The Fourth Nephite

This book is one that I've had on hold at the library FOREVER! I'm glad it was worth the wait. Kaleo is a junior in high school, popular, on the football team. It seems as though he has everything going for him. The one thing that he's not sure of is his Testimony of the Church. He goes through the motions of attending Church and Seminary, but that's all it is. He doesn't read his scriptures, he figures that Joseph Smith just wrote them himself. One day, he's pressured to attend a "party." A big guy on the football team tricks him into hiding out beneath the bleachers with some cheerleaders and some beer. His Seminary teacher finds him there with a cheerleader on his lap and a beer in his hands. Even though he hadn't had any beer, his seminary teacher thinks the worst and who could blame him? Sometimes pictures speak louder than words. Kaleo is terrified that his Seminary teacher is going to turn him in to both his mom and his football coach and that he won't be able to play at the next day's championship football game. It's important for him to play, because there are college scouts coming to watch him play. In order to talk his teacher out of telling on him, Kaleo has to promise to go to Salt Lake City and meet with a guy named Laden. After weighing his options Kaleo decides to go visit Laden. What he finds in what appears to be an antique shop on the streets of downtown SLC will astound and amaze you! I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read and I had to keep reading to find out what would happen next!

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 …
