Review: Call me Mrs. Miracle By Debbie Macomber

This Christmas, Emily Merkle (call her Mrs. Miracle!) is working in the toy department at Finley's, the last family-owned department store in New York City. And her boss is non other than Jake Finley, the owner's son.

For Jake, holiday memories of brightly wrapped gifts, decorated trees and family were destroyed in a Christmas Eve tragedy years before. Now Christmas just means one thing to him--and to his father. Profit. Because they need a Christmas miracle to keep the business afloat.
Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Holly's widowed brother is in the army and won't be home for Christmas, but at least she can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley's, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to afford it...
Fortunately, it's Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others--and that includes doing a bit a matchmaking!
This Christmas will be different. For all of them.

This is my second Debbie Macomber book and I must say I enjoy her work. Her books are so catching and addicting. I actually stayed up till 2 am to finish reading this book which I was only half way. I enjoy a book where the author pulls you in and has you rooting for the main character. And that's what I caught myself doing in this lovely romance novel.

Holly was going through the roughest time of her life. She took in her nephew Gabe, into her home becoming his guardian while his father, her brother, was drafted back to Afghanistan. Her new position in life was now becoming harder financially. And now Christmas was right around the corner and she prided herself in getting Gabe what he wanted most for Christmas, a toy robot from Finley's Toy Store. She felt he deserved it.
There is where she meets Jake.

What would you call bumping into the same gorgeous guy in more than one place in the same day? Is it fate or coincidence? That's what kept happening to Holly with Jake Finley. They bumped into one another at Starbucks and then at the toy store in which Gabe keeps insisting on going time and time again. Jake and Holly's friendship kept progressing, but little did they know this friendship of theirs was a work of "miracle" and they were meant to be there for one another through difficult times and more.

This is a really good book! I love when I grab a book and can't put it down! Of course I lose hours of sleep, but who needs sleep? Sleep is over-rated! 5 stars out of 5 and a definite Good Choice for Reading!
