Book Review:
Christmas on Cougar Mountain by Nancy Radke is the first book by the author that I have read and I am so happy that I discovered her!

This is the story of Zoey who lives alone and teaches children with Dyslexia. A chance finding of a stray dog leads her to meet Kellen and his son, Reece who have just arrived to the town and to whom this stray belongs. This encounter soon leads to a heartwarming love between two people who are both wary and have their own reasons to not want to go the romance way. Will this festive season bring these two lovers together?

The cover, blurb and title are intriguing and had my interest peaked enough to read the book.

The plot is a straight forward one but it is the author's writing style and research on Dyslexia that makes this book a memorable one.

Nancy has a realistic, simple and yet engaging writing style. She had me feeling connected to the characters in the book and I especially connected to Reece who is so intelligent but hampered due to Dyslexia. The author has done her research on this condition and she gives valuable nuggets of wisdom to the readers that will surely help them understand people with this condition better and help them.

I learned so much about Dyslexia from this book and I am so thankful to Nancy for writing about a character with this condition and succeeding in showing that despite having Dyslexia, such people can be highly intelligent and be successful in life if only they are taken care of properly and helped to control their condition.

The romance between Kellen and Zoey looks a bit rushed but still managed to make me fall in love with these characters and had me rooting for a happily-ever-after for them.

I adored the dog, Sam who is so intelligent that he can free himself from any closed space. His escape adventures had me laughing and wishing for a similarly intelligent dog for myself.

All in all, Christmas on Cougar Mountain by Nancy Radke is a true holiday romance complete with Christmas magic and conveys the message that anything is possible if only we strive to achieve it. I enjoyed and loved the story and recommend it to all romance lovers. Curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy this sweet Christmassy romance. 4 out of 5 to it from me and I hope to read more from the author in the future.



I received an ARC from the author and I am very thankful to her. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
