Book Description

Oct. 23 2012 Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In this joyous and whimsical holiday novel, Debbie Macomber rings in the season with the return of Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, delivering laughs, love, and a charming dose of angelic intervention.
 
Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy know that an angel’s work is never done, especially during a time as wondrous as New Year’s Eve. With an apprentice angel, Will, under their wings, they descend upon Times Square in New York City eager to join in the festivities. And when Will spies two lonely strangers in the crowd, he decides midnight is the perfect time to lend a heavenly helping hand.      
 
Lucie Farrara and Aren Fairchild meet after bumping into each other—seemingly by accident—in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. They immediately hit it off and find they have a lot in common: Lucie is a burgeoning chef and Aren is a respected food critic. But just as quickly as they’re brought together, another twist of fate tears them apart, leaving Lucie and Aren with no way to reconnect.
 
A year later, Lucie is the chef of an acclaimed new restaurant and Aren is a successful columnist for a major New York newspaper. For all the time that’s passed, the two have not forgotten their one serendipitous evening—and neither have Shirley, Goodness, Mercy, and Will. To reunite the young couple, the angels cook up a brilliant plan: mix true love, a second chance, and a generous sprinkle of mischief to create an unforgettable Christmas miracle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short and Breezy Macomber Christmas Book Oct. 5 2012
By Ms Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I read this short Christmas story in about two hours and think it will be a favorite of fans of Debbie Macomber. Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are old friends of the faithful Macomber readers, being angels who slip out of heaven from time to time to help humans. In this book, the three are joined by a male angel named Will, who is even more inept than the three female angels. Ignoring the orders to not interfer in the lives of humans, Will brings two lonely people together in Times Square on New Year's Eve. Lucie and Aren agree to meet a week later on the top of .....guess where?....the Empire State Building if they are still interested in each other. Naturally, as in the movie "An Affair to Remember," Lucie cannot make it due to circumstances outside her control. The rest of the book is how the four angels attempt to get Lucie and Aren back together in a "continuing to meet cute" bumbling fashion.

As I indicated in my title, the book is short and breezy, nothing profound here that will stay with you for longer than the time to read it, which makes it good romance reading for the holidays when most people are very busy. In some regards it seemed a little like a book for children, although I am not sure if most children would sit still for the "mushy parts". Typical Debbie Macomber angel Christmas story, which is not necessarily a bad thing at all, just more of an acquired taste I'm thinking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelic `quad' returns to Christmas romantic mischief Aug. 22 2012
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Macomber fans will enjoy. Her not-so-perfect angels return for Christmas reading. Shirley, Goodness & Mercy have sneaked apprentice Will (yes all angels from Psalms 23) a New Year's preview of N.Y.C. Earth. Despite a do not touch/talk rule, Will assists 2 strangers to a New Year kiss. More sparkles than the descending Time Square ball.

Lucie is a chef soon opening her own upscale "Heavenly Delights", an off-shoot of Mrs. Miracle intervention. She lip smacks Aren, a new Gazette food critic. Ah. . .romantic conflict and a promise of an angel quartet to right all wrong. But Gabriel's less than punctual backlog of Earthly prayer requests puts the Heavenly assistance off until the next Christmas season. In the meantime, our love-at-first-kiss couple has lost all contact following the first night out.

Well it's funny and heart-warming throughout, to the conclusion. Solid Debbie Macomber Christmas story, what more needs said? It's a perfect length for holiday reading. Just right for the ladies, and for men who like a bit of Christmas romance in their eggnog. And I can smell another TV Hallmark adaptation roasting like chestnuts by an open fire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Christmas tale of angelic interventions Aug. 21 2012
By iiiiReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
"Angels at the Table: A Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy Christmas Story" by Debbie Macomber is a very sweet and short story of the slightly bumbling interventions of four angels in the lives of humans. While their pokes and prods derail the couple from their intended path, by the end of the book, all is back in the order it was meant to be.

I found the story to be a fun short read (one afternoon.) The interventions of these angels (at least three of them) appear to have been told in prior stories (which I have not read) but while there are passing references to the prior tales, the story in this book stands alone.

It was enjoyable to read a sweet and clean story for the season. I look forward to reading more by Ms. Macomber in the future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love Debbie Macomber...but didn't like this book Nov. 27 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Debbie Macomber is my favorite author. I can always count on a light read that reflect her strong values. Sorry...but, this was just lame and dragging...some mentioned it is more like a chidren's book and I agree....except that a stranger kisses her and she leaves alone with him that night! That doesn't sound like her writing. I'll just re-read one of her previous books to get my Debbie Macomber fix!

4.0 out of 5 stars Once Again, Such a Comforting Read Oct. 5 2012
By Busy Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I love Debbie Macomber's books. They're my easy reading, perfect for those moments when life is just overwhelming with its busyness and chaos. I love the three angels, Goodness, Mercy and Shirley, and now their new apprentice, Will. I love how she always has a happy ending for her characters, which is really nice to read (even if it is predictable). This book is no different from her other Christmas books. It is actually a little more simpler than her other books though. There is no real depth of character development in this one and it is really more predictable than her others.

This time, the three angels are called to help answer Wendie's prayer that her daughter, Lucie will find the peace and the love of a good man. Lucie is the chef of an upcoming restaurant in Brooklyn, New York, called "Heavenly Delight." Aren is a food critic for one of the newspapers in NYC. Earlier in the year, they had bumped into each other at the Times Square, celebrating the start of a new year. Eleven months later, they meet again. This time, they get the divinely-inspired nudge to get their relationship going.

It is a sweet story and the reason why I give it a four instead of a three, is because I relaxed so much while reading it and to me, that is divinely-inspired.
