Espionage

It's 1944, Peter Eddy is in France on a dangerous mission to retrieve a code book that was stolen by the Nazi's. He knows that he has to get the book or die trying, but he's never stolen anything in his life. Peter is just a farm boy from a small town in Idaho, he joined the army when he learned that his older brother had died at Pearl Harbor, against his father's wishes. Now he's on a dangerous mission that no one even thinks that he's going to survive. He very nearly doesn't, but returns to the ship he left from with the code book, only to find that the ship's captain and only occupant has been killed and now the ship is commanded by a German captain and his lackey. Peter must get rid of both Germans in order to make it back to England. He is able to do that and wakes up in an English hospital. Soon he is given another mission. This time, he must become a secret agent in France and help the French Resistance to convince the Germans that the attack they are expecting will come, where they are expecting it, and not somewhere else. But Peter must be very careful and suspect everyone, because someone out there is a traitor.


I had a hard time getting into this story at first, but by the end I didn't want it to end. I was amazed at the depth of Peter's character. I love how well I was able to get to "know" him. The plot was intriguing, it's a book well worth reading!

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 …
