Review ~ CHRISTMAS AT ANGEL LAKE by Edie Ramer

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.

REVIEW
What a fantastic book!  I couldn't read it fast enough.  Maddie, a pregnant woman who ends up living in a vacant, yet cared for house.  She ends up staying for five years, instead of the two weeks she originally anticipated.  The owner of the house, Logan, a screenwriter/producer/director shows up and they end up falling in love.
 
Christmas at Angel Lake is a wonderful story of two people needing each other more than they ever thought possible.  Maddie and Logan are both witty and funny and it is heartwarming.  As an aside to their story, there is a dog searching for his "human" who travels three winters tracking his scent trying to find him.  The dog finally finds his "human" who ends up being Logan.  
 
Christmas at Angel Lake is a good read and I highly recommend it to everyone.  It's not too mushy, it's not overdone in anyway, it's perfect.
