Texting Through Time

Micah has "borrowed" his dad's phone. This is not just a phone though, it's an experimental time-travel phone. Micah is showing his sister Alicia the phone and how it works when-bam- they are sent to Brigham Young's boyhood home. It's Brigham's 11th birthday. While it's pretty neat to meat a prophet, before he becomes a prophet, it wasn't so neat when the phone didn't appear to be working anymore. Alicia and Micah are scared and it appears that they will be trapped in the past. The phone does allow them to travel to later events in Brigham's life and the kids are able to see many of the events of Church history that are very neat, still they just want to go home. Along the way they learn many lessons, most importantly that the Lord watches over all of his children. But will Micah and Alicia ever make it back home to their own time and family?

I found the premise of this story clever. How many books out there are there about a time traveling cell phone? This was fun, I also loved that the kids visit Brigham Young, a prophet of the Lord. I can see how this book will get kids more interested in Church History, that's always a good thing! This book is written for the pre-teen/teen age kids, but I loved it also. The characters are fun, I love how they progress through their lessons, picking out what they are supposed to learn from their experiences. I highly recommend this one! I can't wait to read the next Texting Through Time book!

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 …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
