Dangerous Favor

Mathilde is 18, so she feels kind of stupid trailing after her brother to one of his tournaments, but her father insisted. Mathilde doesn't know anyone in the tournament besides her brother, but she knows that she needs an ally and fast! Her father has been accused of stealing from the king, and that had made their family lose all of their wealth and good standing. Mathilde figures that if she finds a knight that would be willing to help her find out what really happened to the things her father was accused of stealing, she can make her family right again. It wouldn't hurt if the knight was handsome or wealthy either. Enter Lord Therri and Etienne. Therri is amazingly handsome, Mathilde refers to him as the Vision, but he doesn't even really notice Mathilde. Etienne is another matter altogether. He thinks that Mathilde is beautiful, but knows as the younger son that he must marry someone with a great dowry. Things at the tournament get out of hand and in order to protect her, Mathilde's brother, cuts her hair and leaves her with Etienne and Therri as a squire, only they don't know that it's Mathilde, they think she's her twin Mathieu. That's when all the craziness happens!

This was a fun book. I liked the plot, set in Medival times. I liked the characters. I like how all the characters in Joyce DiPatena's novels intermingle, so you can tell what happens to them after their stories end. I like the romantic parts and that it's completely clean.

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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.

About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
