NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes a new story by Christina Skye

Beloved author Debbie Macomber celebrates the most wonderful time of the year in this heartwarming Christmas novel of romance, hope, and the comforts of home—coming soon as a Hallmark Channel original movie!

 
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 be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget.

Praise for Mr. Miracle
 
“Macomber’s Christmas novels are always something to cherish. Mr. Miracle is a sweet and innocent story that will lift your spirits during the holidays and throughout the year.

“This gentle, inspiring romance will be a sought-after read.”Library Journal

Macomber returns to her Christmas angel stories after a break with last year's Starry Night. Unlike his fellow angels and good friends, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, Harry Mills can mingle with humans without their knowing that he is an angel. Harry's first earthly mission from God requires him to assume the role of professor at a community college in the Pacific Northwest, where he'll help Addie Folsom realize she's smarter than she thinks and can succeed at school despite her dyslexia. Harry is also supposed to encourage Addie's relationship with Erich Simmons. Excited about his assignment and the chance to visit Earth, Harry is surprised at how difficult it is to experience human emotions and nudge Addie and Erich in the right direction. But what would Christmas be without a few miracles? VERDICT Given that a Hallmark TV movie version (and pilot for potential series) starring Rob Morrow will air shortly after the book is published and that best-selling author Macomber has legions of fans, this gentle, inspiring romance will be a sought-after read.

A guardian angel is sent to Earth as a professor charged with helping his students get their lives in order—especially Addie, who's returned to her hometown to make a fresh start and maybe even find love.Harry Mills has wanted an Earth assignment for as long as he can remember, and now that he has one—as a community college English professor over the holiday term—he's ready for anything. Or so he thinks. Book smart and slightly smug, he'll be taken down a peg or two when he realizes that human interactions and earthly temptations are far more complicated than they seem from a celestial perspective. Still, his angelic heart is in the right place, and despite a few missteps that bring some unwanted attention—from an attractive co-worker on the prowl, an overly fussy by-the-book college president and a venal security guard—Harry enjoys his work. His literature class studies Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the quintessential story of holiday miracles and second chances, which resonates with his students, who include Danny, a young ex-con; Andrew, a nervous veteran suffering from PTSD; and Addie, his true assignment, a young woman who suffers from dyslexia and self-doubt but wants to finally get a degree and pursue a career. Harry's gentle nudge toward forgiveness and compassion might apply to Addie's personal life as well. After all, Erich, the neighbor she grew up with and who crushed her heart with his teenage mean-spiritedness, needs her help after a debilitating accident. Maybe it's the season to overcome old grudges and open the way to new beginnings—and true love. Macomber spins another sweet, warmhearted holiday tale that will be as comforting to her fans as hot chocolate on Christmas morning.

Chapter One



This wasn’t the way it was supposed to happen. Six years out of high school, Addie Folsom had envisioned returning home loaded and driving a fancy car. Instead, she was limping back in a twenty-year-old Honda with close to three hundred thousand miles and her tail between her legs.

So much for the great promise of moving to Montana and walking into a get-rich-quick opportunity. She’d left Washington State with such high hopes . . . and ended up living in a leaky trailer and waiting tables in a run-down diner. It took all six of those years for Addie to admit she’d made a very big mistake. Pride, she’d learned, offered little comfort.

Oh, she’d returned home for visits at least a couple times a year. When asked pointed questions about her work in the silver mine, she’d made sure her answers were vague.

Then, last summer, her chiropractor father had died unexpectedly of a heart attack.

Addie had adored her dad as a child, but the moment she’d hit her teen years, their relationship had deteriorated. She hadn’t repaired things before he’d passed away so suddenly. In retrospect, she suspected she and her father were too much alike. Both were stubborn and headstrong, unwilling to admit when they were wrong or make the effort to build bridges.

They’d argued far too often, her mother stepping in, seeking to make peace between her husband and her daughter. How sorry Addie was for the strife between them, now that her father was gone.

For now, she was home for good. Addie parked in front of the single-story house where she’d spent the first eighteen years of her life. She loved that it had a front porch, which so many of the more modern homes didn’t. Normally, the Christmas lights would already be up. Her father had always seen to that the Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, however, the two arborvitae that bordered each side of the porch seemed stark and bare without the decorative lights.

Her mother must have been watching from the living-room window, because the minute Addie climbed out of the car, the front door flew open and Sharon Folsom rushed out with her arms open wide. “Addie, Addie, you’re home.”

Addie paused halfway up the walkway and hugged her mother close.

