Do Over

It's the happiest day of Iris' life, she's just married the love of her life. She's at the reception, mingling and enjoying herself, when she's accosted by a woman claiming to be the girlfriend of the man she's just married. When the woman is able to produce proof, including texts, and pictures and proof that she's not the only one, Iris knows that she must get out of her four hour old marriage, and fast and start over. So Iris moves to Alpine, Utah, a very small town where her cousin Luke and his wife Maggie live and decides to reinvent herself. Gone is the classy woman who dresses conservatively and has beautiful auburn hair. That woman becomes a woman who wears holy jeans, motorcycle boots and her hair has bright red on the tip to look like flames. What Iris doesn't know is about the contest. Maggie and her friends Jacie, Sophie, and Allison decide over one of their monthly lunches that Sophie's brother-in-law, Trey, needs a woman in the worst way. Maggie thinks that Iris, who she hasn't seen in a year would be perfect, while Sophie thinks that the new stylist at her salon, Macie Jo, is just the one for Trey. The women agree that Trey will make the final decision and that they will all be fine with whatever he decides. But when Trey picks Iris, without even knowing about the wager, Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. The result is craziness in a way that only Sophie can manage. 

I have to say that Shannon Guymon is one of my very favorite clean romance authors. I've read everyone of her books several times, because they are so amazing. The characters are always likable and seem like people you know. The situations are always just a little bit crazy. I love the way that she portrays Alpine as the kind of place where everyone knows everyone else and everyone else's business too. This book was no exception! I loved Iris, I loved Trey and the whole bet on who Trey chooses thing was pretty funny. I really like how these books are kind of a series, but each is also able to stand alone. I was able to read this one quickly, mainly because I didn't want to put it down. I was super sad when I finished, I'm hoping for more of these books really soon!

I was able to read the e-version of this book that I got from Netgalley.

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 …

About the book: Young Women serving as missionaries today are carrying on a noble legacy of faith and dedication that extends back to the early days of the Church.

In Sweet Is the Work, author Breanna Olaveson delves into a previously unexplored history that demonstrates the unique ability of women to carry out the errand of angels.
