About Heavens to Betsy

“A fun-loving, heartfelt, and amusing romantic novel” — American Fiction

“A humorous, fun…read” — Once Upon a Romance

About Earth to Betsy

“Earth to Betsy is a delightful, fun read that kept me on the edge of my seat, or in this case, pew. Betsy touches a part of each one of us — she is so real, so fun, and so willing to go the extra mile for God and the woman who just might end up being her mother-in-law. Both witty and charming, Beth Pattillo is destined to gain a loyal and faithful audience.”
—Debbie Macomber, author of Susannah’s Garden

“All I can say is ‘Thank Heavens for Betsy.’ This refreshing and honest character filled my heart and mind from page one of the first book and left me anticipating book two. Earth to Betsy breezed in like early spring leaving a smile on my face and a feeling of fresh hope. Beth Pattillo is a magnificent story-teller with a pleasant voice and a character I won’t soon forget.”
— Tracey Bateman, author Leave it to Claire and Claire Knows Best, ACFW President

“I love Betsy! She’s funny, flawed, and refreshingly real. In Earth to Betsy I lost track of how many times I laughed out loud as Betsy juggles an impending church move, a mostly absent fiancé, and a steamroller mother-in-law who hijacks her wedding plans into a tacky, low-rent debacle. Two thumbs up!”
— Laura Jensen Walker, author of Dreaming in Technicolor and Reconstructing Natalie

“Betsy’s back! With the same irreverent, self-deprecating humor. Entirely real, entirely honest, and completely endearing. Backed by a choir of secondary characters you probably sit next to at church on Sunday. She shows us that you can’t go far wrong when your heart’s in the right place and you know who you believe in.”
— Siri L. Mitchell, author of Kissing Adrien
