Disney At Dawn

Finn, Charlene, Philby, Willa, Maybeck, Jez and Amanda are back as the Kingdom Keepers in the second book in the series. Actually Jez and Amanda aren't Kingdom Keepers, they always seem to be able to help with whatever the Keepers need though! The Kingdom Keepers have been invited to the Magic Kingdom in celebration of their holographic hosts programing being fixed. They are to be included in the big parade with their DHI's leading the way. But it looks like a big storm is coming up and then Finn and the other Keepers spot Amanda and Jez who appear to be trying to warn them about something going wrong in Cinderella Castle. But what? Finn and Philby check it out and stumble upon Maleficent's prison in the upper apartment of Cinderella Castle. But she's able to channel the lightning from the big storm so that she can escape. She uses Tink's zip line across the park and escapes into the Animal Kingdom. Of course, it's really not a good idea to give Maleficent unlimited access to the animals and Disney happens to be experimenting with animal DHI's at the same time. Not a good combination! So the Keepers are called out by Wayne to stop her, and when Jez disappears again, they know they must act quickly. I liked this book more than the first one, maybe because it seemed more real, or I knew the characters better. This is an action packed book that anyone fascinated with Disney parks will enjoy.

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 …
