The Rogue Shop

Chris is a Texas boy, he's graduated from high school and decided to attend the school that's farthest away from where he's grown up and also offers him a scholarship. This happens to be the University of Utah, located in Salt Lake City, much to the chagrin of his aunt whose raised him since his own parents died in a car accident when he was three years old. Since his family's never been well off, Chris takes a Greyhound bus from Texas to Utah. On his way he decides that he needs to call his aunt to tell her that he's sorry that he's gone so far away. He calls from Denver and she makes him swear on the Bible that he will never become a Mormon, which he happily does, because why would he ever become a Mormon?? Life on his own is not quite what Chris imagined it would be. He loses $1400 dollars of money that he's saved up within the first 24 hours of being in Salt Lake and has to scramble to come up with a job so that he can rent an apartment. He tries some places in the mall, but who wants to wear crazy pink furry ears while they're working? Next he tries Stanley Park's Regal Formalwear, a tuxedo shop, where he's hired for not much money, but every little bit helps. He gets the apartment that he wants and discovers that the cute girls that live across the hall are both Mormon, and very nice, they pretty much make sure he eats for the first while that he lives there, but can he get to know them and not turn into a Mormon??!!! This was a cute book, I enjoyed getting to know the characters, I hope that there will be more books about them!

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 …
