"Paige Rewritten" by Erynn Mangum

About this book:

  “Paige Alder is in a really good place. She’s dating nice guy Tyler. Her boss has offered her a raise. Her walk with God is strong. Life is great—and that’s when things start to change.
  First, the youth pastor at church keeps asking Paige to work with him full-time. Then her sister shows up newly engaged and wanting to reconnect, even though they haven’t spoken in years.

How does Erynn Mangum do it?! Yet another great novel! Very funny and lots of Spiritual Content—that ending though! I’m so glad I have the next book, because cliffhanger!
