The Road to Grace

Alan Christofferson is a man with a mission. He's walking clear across the country from Seattle to Key West, Florida. What is the cause of his decision to walk across country? The death of his beloved wife, she was thrown from her horse and died from complications within a couple of months. It was devastating to Alan, but it was made even worse by his business partner in his advertising business, bankrupting his business and taking all his clients. In this book, the third installment of The Walk Series, Alan finds himself in desolate Custer, South Dakota. He's trying to enjoy the sights in the area as he walks through, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse, when he runs into someone he never in a million years thought that he would run into: his mother-in-law. She finds him as he's leaving his motel in Custer, and he wants nothing to do with her. Pamela had left his wife McHale when she was a young girl, never to be seen again by her. Pamela is on a mission, she's been searching for Alan for weeks, but he gives her the cold shoulder and walks off, leaving her in the dust. But she refuses to give up. She keeps following Alan across South Dakota to the detriment of her own health. Until he feels he has no choice but to talk to her. When he does he realizes something about himself and about all of us, we all need Grace in our lives, the grace of a loving Heavenly Father and also the grace of those around us. I enjoyed this book. I loved all the locations that Alan visits, one of my favorites was Wall Drug, a place that I was able to visit as a child. I really like Alan, and the other characters that help him out along the way. I can't wait to read the fourth book about Alan and his walk, even more so after reading the cliff hanger ending of this book!

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 …
