Fractured Light

Llona has lots of things she doesn't really like about her life. She's an orphan living with her Uncle Jake, who mostly just plays video games and leaves the house a mess. They've had to move a lot, because Llona is an Aura and she's afraid that the Vyken who killed her Aura mother is after her too. Because she has someone hunting her, Llona tends to be a bit of a loner. Life in high school is really hard without many real friends. But Llona decides that a life without fun and friends is not really any kind of a life. So she lets a few people in, May is her best friend and the one person who truly seems to understand that Llona has secrets. Christian is a boy that Llona just met, he seems to really like her and want to be her boyfriend, but he can be really over-protective at times. With these two by her side Llona feels as though she can face anything...well, at least Mr. Steele's high school math classes. But there are some really strange things happening around Llona. First she finds a woman's shoe on her porch, the shoe ends up belonging to a woman that was killed across town. Next a woman is killed by Llona's car, and this woman also ends up having a connection to her. Llona is afraid that both of these murders were done by the same Vyken, and that it's only a matter of time until she's next. Will she be able to protect herself?

I was actually going to read this book last year, when it came out, but the file that I had from NetGalley didn't work. So I was really excited to be able to sign up for the blog tour for Fractured Soul and be able to read this one too! I'm so glad that the book lived up to my high expectations! The characters were awesome in this book! I loved Llona, she's got a lot of spunk. I loved Christian and May too. The story line was great too, I loved how the story moved right along and had plenty of action. I had kind of guessed who the bad guy was in the story, but I was still surprised at the way the ending played out. This is a way fun series! I can't wait to read the next book.

I was sent an e-copy of this book to 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 …
