12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaways!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful Christmas season. Now that the weather is turning colder, it is a wonderful time to curl up under a blanket and read a book. So, I’m excited to announce that I will be participating in the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaways!

My Giveaway
One eBook copy of my newest release, Beauty Restored

** This giveaway runs from December 14th - December 31st **


Book Summary

While volunteering at a youth camp in the Ozark Mountains, Carmen Riley sponsors a challenging group of teenage girls. She longs to make a difference in their lives, but unsettling news from home rattles her confidence. When Carmen meets a charming young pastor, will his wise advice give her the courage she desperately needs?

After discovering that the camp is in danger of closing, Pastor Andrew vows to save it. With Carmen’s help, he rallies a group of sponsors to come up with a plan of action. However, the task could cost him much more than he bargains for.

In a race against time, a common goal unites them, but unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear them apart. Will their relationship and faith in God endure long enough to see Beauty Restored?

    1. Thanks for stopping by Andra! I'm so glad you enjoyed finding out more about my new release and thanks for entering in the giveaway. How neat that your family is from the Ozarks. It is so beautiful out there. Blessings. ~Rachel

  3. Hello, Rachel. I would like to read Beauty Restored for a couple of reasons. First, I enjoy Christian fiction, but contemporary Christian romance is probably my favorite. Adding in some mystery or suspense is a bonus. Second, I had caught you on a blog back in October and immediately put all three of your books on my Amazon wish list. Third, I enjoy finding new and/or independent authors that I can be one of the first to discover. I enjoy sharing new reads with friends who haven't discovered them yet. It's probably one of those possessive "I found them first" things. haha Blessings for success in your writing and completed works.

    1. I almost forgot - Have a wonderful Christmas filled with all the reasons we celebrate. Foremost, Christ Himself.
