On the surface you would think that Caleb and Catherine have the perfect marriage. He's a handsome firefighter who saved her father when he was stuck inside a building. She's a PR specialist for a prominent hospital. But their marriage is not working for either of them, and both are frustrated by the attitude of the other. It's hard for them to remember the good times, like when they were newlyweds or when Caleb saw Catherine for the first time without the bitterness of the way their life is now. Catherine has met someone else at work and she's not having an affair...yet, but it seems to be headed that direction. Caleb knows that Catherine is done and wants to just let their marriage die, but then he talks to his father and his father convinces him that he needs to give their marriage just 40 more days and that will make all the difference. Soon Caleb gets a package in the mail from his dad, it's a book called The Love Dare. Every day there is a new thing that Caleb is supposed to do for Catherine, but he's doubtful it will work. Their marriage is too far gone for anything to work, or is it?

I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. I enjoyed the firefighting aspect, but I also enjoyed the Christian aspect too. And who doesn't like a little bit of a love story thrown into the mix! I haven't seen the movie, so I don't really know how it compares, but this was written after the movie, so I would guess that it's pretty close.

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 …
