Third Time's the Charm

Liz is a single mom to her six-year-old daughter, Paisley. She's been married twice, but neither of them worked out, so she and Paisley live in a small apartment. It seems like nothing in their small apartment works very well, including the kitchen faucet that she's already had fixed twice. She's at the end of her rope when she calls the apartment maintenance people, hoping against hope that they can fix the leak. What she gets is Sloane Branden, the attractive owner of her apartment complex. He happily fixes the leak for her, and tells her to call him if she ever needs anything else. Liz isn't quite sure why she can't stop thinking about him, she's sworn off men forever, and she knows that he too had a bad marriage experience. But sometimes you can't stop your heart from falling in love with someone. Will Liz give into her heart, or will she make the biggest mistake of her life?

This is a novella, so it's really short. I like how even though it's short, you get to "know" the characters in the book enough to care about what happens to them. I thought that the plot was really cute and I'm way excited that there are going to be other Aliso Creek Novellas for me to read! I can't wait to get to know all the Aliso Creek "Five"!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
