reviewertoppick2I feel like I’ve gotten a gift from Night Owl Reviews and reviewer Delanna! I have 5 Top Pick reviews that were posted yesterday! They are Hearts in Motion, Christmas at Angel Lake, Dead People, Dead People in Love, and Galaxy Girls.

What makes it something I needed is because the release of my next Rescued Hearts book, CRAZY, SEXY LOVE, will be delayed. I was planning to have it out in late December or early January, but I ended up making extensive revisions. I’m still revising, but it’s almost there. I should be sending it to a reader in a couple of days, and I’m much happier with the way it’s going. It’s different from other books I’ve written, but it’s also the same in some ways. The hero is a drummer in a band, and this will be my third book with a musician hero. I seem to be drawn to them. And of course, it has a rescue cat. 🙂

My last bit of good news is that “The Fat Cat“, the short story from the charity anthology ENTANGLED, is up now. I’m putting it free where I can, but I had to put it for 99 cents at Amazon (and B&N, which won’t price it any lower). I’m waiting for Amazon to price match before I make an announcement. I haven’t even made a page for it on my Website yet, and I’ll do that as soon as I’m done with my revisions.

Here’s a quote from Delanna’s for Christmas at Angel Lake:
“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.”

In case I don’t post before the holidays, I hope yours is amazing!

This is the last day of my Tasty Review Tour for Christmas at Angel Lake, and I’m so thrilled! It started awesome, it continued awesome, and it ended awesome. 🙂 Two reviewers didn’t post because of illness in their families, and I understand that. I have quotes from quite a few of the reviews on Christmas at Angel Lake’s book page. Christmans_at_Angel_Lake_200x300_72dpiHere are just a few review snippets:

“Certain to put a smile on your face, this story demands to be read and then re-read often.” ~I Am, Indeed

“I absolutely love the story between Maddie and Logan, it’s beautiful, raw, heartfelt, and sweet…. It is a perfect holiday novel and you would be missing out if you let it pass you by.” ~Escaping Reality One Book at a Time

“Christmas at Angel Lake by Edie Ramer is an awesome book! Maddie and Logan’s story is unique and entertaining… This one definitely put me in the Christmas mood!” ~Brooke Blogs

I’m happy about so many things. November is the month of gratitude. Some of you know my husband had a run-in with a deer in late September – and my husband was on a motorcycle. He broke a bone in his leg and a couple in his ankle. We’re glad it wasn’t worse. He’s still using the “boot,” but he’s walking now, and he went back to work this week. And I finished the first draft of my next Rescued Hearts book and am halfway done with the second. I do feel a lot of gratitude, and the reviews just make it even better.

What are you grateful for?

I love the stories that Maddie tells, I love the interaction with Maddie and Logan, I love the holiday theme, I love the point of view from a dog…I love that I can highly recommend this story if you’re looking for a feel good, quirky, adorable, Christmas story that melted my heart.” ~Nikki, Storm Goddess Book Reviews

I love my new cover! CHRISTMAS AT ANGEL LAKE, the second book in my Rescued Hearts series, will be up in October. Here’s the description:

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. I love this book more than the first one – but I have to admit, I always think that about my latest book. And I’m really excited about my next book. I’ll let you know when it’s available!
