The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection

Precious Ramotswe is a standard woman living in Botswana, she's traditionally built and loves her bush tea. She, along with her assistant detective, Grace Makutsi, have been working in The Ladies Detective Agency for quite a while. They've seen many cases and solved them all with the book, the Principles of Private Detection by Clovis Anderson. One night, Precious has a dream, she dreams that she sees a stranger underneath an tree. She and Mma Makutsi puzzle over the meaning of their dream. As they are puzzling, their friend Mma Potokwane comes to discuss her troubles with them. Mma Potokwane is the matron at the orphan farm. She has worked tirelessly for years to take care of the orphans and their needs. But now, she's being usurped by the board of the orphan farm. They want to build a big building to be used in the feeding of the orphans, instead of allowing them to eat in small family units, to save money. The family units allow the orphans a feeling of belonging to a family and being loved. So Mma Potokwane is distressed that the board is only concerned about money. She asks Mma Ramotswe to look into the matter for her. Luckily for Mma Ramotswe, the stranger from her dream turns out to be none other than Clovis Anderson himself. It will take all three of them to uncover just what is going on with the orphan farm's board. I enjoy these books. They are clean, I love the characters in them, they all have such personalities! The stories are fun and leave me waiting for the next one to be written. I love the flavor of Africa in these books as well. I would read them in order, that way you can get to know the characters and you aren't lost when passing reference to things that have happened before is made.

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 …
