By Sophia Whitfield

For over more than two decades, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Debbie Macomber’s wildly popular Christmas novels have been as much a part of the holiday season as carols and mince pies. She has sold over 150 million books worldwide.

This year the beloved angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy are back in this latest feel good novel by Debbie Macomber.

Full of Christmas cheer with an inevitability about it, this book is the perfect read in a sitting material with a cup of tea and a Christmas treat.

This time apprentice angel Will joins in the fun with Shirley, Goodness and Mercy as they intervene to help along a budding romance.

The angels arrive on Earth on New Year’s Eve excited about joining in the festivities in Times Square. Will, the apprentice angel, spying two strangers, takes it upon himself to provide some heavenly intervention. He accidentally knocks his wing throwing Lucie Ferrara and Aren Fairchild together just in time for midnight on a busy New Year's Eve. Meeting before their designated time causes confusion and mistrust leading the angels to cook up a plan to rectify Will’s error in judgement.

Circumstances keep Lucie and Aren apart, but a year after their chance meeting neither of them has stopped thinking about the other.

Aren is a food critic who goes under the pseudonym of Eaton Wells, while Lucie together with her mother Wendy has been establishing her own now popular restaurant, Heavenly Delights.

Lucie prides herself on her abilities as a chef and is garnering a loyal following of customers, but Aren could change all this. Sent by his newspaper to review Heavenly Delights Aren is keen to partake of the food he has heard so much about. He has no idea that Lucie is the chef at Heavenly Delights.

The angels are keen to administer assistance, still feeling responsible for the two meeting earlier than deigned probable. The results are catastrophic and lead to a series of events that threaten to prevent Lucie and Aren ever getting together.

Keen to reunite the young couple, these four angels might just conjure up a Christmas miracle? The perfect read on Christmas Eve – you can fit it in between all the cooking and wrapping!
