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…

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 …
