Tres Leches Cupcakes

Sadie Hoffmiller is enjoying her time in Santa Fe, New Mexico as best as she can. She would rather go home and spend time with her boyfriend Pete, but she knows that there's a killer after her, so she tries to make the best of staying in New Mexico. She stays busy by being an undercover informant for the BLM, which involves lots of digging in the hot, dusty desert and getting to know knew people. She's staying with Pete's cousin, Caro, who shares Sadie's love of baking and learning lots of new recipes to put into her black book. Sadie runs into trouble, it always seems to know where to find her, one day as she's digging at the dig site, when she and a co-worker, Margo dig up a couple of new dead bodies, where there's only supposed to be really old ones. This is the start of craziness for Sadie, before the craziness is over there will be several more dead bodies, Margo will be missing and Sadie will have hopefully recovered her prowess for detective work before it becomes too late for her.

I loved this book! I'm so glad that Sadie got her mojo back, she really didn't feel like herself in Banana Split, but in this book she's got her spunky, take charge attitude back, plus she's making some amazing recipes. I thought that it was kind of fun to see some QR codes sprinkled throughout this book. I can't wait to get the recipes from this book at Josi's website, there were several that I want to try, including the Tres Leches Cupcakes recipe, it looks amazing!

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 …
