Christmas at Angel Lake

Rescued Hearts 2

This is a heartwarming story is so many ways. There is romance in bloom. The warming of a Grouch's heart. The love of the pet you thought you saved which in turn saves you. What more could you ask for.

Maddie Barrymore is headed to her pregnant sister's home after her boyfriend takes off clearing out their apartment of his things and quite a few of hers. Heartbroken, pregnant and unsure of the future she is traveling in a snowstorm, just hoping to make it to her destination before the weather gets any worse. Then a kitten runs in front of her car. She ends up in a ditch off the side of a driveway to avoid him. Getting out she catches the poor thing and as she is trying to warm him the caretaker of the old mansion assumes she is there to take up residence. A misconception Maddie does not correct.

For five years Maddie has stayed at the old MacLeash home. She has tried to pay it forward for the kindness she received that wintery night so long ago. Now she is in a hurry to pack up and get out because the owners have decided to pay a visit. The first visit in over nine years. Logan MacLeash, a film producer is headed to his late grandmother's estate to regroup following the break up with his lady love. When he stops at the grocers for basic supplies he is continuously stopped to be thanked by the town’s residence for his kindness to them. When he tells them he does not know what they are talking about, the answer is always the same, "Maddie said you would not like our thanking you." Arriving at the house, instead of peace and quiet he expected to find there is the mysterious Maddie, a ginger colored cat and Maddie's four year old son. Entertained by Maddie's explanation of how she came to be in residence he makes a deal with her. She plays Scheherazade and tells him a story each night and she and her son can stay without worry of being arrested for trespassing.

Then there is the lone dog that has run away from the mean people who stole him away from his mother and siblings. Fighting to survive when he catches the scent of HIS human. Finally he knows he exists and must find him. Unsure of where he is going he will find him and in doing so will find a home.

Once again Edie Ramer delivers a story that leaves you with a warm glow around your heart and a smile on your face. She never fails to make you glad that you spent your time devouring her words. This is the second story in her Rescued Hearts Series, but I hope it will not be the last.

If you are still looking for another excellent storyline check out Edie Ramer’s Miracle Interrupted Series. It’s about a town in search of a prophesized miracle.

If you like a touch of whimsy you will also love her Galaxy Girls series which tells the stories of the four women who escaped Kergeron where they were no more than breeding stock with no control over their lives. They have come to Earth to find a place to hide and live in peace. Something they will have to fight for.

Or perhaps Spirits are more to your liking. Ms. Ramer has those as well with her Haunted Hearts Series.

Then there are here singles that are stand alone, but believe me when I tell you they are just as great as her series titles.

I know we are supposed to use 5 stars sparingly, but could not help it. I love Edie Ramer's books and as far as I am concerned this book deserves a 5 star as well.

Book Blurb for Christmas at Angel Lake

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.

Like HEARTS IN MOTION, 25 cents from every CHRISTMAS AT ANGEL LAKE book sold will go to the Washington County Humane Society, Wisconsin.
