Edie Ramer's books get better and better. Her books have always
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.

Maddie has had bad luck but she tries her best to make a living for her self and her son. She is smart, sexy and a hard worker. She is also a very caring person and does everything she can to help those in need. She also has a habit of letting people run over the top of her. She doesn't like to stir trouble up. Logan is also sexy and smart. He is also nursing a broken heart and wonders if he will ever get over his ex.I liked both of them as they both had faults but tried to overcome them.
This was a very charming story that in part shows the goodness of some people and how others can be mean. I really enjoyed the story from the start I like Maddie and rooted for her. She has had lots of bad things happen in the past but she has a great treasure in her son. I enjoyed getting to know her and all that has made her the way she is. Her son is just adorable and he will make her tear up in the end with what he wants for Christmas. Logan really likes Maddie even if she isn't like his ex. They have lots of tension between them but when they come together it is a nice addition to the story. It has just the right amount of sexual sizzle that it doesn't take away from the plot. The Cat I really liked. At times she seemed almost human. If your looking for a great feel good holiday book pick this one up.
