Item description for The Wrong Christmas Carol by A. Ferguson J....
When Gabby D'Angelo's car is stolen, she doesn't expect it to be returned with a baby in it. Baby Carol was born on Christmas and wears a hospital bracelet stating her mother is Gabby D'Angelo. But how is that possible? Gabby wasn't pregnant, so why does everyone suddenly believe the baby is hers? Mike Archer doesn't believe the baby is Gabby's. He's kept a close eye on the woman who lives across the hall from him, and he knows she wasn't pregnant. Yet, why is everything falling into place-from children's services to her work-to make it seem as if baby Carol truly does belong to Gabby? Mike is a doctor, so he suggests a DNA test to prove to everyone, including Gabby, that Carol really belongs to someone else. But Mike is in for a big surprise because the facts aren't quite what they seem. An old man's heartfelt Christmas prayer has combined with an angelic mistake to create a miracle that could prove to be the greatest gift of all if only Gabby and Mike will open their hearts and take a chance on a very special holiday love

The Wrong Christmas Carol Jan 7, 2008
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 right.
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 else said.
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 happy.
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.

enchanting paranormal romance Dec 23, 2006
Gabby D'Angelo and Mike Archer are the objects of their landlord Mr. Shepard's match making efforts but it has been two years and neither has made a move on the other. When Gabby's car gets stolen at the mall, she returns home in a cab; Mike helps her bring her packages to her apartment and waits with her until the police arrive. When they do, they tell her they found her car and her baby Carol who is wearing a hospital ID bracelet.
There is only one problem with that scenario: Gabby never gave birth and Mike knows that because he has seen her almost everyday for the last year and knows she was never pregnant. When he calls the hospital, the people in charge confirm Gabby gave birth to Carol on Christmas at midnight. Social services case workers insist Gabby should keep the baby until they find her parents. Mike has them take DNA tests and the results show that Mike and Gabby are Carol's parents. As both adults get closer to the infant, they open their hearts to each other until a misunderstanding threatens to destroy their fledging relationship. Little do they know that in addition to their landlord's meddling, they have a guardian angel trying to rectify a mistake so everyone could be happy.
J.A. Ferguson's romance really puts readers in the mood for Christmas. The audience feels happy, contented and satisfied after reading this book about two people who fall in love with a baby and each other. Both the hero and the heroine are decent likeable and heartwarming people; the kind that deserves to have good things happening to them. This is an enchanting paranormal romance.
