Author Debbie Lynne Costello’s endorsement for Lilacs for Juliana:
Charming, romantic, and vivid details. This author packs a whole lot into her novella and leaves you with a sigh.

Lilacs for Juliana takes you to the Lumbercamps of Michigan. Carrie Fancett Pagels did a beautiful job taking you back in time when lumbering in Michigan was a way of life for many. You feel you’re right there with her characters as she has flushed each one out and leaves you with a three dimensional person that you can easily fall in love with. Ms. Pagels puts so much into her novella that you walk away with the satisfaction of reading a full length book.
Follow the story of the librarian, Juliana Beauchamps who sets her sights on Richard Christy a local lumberjack and root for her as she battles to keep her job when a library board member resents having a female librarian and seeks to get her fired.

   The Substitute Bride is set to release in September of 2015 as part of the O’ Christmas Town Series with multiple authors.
