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…

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 …
