Since his wife's fatal car crash, Seth Webster is flat out with his architect career and caring for his darling, doting rascal twin sons Jason and Judd (6), whose unrelenting mischief chased every housekeeper the agency sent in no time. Mrs. Merkle turns up mysteriously, but is so good at minding boys and house that her name gets corrupted into Mrs. Miracle. Sneakily, she also pulls miraculous strings to make sure recluse Seth dates again with single mother Reba Maxwell, also to the kids' liking, through their school's Christmas show. Written by
This movie is one, a first for me, that I can truly say is BETTER than the book. (The book contains too many other subplots, especially the annoying, psychotic in-laws.) I can easily see why they were omitted to make the story fit into a two hour made-for-TV drama.....................
The movie followed the book closely, but did not give us enough Mrs. Merkle "Miracles". You were never quite sure what she was...Debbie Macomber should have taken a few more clues from the old Nanny and the Professor show and stolen a few more subtle hints as to Mrs. Merkle's powers...................
The book is the last by author Debbie Macomber I could tolerate reading....her writing has become trite and preachy instead of entertaining and interesting and are not worth the price charges for novels these days......................
If you did not like this movie, you will HATE Debbie Macomber's books written in the past 10 yrs (her earlier works were actually better)............................
