The Road Show

This book is small, almost deceptively so, there's only 118 pages, but it packs a very beautiful story of love and redemption into such a small amount of pages. This book is about 5 members of a ward, they all have problems. There's the college student about to get kicked out of his program because his masters project was terrible, but it was terrible because most of his time is spent on the pornography habit that he wants to kick, but isn't sure how to. The mother of 2 young children who feels tired all the time and can't seem to deal with her life. The Elder's Quorum president who can't see why so many people are always needing help, he wonders why they can't just do things on their own. The young man who doesn't fell as if he fits in, he's got long hair and he's, gasp, a democrat! Then there's the older woman with fibromyalgia who has a hard time even walking. The young man with the pornography program is called to be the director of the year's road show, but of course, Satan spends a lot of time telling him how unworthy he is for anything. He's not sure just how he's going to do the job when he feels so unworthy, but he's willing to try, is everyone else willing to give him a chance. I really liked this book, the ending was especially beautiful. I liked how you can see a little piece of yourself in at least one of the characters and when you see how they grow, it gives you hope that you can too!

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 …
