The Trouble With Angels ~~ Debbie Macomber

The Trouble With Angels by Debbie Macomber
A Season for Giving...and Loving

It is a time of joy and gladness--yet even the wonder of Christmas cannot brighten lives burdened by loneliness and despair. So when three "rush" prayers fly up from the City of Angels, three real angels fly down to Earth to answer the call. And this is no ordinary celestial trio, but Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy--incomparable, irrepressible, and somewhat outrageous heavenly helpers dedicated to abolishing sadness in their own special fashions. It will take more than one miracle, however, to mend the broken hearts they've come to repair. But Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are on the case--and they're not going to disappear before they deliver the best holiday gift of all: love!

The Trouble With Angels is the second book in the Angles Everywhere series by popular American author, Debbie Macomber. Once again, Christmas is fast approaching and, against his better judgement, Archangel Gabriel sends three angels, Prayer Ambassadors Shirley, Goodness and Mercy, down to Los Angeles to deal with the desperate prayers of certain LA supplicants.

Karen prays that her mom, Maureen can stop hating her dad, Brian, even though he left them for someone new, and get on with her own life. Oh, and she’d like a horse too, if it’s not too much trouble. Shirley delights in this assignment, finding that Thom Nichols and his riding school might just answer both prayers.

Goodness is sent to Pastor Paul Morris, a widower who has been unable to deal with the grief of losing his wife to cancer. His friends and parishioners have flooded Gabriel’s prayer book, and Goodness sees this is a challenging assignment that will need some careful thought.

Mercy is sent to see the elderly Catherine Goodwin, who prays for the right partner for her beloved grandson, Ted. She believes that Joy Palmer, resident service director at her home, Wilshire Grove, is the right candidate, so when Ted turns up to visit with the gorgeous Blythe in tow, she may have to rethink. Mercy is quietly confident, though, that she can see this prayer answered.

Macomber gives the reader three separate, slightly Christmas themed, stories that are linked only by the Angels. They are sweet tales, mostly fairly predictable, although a twist or two keeps them interesting. The Queen of Feel Good keeps her title with this little collection.
