Disney in Shadow

This is the last Kingdom Keepers book that I will read for at least a little while. I've been enjoying this series, it appears that there are or will be more from the ending of the book. The story hasn't quite ended yet. This book begins with Wayne, the Disney Imagineer (such a fun word!) in charge of the DHI's missing. Finn and the others have been searching everywhere they can think of in the Magic Kingdom and the Animal Kingdom, but they have no leads. At least not until Jess has a vision of Wayne, but he's no longer in the Magic or Animal Kingdoms, now it appears that he's in Epcot. That's an area that none of the Kingdom Keepers have visited recently, because their DHI's are now active in Epcot and they have to have special permission to visit. Meanwhile, the kids are all growing up and Finn has started to realize that he's attracted to Amanda, which may not be workable long term, because she and Jess may be sent back to a former foster home in another state. This is a way fun series, I love the idea of the DHI. I think it would be a super fun thing to run into in Disney World.

FYI if you live near a Barnes and Noble and you have kids in Elementary school, you should stop in and get their summer reading paper. It's supposed to be for grades 1 through 6, although they said our daughter going into Kindergarten was fine to do it (it never hurts to ask!) All they have to do is read 8 books, fill out the paper and take it back and they can get a free book off the list of books offered. Pretty cool!

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 …
