Bumpy Landings

I really enjoy reading this kind of book, it's a romance but it's written by a guy from the perspective of a guy. I always find it fun to see things from the opposite perspective. Jordan has returned from his mission in Oregon to his home in Hawaii, he's not a native of Hawaii, but his Mom teaches college at BYU Hawaii. His mom got him a job at a flower shop and Jordan never dreamed that that would allow him to meet the woman of his dreams, the only problem is that she is a native Hawaiian and he knows that his mom will never go for that. He also knows that his mom will be furious when she finds out that he started flying lessons while living with his dad the summer his dad died and that he wants to be able to finish the lessons and become a pilot. One day he's asked by a co-worker to pick up her Auntie Kehau at the airport, so he goes thinking that he's going to be picking up an older lady, imagine his surprise when "Auntie Kehau" ends up being a really cute BYU co-ed. He takes her to a movie that very same night and his mom hears about it through the grapevine and is furious that he's dating a native Hawaiian. But will things work out for them anyway, or will another man steal away the girl of his dreams? This was a fun book, I really enjoyed the story!

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 …
