 A Christmas Carol meets It’s A Wonderful Life 

Blurb: A letter for Sonja’s deceased friend arrives at the post office in Michigan, and with it a proposal. With her father threatening to kick her out of his home, Sonja impulsively responds, offering to travel west to be a substitute bride. At the same time, Louis’s railroad promotion sends him back to Michigan, the one place on earth he’d hoped to never return—where Christmas past was full of pain. A mysterious stranger leaves him marked copies of “A Christmas Carol” as he considers romancing Sonja in Christmas present. Will Louis discern the best choices for Christmas future? Does it include the Poor House, again? Even so—will God bring healing and love to him this year?

Endorsement from Julie Lessman for Lilacs for Juliana



THE SWEET SCENT OF ROMANCE
Not only are lilacs my favorite flower, but Carrie Fancett Pagels is one of my favorite people and authors, which makes Lilacs for Juliana a sure win for me and any reader who loves sweet romance in a truly unique and delightful setting. This is the third book in the Christy Lumberjack Series, and what a joy it was to return to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with its breathtaking pine forests and clean freshwater lakes. From the beauty of Mackinac Island to the rustic charm of a bustling lumber camp, Fancett Pagels weaves a wonderful spell of tender romance with a touch of mystery that will take you away to a memorable place and a truly memorable read.
