If I Should Die

Jennie Hansen is one of my favorite LDS authors. She writes some really fun and creepy mysteries. I love the picture on the front of this book. Kallene and her friend Linda love to run, they run together most mornings in their upscale neighborhood in Salt Lake, they love to run in the canyon. One morning Linda confides in Kallene that she's going to divorce her husband,
Carson. Carson married Linda after her twin, Louise, was killed in a car accident and they have an 18 month old daughter Macie. The next morning Kallene gets up a little late, and hurries to get ready to run, worried about what Carson would have said to Linda's announcement, but Linda never arrives. Kallene gets worried and goes to Linda's house to see if everything is okay, but a very annoyed Carson answers the door and dumps Macie into her arms, thinking that Linda is with her and will be along soon. A couple of days go by with Kallene trying to convince Carson to call the police, because no way would Linda walk away and leave Macie behind, but when he won't call the police or Linda's family, she finally decides that she needs to do it herself. This was a good book. I really enjoyed the story line, although, to me it was eerily similar to a real life case that happened in Salt Lake with Susan Powell. They still haven't been able to find out what happened to her.

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 …
