Voice Across Time

Abby is a successful real estate agent living in Colorado, her grandmother who lived in St. George has just died and Abby is going to her house to go through the things that were left behind. The only problem is her boyfriend Scott doesn't want her to go. He tries to get her to agree to marry him instead. Abby loves him, but she's not sure that she's ready to agree to a commitment just yet. She wants to go through her grandmother's things first and then decide about Scott. Going through her grandparent's things is just as hard as Abby knew it was going to be. It does help that her grandma's next door neighbor, Mrs. Givens is there. She brings Abby dinner the first night she's there and even gets Abby to go back to Church with her on Sunday. Abby's family were active in the LDS Church when Abby was young, but they haven't gone to Church in a long time. Going to Church awakens a long dormant spiritual need in Abby that she'd like to examine. Scott on the other hand, plainly tells Abby that he wants nothing to do with anything spiritual in his life right then. But when Abby runs into her childhood crush Blake Matthews, she must make a hard choice. Will she choose love and spirituality with Blake or fun and love with Scott? I really enjoyed reading this book. This book had a story of one of Abby's ancestors right alongside Abby's story and I really enjoyed that. I thought that it was a really sweet funny romance. And it was completely clean!

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 …
