Jake Finley is at the point where he must prove to his own father that he can do it. Yet his father has no faith in him. As the son of Finley department store he knows the company will someday be his. This Christmas though he made a decision that went above his father and one he hopes will succeed this year. His father only cares about one thing and that is profit and sales not about the holiday season. He knows business can’t get worse but something about Emily Merkle is making him hope that this season will be the best one ever for him. Can he succeed? Can he prove to his father that he is the man right for the company even when a beautiful woman like Holly Larson distracts him?
This year is not one of Holly Larson’s best Christmas seasons. Her brother is at war and she has temporary custody of her nephew Gabe for the holiday. She knows he misses his dad especially since his mother passed away. He wants one thing and that is a toy robot, a very expensive one to be exact. Holly knows her work has been slacking but right now her nephew’s happiness is the most important thing. She expected a lot of things but never expected Jake Finley and Emily Merkle. Jake is definitely a distraction she doesn’t need but has made her aware how long it has been since she has had a man’s attention. Now Emily is a mystery and definitely a woman who seems to be in the way at odd times. Can Holly get the toy Gabe so wants? Will this be the season for miracles for Holly and Jake?
Call Me Mrs. Miracle is definitely a great read right now with the holiday season coming along. I loved that here is a man who so wants to prove to his father that he forgets about love in his life. Jake is a man who just wants to have a normal Christmas season but it hasn’t been like that since his mother and little sister’s death. Holidays are tough but I loved that Emily Merkle had a way of bringing magic. Holly is a woman who is just trying to be a good aunt but work sure knows how to change things. Again Debbie Macomber did a beautiful job in bringing love and miracles in such an enchanting tale that it is memorable. Great job.
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 Chrismas, 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.
