Shades of Grey

This was a good book, I read it in just a couple of hours as a sick child was sleeping in the other day. This is the 2nd book about Autumn Rain, the first book is Imprints. I would probably do my best to read them in order, it seems like it refers to what has happened before a goodly amount! Autumn has a special ability, psychometry, basically when she touches other people's things, she receives an imprint of what they were feeling when the held that thing. She can kind of "see" what was going on with that person. There are a few rules. The thing must be something the person held a lot. Clothes and anything that gets cleaned regularly don't work. Autumn is a bit of an individual, she doesn't eat processed foods, or white flour, and she likes to wander around barefoot. She owns a little antiques shop, because she likes the feelings she gets when she's around really old things. She has a twin sister Tawnia, who's pregnant, and a boyfriend named Jake who owns the herb store right next to her little shop. One day Tawnia has her neighbor Sophie come to see Autumn. Sophie's husband has disappeared with no warning. Tawnia is sure that something must have happened to him. Sophie brings some things for Autumn to "read." Autumn can see that Dennis left of his own will, but she's unsure why. Tawnia too has a gift, she draws things sometimes that seem to come out on their own, but the end up being what's happened to someone in the recent past. When Tawnia shows Autumn the picture she's drawn, Autumn knows that she has to go see Shannon, her reluctant police contact. This starts a crazy adventure to find out what's happened to Dennis and why. This was a fast paced, enjoyable book to read. I can't wait to read more Autumn Rain adventures!

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 …
