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.

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 …
