Publisher's Summary

Every Christmas, three lovable angels visit Earth. Once a year, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are allowed to intervene (or, more accurately, interfere!) in human affairs. Despite their frequent misadventures and the chaos they often cause, things always seem to turn out right….

This Christmas, join Those Christmas Angels as they respond to Anne Fletcher’s prayer request. She wants her son, Roy, to meet a special woman - and the angels contrive to throw Julie Wilcott in his path (literally!).

Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy offer you laughter and Christmas cheer in this heartwarming story!

A charming Christmas Story

As always, Debbie Macomber's story about Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy is enjoyable and lighthearted. I hardly put my IPOD down from the minute I start the story. This is a feel good story with touching parts and funny parts. I have read all the angle stories and look forward to more.

A sweet Christmas storie

I'm not a religious person; however, I love these stories. Super sweet and very Christmassy. If you love Christmas please read for a few laughter and tears of joy.

Christmas cheer

What did you love best about Those Christmas Angels: A Selection from Angels at Christmas?

This is one of those novels that is intrinsically Christmas-ey without being strictly about Christmas. Macomber takes some absolutely ridiculous situations and brings them to life in a realistic way. She also takes some very difficult real life situations and creates a very unique tale. I love how this reality mixes seamlessly with the angelic. The final chapter or epilogue wraps everything up nicely without being cheezy. It’s simply a conclusion to the tale that leaves you feeling satisfied.

Watching these characters get to know one another was absolutely hilarious at times and completely heartbreaking at others. You get to know them so well that you can’t help but love and feel for them, each in their own way. They are both very strong characters but so different from one another that it’s a striking relief. I really appreciate how Macomber takes the time to introduce you to both main characters’ pasts and presents, both how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them. The supporting cast was also great. The angels were absolutely priceless. Although they are a staple character throughout this series, you can easily get to know them through just this tale.

Overall, this was a brilliant Christmas tale that can be read either as a standalone or as part of this series. I’d definitely recommend it to those in need of a bit of Christmas cheer presented in a bit of a different manner.

What does Sandra Burr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is quickly becomming one of my favorite narrators

Feel good read

Any additional comments?

Who doesn't like to start the season off with a sappy, feel good, angels book? I have since found some really different, interesting, Christmas reads. These books make good Hallmark Movies

I love Shirley, Goodness & Mercy stories

Would you consider the audio edition of Those Christmas Angels: A Selection from Angels at Christmas to be better than the print version?

I'm not sure that it's better, necessarily. I read the first three Angel books years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed them. I love reading books, but listening has become more convenient these days, as I can do it while working, and no one can tell it's a book, not music.
I'm sure a lot of people find the Angel books sedate or even boring because there's no sex, cursing, or "ACTION". But that is precisely why I like them so much. This series is just a good read of a lot of sweet stories, with an abundance of Angel mischief thrown it to make it fun.

Wonderful Christmas escapism

I recently discovered Debbie Macomber's books after watching the film adaptation of "Mrs Miracle" on tv. This book didn't disappoint, recounting the adventures of 3 well meaning but sometimes hapless angels sent to earth to answer people's prayers. The results are heartwarming, moving and romantic - perfect to listen to while wrapping presents! A delightful well read book - I can't wait to listen to more from this author.

those Christmas Angels

I love to listen to romance and this had all the potential of a great escape story but at times the reader was stilted as if the was seeing the words for the first time or a very nervous actor who can only say one ward at a time which made me feel like I was almost encouraging her to continue. It was odd because it was not like this through out the whole book but for enough to be off putting. The story was lovely though and I was able to put it on and listen to it while I was cooking and being slightly distracted made it easier to finish the story. I was not however able to listen to it with out this distraction.
