Left to Love

Leigh's life is great! She's just gotten married to the love of her life, Brian, and she got his little boy Nathan in the bargain. She has a nice house in Provo, that she's excited to live in with her new family. And she's just reconnected with her older brother who has been estranged from the family for 10 years. Things couldn't get much better, but that's when everything comes crashing down. Leigh realizes that all of her small symptoms that she's been noticing add up to the fact that her ovarian cancer has returned. Things were terrible for her as she went through the treatments to rid herself of the cancer the first time and she knows that this time it will be even worse, especially as she has added responsibility for her new husband and his young son. One of the things that makes life harder for Leigh is how hard Brian has to work to pick up the slack for all that Leigh can no longer do. Leigh needs to learn, and fast, how to lean on those around her when she needs help, and not to shut them out when things get tough, but will she be able to?

This is the sequel to The Next Door Boys, and I have to say that I am so glad there was more to Leigh and Brian's story, you should probably read that one first! This story made me laugh and cry, I love that I felt like I knew the characters well enough to care what happened to them. I love the way that Jolene Perry writes, you feel as though you are there, in Leigh's home, in the dreary hospital as she goes through her treatments, though that's not somewhere I would rather be, but it felt so real. This book was clean and well written.

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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it'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 …
