Flashback Week: The Convenient Groom

This was probably my very favorite Christian fiction book that I read this last year. So funny, so romantic and the ending was awesome too! Can't wait for more like this!

This is the last of the Denise Hunter books for at least a little while (I can't remember if I have anymore or not!) Kate is the main character in this book. She's a relationship specialist, she's also very schedule oriented, she counsels couples with marriage difficulties, she has a new book coming out Finding Mr Right-For-You all about how to find the perfect marriage partner, and she's getting married to her own Mr Right, Bryan, in about 4 hours. But she discovers that he hasn't picked up his tux on time so she calls to make sure that everything is all right and that's when he tells her that he's not going to marry her. Kate is devastated, not only was she in love with him, but her wedding complete with surprise groom is scheduled to coincide with the release of her book. She's in her landlord, Lucas Wright's shop when she was talking to Bryan and he practically insists that she let him stand in for Bryan. She's so devastated and doesn't know what else to do, so she agrees. Little does she know that even though the whole thing is a sham for her, for Lucas, who's been in love with her for months, the whole thing is very real. She thinks she loves Bryan, but there's just something about Lucas, even though he's all wrong for her, or so she thinks! This was a fun book, some of the situations Kate gets herself into are so funny! I loved 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 …