Sharon Folsom brought her hands up to Addie’s face and smoothed back her dark brown hair. Her mother’s chocolate-brown eyes, a reflection of her own, held her gaze with an intensity of longing.

Addie found she couldn’t speak. It felt so good to be home, to really be home.

Her mother hugged her even tighter this time. “You said you were coming back, and I’d hoped . . .” She left the rest unsaid.

“I’m not returning to Montana this time, Mom.”

“Oh Addie, really? I couldn’t be happier. So you decided you are definitely back to stay?” She wrapped her arm around Addie’s waist and led her up the porch steps. “It’s so wonderful to have you home, especially at this time of year . . . it’s the first one that’s so difficult, you know.”

The first Christmas without Dad.

“I talked to your uncle Roy,” her mother said.

“Yes?” Addie tried hard not to show how anxious she was to hear what her mother had found out.

“He’s pleased to know you’re interested in health care. Your dad would have been so happy; that was what he always wanted for you. Roy said once you get your high school diploma, he’ll do everything within his power to get you the schooling you need. He’s even willing to hire you part-time while you’re in school and to work around your class schedule.”

Addie hardly knew what to say. This was an opportunity she had never expected. More than she could ever hope would happen. Now it was up to her not to blow it.

“Aren’t you excited?”

Again, her throat tightened and she answered with a sharp nod. She knew that no matter what she hoped to accomplish, she’d need her high school diploma. One class credit was all she needed. Why she’d dropped out when she was so close to graduation was beyond her. How stupid and shortsighted she’d been. Her one missing credit was in literature, so she’d found a class she could take at the local community college.

B-o-r-i-n-g!

As a high school sophomore, Addie had been assigned to read Moby-Dick. Because of her dyslexia, she was a slow, thoughtful reader, often using her finger on the page to help her keep track of the words. Then to be handed that doorstop and work her way through it page by excruciating page had been pure torture. Following Moby-Dick, she’d been completely turned off to reading in general . . . although lately, after her television had stopped working, she’d gotten a couple books at the library and enjoyed them immensely. Finding pleasure in reading had given her hope that maybe . . . just maybe she could return to school.

“I already signed up for a literature class. It starts this week, which I understand is a bit unusual; apparently, it was delayed until a teacher could be replaced.” Addie had thought she’d need to wait until mid-February, when the second semester began. This class was perfectly timed for her.

“You enrolled already?” How pleased her mother sounded, and her face brightened with the news.

They were inside the house now, and after removing her coat, Addie tucked her fingertips in the back pockets of her jeans. Standing in the middle of the kitchen, she looked around and breathed in the welcome she found in the familiar setting. Her mother had placed a few festive things around the house to help celebrate the season. The Advent wreath rested in the center of the kitchen table. The first purple candle had been lit.

When she was growing up, it’d been a big deal to see who got to light the candle every night at dinner, Addie or her brother. Generally, Jerry was given the honor. Oh, how her brother had loved lording it over her. He lived in Oklahoma now, was married, and worked as a physical therapist for a center that trained Olympic athletes. He’d always been athletic himself, just like his best friend, Erich Simmons, who lived next door. The two had been inseparable; any mental image of her brother also conjured up his constant sidekick and the way she’d humiliated herself over Erich.

At one time Addie had thought Erich Simmons was the cutest boy in the universe. He was a star athlete, class valedictorian, and the homecoming king. Addie hadn’t thought of him in a long time and didn’t know why he’d popped into her head now. As a teen, she’d idolized Erich and hadn’t bothered to hide the way she felt. He, unfortunately, found her hero worship highly amusing. Oh, there’d been the usual antics when they were kids. Her brother and Erich had wanted nothing to do with her, despite all her efforts to follow them around. It wasn’t until she was fourteen and fifteen that she’d viewed Erich in a different light and sent him valentines and baked him cookies. It embarrassed her no end to remember what a fool she’d made of herself over him, especially since he treated her like a jerk.

“Addie?” Her mother broke into her thoughts. “You look a million miles away.”

“Sorry, Mom.”

“Bring in your suitcases. I’ve got your old room all ready for you.”

It felt wonderful to be home.

Addie unloaded her car, which, sadly, took only a few minutes. Everything she’d managed to accumulate in six years was contained in two suitcases and a couple boxes. When she finished unpacking, she headed directly for the garage.

Her mother found her there ten minutes later. “Addie, my goodness, what are you doing here?” she asked. “I’ve been looking all over the house for you. Are you hungry? Would you like me to fix you something to eat?”

“In a little while.”

“What are you doing?”

