WHY DID I LISTEN TO MR. MIRACLE BY DEBBIE MACOMBER?
Mr. Miracle is a Debbie Macomber Christmas story which I have read previously. I have also seen the Hallmark movie based on this story. Yet for some reason, I never actually reviewed the ARC as I was supposed to when it originally came out. So for my 2021 Christmas in July celebration, I wanted to finally complete this task.
WHAT’S THE STORY HERE?
Mr. Miracle is part of the Angelic Intervention series by Debbie Macomber. It follows guardian angel Harry Mills as he attempts to complete his first assignment: help Addie Folsom get her life back on track. He helps her by mentoring her education, her family life, and social life but, it is not without a few mishaps along the way. It is a heartwarming story filled with second chances romance, and Christmas magic.
WHAT DID I THINK OF MR. MIRACLE?
Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors to read during the holiday season because her stories never fail to put me in a good mood. She just has a way to make her stories simple but filled with the best holiday magic. In this case, she uses Harry Mills to educate and bring Addie into her new life which includes a potential romance with someone who she has a strained history with. Harry also experiences his own growth learning how to be human as an angel. I liked the dynamic of watching these characters grow together. It was an interesting cast of characters that is for sure. I almost wish I could have gotten to know the side characters a little bit more though. Some of Mr. Miracle seemed really wrapped up in the idea of Christmas magic but, I think things could have been expanded on a bit more, especially in terms of Addie and Erich’s relationship.
HOW’S THE NARRATION?
Mr. Miracle is narrated by Elyse Mirto and is 4 hours and 55 minutes unabridged. I listened to it at 1.75x because I felt like it helped with the flow better. I enjoyed the narration because it felt smooth and was easy to listen to. I could feel the heart of the story though out and that made it enjoyable.
