Garden Plot

Erin Kilpatrick runs a rehab center for those people who have struggled with substance abuse. The center is in an old convent and she and her daughter Jennie live in a home on the same property. One morning as she's on her way from home to the center she stumbles across a body in her garden. It appears to be on of the guests of the center. Pretty soon the police are over running both her garden and the rehab center searching for clues as to who could have killed this guest and dumped them into Erin's bean plants. Could it have been one of the guests? Jason freely admits to a bit of a violent past, something that his police record confirms, but he's just a giant teddy bear, isn't he? As Erin and police officer Liam Harris search for the answers together they both begin to feel an attraction to the other. Things get a bit crazy when trying to balance caring for her guest, her daughter, her home renovations, and her visiting teacher's dog after the visiting teacher has a heart attack, all while trying to solve a murder. I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought that it did a good job of portraying both the Church and visiting teaching, there was just enough romance to keep it fun and interesting, and I wasn't able to figure out the mystery by myself. Sometimes the mysteries are way to easy to figure out and you know whodunit from the first page. Sometimes it's okay to kind of work through and see how everything happened, but I think it's better to be kept guessing the whole book, that's how this book was for me.

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 …
