Claire Hart is just a normal 16 year old girl. She has very overprotective parents because of something that happened to her older sister. Her favorite books are the Twilight series, so she's beyond thrilled when Darlene and Roger, some of her parents friends want to take her to Seattle. The only way they will agree is if Claire's older sister, Cassidy goes as well, Clair quickly gets over the fact that her parents have basically invited Cassidy along. It's SEATTLE, after all! The whole reason that Darlene wants Claire to go to Seattle is so that the kids of some of their friends would have someone to hang out with. That is kind of a red flag for Claire about those kids, but she's pleasantly surprised when she meets Tony and his sister Nora. But it seems as though they have a secret and Claire is certain that she knows exactly what it is. They do live in Seattle, and of course, so does Edward and his family. Not to mention Tony is hot enough to be a vampire! Cassidy is sure that her sister's crazy, so Claire produces the Twilight books for her to read and she's immediately hooked, although skeptical about Tony being a vampire. This book was hilarious! Claire gets herself into so much trouble, because of her belief in vampires and werewolves and believing that she knows people who are those things. I love how Claire is so naive in the beginning, and how she kind of grows up to the point where she cares more about the people around her than she cares about herself. This is the second book in The Jane Austen Diaries series by Jenni James. You definitely want to read the first one Pride and Popularity, just because of pure awesomeness, but I'm not sure that you have to read these ones in order if you don't want to or happen not to. I happened to meet Jenni James at a book signing a few weeks ago, she's super nice and her books are amazing!

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 …
