Addie Folsom isn't exactly thrilled to be moving back home after things fell apart in Montana, but here she is. She wants to get her life back on track and follow her late father's footsteps and become a chiropractor, but she discovers that she needs one more credit to get her high school diploma. Even with her class to keep her busy, Addie finds herself left to care for her neighbor and childhood crush, Erich, after he is injured in a car accident. Even though Addie is reluctant to do so, she helps Erich and is soon feeling those same old feelings. Will she be able to help this "Scrooge" without getting her heartbroken again?
If you are familiar with Debbie Macomber and her other "Miracle" Christmas novels, you know that there are a couple of Angels working behind the scenes to help Addie. In Mr. Miracle it is Harry, a new angel, and Celeste that are working to make things work out for Addie and others at the school. Mr.Miracle was a quick, cute Christmas read. I am sure that many of you know that Mr. Miracle was made into a Hallmark Channel movie that aired over the weekend. I have the movie DVR'd but I will be excited to watch it and see how it translates to the screen. Addie was one of those reluctant characters that isn't thrilled with the way her life is going, but gets better as the book progresses. Same goes for Erich. He is the quintessential "Scrooge" - and the reasons are revealed as the story progresses. Predictable, but cute.
Bottom line, I love a good Christmas love story. The cheesier the better. Mr. Miracle is about as cheesy as they come - and I am okay with that.
