The Outer Edge of Heaven

Charlie Evans is just about ready to graduate from BYU in preparation to attend law school there. Her parents have always wanted her to be a lawyer, she hasn't, but she's basically following her parents' path for her. She's also gotten her Bachelor's in Education, she would love to be a teacher, what they don't know can't hurt them...right? With summer rapidly approaching, Charlie knows that she can't spend a whole summer in her childhood home with them, she would go nuts. She allows her best friend, Fo, to talk her into coming with him to his uncle's cattle ranch in Montana as a hired helper. She goes, expecting to help with the cattle or maybe the garden. Her name though, has led everyone to believe that she was a man, and no one has planned for a girl. Fo's cousin, Luke, decides that maybe the best thing for her would be to work as kind of a nanny to his step-brothers and step-sisters. His stepmother is very busy in her job as a flight attendant and too busy with other men to care. His father is very busy with ranch business and that leaves the little girls and boy with a lot of time to get into trouble. Charlie is a beautiful girl and that attracts Luke, but it also attracts a stalker. Will Charlie, Luke and Fo be able to keep one step ahead of the stalker, or will it cost someone their life? I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a great escape for me after a stressful week. I loved the characters, Charlie starts of as a bit of a meek girl, who lets her parents push her around, but by the end of the story, she learns that she will have to stand up for herself to get what she wants. I loved the humor in this book. Click here to read a review of another of Jaclyn M. Hawkes' books.

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 …
