The Perfect Fit

It's Tuesday again! Our Utah author for this week is Michele Ashman Bell. She's been in the news lately with her Mothers without Borders project. This is the third and from what I've seen online final (:() book of the Butterfly Box Series. I've really loved getting to know fashionista Lauren, Andi the exerciser, Emma, Jocelyn the teacher, Chloe, and their dead best friend from high school, Ava. These girls all went to high school together in St. George several years before the books start. Their friend Ava was in a fatal accident right after graduation as all the friends were on their way to the graduation party. Luckily none of them were in Ava's car that day, but they were in a car right behind her and saw the whole thing happen. Members of the St George police squad didn't believe that Ava's accident was an accident and had reopened the case prior to the beginning of this novel. Right after Ava died, the remaining friends formed the Butterfly girls and they try to get together every year to have a special Butterfly Girls weekend. This book opens with their weekend together in St George. All of the girls were able to be there, except for Emma, who lives in Greece with her new husband. Andi is off to Hawaii to be on a reality show, Finding Mrs. Right, and all of her friends are teasing her about it. Andi never plans on really liking the bachelor on the show, but quickly discovers that she really does like him, but weird things start happening to all the girls, strange e-mails and texts quickly put them on high alert. This was a fun book, a real page turner. I had no idea how it was going to end and I couldn't wait to see how it did. I love this series!

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 …
