The Counterfeit Convert

Tristan is an unemployed advertising executive, he lives in New York with his two best friends, Cole and Austin. They are all kind of down on their luck, but Tristan decides that they need a nice dinner to help them feel better and he's more than willing to put it on his credit card. At the restaurant, he literally runs into Rachel McMillan, she's not very nice to him because she can tell that he's kind of a womanizer, but a waiter tells him her name and her situation. Her father was a wealthy businessman who left things to his three daughters in his will, but there is a stipulation. His daughter's must be married by the time they turn 25 or else they don't get even one penny of money. Tristan sees Rachel as his way to get out of poverty, he decides then and there that he is going to be the one to marry her. The only problem is that she and her sisters are Mormons and he, Austin and Cole don't know anything at all about Mormons. Tristan tells her that he and his friends are Mormons so that they can see Rachel and her two sisters again, and then he has to learn about Mormons really fast. He buys one of those Dummy books called Mormonism for dummies. He only starts going to church so that he can be close to Rachel, but soon he can't tell if there's more than one reason that he goes, could the womanizer Tristan really change and be a Mormon? I started out not really liking this book, Tristan was such a jerk at the beginning that he really annoyed me. I stuck it out and by the end I really liked Tristan. This was a fun book, with several funny Mormon's only jokes!

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 …
