Lady Outlaw

Jennie Jones has just been trying to hold her small family of her younger brother Will and grandmother together and stay on their ranch at the same time. Unfortunately life is getting in the way. The ranch is not completely paid for and Mr Dixon, the banker that holds the note is insisting that it be paid off, right away, and Jennie has no way of earning the money. She's headed home on the stage, when she realizes that she's riding home with a couple of thieves that robbed the last stage. She figures that there's no way anyone would miss $500 dollars of the money they stole and she can turn the thieves in as soon as she steals from them. Her plan goes off without a hitch and she's able to put a small dent in the bank loan. But it will take a lot more stealing to pay off the loan. 7 months later, Jennie is stealing from thieves yet again, this time she's not getting away from them so easily. Enter Caleb Johnson, he has no idea why these rough men are chasing the beautiful young lady, but he has no intention of letting them catch her. He saves her from them by pretending to be the sheriff. Jennie and Caleb escape, but Caleb having no idea she's a thief, promises to work for her as a cow hand. Little does he know he'll soon fall in love with her. But will he be able to get over his dead fiance in time to capture Jennie's heart as well? Will she repent of her thieving ways?

I enjoyed this book, the plot line was not like any others I've read. I loved the spitfire Jennie, I also really liked how she was able to learn that it's okay to ask for help if you need it. I also liked Caleb, he's a true gentlemen. I liked that the story was clean, the plot fast paced. I hope to be able to read more by Stacy Henrie soon!

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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

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 …
