The Royal Treatment

The Royal Treatment is the second in the Princess for Hire series. I think that it's pretty hilarious that these books are set in a small town in Idaho. That's where I grew up, although, I've never heard of Sproutville, so I'm not sure if it's a real place or not. In this book Desi has started 8th grade, things are going at least OK for her and she's getting ready to try out for her school play, which happens to be Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. And of course, she's trying to complete her BEST (Betterment of Elite Sub Training) for Facade. Her BEST is to help her be more able to handle a specific more cultured princess, it's what a Level 2 sub must do for every new princess that they are going to sub for. Desi's just waiting to finish her BEST for her first job as a Level 2, but she's having a hard time finishing her musical, and speaking requirements. Just as she finishes her magical tryout for her school play, she discovers from her agent Meredith that she's completed her BEST, and it's time for her first job as a Level 2, and an awesome lunch with the director of Facade, Genevieve, but as time goes on Desi's uncertain just what Genevieve's interest in her and her magic is. This was a fun book, I've really enjoyed reading this series so far, I like that it's clean, written for teens and just a fun series. I can't wait to read more of these books!

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 …
