Angels at the Table Book Review

One of my last books in my library pile that has been renewed to it limit and I finally got to reading it.  I am glad that no one else was on the waiting list for this one so that I could renew it.  Angels at the Table: A Christmas Novel (Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy) by Debbie Macomber was the next in the series for me to read.  I don't have a clue which order these books go in but after the first one, they all fit together pretty well and this was in line with all the others that I have already read.

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy know that an angel’s work is never done, especially during a time as wondrous as New Year’s Eve. With an apprentice angel, Will, under their wings, they descend upon Times Square in New York City eager to join in the festivities. And when Will spies two lonely strangers in the crowd, he decides midnight is the perfect time to lend a heavenly helping hand.      

Lucie Farrara and Aren Fairchild meet after bumping into each other—seemingly by accident—in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. They immediately hit it off and find they have a lot in common: Lucie is a burgeoning chef and Aren is a respected food critic. But just as quickly as they’re brought together, another twist of fate tears them apart, leaving Lucie and Aren with no way to reconnect.

A year later, Lucie is the chef of an acclaimed new restaurant and Aren is a successful columnist for a major New York newspaper. For all the time that’s passed, the two have not forgotten their one serendipitous evening—and neither have Shirley, Goodness, Mercy, and Will. To reunite the young couple, the angels cook up a brilliant plan: mix true love, a second chance, and a generous sprinkle of mischief to create an unforgettable Christmas miracle.

I enjoyed this book as much as the other books in the series but I can say that it wasn't my favorite.  These books sort of follow a pattern that there are two people with a problem and the angels come down to watch and make changes that they aren't supposed to do in order to make them happy.  All of the books follow the same pattern with different characters who you want to get together.  This book was no exception with Lucie, a chef, and Aren, a food critic, who meet too early and then loose touch.  This book was a fun and quick read with great characters and great writing.  It kept me entertained and glad that I picked this one up and continued reading past the holiday season.  I hope that you check out this book and others in the series at your local library or bookstore.  I think that you will enjoy these funny characters and nice stories.
