Accidental Private Eye

Dallas Rowen has had a string of unbelievably bad luck. His apartment was broken into, and he lost a good chunk of his things, then he lost his job. He's down to his last few dollars, leaning against the wall of a detective agency when he's found by an older woman, Ellen Grady. She doesn't ask who she was, she just utters the words, "I need your help." She just assumed that Dallas was a private eye. He tries to explain, but she tells him that she prayed and the Lord told her that she is going to be able to help her. Ellen's grandson, Jerry Grady was driving his car in a demolition derby when he died. The death was all over the news, but what wasn't reported was that Jerry was killed, not by the demolition derby, but by a bullet to the head. Now Ellen wants Dallas to track down the killer, but things are already getting dangerous. First Ellen, then Dallas are threatened that if they keep poking around into Jerry's death, they'll be next. Dallas knows that he must protect Ellen and her cute and spunky granddaughter, Alexandra, from Jerry's killers, in order to do that he must find the killer. And fast.

I love reading books by Clair Poulson. These books are a bit romantic, but they are completely clean. His plots are always intriguing. I really enjoyed his characters. I also like that they are always set here in Utah. If you're in the mood for a slightly romantic, great mystery this book is for you!

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 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 …
