Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store.
After trying to make it on her own, Addie has returned home to Tacoma for the holidays, but this time she plans to stay for good, enrolling in the local community college to earn her degree. What she doesn’t plan to do is run into Erich Simmons.
Addie and her next-door neighbor, Erich, are like night and day. Growing up, he was popular and outgoing while she was rebellious and headstrong, and he never missed an opportunity to tease her. Now she intends to avoid him entirely, yet when they’re suddenly forced to spend Christmas together, Addie braces for trouble.
Perhaps it’s the spirit of the season or the magic of mistletoe, but Addie and Erich soon find they have more in common than they thought—and that two people who seem so wrong for each other may actually be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget.
My Comments: This is a novella and rather short, so the characters aren’t extremely developed, nor is the story. Also, angels are involved which makes it more unrealistic, but sweet. Debbie has a Christmas series with angels, but I could never really get into those. In this book the angels had a role to help the humans – kind of guardian angels. I like the story, and I was engaged. It was a quick read. Hallmark will have a movie based on this book coming out for the holidays. The ending seemed kind of abrupt to me. I felt like I was left hanging. This book could be read at any time of the year even though the setting was Christmas time. After having read the book, I am now looking forward to seeing Hallmark’s movie.
Thank you NetGalley for a free review e-copy in exchange for my honest opinion, which I have given.
