Her Good Name

This is one of Josi Kilpack's older books. I won it from a website a few years ago, so I was able to actually have it autographed, this wasn't the first time I've read it, but I don't have any new books to read write now. I was able to read the whole book today, so it's pretty easy reading and also very entertaining. Josi Kilpack also writes the Sadie Hoffmiller series, she's one of my very favorite authors. Chrissy is a single 35 year old Mexican girl. She's been on so many blind dates that she's written a page with her stats on it so that she doesn't have to repeat herself so many times. She's been set up on a date with Micah by her friend Amanda. She's not really expecting much, so she's surprised by his wit and seeming acceptance of the woman that she is. The only problem is that their dinner date only lasts twenty minutes due to Chrissy's needing to pick up her niece Rosa early from Young Women's. Feeling bad, Chrissy pays for her own dinner and that's where all her bad luck starts. She just doesn't know it yet. Chrissy's identity is stolen by the girl who rings up her dinner and life will go from pretty bad to really bad very quickly. I really enjoy this book. I enjoy Chrissy's attitude and her love of color in the world around her. I enjoy the touch of romance the book has and though very sad, I do enjoy the showing of how identity theft works in the world right now.

My schedule and life are going to be changing just a bit, so at least for awhile I will probably only be posting on my blog 2 to 3 times a week. I am going to try to post Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

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 …
