    I hardly read anything in December. Here’s what I did read. Books Read In December

    Currently I’m listening to an audio version of Siri Mitchell’s, Love Comes Calling. I’m reading a paperback of Sarah Sundin’s, In Perfect Time. Next is Recipe for Love, a Heartsong Presents novel by Brandy Bruce.
