Royal Secrets

Alora DeSanto is making a life for herself with her two young sons, she had gone to the doctor Christmas Eve 3 years ago. Her youngest son had strep throat and needed a prescription, while she was waiting in line at the pharmacy she got a call from her husband Carlo that cut off in the middle. Then almost immediately she got a call from a neighbor saying that her home had blown up. She rushed home and found...nothing left of her house, her husband, parents and in-laws, because it was Christmas everyone was visiting her home. Her husband Carlo's CIA status had been revealed and made him a target for some terrorists. Now 3 years later, the life insurance money that she's been living on is about gone, and her best friend, Janessa Rogers, needs an assistant to help her plan her wedding to Prince Garrett of Meridia. Alora moves to the royal chateau in Bellamo just after someone had attempted to assassinate Prince Stefano, so he's also there recovering from that attempt. Alora and Stefano's paths seem to cross an awful lot and he's so good with her two young boys, Dante and Giancarlo, that Alora can't help but see him in a romantic light, even though he isn't of her LDS faith. Is it possible for the two of them to break down the barriers between them and fall in love with each other. This was a really fun book, full of romance and mystery. The pages kept turning for me as I tried to figure out just who was behind all the treachery in the country of Meridia. I was way off, I love it when books aren't as predictable as I expect!

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 …
