Foggy with a Chance of Murder

It's Tuesday again, so it's Utah author day, I've enjoyed paying more attention to where the authors of the books I read live, I'm kind of sad this is the last one, but I'll still try to be more diligent about paying attention! This book is by G.G. Vandagriff, I've enjoyed reading her previous books and I looked forward to reading this one too! Chloe is an author of best-selling suspense books. She's visiting her mother, who has become an alcoholic in the few years since her father died in a car accident, but her mother's having a wild party with a lot of her friends and those friends are being a little too friendly for Chloe so she escapes to the ocean. Her peace is broken by a man asking her if she's seen a boy, his son. Unfortunately she hasn't, but she doesn't have to look too far out into the ocean to see what appears to be a black rock, that's bobbing in the waves. Her lifeguard training kicks in and she swims quickly to the boy. It's too late though. Chloe feels terrible for the man and decides that she's going to have to find out who he is and do something for him. She finds out his name is Rob and sends flowers for the funeral. When he is able to track her down, they become friends, but someone seems to want to kill Rob. He can't figure out just why. He doesn't think it has anything to do with his sister Ginger, that seems so crazy. It must be that his cell phone plant has become a target for terrorists, but when Chloe gets dragged into the mess, Rob's not sure he'll ever forgive himself if something happens to her too. This was a fun book, it seemed kind of crazy, but I really enjoyed reading it!

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 …
