Finding Faith

This is a book that my awesome Mother-In-Law said that I should read. She said that it was really good, and that it said on the back that if you like Nicholas Sparks, you'll like Denise Hunter. She was right on both counts. I already put the rest of the books that Denise Hunter's written on hold at the library, and I can't wait to read them! Paula is a television reporter, she and her husband David live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but Paula's been given the chance to work for a news station in Chicago. She and David aren't on the best of terms relationship wise right now, so it makes sense to Paula to go to Chicago to see if she thinks it will work for her. Little does she know that one of the very first stories that she'll be asked to work on will be at the very hospital where something traumatic happened to her. Unfortunately, we don't find out what that was until later in the book, and I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, so I'm not going to say what it was. But it is kind of the key to her relationship with her husband. Anyway, meanwhile, Linn, who is the biological mother of Paula's sisters adopted daughter (crazy relationship info!), is also in Boston going to school. She's not having a good week. She lost the job that she had lined up, she gets lost on her way back to her apartment, and then she finds out that her roommate has gotten into the dorm rooms and will be leaving her to pay the full rent amount. Will Linn be able to find a job and move on after the mistakes she's made in her life??!! I really enjoyed this book. I can't wait to read more!

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 …
