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…

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 …
