Lucky Change

This was a fun book! Karen's an older single mom, she's worked at Smith's forever, she's got two grown kids and a cute granddaughter. One day, she goes to visit her Bishop to confess her sins, his first thought is that she's pregnant. But then she tries to hand him a tithing check with an awful lot of zeros on it, and he realizes that the terrible thing that she had done was buying a lottery ticket and she won! Her Bishop, Rex, happens to be an attorney so he tells her that she needs to keep quite about the fact that she won and come to see him at his law office the next day. Little does he know that for him, the fun has just begun. Karen had been the ward service project for the whole time her family had been in the ward, and she had kind of a grating personality so there was a lot of making fun of her behind her back going on in the ward. She realized that it was going on, but when she had more money than they all did she didn't try to get revenge, although her kids Austin and Delia wanted to! She wanted to create her own charitable foundation with her money, so she came up with a name to operate under Ann O Nymous, so cute! I was amazed by the things that she came up with to do for others, she created businesses that worked, simply to give people jobs. She bought the home of some people in the ward, who needed to sell because their daughter had cancer and they couldn't afford the treatments and the home, at full price just because they needed the money. This was really a sweet book about what one woman tried to do to make a difference just because she could.

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 …
