The Next Door Boys

Leigh is getting pretty tired of all the labels she has that follow her around. Jaron's little sister, the girl who sews, the girl who sings, and worst of all the girl who has cancer. Now, just a few months after her cancer had been diagnosed as being in remission, she just wants to go away and start over. Maybe going to BYU will do that for her, but then again, maybe not. She will still be labeled as Jaron's little sister, because he will be living right next door, and looking in on her a ton, because her parents set a bunch of rules about that. He also has to drive her to school every day. Leigh would rather be a bit more independent, but she knows that she needs to follow her parent's rules for her own health and well being. Her parents would rather she waited a bit to go to school, but it's time for Leigh to be on her own a little bit. Unfortunately, Leigh's body isn't quite as ready for the stress of college as she had hoped it would be. She's frustrated at the speed (or lack thereof) that her body is healing and letting her get on with her life. Still she knows that she needs to be grateful for every minute that she still has left. Then there are the next door boys, her brother Jaron and his friend Brian, a convert, but other than that Leigh really doesn't know much about him. When he becomes just as protective as Jaron, Leigh begins to see him as an older brother and to trust him just as much as her brother. But will Leigh find love in an unexpected place? I really enjoyed reading this book! I was sucked into the story from the very first chapter and I had a really hard time putting it down until I had read every page!

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 …
