Movie Review: MR. MIRACLE

Based on Debbie Macomber’s book with the same name, Mr. Miracle is a Hallmark Channel original movie that premiered last night. Spoiler alert: I’m going to discuss  the overall story but also point out some differences between the book and the movie version of Mr. Miracle. Harry Mills (Rob Morrow) is a Guardian Angel posing as an English teacher, and has been challenged to help Addie Folsom (Britt Irvin) find her path before Christmas or he won’t be able to stay on earth. Much like in the book, Harry’s innocence and lack of knowledge and understanding of humans reminds me so much of Clarence the angel from It’s a Wonderful Life.  Luckily Harry has another angel, Celeste (Michelle Harrison) helping him learn the ropes. There are a few differences from the book to the movie.… Continue

Mr. Miracle

MR. MIRACLE by Debbie Macomber

Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store. After trying to make it on her own, Addie has returned home to Tacoma for the holidays, but this time she plans to stay for good, enrolling in the local community college to earn her degree. What she doesn’t plan to do is run into Erich Simmons. Addie and her next-door neighbor, Erich, are like night and day. Growing up, he was popular and outgoing while she was rebellious and headstrong, and he never missed an opportunity to… Continue

Starting Over: Debbie Macomber on Life’s Rough Patches

To celebrate the start of spring, we’ll be featuring a series of posts all about making a fresh start. Our first feature comes from “the queen of women’s fiction” herself, Debbie Macomber. Enjoy.
In Starting Now you’ll meet Libby Morgan, who is becoming reacquainted with knitting after being laid off from a high-pressure job at a law firm. My husband Wayne and I are familiar with what it is like to go through a long stretch of unemployment, and to have to start over again from scratch. The year our daughter Jenny Adele was born, Wayne, who worked as a construction electrician, was out of work nearly nine months.

Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he made good use of the time and took classes at the community college while I cared for our older … Continue

Hit the Road with Debbie Macomber!

Author Debbie Macomber shares her love of road trips with RomanceatRandom readers. Wayne and I love road trips. Give us a destination, add a few audiobooks, a couple of suitcases, and we’re ready to head out the door. There are a few other basics needed, too. Despite having a GPS, Wayne likes to keep an atlas close at hand, and I need a couple of knitting projects. Given that, we’re as happy as a couple of kids on the first day of summer.… Continue
