The bumbling but well-meaning angels Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy are back, along with their apprentice, Will (Where Angels Go). During an unauthorized trip to Earth to see Times Square on New Year's Eve, Will causes two lonely strangers to bump into each other and connect. Unfortunately, the timing is wrong, and now 11 months later the angels have to fix the mess they've made with Lucie and Aren. Lucie is busy running her new restaurant, and Aren is a food critic. The angels' "help" leads to a bad review for the restaurant, and the chances of a match between Lucie and Aren grow slimmer. A little more divine help, though, will reunite them in time for a memorable Christmas. VERDICT Best-selling Macomber (The Inn at Rose Harbor) spins another sweetly charming holiday romance that will please her many fans.
