Devil's Food Cake

This is the last of Josi Kilpack's Culinary mysteries for me to re-read. :( I love these books! Sadie Hoffmiller is in charge of dinner for a library event. They are having a former resident of their town, Thom Mortensen, speak about the book that he wrote just before he moved. Thom had kind of an unfortunate life experience, his wife died and then his son killed the girl that he took to prom and then himself. So, naturally, everyone in Garrison wants to come hear him speak. But Thom is running late, everyone's already had dinner and are working on dessert, a great Devil's Food Cake that Sadie made, by the time he arrives for his speech. His publisher, Mark is starting to introduce him, but there is a problem with the wireless microphone and the wired microphone is set way too tall, when all of a sudden there's a very loud noise and Mark is lying on the floor in a puddle of his own blood. Luckily, the man Sadie's dating, Pete Cunningham, just happens to be Sadie's date and he's there to take care of things as soon as Mark is killed. But will Sadie ever learn to keep her nose out of every one else's business or will she get herself into just as much trouble as she has with previous murders? This is a way fun book. Sadie gets herself into the craziest situations simply by being a busy body! I love the recipes in here! I would love to try the Devil's Food Cake and the frosting recipe.

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 …
