Love on the Line

Deanne Gist is one of the best Christian romance authors around. Her books are always clean, fun, historically accurate and romantic and this book was no different! Georgie Gail is a telephone switchboard operator in rural Texas. She likes to bird watch and she's built a wonderful backyard garden for just such a purpose. Unfortunately, the lady's fashion at the time is to have parts of dead birds on their clothes and hats. When the local milliner has a contest to see who can bring him the most bird parts she knows she's in trouble! She's also survived a train robbery by the great Frank Comer. Now she thinks that he's a wonderful man and that his great rival of the Texas Rangers, Lucious Landrum is kind of a jerk. Little does she know that Luke Palmer, her new co-worker, is Lucious Landrum undercover and trying to catch the notorious Comer and his gang. Being that they are thrown together a lot, Luke and Georgie start to fall in love. They must overcome her love of saving birds, and his love of hunting birds and also stay out of the way of the Comer gang long enough to really discover their feelings for each other. This was a fun read! I really enjoyed reading this story and learning a little bit about how telephone service worked in it's infancy, I also had no idea that ladies would put dead bird parts on their clothing. This seems a bit yucky to me, but whatever makes them happy I guess!

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 …
