Teaser Tuesday 110: Mrs. Miracle

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Just finished Mrs. Miracle this evening, an older Christmas romance by Debbie Macomber. Now I can finally watch the movie, which I recorded two years ago, and have held off seeing until after I'd read the book. Here are a couple short teasers from the novel.

The air between them sizzled. Reba wondered if anyone else noticed. She did, and she knew he did, too.
(pg 85)

Seth must have realized who Vicki was because he moved closer, protectively, to her side. She was grateful for both the physical and the emotional support.
(pg 253)


With Christmas approaching and wild twin boys to raise alone, Seth Webster needs a miracle. His home is in chaos, the latest in a long line of exasperated housekeepers quitting in disgust, and he needs help keeping his family together. And then it 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.
