Smoke Screen

I don't know what happened to this week, it's just gone! I intended to read a few more books this week, but I think everyone around me just keeps changing my schedule to suit themselves! I spent the first part of the week rereading The Broken Road, I loved it just as much the second time, definitely worth reading! Then I read this book Tuesday and yesterday, but I didn't have two minutes to do anything about getting it photoed and uploaded. So, here it is. These books are awesome, they are all about the Saint squad of Navy Seals. Each of the guys in the Saint squad has a story or two about their lives that are kind of the focus of these books. This book happens to be about Quinn. He has an issue that only one other person really knows about, Quinn was married and his wife, Emily, died not very long after he was married. Only his friend Tristan knows about it and that's only because Tristan and Quinn grew up treated as brothers. Anyway, Tristan's sister-in-law Taylor and Quinn have gone out a few times and Taylor thought that he liked her and that they were going to date, but he got scared and kind of walked away, while she was painting in Europe. She's in Paris doing some paintings and strange things start happening. Someone appears to have died in her hotel room, and she feels as though some one is watching her. It scares her enough that she moves back to Virginia without telling anyone, even her sister Riley. She just kind of shows up at Riley and Tristan's apartment one day. When her new SUV gets broken into within just hours of her showing up in Virginia, Quinn knows she has a problem and then all kinds of scary things start happening and Taylor's not allowed to be by herself even for a few minutes. I really enjoyed this book, it has love, suspense, and mystery, all my favorite things!

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 …
