A Cowboy's Touch

Here's another Denise Hunter book. Abigail is a 25 year old. She's a writer for a magazine, her boss happens to be her mother. Her doctor is her older sister, Regan. But Abigail is working too hard, her sister discovers that she's suffering from hypertension, which could lead eventually to a heart attack, that's what their father died from. So she tells their mother and their mother orders Abigail to take a 3 month vacation from the magazine and go to a tiny little town in Montana to take care of her great Aunt Lucy. Abigail's mother is worried about Aunt Lucy, because she seems to be showing some signs of dementia. She's talking about the "girls" she lives with, even though she lives all alone. Abigail reluctantly agrees to go to Montana and keep an eye on her aunt. When she arrives, she realizes that her aunt lives in the smallest house imaginable and it's filled with dolls that she makes and sells in her little shop. These dolls are her "girls." They are her only company and she talks with them. Abigail gets bored fairly fast and decides to help in her aunt's doll shop in town and that's where she meets Maddy. Maddy is an 11 year old girl, she lives with her widowed father. She has a pink bike, but it appears to have been stolen. So Abigail sets out to help her find it. Along the way she will rediscover her faith, and find love for a man and also for his daughter. But will that love be enough? This was a cute book. I enjoyed the story and that it was a clean 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…

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.

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 …
