This is the first book I have read by Debbie Macomber and it is a lovely festive read, perfect for when Christmas is just around the corner. Laurel is so worried about her beloved grandmother who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. She and her husband Zach are out at work all day and she hates leaving her alone. When Mrs Miracle appears at the door, Laurel’s prayers are answered, apparently the agency sent her even though they told Laurel they had no one available. Mrs Miracle is wonderful and soon Laurel’s grandmother is the happiest she’s been for a while. Laurel is a little concerned though that her grandmother is convinced that Mrs Miracle is actually an angel sent from God, she puts it down to her illness and is just pleased to see how well she is doing. Laurel has other things to worry about too, her and Zach have been hoping for a baby for so long and Laurel feels like she has given up on this dream whereas her husband is determined to keep going. Laurel soon feels that Zach is keeping something from her and she needs to find out exactly what the secret is. 
A Mrs Miracle Christmas has a fairly religious undertone, I for one am not religious but I still enjoyed the book and the message that it delivers. Debbie Macomber manages to fill the story with so many festive details, making it a very comforting read as it so easy to identify with.
Laurel is a lovely character and just wants the best for everyone around her. She has had quite a tough start to life and her grandmother provided her with the love and stability that she so desperately needed. She wants to return that care when her grandmother needs it most so Mrs Miracle comes along just at the right time.
I’ve really enjoyed this book and it has made me look forward to carrying out the Christmas traditions that I have within my own family. It’s a lovely read that I would recommend. 

Many thanks to Rachel at Arrow for inviting me to be part of the blog tour, the book is out now!
