Code Word

Carina Channing has been on the run for the last couple of years. She grew up as a member of a mob family in Chicago, that she now refers to as simply "The Family", but her mom knew that she didn't want her three daughters raised that way, so she moved them to a neighborhood in Colorado that she felt they would be safe in and never looked back. Unfortunately, their father found out where they were living and killed Carina's mother when the girls were out for pizza together. Carina knows how "The Family" is and knows that she must keep herself and younger sisters hidden. The only problem is that a member of "The Family" appears to have found her, she keeps telling him to leave her alone, but he doesn't listen and soon she has to rely on almost total strangers to keep her and her youngest sister, Bianca, safe from the mob. One of those total strangers is Jay Wellman, he's a member of the Saint Squad of Navy Seals, he happens to be on leave, and is there right when Carina needs help. Will he be able to keep Carina and her sister safe with his growing feelings for Carina?

I enjoy the books in the Saint Squad series. I thought this one was good as well, I had a hard time putting it down. I like the characters and care about what happens to them, that's important to me. What I really like about Traci Hunter Abramson's books is that the characters from all of her books make appearances where you would least expect them to. It's like running into old friends!

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…

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 …
