The Haunting of Autumn Lake

Autumn is the daughter of Handsome Ransom and Vaden Lake. She's grown up seeing just how madly in love her parents are and she knows that she wants a love that will love her in exactly the same way. She was named after the season Autumn which happens to be her mother's favorite season and she loves it too! The pumpkins, leaves changing, apples ripening and, being scared silly by legends, she loves the whole thing! One day while she's in town helping her aunt and uncle at their store, a group of cowboys comes into town and one of them is seriously wounded. Autumn is very compassionate and immediately goes to the cowboy and holds his head in her lap so that it doesn't have to rest on the dirty street. When he opens his blue eyes, she knows that this is the cowboy for her! As he gets well, she spends lots of time with him, hoping that he will soon fall for her too and love her the same way that her daddy loves her mamma. Only time will tell whether Autumn's romance will grow into love.

I was really excited to read another story about Ransom Lake. I thought that Autumn was a good character, romantic and sweet, I liked the cowboy Gentry too. I thought that the story of what happened to Autumn that Gentry saves her from went a little farther than I would have liked. It's still basically "clean" but I didn't like how the story talks about a guy putting his hands on her where he shouldn't have.

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 …
