The Chimney Sweep Charm

Baylee is excited for her dream job of being in a Handbell ringers choir at Dicken's village for the Christmas season. This is an amazing opportunity for her to do what she loves most, ring handbells and sing. It's also an amazing opportunity for her in a way that she doesn't even realize at first. The Village is protected by Chimney Sweeps, just like Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins and these are not only chimney sweeps, they are retired Navy Seals and they are hot! Baylee is soon swept off her feet (pun intended) by Justice, an amazing chimney sweep that falls quickly for her as well. Soon she's enjoying his company for dinner on all of their shared breaks, but what she doesn't realize is that he's an FBI agent, all the chimney sweeps are, out on the lookout for the Jack the Ripper copy cat that seems to have his sights set on the Dicken's Village and maybe the girls in the Handbell choir.

This book was short and sweet. I loved the story set in Dicken's Village, I loved the old-time feel of Baylee and her life. I loved Justice. I really like that it was a clean story. There were a couple of mild swear words, nothing to major, but they didn't seem to fit in with the old time feel of the story. I enjoy Marcia's writing, I think she's amazing in that she has so many romantic stories that she's able to tell.

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 …
