Mr. Shepard had a simple prayer. He
wanted his tenants Gabby D’Angelo and Mike Archer to find love
together. That they would finally realize what he had known
for awhile, they were perfect for each other.
Up in Heaven, Jack had made a mistake,
and quite a big one at that. He had intended on answering the
prayer request with a miracle, but instead had made a
significant faux-pas. Then he compounded his indiscretions as
he continued to blunder his way in attempting to make things
Gabby knew that Mr. Shepard was acting as
a matchmaker, but even he could never have planned this.
After reporting her car stolen, she was surprised when the
police officers arrived, telling her it was found and handed
over a baby to her. A baby they claimed was hers – it was
even written on the baby’s bracelet. She was Carol D’Angelo,
daughter of Gabrielle D’Angelo.
Mike wasn’t sure what to make of the
situation as the officers left the infant in Gabby’s care.
She wasn’t the mother, he definitely would have noticed the
fact that she’d been pregnant, not that he had been watching
her. They tried to contact the right people, such as the
social services and the hospital, but each time, the answer
came back that the baby should be with Gabby. Soon, Gabby
started believing this, but Mike was a man of science. There
was no way that the child was hers, no matter what everyone
Mr. Shepard was finally getting his
prayer answered. There was Gabby, and Mike spending time
together and they had a little girl. This made an old man
The Wrong Christmas Carol
is a wonderful story to read during Christmas or whenever
someone wants to read a book that captures the feelings of the
holidays. The Wrong Christmas Carol was
entertaining, especially the scenes showing the busy
activities surrounding Jack in the Pray Care Center. I
enjoyed watching as the romance grew between Gabby and Mike
and as they struggled to accept that perhaps a miracle had
truly happened. The only drawback to the story was that
although it had the feel of a light hearted romance, the last
portion read a little too dramatic. I felt that additional
poignancy was unnecessarily added. However, overall this is a
great holiday read.
