Kissing Cousins

Marcia Lynn McClure is a class all of her own when it comes to LDS fiction. Her books are always very romantic and very clean. Her characters always have interesting names and backgrounds. This book is about Poppy, she's a waitress at a restaurant called Good Ol' Days. She loves her job, she works with her best friend Whitney, the boss, Mr. Dexter is really nice, and the best part is the cook Swaggart Moretti. He's so handsome and she's had a crush on him forever. In fact when she and Whitney were 14 they came up with a list of Dreams to Do and Poppy's number one thing was to make out with Swaggart, but she never felt like that was an attainable goal, so she changed it to simply kissing him. One night a really hot and fashionable man comes into the restaurant and he's seated in Poppy's section, this man is with a very rude woman, she's rude to Poppy and rude about the food. The man is not happy with how she treats Poppy and refuses even to take the woman home. Poppy learns that his name is Mark and he eventually asks her to go on some dates with him, which makes Swaggart jealous, because he's had a crush on Poppy forever too. But will he be too late in showing Poppy how he feels, or can she too learn to love him. This was a super cute book, I always enjoy reading books by this author. I like how she has a list of fun facts in the back about the books, things like recipes, why the names of the characters and more. I can't wait to read more by this author!

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 …
