Don't Stop Now

"I did it" was all the message from Penny said. She called Lillian at 4:30 am and left that very crazy message. Lillian's not quite sure that she understands what Penny has done, although she does remember having a conversation with Penny about doing something. Lillian goes to meet her best friend, Josh, who she's been half in love with forever, but he's never noticed and they talk for a bit, which helps Lillian remember a little bit of what Penny could have been talking about. She vaguely remembers that Penny said something about faking her own kidnapping. But who would do something so crazy? It seems as though Penny would, because pretty soon she calls Lillian from the airport and tells her not to tell anyone where she's going. Then everyone starts calling Lillian: both of Penny's parents, the police and even the FBI. Lillian and Josh decide that the only thing they can do is to follow Penny and determine where she's ended up. So they start their cross-country adventure together. Will they be able to find Penny? Will Josh realize how much Lillian cares about him? I honestly didn't love this book. I thought the story line about kidnapping yourself was amusing, but the rest was just okay. I kind of enjoyed the places that Lillian and Josh went on their adventure, but I hated the language they used and the hooking up parts all through the book were annoying. I wished that I had followed my first instinct and stopped reading this book in the first chapter!

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 …