Addie stood in the middle of the garage, surrounded by several clear plastic boxes she’d brought down from the shelves. Her father had been a whiz at organization, a trait she’d inherited. “I’m looking for the outdoor Christmas lights.”

Mr. Miracle: A Christmas Novel 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 68 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Mr. Miracle is an enjoyable and uplifting story and I highly recommend this book. It will warm the reader's heart during the holiday season. Harry Mills is an Angel sent from Heaven in human form. He fills in as an English teacher at Southshore Community College in Tacoma, Washington. His trial mission is to help a young woman named Addie Folsom.  Harry faces many challenges on Earth with Addie and with personal temptations. He learns many Earthly lessons which will change him. Addie and Erich also experience life changing situations. Will Harry succeed in his mission? Will Addie and Erich find a fresh start, along with love? Circumstances seem to lead to a mission impossible on all fronts. Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber is a cute story, and when the movie comes out, I will enjoy watching it. However, it is just a cute story, nothing to spectacular. It's the kind of story you pick up, knowing what to expect, and you are not too disappointed. However, I've been reading some well written novels, lately, with great character development, dialogue and action, so this was just okay. If you like this sort of novel and want something low key, it is a nice little story.

Debbie Macomber is my favorite author. For me, the appeal of a Debbie book is that it's not about extraordinary women living glamorous lives. Her books are about real women, and people in general, who are relatable, who are living the same types of lives that her readers are living. She knows her audience and her audience loves that Debbie loves Christmas! We wait for her annual Christmas story with great anticipation! Mr. Miracle does not disappoint. It is a very sweet story about love and family and an angel's first time on Earth and his perception of humans and love. Debbie delivers another delightful Christmas story to her fans. . . she is our angel!

Found it a bit disappointed after her 3 angel tales from previous years. Liked the idea of a male angel, but was not overwhelmed with this one. A good read, but lacked teeth. pat

Mr. Miracle is another extraordinary book from Debbie Macomber. It's a beautiful, joyous, humorous Christmas novel. For me, I could read this book anytime; it doesn't have to be read just at Christmas time. If you want a clean, easy-to-read, lovely holiday story, I believe you would enjoy Mr. Miracle. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mr. Miracle by Debbie Macomber and unquestionably recommend this book. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.

Debbie Macomber has written another heartwarming story about angles coming to earth to help their human charges.  Guardian angel, Harry Mills, is on his first mission on earth and is finding humans to be a bit of a challenge, as he has assumed that everything is kind, peaceful, and easy as times are in heaven.  He's here, posing as an English teacher at the local college, so he can help Addie straighten her life out, and to hopefully find love for her also. I always look forward to finding new uplifting stories about love and hope every Christmas season, and am never disappointed with a new Macomber story.  This year, I especially enjoyed the humor that comes from angels visiting this earthly realm and the problems that they face with their human charges.  This was an especially sweet love story, which included romantic love and the touching kind of love that comes from people helping others who have special needs from problems that they have encountered in their lives.  I listened to this on Audible and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Are you sure this was written by Debbie Macomber?? This book was certainly a disappointment. I have read and always looked forward to reading her books, but this book struck me a being done to get a commitment out of the way. Nothing like the rest of her books, when I finished it I felt that it had been a waste of my time.

Mr. Miracle Debbie Macomber Book Summary: 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 be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget. Review: I found Mr. Miracle to start out slow and once I got going it became a quick easy read. I personally do not find this to be Debbie Macomber’s best. I liked the characters Okay but thought that both Addie and Erich were immature at times and I did not buy their affection. It is rare that I do not care fro a Debbie Macomber book but this is one. I kept waiting for the magic of Christmas to start and It did not for me. I am certain for some people this will be a great hit and enjoy the story overall. Addie and Erich were not unlikable. I guess the old fashioned idea of Christmas being about family is what I find enjoyable. However, in this story both mothers decide to go on a cruise together. I would like to thank Net Galley and Random House for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.

