I know I didn't write much about this book, I didn't want to give away a lot about the book. I loved this book, it made me cry. I was so caught up in the story and when I turned the last page, I was very disappointed because it ended. I wanted it to go on and on. I really think this book should be a movie.
This resulted in their giving him a chance to change his former ways, and all he has to do is to save an orphanage from foreclosure and for them to save the resources to pay the mortgage and place it on a sound situation going forwards. But the irony is, he has to do it as the orphanage’s new janitor, Jacob Porter, and the only thing he has available to really his wits and everything he knew before he died, as no one will recognize him from his previous billionaire existence.
The person he’s supposed to assist is the granddaughter of the home’s founder, Suzi Stephens, who’s at her wits end about their annual fundraising gala not raising enough funds to pay the balloon mortgage note and the home’s operating expenses. She’s in this fix because her father squandered the school’s funding on bad investments rather than keep everything where it had been previously.
While Suzi’s is suspicious of Jacob’s outward personae, she permits him to help in the fundraising activities. However in the month he has to complete his task and return to heaven and meet his fate, which happens to be on Christmas Eve, will he succeed. He never expected to finally fall in love with a woman enough to really care for her, but unfortunately he know his time left on Earth is swiftly coming to an end and that he won’t be around for his relationship with Suzi to become something lasting.
While his success in completing his task might to a foregone conclusion, what about Suzi and his relationship with her; will it end at midnight or will there be some sort of miraculous HEA for them to experience? I’m not saying, you’ll have to read this tender and possibly tear jerking endeavor by Ms. Clemmons to find out, and which is why I’ve given it 5 STARS.
Dr. Suzi Stephens needs a miracle and she certainly never expected it to come in the form of the children's home's new janitor.
Jacob Richison was a hard living, a bit reckless, very wealthy man who finds himself at the pearly gates and given a second chance. All he has to do to get inside heaven is save the home. But, he has to do that as Jacob Porter and do it by Christmas.
This new life he has been given brings many changes to the man who had been in the exact setting as these children. Now with this second chance will he learn to love and the true meaning of charity?
Angel for Christmas is a sweet, second chance (not at love this time but at life) Christmas tale that opens readers eyes to things that make you stop, think and be grateful. I enjoyed the book and the characters in it, especially sweet little Missy and the other children. The change in Jacob is subtle as he was always a good man, just a little caught up in possessions. Dr. Suzi is out of her depth in the business management side of things, she is a child psychologist and never wanted to run the place, just help the children cope with the life they had been handed.
If you need a sweet, contemporary that is perfect for the holidays or any day you need a touch of goodness then ANGEL FOR CHIRSTMAS by Caroline Clemmons is what you need.
