Hourglass

17 year-old Emerson Cole sees things that no one else can. Like the Scarlett O'Hara look-a-like standing in front of her front door as she tries to enter. It was for this reason that she was committed to a mental hospital and put on medication. The medication helped to get rid of the visions, but it made her feel as though she wasn't herself. Now she's living with her brother Thomas and his wife Dru, and she's stopped taking her meds, but they don't know that. Thomas has tried a series of things to help Emerson, but each was just more crazy than the last. The latest one being Hourglass. Emerson isn't quite sure just what that one will be, but she doesn't have much hope for it. Then she meets Michael. Michael who doesn't think she's crazy or broken for seeing visions, and he can even see them himself. Not to mention he's really hot and he and Emerson just have this...chemistry. But can she trust him enough to do what they will need to do together? I enjoyed this story, I thought that it was really original. Emerson has quite a sassy attitude. I thought that she changed through the story, as she kind of got to "know" herself and ability. I didn't love the language, it seemed as though there was quite a lot of it, mostly farmer language. All and all a good story though!

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 …
