Double Deceit

Elaina Bryant is a young widow. She ran off and eloped with her abusive husband as a teenager. Now he's died in a car accident and their young daughter, Anna, died with him. Elaina's finally decided to come back to her childhood home after 10 years. She hopes that her sister, Natalie, still lives there, but she's unsure because her husband had kept any mail that had come for her from her family. She found it in his things after he had died, including the notice that her mom had died. She thought that the letters that she had written home and mailed would have gotten to them, but they hadn't. She can only assume that he had gotten rid of the mail that she had tried to send to her family after they had gotten married. Natalie is thrilled to see Elaina and know that she's okay. Elaina tries to move on with her life by getting a job in a small bookstore in town and starting to fall in love with her boss, Ryan. But as she falls in love with Ryan strange things start happening to Elaina, letters from her dead husband with recent dates, and phone calls that tell her that whoever is tormenting her is closer to her than she would like. But will she go as crazy as everyone thinks she is before she finds out just who is tormenting her. I enjoyed this book. The characters had enough quirks to seem like real people. I tend to like books that are a speck creepy, like this one was. I had kind of figured out just who the person was sending her all the mail, but I could never have predicted the ending!

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'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 …
