Table for Two

Jana's life is going nowhere and fast! She has a job as a legal secretary that she hates. Her "boyfriend" Brad creeps her out and she's not sure why, her mom likes him and can't wait for her to get settled down. She knows that she needs to do something different with her life but she's not sure just what. Out of the blue one day she gets a call from a man in Seattle, who says that he's responding to a resume that she sent to him...over a year ago. She's not quite sure about the man, Alex, but he convinces her to come for an interview and throws in quite a few perks, free car rental, flights for her and her mom, meals at a fancy restaurant, and Jana can't refuse. It becomes even harder for Jana to refuse the job when she meets Alex and his young daughter and hears the story of the boutique that Alex wants her to set up in the house that's next door to his. Alex's wife was going to make a boutique, she'd planned everything out, the only thing she didn't plan on was getting sick and dying. Alex wants the boutique put together so that his daughter has something to remember her mother by, and he wants Jana to do it. Very soon though Jana develops feelings for Alex that she knows she shouldn't have because he's her boss and also a non-member. Those feelings aren't going away and when she realizes that Alex has feelings for her too, she becomes very confused about everything. Can she get past her confusion and reach for her future before it's too late?

I really enjoyed this book! I had a hard time wanting to put it down. Jana and her feelings and emotions felt so real to me, and Alex was just too amazing of a romantic interest. I loved the story and the lesson that Jana eventually learns about her Heavenly Father's love for each of us!

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 …
