Carol Higgins Clark writes suspense stories, sort of like her mom Mary Higgins Clark does. All of CHC's books have the same central character PI Regan Reilly, and also her family, her husband Jack and her mom and dad Luke and Nora Reilly. In this book Regan and her husband Jack are getting ready to go visit Nora and Luke for Nora's birthday. Regan gets a call from Nora telling her to come right away. Nora's friend Karen has called Nora to tell Nora that Karen's mom, Edna, is selling her home and having a yard sale to clear things out of it. Karen's devastated, she lives in San Diego and can't get to the Jersey Shore very quickly to make sure that her mom isn't selling any of her precious things. Nora assures Karen that she'll take care of it and asks Regan to go with her. A movie star, Cleo Paradise, had stayed in Edna's home just the week before and had left some very interesting things: a few clothes and personal items and a trunk full of ceramic skulls. Edna decides that the logical thing to do with Cleo's things is to sell them at her yard sale and advertise that Cleo's things will be there for sale. She knows exactly what will happen when her sale starts, pandemonium! This was a fun book with several sub plots. I didn't see the ending coming the way it did. I really enjoyed 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 …
