I love to read books that seem scary and that you are constantly trying to figure out who did it. Clair Poulson is one of my favorites. This book starts when Aubree Lansing is 8, she's playing in her parents walk in closet when she hears arguing and a few minutes later a gunshot. She waits for a little bit to make sure that everyone who was arguing had left before she ventures over to peek out. When she does she's terrified. Her father is standing over what appears to be a dead body, he's got blood on his hands and he's holding a gun. Of course, Aubree has to testify at her father's trial and what she saw is condemning enough that her father is sentenced to go to jail. 10 years later we find an 18 year old Aubree living a privileged life. Her mom's a wealthy model and her step-father a renowned lawyer. They live in a big fancy mansion with lots of servants to help them do things. They are about to embark on a cruise as a family, when with no warning Aubree's father, Stone, is released from jail. Aubree is terrified because she's been told by her step-father that her father will be out for revenge against her for testifying. They have a close call when he comes to their house, but are able to get off for their cruise with just a few problems. Neither parent is able to come, so Aubree has to take her younger twin siblings, Ryan and Brandi, with her mom scheduled to meet up with them as they leave on the cruise. That is when the craziness starts for Aubree.This book has tons of twists and turns, it was a fun read with a bit of romance thrown in a long the way!

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 …
