Where Angels Go
Mira, Oct 2007, $16.95
Although he knows they are the worst rule breakers in heaven and expects them to one day cause him to have heart failure, Archangel Gabriel realizes that the angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy somehow get heavenly results. So he reluctantly sends the trio back to earth for Christmas to answer human prayers for divine intervention, but also sternly warns them to abide by the heavenly rulebook.
Mercy is tasked with helping an elderly man Harry find some peace before he dies as he fears leaving his beloved wife behind. Goodness is to assist Beth who is afraid of taking a second chance at love ever since her forever marriage ended rather quickly. Finally Shirley is to grant a wish to a little boy who just wants to keep Rusty the dog, but his family cannot afford another mouth to feed.
When it comes to Shirley, Goodness and Mercy readers know that WHERE ANGELS GO, trouble follows. As always with this series (see A GIFT TO LAST), Debbie Macomber provides a lighthearted entertaining angelic romp. Readers will appreciate the three heavenly visitors as they break the rules, cause havoc, and bring good cheer to those in need including the audience.
