What Happened to Goodbye

McClean Sweet is a senior in high school, she thought her life was perfect until 2 years ago, when her mom cheated on her dad with the coach of her dad's favorite college basketball team and her family's restaurant closed down forever. Now she lives with her dad and travels with him, he's a consultant for a restaurant company. He's in charge of making new restaurants bought by the company profitable or closing down restaurants that aren't profitable. They've lived in 3 towns in the last couple of years and are just moving into their 4th town as the story starts. McClean is having a hard time finding herself, so in each new town she becomes a new and different person. It's not just the name, Beth Sweet, Lizbet Sweet, Eliza Sweet, it's a whole different personality including likes and dislikes, she's happy to be able to move each time and start all over with a new name, personality, and friends. She doesn't really get to close to anyone, because she knows she's just going to be moving again anyway. But this new move is different, she's chosen a new name, Liz Sweet, and is going about making up her personality, when she accidentally tells her neighbor and boy next door, Dave, her real name which makes it almost impossible to become someone else, but is McClean ready to just be herself and let people know the real her. She must face up to who she really is and discover just what happened to goodbye. I really liked the story of this book. The language wasn't the greatest, it wasn't really disgusting or I wouldn't have finished this book. I really wish all the New York Times bestselling author's didn't think they needed to have language in their books. It's kind of like the PG movie that they figure no one will go see, so they add in language enough to make it PG-13 and think more people will go see it!

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 …
