The Alloy of Law

Waxillium Ladrian, Wax, is just a normal Twinborn. He uses Alloymancy to Push on metals. I'm not really sure what that means, except that he can kind of shoot off of nails and things. He works as basically a policeman in the Rough. He's been forced to move back to the city and become Lord Ladrian because his uncle has been killed, and he's still getting over the fact that he killed the woman he loved when a maniacal killer moved her at just the wrong second. The House of Ladrian needs more cash, he's found out that his uncle was not very good at managing the books in the time that he was the Lord and the house still has to take care of many people by paying them wages. Wax must find a woman willing to marry him...a rich woman. But none of those women are willing to even talk to him, because he is most definitely still rough around the edges from all of his years of living as a lawman in the Rough. Finally, after a lot of hard work, he's able to catch the eye of Steris Harms, who seems willing to marry him and share her wealth, but she has a whole agreement written up for him to sign about their married life. She seems to be just what he's looking for, but there is a mystery in town and Wax just can't seem to stay out of it, getting pulled in even deeper when Steris is kidnapped. Will Wax be able to figure out the mystery and save Steris before it's too late. I have to say there's really no way I would have read this book, it's just really not the type I look at. I read it because it's a Whitney nominee. The book started out really slow for me, but once it got going, I really enjoyed it. There was plenty of mystery and plenty of action.

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 …
