New York City is always in need of divine intervention and this holiday season finds the always inspired and somewhat impulsive angels, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy answering three heart heartfelt prayers …and teaching some important lessons along the way. And Goodness, along with Mercy and Shirley, know all three women have a lot to learn.

Brynn, a dedicated inner-city teacher, wants to make a difference in her troubled student’s lives; she wants them to learn to dream.

Hannah needs to learn to f

Now New York City
Three slightly devilish angels
Helping with romance

Three couples, angels
None of plots can have much depth
But sweetness abounds

I was looking for a heart warming and perhaps sentimental story with Christmas as the background theme but I found all that is wrong with the typical romance that everyone seems to gobble up. Biased attitudes towards minorities, a perpetuation of ignorance and stupidity in women and manizing
(objectification of men) I don't mean just physical objectification. I mean idealizing a particular kind of man as an object to own. The kind of man that is so hard working he is a workaholic but somehow has

Story of 3 angels sent to answer the prayers relatives have for different people. Although set during the Christmas season, it is not really a holiday story. Have read later books in the series which were more humorous. More about the 3 people than about the Angels doing much to help. Enjoyed the story of Brynn the most since there seemed to be more build-up about her difficulties as a teacher. Surprised at how quickly Hannah fell in love with a guy not intended for her by her family. Her grandm ...more

Ms Macomber found herself in this one... The first book I read in this series was book #4 and loved it, so started with book 1. Although book 1 and 2 were good they weren't as good as book 4 and the air about them were a bit different. BUT this book was very nice! Although the middle seemed to kind of 'got stuck' and the ending was hurried up until the end I would have given this a 5 star rating but the end was hurried into one chapter after being dragged out for about 10. But still a good book. ...more

Brynn, Hannah, and Jenny all have dreams. Brynn is a teacher who dreams of making a difference in her students' lives, even if Roberto Alcantara thinks she is in over her head. Hannah is so used to following her parents' wishes that she is engaged to one man, Carl, while in love with another, Joshua. Small-town girl Jenny's dreams of becoming a star on Broadway are growing dimmer by the day and she misses her family - and Trey LaRue. All three must learn to follow their hearts and they'll have s ...more

Debbie Macomber is a favorite of mine and I was so excited to read this book at Christmas time on my vacation. I didn't realize that this was part of a series and series always hook me so I may read some of the others. Basically there were three stories in this book, one for each angel. Only one disappointed me- the one about the teacher, Brynn. As I read that one I noticed way too many parallels with the movie Dangerous Minds. The plot wasn't similar it was almost exact. One of the student's na ...more

The 3 angels, Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are back in New York right at Thanksgiving time. They each have to see that prayers are answered, with orders from Archangel Gabriel, NOT to get into trouble this Christmas season. The ending of the book is good as we learn what happens to the 3 assignments in the years to come. This is a "feel good" book that is easy to read and makes you want to feel angel wings around you.

Another cute book featuring Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy. To be honest, though, I didn't think the angels played as significant a role in this book as they have in the previous two. I really liked the parts where Shirley would just stand watch over (and with) Brynn. To me, that shows what a real angel is most likely to do in our lives.

The 3 angels, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, are at it again -in New York this time. Their assignments almost prove too much for them, but banding together they get the jobs done. Entertaining.

Shirley, Goodness and Mercy have several prayers requests that must be met by Christmas Day: Brynn, Hannah and Jenny. Brynn is a new teacher in NYC, many challenges in the classroom and her lovelife. Hannah, a good Jewish daughter wants to follow her parents' plan and marry Carl, but this handsome man she met at the parade is all she can think about. Jenny, a dancer/singer, is waiting for her big break, or waiting for that handome cowboy from back home? And in true angel style they discuss at th ...more

This is one in a series of "Angels" book. There all about 3 Angles, Shirley, Goodness and Mercy who go behind the scenes to help 3 different people with various problems. Always nice to read after reading a very intense book.

A fun read. Love the names of the angels. Unfortunately, the reader (I 'read' an audiobook) was terrible at the New York Jewish accent.

Meh... This was okay in so far that it was readable but the story was too cutesy for me. I wanted to read it because it was sent to me but I wouldn't search out the other two in the series. If you need something light and fluffy to read, this is perfect!

This series is a feel good series and can pull your heart strings. However so far this book in the series pulls the heartstrings more than the others. It was a tearjerker in places.
