Family by Design

Rena's getting tired of her seemingly never ending "pleasant" dates. She's not sure how she ended up in her 30's and still single. Her only consolation is that her best friend, Tucker, is still searching for the right person too. Rena finds herself comparing the current guy she's dating to Tucker and knows that he could never measure up to him. Tucker is going through some life changes himself, his brother and sister-in-law have just been killed in a car accident, leaving him in charge of his very young niece and nephew. The problem being that child protective services don't feel that he's an adequate guardian being unmarried and in the Marine reserves. Knowing that the only way he will get to care for his family is to get married, he decides to ask Rena to marry him and right away! He knows that both of them are sick of searching for the right person and reasons that they love each other enough for now. Rena is thrown for a loop, but decides to go for it anyway. But neither of them can imagine the challenges that will come into their life because of their crazy decision. I loved this book. I loved Rena, her character was such a strong, wonderful woman. I loved Tucker, I loved their story and how much they both grew throughout all of it. This book sucked me in from the very first page, and I had a really hard time putting it down when I needed to do other things!

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 …
