Christy's a normal 15 year old, she just wants to fit in with her friends. So when the kids that she's on a school trip to Washington, DC with decide to sneak out of their hotel in the middle of the night, she's in. Only she isn't so sure about the creepy hotel that the rest of the kids are thinking about going in to use the bathroom. She has a really bad feeling feeling about going in, her feet don't want to move. But a couple of her friends come and get her, and feeling accepted Christy decides that if everyone else is okay, she will be too. The hotel is just as creepy on the inside as it is on the outside and as soon as Christy sees an execution style murder, she knows that they should not have gone in, and she's uncertain just how they will be able to get out without being seen by the murderers. They get away and are OK, but Christy feels as though they are now being watched. So, Christy and her friends decide that they need to let someone know about the murder and are able to get some notes to the FBI, and soon not only are they being watched by the killers, they are also being watched by the FBI. But will telling the FBI get them all killed? I really enjoyed this book, it's pretty creepy, but I like that it's a good, clean book that keeps you engaged in the plot. I also realized after visiting Cindy M Hogan's blog that it's part of a series. And I happened to run into her at one of those Costco signings today and she mentioned to me that the second book will be out in March. I can't wait to read more about what happens to Christy and her friends!

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 …
