Synopsis from Goodreads:

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 together...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.

My Review:

What a fantastic story. Macomber’s smooth and low key writing brings this world together in a phenomenal manner. She draws you in with the tales of her characters, and keeps you there with the intricate plot development. One can easily picture each of the households that Macomber brings us into. Everything is presented in such a natural light that you find yourself transported there with ease.

I loved all of the characters that Macomber presents to us throughout. Everyone has a story to tell, and things go haywire just as often as they go right. It likens them to those that you meet every day. The way that their lives all intertwine is remarkable. It really makes you realise just how small this world is.

This was a fantastic story that I couldn’t put down. I read it in a single sitting. Her unique brand of storytelling never fails to draw me into the story.
