Sweet Cherry Ray

Cherry is a romantic young lady, she likes to read her Oklahoma Jenny books and dream about falling in love with a hero of her own. She lives in a small town, Blue Water, where everybody knows everybody, including the town outlaw, Black Jack Haley and his gang. Cherry's pa is retired Texas Ranger Arthur Ray. His wife was shot when Cherry was just a baby by an outlaw. Arthur can't stand the thought of one of the town outlaws wanting to harm Cherry, so he dresses her up as a young boy, except that's not working as well as he would hope. One day, as Cherry is standing in the street with her father, a stranger comes riding into town. He carries a gun, so the assumption of the towns people is that he's an outlaw looking to either join up with Black Jack or start his own gang. The stranger is handsome, and Cherry can't get her mind off of him. She just has to know whether he's an outlaw or not. So she spies on him, which he catches her at, several times. Each time he drags her back to her Pa to tell him about her spying, Cherry falls more and more in love with the handsome stranger. He couldn't be an outlaw, he just couldn't. Cherry's Pa knows the truth about just what the stranger is, and he knows just how dangerous the situation could be so he warns Cherry to stay away, but Cherry's already fallen in love. Will her love be dangerous to her? I enjoyed the story of this book for the most part. I thought that this one was just a bit...I don't know... hokey maybe. The story didn't drag me in quite as well or as fast as Marcia Lynn McClure's books usually do. I did like it enough to have read the whole thing in one day! This book did have a few mild swear words.


  1. It does sound a little hokey (great word choice) but also fun! Thanks for the review : )

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
