Montana Summer

Shelby Hamilton is so happy, she's just gotten engaged to the most eligible bachelor at BYU, her roommates are going on and on about her ring and how he's picked the perfect one, but Shelby soon starts to wonder why everything doesn't seem so perfect. She's not sure why she feels concern when Brad, her fiancee, expresses his opinion on the reception and most of all the wedding dress and doesn't seem to take her wants into consideration at all. Soon Brad convinces her to go visit his family in Montana and Shelby ends up having to go by herself, because Brad's internship starts sooner than expected. She's not so sure about going by herself, but she loves Brad's parents and there's just something about his older brother, Cameron. He doesn't seem to really like her, but that could be because she covered him in compost. As she gets to know him better, Shelby realizes that they have a strong connection, she's not sure if it's stronger than the connection she feels to Brad or not. The more time they spend together viewing the Montana countryside the more they fall in love with each other. But is Shelby willing to give up her "perfect" life she's pictured with Brad for true love or not? This was a really cute and fun book. I enjoyed the humorist aspects of the plot. I really liked Shelby's attitude about life and how she changed throughout the book. I could not put this book down!

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 …
