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…

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 …
