Where Angels Go - Review


Title: Where Angels Go
Author: Debbie Macomber

Rating: 3/5
Grade: A - Appropriate for all

In Where Angels Go Debbie Macomber brings back her mischevious angels; Shirley, Goodness and Mercy. Three prayer requestes have reached heaven just days before christmas, and the three angels are put on the cases. An elderly man, knowing he is not much longer for the world, sends a prayer that his wife be set up to be taken care of before he dies. The mother of a young divorced woman prays for her to let someone into her heart. And a young boy prays for what neither santa nor his parnets can bring him: a dog for christmas. All of these prayer requests hit snags, and all must be fulfilled before christmas.

I really enjoy reading Debbie Macomber's Christmas novels. They are just as sappy and heartwarming as I could want. This one fell a bit flat, though. It seemed to be three very short stroies that were strung together, and fleshed out in a hurry. There didn't seem to be as much of a feel for the characters or place as she usually manages to convey. And the stories were pretty predictable, without much saving writing or detail. But still, a sweet story to read at christmas time. And since we have snow on the ground here in Wyoming, I don't think it too early for christmas stories.
