Where Angels Go | Petite Book Review

Book: Where Angels Go Authoress: Debbie Macomber
Pages: 304 Publisher: Mira
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, Audio
Goodreads: Where Angels Go
Genre: Romance, Adult Fiction, Christmas

My summary:
3 Christmas prayers
3 Quirky angels
1 Perfect holiday story

My say: I am quickly becoming a Debbie Macomber fan. From the moment Gabriel parted the clouds to show the angels their assignments, I was thrilled and fascinated. This story is sweet, clever, fast paced, and chocked full of frothy fun holiday cheer.

My star rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My recommendation: Perfect for anyone seeking holiday merriment.

My favorite part: The angels misbehaving.

My favorite character: Gabriel of course!

My cover thoughts: I would love to visit this town.

My kiddie-o-meter: As clean as angel wings.

My holiday cheer meter: Low Medium High

My final say: Do you make Christmas wishes or perhaps special Christmas prayers?

  1. Sounds like a great little book to add to a Christmas reading list. In regards to your question, we don't make wishes per se, but we always try to keep others in our thoughts and hearts, especially at this time of year. Happy reading!

  3. Love the idea of this book--looking at Christmas from the angels point of view! Christmas can be such a difficult time of year. Many a Christmas I've prayed for a hurting person to have an extra-special holiday and even had a hand in making one last Christmas unforgettable. The memories of that dear friend's Christmas have sweetened every other . . .

  13. This one sounds simple irresistible. I'm starting to compile a Christmas "to read" list from all the wonderful suggestions you've given me. Thanks so much!

    PS: I tend to lean towards Christmas wishes as I'm not much into praying.
