Friends and Foes

Philip Jonquil is getting pretty tired of all the roles that he's forced to play. He plays the role of a dandy quite well, even though he's really a spy tracker. He has been tracking spies all over England for 5 long years. He's almost done, as soon as he gets Le Fontaine he will be done. The trouble is that Le Fontaine just keeps slipping through his fingers. He's talking with his partner in a small inn in the English countryside about just this problem when a young woman comes into the room. He's curious about her timing and about exactly what she's heard. He belittles her without intending to, and little does he know how great of an enemy he's made. Sorrel Kendrick is a young woman, she's tired of everyone treating her as though she's an invalid. She has a limp, but please everyone just leave her alone and treat her normally. When Philip belittles her, she is not happy, and even less happy when they are both guests of the same host at an extended Christmas party, and he belittles her again in front of everyone. This means war. They are both determined to come out ahead in their little battle of wills, but will they be able to cooperate when both of their lives depend on it. I have to say that Sarah Eden is one of my very favorite authors. Her characters seem real, her England seems real. I love the setting of these books, Regency England, is just an amazing place and time. I love her stories and how they contain the same characters, I love remembering just how they all fit together. I hope to be able to read many more Sarah Eden 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 …
