I'll Know You by Heart

Stephanie Roberts seems to be trapped in an abusive marriage, but she knows that it has to be over the night that her husband comes home to beat her, and when their teenage son, Tyson, tries to stop the beating, he starts to beat Tyson. Stephanie and Tyson load up the other two girls, Maddie and Sarah and as much of their things as they can carry and head for Stephanie's mom's house. Trying to make life normal for her family, Stephanie gets an apartment and a job at a pediatrician's office. One day she answers the phone at work to find a man distressed about his daughter's broken arm, what she doesn't understand is how the man seems so familiar to her, even though she's never met him before. Jared Wakefield is a single father, his wife died just 6 weeks before, he's trying to adjust to caring for their daughter, Katie, without any help at all. Even though his wife wasn't a great wife or mother, she was at least there, and Katie misses that. Jared needs someone to help him watch Katie, and Stephanie seems to be just the person for the job. But will her abusive estranged husband leave her alone? 


This was a cute story, I can't say that it was my favorite, but it was a fun book to read once. I don't really love the abusive parts, but the romance part was good. I liked the characters and cared about what happened to them. I would read more books by Kimberly Job.

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 know...it'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 …
