Countdown to Love

It's Kelly's wedding day, and as she looks in the mirror at the stunningly beautiful bride standing before her, she doesn't recognize her at all. She's just a country girl born and bred in Tennessee. Kelly hadn't realized it, but her fiance Trevor, isn't at the church and ready for the wedding. She tries several times to call him, but he doesn't answer. When she goes to her condo and realizes that Trevor hasn't been paying the bills, she's being kicked out and he's gone, she isn't sure just what to do. So she grabs her wedding dress, her cake and camps out on the steps of her Daddy's home, where her cousin Sissy, a producer of Countdown to Love, a reality show finds her later. Sissy has some problems of her own, one of the female contestants on the show is not going to be able to be on the show. Sissy gets an idea, Kelly doesn't have anything to do and needs some money to pay for the wedding that didn't happen, and Sissy needs an attractive female to fill in for her on the reality show. Sissy's able to finally talk Kelly into going on the show, by promising that she'll only have to be on the first episode, and she'll be headed back home with money to pay her bills. But Kelly doesn't count on falling for the handsome bachelor Dillon Black. I've been wanting to read this book for awhile now, but the library here hasn't gotten it. Lucky for me, it's on the Whitney Award nominees list and I was able to read an e-copy from the Whitney Academy. This book was so fun! I loved Kelly, she starts out so....brainwashed by her boyfriend Trevor, she really can't think for herself, but by the end she figures out just who she wants to be, and she may even find true love along the way!

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 …
