I wanted to like this one so much more than I did.. It just seemed a little jumpy to me (going from one character or couple to another)
I enjoyed the story between Seth and Reba and even enjoyed the ending between Reba and her sister, Vicki.. But I felt the argument's between Seth's children's grandparents were a little on the dull side and didn't really seem needed to tell the main story.. It was just a filler.
Description from the publisher:
Seth Webster's heart never healed after he lost his adored wife. Now, with Christmas approaching, wild twin boys to raise alone, a home in chaos, and the latest in a long line of exasperated housekeepers quitting in disgust, Seth needs more than help to keep his family togethe...he needs a miracle.
And then a miracle arrives on his doorstep. Her name is Mrs. Merkle, but the kids call her "Mrs. Miracle"--and from the moment the warm, knowing, and very patient nanny appears, everything is different. Her sassy spirit is infectious, and it gives Seth the courage to approach Reba, a beautiful travel agent who's been hurt and betrayed, and is afraid to ever love again. Through the magic of faith--and with a little help from a children's Christmas pageant and a lot of encouragement from Mrs. Miracle--Seth and Reba might just be able to find a Christmas miracle of their very own: true love
