About the Author

They enjoy spending time with their family and being outdoors, kayaking, hiking, birdwatching and fishing, but summer is short in Wisconsin, so it's important to have indoor hobbies, too. Cathe has been a quilter and teacher of quiltmaking for over 25 years, and she enjoys just about any kind of creative work, especially those involving fiber or paper. She enjoys writing stories with eccentric characters of all ages. Her books will make you laugh and make you cry - and then make you laugh again.

Snow Angels Truthfully? I did not like Lisa. I did not like her condescending attitude to those that were not the same as she was. I loved how Pete played along with her, though I would have been beyond embarrassed at the way things turned out. I think Cathe did a great job of showing how Lisa changed, and the storyline was great. I just felt bad for Pete and his friends throughout the story. I think maybe the reason I feel so much this way is because I see this so much in the way I was raised, and am trying to leave.

This is an awesome read! Lisa gets roped into helping out at the community center and gets more than she has bargained for. In comes Pete and the hilarity and community service ensue! You will love this story about life, community and love. It will make you want to reach out into your own community and make a difference.

(I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I also am part of the author's facebook group. In no way does this affect my opinions in this review) Lisa is a widow who blames herself for not being present when her late husband contracted the illness that took his life. She's a podiatric nurse now. She also has PTSD around her loss. She gets "guilted" by her sister-in-law to serve Thanksgiving at the Homeless Shelter, where an incident sends her reeling and forces her to abandon her service to hide. Anders "Pete" Petersen works with the men at the Shelter, but when Lisa first meets him, she mistakes him for a client. She finds that her elderly patients need help, and assumes Pete needs the work, so, without talking to him, she dreams up a scheme to help out both ends of the equation, little knowing just how much she's also helping herself. I haven't laughed this hard in a while, nor cried as much. In this funny, poignant novella, Cathe Swanson reminds our jaded world just what the holidays are all about. Looking forward to seeing this author in other works. Highly recommended (This novella is also part of the Christmas Lights boxed set)
