Escape From Zarahemla

This is the sequel to Passage To Zarahemla, a while ago, just out of curiosity I looked up just how long ago, the original was written in 2003. Kerra and her brother Brock are taking missionary discussions and trying to determine how they feel about the Church. Their home life isn't normal and hasn't been for a long time due to their parent's divorce and their father disappearing for several years. Their father has been back just 6 months, but he hasn't been the dad that they knew before he left, and he's not giving them any explanation as to why. Kerra and Brock are having a missionary discussion when he bursts into their small St. George apartment and tells them that they need to go to their aunt and uncle's home. When they arrive they are told that there is a Nephite hidden in the hollow, where the time rift from before is. This Nephite recognizes their father and gives him a message about the destruction of his family, Kerra and Brock are perplexed, because they had no idea that their father had been to the first century A.D. and now has a second family that he was forced to leave there when he traveled home. This is just as well for Kerra, because her sweetheart, Kiddoni, was also from that era and she was forced to watch him fade into the time rift just 6 months ago. I did enjoy this book, it's full of action and adventure, not to mention a really sweet love story. You really need to have read the first one though, and for me it would have helped to have read it more recently than 8 or 9 years ago. I did love how this series and Chris Heimerdinger's popular Tennis Shoes series blended together. I hope that the upcoming Tennis Shoes adventure continues with Brock and Kerra's story so that we are able to determine what happens to them.

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 …
