Five Great Reads from 2014!

One of my favorite things about being an author is meeting other authors and reading their books! Last year I had the opportunity to read and review some great books. All five of the books listed are written by very talented authors with hearts for the Lord. My list includes both fiction and non-fiction so take a look and see if there’s something you might want to add to your reading list for 2014. Enjoy!
