyday woes of life. I love this story of a single dad with two wild twins. He lost his wife in a car wreck four years earlier, and he, whether wrong or right had let his in-laws take over raising them just after he lost his wife. The audio book is full of real life issues and pain that arises following the loss of someone so close to us. The way each of us reacts to such a loss is very different, sometimes very puzzling to those around us. If you do not know God, or want to know God, you will be put off by Debbie Macomber's books, because they will put you face to face with issues of faith and forgiveness. I appreciate that, admire that and would recommend this book and her others to anyone who wants to learn to love more, forgive more, and face every tomorrow a happier person.

- Debbie "Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper."

Disappointing

I think I was expecting the story to be like the movie, which I liked a lot and seemed to me to have more warmth and humor. This book was disappointing. It seems to me that McComber had a lot of stories in her head and just tied them together with Emily Merkel to come up with a book. The story was hard to follow, because it bounced around between all the characters. I really didn't get the purpose for Aunt Harriet or for Sharon and Jerry's divorce. Very little about Mrs. Merkel. Also, it didn't help that the narrator read the selection like an automated message. She pronounced each and every word in a super-punctlious manner with no emotion or connection to the story. I'm not old-fashioned but I didn't like the reference to heavy petting in one of the chapters; I thought it was inappropriate given that each chapter has a quote referencing faith. It seemed like McComber just threw that in.
