Blackberry Crumble

This is one of the culinary mysteries by Josi Kilpack, these books are so much fun! One of my favorite features of them is the recipes, they all sound so yummy. I really like that you can get a pdf file of them for free from her website! I also like that you get to read an excerpt from her next book to come out and I really like that the next book is supposed to come out in the fall. And, of course, I liked the story. Sadie is a 50 something year-old who has a talent for having murders dumped into her lap and being able to solve them. She's setting up for a luncheon with her boyfriend Pete when another murder is dropped into her lap by a woman named May, but she loses May's contact information when Pete dumps a bowlful of punch all over the table and of course the newspaper where May's phone number was. This newspaper had an article about Sadie, that she really begins to wonder about when everyone that she runs into won't look her in the eye and all of her friends seem to be gossiping about her. Pete brings her a copy, but he won't look her in the eye either and he seems to be mad at her. This article that an acquaintance named Jane wrote is not at all complimentary to Sadie, in fact, it accuses her of being a murderess herself. No wonder everyone is gossiping about her. This was a fun book, having just been to Portland, where Sadie ends up helping May, made the book even better for me. It's always fun to see whodunit with Sadie and to see what she's been eating!

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 …
