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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it'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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church.

In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels. Discover the powerful experiences of twelve of the earliest sister missionaries, from the first single proselytizing women in 1898 to some of the well-known sisters in Church history who were themselves pioneering missionaries.
