Targets in Ties

It's been two years since Ren left for Mexico on his mission and Ida Mae, Tansy and Arlette are thrilled to be able to go pick him up from the mission field. And they are planning on making a real vacation of it, by visiting several of the tourist areas in Mexico...hello, Cancun! As she's doing her packing, Ida Mae is watching the news reports of the escaped antiquities thief Manuel Gonzales, just because it's interesting and something to do. But she doesn't realize that she's about to come face to face with the escaped prisoner, in fact, he's going to kidnap her and try to convince her of his innocence. None of the women is sure what to think of Manuel, but they decide to believe him and go along with his plan to lure the man that Manuel claims is the real thief out into the open. Unfortunately, their plan backfires and soon someone is taking shots at Ida Mae, Tansy and Arlette. Then the friends are kidnapped for the second time, will the friends be able to escape with their lives, or will this adventure be the end of the line for some of them?

These books are so fun! I love Ida Mae, Arlette and Tansy. I love how they all have their own personalities and quirks. These women make me laugh, they always know just how to get themselves in far deeper trouble than they have previously been in. And of course, they always get tricked by the real thief. I really enjoyed how the areas in Mexico that I've never been to came alive for me in Tristi's story. And I really enjoyed the surprise at the end. I can't wait to be able to read the next book in this series, "Till Death Do Us Part."

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 …
