Review of Lumberjacks' Ball by Sr. Mary Lou Kwiatkowski

The Lumberjacks' Ball by Carrie Fancett Pagels

A Must READ for Christian Romance Readers!

The Lumberjacks' Ball (The Christy Lumber Camp Series, Book 2) 
by Carrie Fancett Pagels

Review by Sr. Mary Lou Kwiatkowski

This is one of the best novels I have ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a real page turner and I did not want to put it down. I loved the cover and the whole story line. I loved the characters Carrie created (even Sister Mary Lou).

What a wonderful Christian Romance. It was so well written and enjoyable. I definitely give this book a five star rating, plus, plus, plus. Thank you, Carrie.

Bio: Our guest reviewer is Sr. Mary Lou Kwiatkowski. She is a former nurse and a nun serving in Pittsburgh, Sister of the Holy Family of Nazareth. She's a Christian fiction reader and reviewer.

CFP: Thanks so much, Sr. Mary Lou, for your kind review!!! And I loved creating a character named after you! She will be appearing in the next book, currently titled, Lilacs for the Lumber Camp. And I feel pretty sure she'll show up for all those weddings that we hope will eventually happen for the Christy family and all their friends!

Did you hear? The first book in the series, The Fruitcake Challenge, an Amazon bestselling Christian Historical Romance (hitting #1 spot December, 2014) is a Selah finalist. The winner will be announced in two weeks at the Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers' Conference.
