Blog Tour - Charlie's Girl

Rosalind is 14, her parents died when she was very young and since then she's been bounced from foster home to foster home in Arizona. Until now. Now she's going to live with a grandmother she never knew she had in a small southern town. Both Rosalind and her grandmother, Grace, will have to adjust to having each other. Grace also will have to adjust to the fact that her son Charlie's girl is really nothing like her father in looks, or how she acts and come to terms with the daughter-in-law that she has always felt stole her little boy. Grace has been accustomed to living alone as her husband died the same day that Rosalind's parents did. The small town girls make things difficult for Rosalind too, none of them want to befriend her and they go out of their way to leave her out of everything they do. One day, a large family from Utah moves in across the street and Rosalind starts to get to know them. Little does she know that their religion will one day connect her to the parents that she's never known. 

This was a cute book. I thought that the way that small town living is portrayed was right on. I loved the characters, especially Rosalind and Grace. I really enjoyed the journey of discovery and faith that both Rosalind and Grace go on together, and how they were able to pull together and become family. This is a heartwarming story!

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 …
