Overview

Christmas is a time for angel.

Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are back! These three irresistible angels love their assignments on Earth. They especially love helping people who send prayer requests to Heaven (even though the Archangel Gabriel, their boss, knows they're going to break his rules)!

This Christmas, Mercy is assigned to bring peace of mind to an elderly man— who discovers an unexpected answer to his prayer.

Goodness is sent to oversee the love life of a young woman afraid to risk commitment a second time. And Shirley has the task of granting a little boy's fondest Christmas wish.

Shirley, Goodness and Mercy go wherever they're needed. These three charming angels often find themselves in trouble, but somehow things always work out for the best—especially at Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Archangel Gabriel and his three mischievous Prayer Ambassadors-Shirley, Goodness and Mercy-lend their celestial aid to three needy Christmas cases. Harry Alderwood, 86, prays that his increasingly forgetful wife, Rosalie, will agree to move into assisted living before he dies. Meanwhile, nine-year-old Carter Jackson begs God for a dog, even though his mother and father tell him that they can't afford to keep a pet, while Beth Fischer's mother prays that her divorced paralegal daughter, nightly engrossed in a World of Warcraft online game, will start a new life. The busybody angels work behind the scenes and provide a few delightful surprise twists as lives transform. (Oct.)

After a long hiatus, Macomber's beloved angels Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are back for Christmas and in fine form as they lend a hand in fulfilling some difficult Christmas prayers-despite a very wary Archangel Gabriel who well knows that where these three go, trouble always follows. Answering the prayers of a dying man who wants to ensure that his wife will be cared for when he's gone, a mother who wants her daughter to find love again, and a little boy who wants a dog is now the responsibility of these Angelic Prayer Ambassadors, who will do everything in their power-within the rules or not. Poignant, loving, and heartwarming, this volume is one to cherish, and fans are sure to be waiting. The ever-popular and prolific Macomber (74 Seaside Avenue) lives in Port Orchard, WA.

This was the first book I read on my new Nook. The characters seemed so real and who couldn't associate with a young boys desire to have a dog to love, a young couple getting a 2nd chance at love, but what touched my the most was the love that had grown over the years between a husband and wife and his desire to provide security for her before he moved on...I ended up reading it in less than a day because I couldn't put it down.

This was my first Debbie Macomber book, but I will definetely be reading much more of her books. Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are the main characters of this book and provide such insight into how our lives move through life day in and day out. This book makes you realize that you never know how one little gesture, effort or comment can change a person's day. Not only one person, but many people may be affected by just one thing we do. Read lots of Debbie Macomber, she has a true heart and a wonderful gift for writing!

After reading the first 'Angel' book with Goodness, Shirley and Mercy several years ago, I was hooked and couldn't wait to get this one. I am halfway through it and it is wonderful! I'm trying to make it last through the first week of December otherwise I would have been done by now. I highly recommend this book to boost your holiday spirits!

Just what I needed after a stress filled week.....a light hearted story that I was able to finish in one evening. Some surprising twists, along with some tears 'happy and sad' filled my night. She touched all of my emotions with this book. Having not read any of the angel series before this, I look forward to picking them up and treating myself again. This is a great book for anyone. Thanks for the thought provoking stories, Debbie!
