Blog Tour - Texting Through Time: John Taylor and the Mystery Puzzle



Micah and Alicia are tired of the heat one summer's day. They decide the best way to get out of the heat is to use their dad's special phone and travel back in time to the England of John Taylor's day. Micah and Alicia have used their dad's special phone previously to learn about Brigham Young's time, but this time they are not going alone, this time their dad is going to go with them. Or is he? When they arrive in England their dad is not there. Unsure of just what happened, they are able to meet John Taylor and get to know him through key events in his life. They also gain a greater testimony of living prophets. Their dad made several changes to the phone since the last time they were able to use it, and one of those changes was to add a puzzle. Micah and Alicia must complete the puzzle on the phone to get back home. But the phone battery runs out when they are still in France,Website Micah and Alicia must find all the faith they possess to figure out a solution to charge the phone in a time when there was no electricity so they can get home and not be stuck in the past.

This was a really fun book! I love the way that Christy Monson teaches kids about faith, testimony and Prophets of the latter days. This series is engaging, entertaining and educational for kids of all ages! I learned so much myself about the Prophet John Taylor, I especially loved the scene where Micah and Alicia meet John Taylor's kids and they tell true stories about his teachings to them. I also enjoyed the Primary scene, it's pretty cool because the Sister Rogers mentioned is one of my 5th great aunts. Love this series! Can't wait for the next one.

I was sent an e-book in exchange for an honest review. The opinions in the review are all my own.

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 …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
