Untethered

Magnolia "Cricket" Cranford and her friends loved to meet out at the old Morgan place to plan their secret Friday outings. They would each pick a person to do something for that would brighten that person's day. This particular day there's serious business to attend to. Marie King's been smitten with Hudson Oliver for simply ages and now the Oliver family is going to be moving far away and Marie's never told Hudson how she feels. Cricket, Ann and Vilma decide that Hudson needs to be Marie's focus for their Friday outing. Only Marie is kind of scared to walk up to Hudson, tell him how she feels and give him a good kiss on the mouth. The only way the friends can think to get Marie to do it is to have Cricket do the same thing first. Only Cricket needs to kiss Heathro Thibodaux, that will be a feat. Heathro's a Texas Ranger who was in a tragic situation just a year before and he hasn't quite recovered from the shock of the whole situation yet. He's just trying to get by and keep his bull out of his neighbor's pastures. Cricket vows she'll do it, and she does, only to get a huge lecture from Heathro. Little do Cricket and her friends know, they are about to face the biggest challenge of their young lives with only Heath between them and the danger, will any of them live to tell about it?

I enjoyed this book. I liked Cricket, she's such a fun, spunky girl. Her friends are fun too. I also like the way they go about the town doing good. Such a fun idea. The plot of this one was pretty good too, I had no idea they had men selling young women into brothels in the old west, really interesting. And most importantly, there was plenty of kissing and flirting in this book. The ending was great! I'd have to say this was a great book! There were a few "farmer" type swear words in this book. 

I was able to borrow this book 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…

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 …
