Where Angels Go
by Debbie Macomber
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 the 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 woman afraid to risk commitment a second time. And Shirley has the task of granting a little boy's fondest Christmas wish. These three charming angels often find themselves in trouble, but somehow things always work out for the best - especially at Christmas. What would the holidays be without a new Christmas story from Debbie Macomber?

50 Harbor Street
by Debbie Macomber
Macomber returns to Cedar Cove, Washington, for the fifth installment in her bestselling series, following 44 Cranberry Point and 311 Pelican Court. This time, a series of mysterious, unsettling anonymous postcards is being delivered to 50 Harbor Street -- home of Corrie and her P. I. husband, Roy.



Perseverance Paid Off

"For nearly five years I wrote and submitted my manuscripts. My work was rejected so fast it practically hit me in the back of the head on my way home from the post office," Macomber reveals in our interview. "At one point in my lonely sojourn, an editor read and reviewed my manuscript, and with the utmost sincerity told me there was no use in revising it and the best thing I could do was throw it away. Thankfully, I didn’t take her advice, because that same manuscript sold to a rival publishing house and launched my writing career."