Christmas is the perfect setting for guardian angels. Harry Mills is a new one, on his first mission. His cover is that of a literature teacher at a local school where his goal is to "help" Addie. What he's supposed to help her with is a little vague at first, but once we get to know her a little and get to meet Erich - we know just what both of them need. I loved the character of Harry Mills. Since it's his first time on earth and his first time interacting with humans, he makes some silly mistakes and gets himself in just a bit of trouble now and then. Who knew that emotions could be so strong anyways? These little errors help balance out his perfect in other ways self - he is an angel after all - and made him a delightful character. Addie and Erich were fun to watch, and you could tell they were meant to be together and help each other from the get go. Their relationship grew very naturally at first and I was loving it. There was one case divine intervention that went a bit overboard for my taste - the kind of intervention that really gets noticed. But no one really seemed to get overly concerned about it and it just seemed a little off compared to the rest of the story. This was a fun little Christmas read though. It was a great start to the holiday season (a little earlier than I usually like though). It really helped that there were some clever mentions of Dickens' Christmas Carol - actual discussion about the book and its meaning. I love when books talk about books. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

This is not the usual touching and heartwarming holiday story we have come to expect from Ms Macomber. Instead it is an unfinished introduction to several characters and, without an actual ending, a blatant ploy to get us to buy the inevitable sequel -- probably a year from now. Way too short for all the story lines that get started but never wrapped up.

I have always loved all of Debbie Macomber's books, but this one bored me. I had to make myself finish it. Not worth the cost. Very disappointed . Plot was boring.

Debbie Macomber presents a pleasant Christmas novella with Mr. Miracle. The story centers on angels helping and guiding mortals. Macomber brings many favorite Christmas movies into the story, such as The Bishop's Wife and A Christmas Carol. The college literature class is studying the book A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The theme of change hails from Mr. Miracle, as well as with A Christmas Carol. This is a Christmas novella that does not rely on dimensional characters and a complex setting. The message of change and hope of change dominate the story. I am also reading a Sharon McCrumb book which is proving to be a difficult journey, but Mr. Miracle gave me an afternoon of enjoyment and smiles.

I have read all of Debbie's Christmas books, looking forward to there release each year and this was no exception.  However, this book just fell flat--too many characters for such a short story, and the flow of the book was somewhat disjointed.  I really wish I had waited to get this book from the library instead of purchasing...

Received the book in the mail this morning and just finished it. Another delightful Christmas story from Debbie Macomber. Sharing it with my Mom now.
celticmaggie More than 1 year ago
I like to read Debbie's Christmas stories. This is a change up from all the women angels to a middle age gentleman angel. Harry Mills is getting his first case. Celeste is his mentor as a college tattooed barista. Addie has come home for good. Erich is her childhood crush next door. They still detest each other. Spoiler here. It turns out he has 2 broken wrists and Addie gets to take care of him. She loves Christmas and he hates it. Harry is her literature teacher along with several new friends. Debbie always has the truest people in her books. Something tells me we will hear from Harry and Celeste in the not too distant future. I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

Normally I love all of her books and haven't given her less than 5 stars but, this book, didn't do a thing for me, I was highly disappointed especially since I love her Angel books and her other Mrs. Miracle books. I do recommend it for any of her fans to at least read it but, to me personally, it was a waste of my money especially since I know she writes amazing books.
MissBethBC More than 1 year ago
I like Macomber's Christmas stories and Mr Miracle was no exception. It was sweet and winsome. I do have to admit that with this book, I watched the movie before I read the book. The book is of course much better than the movie, although I will forever see Harry Mills as he was portrayed in the movie....argh. C'est la vie! Do you believe in angels who may walk among us? Well, that is the crux of the story. Harry Mill's first angelic assignment is to help Addie Folsom find love. As a novice angel, he makes plenty of assumptions that lead him into the path of human angst as he also struggles with human emotions he has never had to deal with. It is a light hearted read and very enjoyable. It reads quickly and leaves the heart warm. So if you are looking for a light quick read, meeting Mr Miracle could fit the bill this holiday season!

Addie Folsom is returning home later than she should. In retrospect she knows she should have come home when the job and life she had planned didn’t pan out, but she couldn’t swallow her pride to face her father’s, “I told you so.” Now he’s gone and Addie is ready to be the person she’s always wanted to be. Hopefully, without her childish mistakes haunting her. The bane of Addie’s existence throughout childhood was her neighbor and her brother’s best friend, Erich Simmons. She had the biggest crush on him and he enjoyed tormenting Addie. Hopefully, she won’t have to see Erich anytime soon. Alas, all of Addie’s plans go awry when Erich’s mom plans a trip for the holidays but is unable to go when Erich is hurt in an accident. Feeling a bit resistant, Adie offers to help Erich out until she returns. Hopefully, they can stand each other’s company for that long — but that could take a miracle! Hott Review: Debbie Macomber managed to glean from many of my favorite Christmas stories and wrap them in a completely different novel. It was wonderful! I’m never sure which of her characters I enjoy the most but this is a book to get lost in! Enjoy the wonder and magic of Christmas with Mr. Miracle!
