My Lucky Stars

Tara Mollagen is on her way to a Christmas with the girls at a spa in Denver, the only problem is first she has to conquer her claustrophobia enough to make the flight...with a really annoying teenage boy sitting by her. Well, she might have a few more problems than that. The Denver airport is closed by a massive blizzard in Denver and she's rerouted to Salt Lake. It gets worse though, her luggage is missing, and her purse, including credit cards, cash, ID, must have been that annoying teenager. She's on the phone, yelling at the credit card company, unsure of what she's going to do in an unfamiliar city with no money, no luggage, all she's got left is her makeup. Enter Ben, he knows that he needs to do something for this self absorbed women, at least that's what his niece, Cadie tells him, but he doesn't really want to get tangled up in her life. All Tara knows is that this really attractive man that dresses like a lumberjack can be super nice when he wants to be, but he can also be kind of mean to her. But by the end of their 3 days together they both are seeing different sides of the other and discovering that maybe they could like the other person. But is Tara willing to change herself and her life enough to make that happen? 


I have to say that I loved this book! I didn't like Tara at the first though. She was so self-absorbed and just rude. I thought that some of the things that Ben did to bate her were hilarious, it was seriously funny when he took her shopping at DI! Still laughing over that one. I really enjoyed getting to see what happened to Jane from Counting Stars and the cameo of Jay from All the Stars in Heaven, I love it when loved characters from previous books show back up, it's kind of like seeing a beloved friend again after a long absence!

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…
