My Double Life

This is one that I've wanted to read for a little while, I've enjoyed other Janette Rallison books and I knew that I was going to get a clean fun story to read with this one. Alexia is a senior in high school, she lives in West Virginia with her mom and her grandma. Her mom's a single mom and won't tell Alexia who her father is, yet! She says that she will tell her after she graduates from high school, but Alexia has never felt completely whole. Alexia is a little awkward around boys she likes and lives a completely normal teenage life, that is until she ticks of her enemy, Theresa, by asking out the boy Theresa likes to the Sadie Hawkins dance. He turns her down eventually, but that isn't enough for Theresa. Alexia finds that Theresa has posted a picture of her on the internet. The one thing about that picture is that Alexia is a dead wringer for mega rock star, Kari Kingsley, whose agent happens to see the picture and comes up with a brilliant plan for Alexia to "become" Kari so that Kari can get her next record done, instead of having to make all kinds of celebrity appearances. Alexia wants to do it, but her mom says no, so she tries to tell that to Kari and her agent Maren, but in the process she discovers that her dad and Kari's dad are the same, so she knows that this is her chance to meet her dad and live the life that she was meant to live. In the process she discovers herself and falls in love, but will everything work out or will everything all fall apart in the end because of all the lies Lexi tells? This was an awesome plot idea. It was funny, cute and I really loved the end!

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 …
