Undercover Saint

Matthew Knight is a 30 year-old undercover FBI agent. He's snatched from his birthday party with his two best friends to go on a new assignment. Unfortunately, this assignment has him headed to Salt Lake City, the city where his mom was murdered when he was only 8 years-old. Matt knows that this is going to bring some ghosts back for him, and he doesn't really want to face them. Things get even worse when he realizes that his boss on this mission is the man who not only trained him as an agent, but also his Mormon Bishop. Having not really realized that he was still even a Mormon, things get interesting really fast. Matt will be expected to attend his singles ward and get to know everyone to determine who could be a terrorist trying to commit a huge biological warfare act against the people of Salt Lake City. His Bishop advises dating as a way to get to know the women, but Matt has no desire to date anyone other than the girl he loves, Becca, who also happens to be married to his best friend. Matt quickly finds some suspects that he needs to check out, but when those lead to an apparent dead end, and he's nearly killed in a hit and run, Matt knows that he needs to find the terrorists and fast. But will his feelings for Hope Winslow get in the way of figuring out the terrorist's target? 

I really enjoyed reading this book! Matt is a likable character, I really enjoyed seeing things through his eyes. I really loved his perception of Hope, how she just glowed and I loved when he realized why and how that helps his testimony later on in the story. There were parts of this book that made me laugh out loud, they were just funny. There are also plenty of tense moments when your not sure just what's going to happen to the characters.  I also liked the way he was able to move past the killing of his mother. I hope that Frank Holdaway writes more books soon! 

I was able to borrow this one from my local library.

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 …
