    I was new to this reviewing thing this year and I feel like I am still getting the hang of things but I have LOVED every minute of it and look forward to 2014! Thank you Heather for the opportunity! And my personal goal this year is to get better at posting reviews on Amazon!! I have made a lot of new author friends this year and they have helped me see what a difference our opinions make in places like Amazon or Goodreads. I challenge ALL readers to make a difference for their favorite authors!! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014!!

    Toni Aleo – Taking Shots
    Cindy Gerard – The Way Home
    Raeanne Thayne – Christmas in Snowflake Canyon
    Susan Wiggs – Candlelight Christmas
