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…

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 …
