TODAY’S ANGEL by Kim Pritekel

At I Heart Lesfic, we believe the world could use a bit more kindness after one of the hardest and longest of years. Many authors have signed up to help IHL spread kindness in the world.

Today, the wonderful Kim Pritekel is here to share a story. Also, Kim is giving away 1 ecopy of Finding Faith. Below the guest post, you’ll find more details about the giveaway.

Take it away, Kim.

TODAY’S ANGEL

About six years ago, I was walking to the store, which was in a small strip mall. At one end was a used bookstore, and I saw an older woman, easily in her seventies or eighties, trying to pull about four tied grocery sacks full of books out of the backseat of her car.

I was about to walk by her, figured best to mind my own business, when something told me to stop. So, I doubled back and walked up to this woman, who was fairly skittish, and asked if I could help her. She said yes, so I grabbed all four bags of books and loaded myself up.

She led the way to the used bookstore, pulling the door open for me. I unloaded the bags on the counter inside and was about to leave when the old woman stopped me. She said words to me that I never forgot, and use, myself now:

“Everyday I look for an angel in my day. Today you were that angel.”

We can all be somebody’s angel every single day.

FINDING FAITH

by Kim Pritekel

Faith Fitzgerald thought that if she got an education and became a high-powered attorney in Manhattan, maybe—just maybe—she’d gain the attention and respect of her absentee father. Considering he was the only parent she had left after her mother’s suicide when Faith was just a child, she thought that’s what it would take.

She was wrong.

What she dreamed would be glamorous and satisfying turned out to be grueling and thankless. Since she wasn’t willing to play the game between the sheets, she was forced to stay in the cubicle jungle doing all the heavy lifting while the men got the credit and the rewards.

Deciding she is done, Faith packs up and, with the flip of the bird to the rearview mirror, leaves New York and heads home to Colorado. She has nothing there: no job, nowhere to live, no relationship with her father. Truth is, she barely has a relationship with herself.

On the drive home, she finds herself in Wynter, a tiny mountain town at the foot of the Rockies. Looking more like it belongs in a made-for-TV Christmas movie than on the map, Faith is utterly enchanted. When she tries her luck and buys a raffle ticket at Pop’s, Wynter’s charming café, her prize is far more than meets the eye—or the heart.

Enter Wyatt, a feisty, sexy southerner and waitress at Pop’s, who just happens to be married to a local sheriff’s deputy. All is not as it appears with the All-American boy and his Georgia peach.

A colorful cast of unforgettable and charming characters will teach the jaded attorney that sometimes to find yourself all you have to do is go back to the basics…and have a little Faith.

    I’ve read 30+ stories from KP over the years, but not this one.

    Not sure which is better. To be the angel for someone else, or to have someone else be the angel for you 🙂

    Thank you Ms. Pritekel for that post. Sometimes the smallest kindness results in lasting inspiration changing your mindset forever. Your books have given me many hours of reading pleasure over the years and I’m happy to see a new one after quite some time.
