Hazzardous Universe

Hap (Frederick Eugene Hazzard) is just a normal boy. He works in his grandfather's magic shop, and his dad is dying slowly from cancer. One day as he's working the front counter in his grandfather's shop a strange looking man comes in and asks for Frederick Eugene Hazzard. Soon Hap and the man figure out that he's looking for Hap's grandfather, the man wants to talk to Grandpa Hazzard alone, but Hap is curious and tries to listen in on their conversation. He hears things that make no sense to him, something about a Pyramid being stolen, before his Grandpa sends him outside to clean up the garbage that is all over in front of the shop. Hap is kind of grumpy to have to be cleaning up the garbage that someone else has thrown all over when Tara, a girl that he knows from school, comes looking for a job. He hurts Tara's feelings and sends her on her way not knowing that his grandfather has seen the whole scene. His Grandpa says that he has to fix things with Tara right then. Hap doesn't want to, but knows that he had better do what Grandpa Hazzard says. He finds Tara in a clearing in the woods and tries to say he's sorry, but he's interrupted by a spaceship that accidentally picks them both up and they're off on a wild adventure through the universe with some humans and also some pretty crazy aliens. This was a fun book, full of adventure and all the crazy mess ups that Hap creates.

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 …
