The Broken Road

I LOVED this book! I loved it so much that I started rereading it this morning! I love Shannon Guymon's characters, they are exactly the kind that I love to read about, who seem like they're old friends, and they keep showing up in her books so that you can find out what happens to them! Allison has moved back to Alpine to take care of her younger brother and sister, but Allison has no friends in Alpine. You see, she moved there because she figured it would be the last place on earth their dad would look for them. He committed a huge scam in Alpine 5 years ago, and everyone there hates him, because he took their money and ran away to Texas with it. They hate Allison, her brother Talon, and her sister Aspen too, but Allison figures that it's better to be hated and not have any friends than it is to risk being found somewhere else by their father. Allison hadn't realized just how bad it would be, though she does on the first day of school when Talon gets yelled at by a guy he's never met before. Things seem to be looking up when she's able to convince a girl from high school that she's never hated her and didn't mean to hurt her feelings, and then she runs into Will Carson, the boy that she was in love with in high school and realizes that hurt feelings run deep, even when you were trying to protect the people that you loved. This book is funny, sweet, romantic and just awesome!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
