In an effort to restore people’s faith in miracles and angels, Call Me Mrs. Miracle seems more suited for teens than adults. The story by itself is cute and easy to follow. But the simplistic language and underdeveloped characters seem too elementary for adult readers.

Jake Finley is the heir to Finley’s department store and Christmas time is the busiest time of the year. Due to a tragic accident more than 20 years ago on Christmas Eve, he and his father refuse to celebrate the holidays. Holly Larson is adjusting to having her 8-year-old nephew live with her while his father is stationed in Afghanistan. Enter “Mrs. Miracle,” a seasonal worker at the department store with a knack for bringing people together. (MIRA, Oct., 256 pp., $16.95)

Call Me Mrs. Miracle

Submitted by Robin in PA on November 20, 2011 - 11:35pm.

Holly Larson needs a miracle. She has custody of her nephew while her brother is deployed overseas. The only thing Gabe wants for Christmas is the toy robot at Finley's Department Store. Now she has to figure out how she can afford it, especially since she just learned that there will be no Christmas bonus this year. Jake Finley, Manager of the Toy Department, needs a miracle too. He needs to sell all of the toy robots to keep the business afloat. Luckily the store has hired Emilie Merkle. She calls herself Mrs. Miracle and is certainly going to try to help both Holly and Jake make this Christmas special.

This was a very nice Christmas story that kept me interested. My rating: 4 Stars.
