The List

Ashley Barrett moves to California to stay with her cousins for the summer, she's working on her list of 25 things she wants to do before she gets married. Her mother and both of her sisters were married really young and Ashley didn't think that would work for her, so when one of her sisters made a joke about her getting married right away on her eighteenth birthday she sat down and made a list. Theres a bunch of crazy things on her list, things like going skydiving, spending time touring Europe, going to school abroad and getting her master's degree. She's in California working on her goal of learning how to surf board. She meets Matt at the singles ward and figures that she can also get her goal of having a summer romance out of the way at the same time. Matt is an awesome surfer and even gives lessons. She gets her cousin, Dave, to kind of trick Matt into giving her lessons. Meanwhile, all the girls in the singles ward are after Matt. Who wouldn't be, he's cute, super nice and available! But will Ashley be able to follow her own rules and have her heart stay free from being entangled with Matt, or will she fall hard for him, just like a surf wipeout?! This was a really cute romance. I enjoyed reading it, in fact I had a hard time putting it down. I kind of knew how it was going to end up, but I was really excited to see how it got to that point. This was a super clean, fun, happy romance!

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 …
