It is time to start reading Christmas books! Have you seen them coming out lately?
Edie Ramer’s books get better and better. Her books have always been good, but it seems that I enjoy each one a little more than the last one. Her latest book, Christmas at Angel Lake is an entertaining contemporary romance book and is the perfect Christmas story. You have down on their luck characters who need a little help from others and you get to see the good side of people. It comes with a heartwarming happy ever after, too!
Logan and Maddie are characters that seem very real. The snarky way the two of them interact is quite entertaining and emotional because you can see through their defenses. They are both hurting from a betrayal. Logan comes home to seek solace only to find a squatter. Maddie and her son have been living in Logan’s house without permission for years. Maddie is prepared to leave but for some reason, grumpy Logan wants her to stay in exchange for Maddie telling him a story every night. Oh my gosh, the stories are a hoot. I wish Maddie told me stories with her attitude. They are usually based on real situations but told in a fairy tale sort of way that is quite captivating.
Christmas at Angel Lake is a story full of hope. Sure, you have to get through the many ups and downs in the story first, but when you do, there is always a smile on your face at the end. For the animal lovers out there, in Christmas at Angel Lake you get to read a side story that weaves into the main story story about a dog finding his way home and a kitten being saved in the winter and loved by a family. The animals always have an extra sense of what is going no which adds a little twist to the story and make Edie’s books unique. If you are looking for a heart warming, hopeful, contemporary romantic Christmas story, I recommend you try Christmas at Angel Lake.

About the Book:
A kitten saved her…
Broke, pregnant and deserted by her boyfriend, Maddie Barrymore swerves to avoid a kitten while driving in a Wisconsin blizzard—and her life takes another turn. Like Puss in Boots, she stays in an empty house. She has the baby, the kitten, gets a job and a degree…yet every day she’s ready to flee if the real owner shows up.
Five years later, he does…
Dumped by the woman he loves, film producer Logan MacLeesh’s heart is as dark as one of his movies. He plans to hole up in his grandmother’s old mansion and throw himself into his work…until he discovers the sexy squatter and her four-year-old son. Before he can call the sheriff, Maddie’s tale of how she ended up there entertains him. They make a deal that as long as she tells him a story every night, she and her son can stay. Even the cat, though Logan’s always been a dog person.
A dog in need of saving…
Far away in another state, a homeless dog lifts his head, sniffs…and smells him. The human who’s meant for him. As he heads through the snow toward the scent, his journey seems impossible, even though it’s Christmas, a time when miracles happen.
