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.

My take on this book:
What initially drew me to this book was the cover, after all I am always a sucker for any story that involves an animal, but once I started reading I found myself enjoying not only the writing style of the author, but the plot as well. The fact that it was a contemporary romance where second chances were involved was great. The small town setting was an added bonus. Overall a story that has so many things that I look for in a good contemporary read, a small town feel, a bit of sexual tension that isn't overdone along with characters who I really wanted to see get their happily ever after, along with pets, I really am a dog person but honestly I loved the cat in this story, made "Christmas at Angel Lake" a book that I read in one sitting. A great read at Christmas but honestly I wouldn't hesitate to read this one any time of the year.
