Saving Grace

Yeah! Another Denise Hunter book. This book is mainly about Natalie, but of course there are little subplots about other people too. Natalie is a single mom trying to do the best she can after her husband, Keith left her for another woman. She works at a center that helps young girls to make the decision about whether to have their baby or to abort their baby. One day she meets Linn, she's a young girl who's pregnant and know that her dad will kick her out of his house as soon as he finds out and she has a great college scholarship starting in the fall, so abortion seems like the only way to her. Natalie tries to show Linn not only that her baby is a little person not just some tissue, but also that Linn is of worth to a loving Heavenly Father. But decisions will not come easily to either of them, they both will have some tough times, but will they be able to come through them stronger and more forgiving than they started out? This book is book 2 of the New Heights series, I've already read books one and three, so reading this made book 3 make a little more sense. I do like how these books stand on their own, as well as going in a series, so you're not completely lost if you start on say book 3 like I did. I enjoyed this book. I thought that the plot and the characters seemed believable.

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 …
