FREE!!! The Substitute Bride by Carrie Fancett Pagels!

The Substitute Bride by Carrie Fancett Pagels

It's my birthday today, January 5th, 2016!!!  So click on the image above for a birthday goody you can take home with you!!! That's my bestselling new Christmas novella that has a 4.9 Star rating based on 33 reviews at this point!  If you read The Substitute Bride and like it, please consider doing a review! 


"A Christmas Carol" meets "It’s A Wonderful Life"

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?
