Trouble with Angels Book Review

In the library, The Trouble with Angels by Debbie Macomber was on the shelf so I brought it home with me.  The great news is that this second book in the Angels Everywhere series which I just read the first book.  I love reading books in order and it is always hard to figure it out while sitting in the library trying to figure it out from the shelf and the smart phone or the computer.  For some reason, this series is not listed on her website!!  UGH!  I don't think that I can find the third book in the series at the library after searching on Amazon to find out which one was the third... so sad.

A Wing and a Prayer... When irrepressible angels Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy set out for the City of Angels to grant three rush Christmas prayer requests, they are sure they can help without resorting to, er, divine intervention. But they soon find it will take more than one miracle to teach their precious lessons of love—as well as make three special holiday dreams come true!

I enjoyed this book and the writing as I do most of Debbie Macomber's books.  The second in the series with the quirky angels Shirley, Goodness and Mercy who go to the City of Angels to help in other lives before the holiday season.  They work together as a team to help three different people who have had problems and send prayers up to God.  The Reverend Paul Morris is the one that had the most people praying for him after his wife passed away.  His life changed the moment that she left and he has had trouble with his faith.  The second was Ted who his grandmother Catherine prayed would find the right women.  He met who he thought was the best person for him but his grandmother disagreed with a little help of angels, she played match maker and Ted and Joy met.  Thom, the widower, who was raising his daughter, Paula, by himself met Maureen who after a horrible divorce was raising her daughter, Karen, alone.  Karen wants to learn to ride and asks to take riding lessons at Thom's stable where she meets her lifelong friend Paula who decide that there parents belong together.  Although at the beginning of the story there was no way that you could see any of these situations resolving themselves, everyone ended up happy by the end of the story.  The happy ending and great process to get there was wonderful and caused a few tears.  I hope that you check out this book and others in the series by Debbie Macomber the next time you are at the library or bookstore.  I know that you will enjoy it as much as I have!!
