Miss Delacourt Has Her Day

Ginny Delacourt is so in love and ready to be married to the man who has been courting her for just a few weeks, Sir Anthony. She can't wait! But it appears that she must wait a bit longer, for Sir Anthony, at the unexpected death of his cousin becomes heir to his uncle, the Duke of Marcross. Unfortunately, this uncle doesn't approve of Sir Anthony marrying Ginny, as she's just the daughter of a lowly vicar. The cross old uncle seems determined to make both Anthony and Ginny jump through every hoop he can find. Meanwhile, Anthony's mother also decides that she needs to get in on the fun. She makes catty remarks to Ginny every time she can find a chance. It's enough to make Anthony's grandmama and Ginny's grandaunt, Regina Crenshaw, crazy. Will Anthony be able to jump through enough hoops to satisfy his uncle and make Ginny's big day happen? I didn't realize that this book is a sequel to Miss Delecourt Speaks Her Mind. I haven't read that one, and I read this one because it was a Whitney nominee. I did like that there was enough information in this one that I didn't feel totally lost as to what happened in the first book. I would have preferred to have read the first one first, but too bad! I liked both Anthony and Ginny, but I didn't love the book. I don't know just why, the story was intriguing, but maybe there was just too much going on, with lots of different characters with their hands into Ginny's wedding day. Not quite sure, but this one was just okay for me.

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 …
