Venom

Samantha Evans is a young woman. She works at an advertising agency, but she's new to the company so she doesn't really have any sort of office or prestige. She lives with a crazy roommate who likes to party both at clubs and at home, but Sam is an LDS girl who is pretty quiet and avoids that kind of thing. When she opens her latest credit card statement expecting to see a couple hundred dollars and sees nearly a thousand all spent at places that the thrifty girl she is would never go, she knows that her ID has been stolen, except her card's still there. Mystified, Sam sets out to make the charges right and fix her ID. When the chance comes to go to Mexico as a personal assistant to the creative director of her company, she sees the opportunity to use her Spanish from her mission, and maybe even work her way up in the company to get a little more money. But at the last minute there is a switch as to which executive from the company will be going and Sam knows that Katrina has it in for her, but she's not sure why, because she doesn't really know her. One thing is for certain this trip will be a whirlwind of action, adventure and even danger for Sam. I loved this story. Sam seemed like a girl that I would know and like, I really enjoy being able to "know" the characters in books. I loved the romance that came with this story and I really enjoyed the end of the book. I had figured out who the bad guy was, but not the good guys and loved how that worked out.

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 …
