Sadie

Sadie is a young woman in her prime. She has a wealthy foreign boyfriend, her mom is her best friend and she has a decent paying job at a ski resort in Montana. On Christmas Eve, however, she finds out just how unperfect her life really is. The FBI comes to talk to her about spying on her perfect boyfriend. She wouldn't have given another thought to them had he not hit her so hard that she passed out when he found out that they had slipped a listening device in her purse without her consent or knowledge. Seeing the rage in his eyes, Sadie knows that she has to get out of his cabin before he comes after her again. So she breaks out of a window into a terrible snow storm. Knowing death by hypothermia is a real option and coming quick, Sadie climbs into the only shelter that she can find, which happens to be a truck parked next to a cabin. She means to only warm up, but unknowingly falls asleep and is found by 4 men staying in the cabin on a ski holiday. These men scare her at first, but she soon decides that they are the only people that can protect her. But she must figure out exactly what's happened and who she can trust very quickly, it's life or death for her. This was a compelling story. The plot was fun and I got immersed very quickly. I loved the bit of love story in this book. I thought that Sadie was a strong heroine, but I can't say that I loved her tendency to forgive her abusive boyfriend so quickly. I hope there's more stories by this author soon!

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 …
