And the winner for 2017 is…

Love Remains – by Sarah M. Eden. Although other books on the list wowed me and were well written, with clever plots and vivid characters, Love Remains touched my heart. This is a deeply moving story, and I cried when I read it. Thank you, Sarah Eden!

Thank you to all the authors out there who work so hard to give us such wonderful stories. I look forward to a new year of reading in 2018. Happy writing, and happy reading.
