Smart Move

Sandy has just moved from Seattle to Washington DC for her new job. She loves the job, but the only problem is this lawyer she keeps having to deal with. Sandy works for an outreach center to help young women make their lives better, that center is trying to expand into a new neighborhood, but this move is put on hold by this cocky, rude lawyer. Unfortunately for Sandy, this lawyer happens to be in her singles ward. Also unfortunately, he also happens to be a young man that she's been unable to get out of her head ever since she met him in a Seattle dance club a year ago. Sandy tries to reconcile in her head the prideful lawyer Jake with the awesome young man Jake she met a year before, but it's not working, and her heart isn't budging either. Jake isn't sure why either of their jobs should matter now, when they didn't matter in Seattle and he can't fathom giving up on what he previously felt for Sandy. Sandy doesn't see things the same way and decides that Jake needs to be taught a lesson for never calling her back. But will she be the one doing the teaching or the learning?

I knew as soon as I read the first chapter of this book it was going to be good. It not only was good, it was amazing! I love the way Melanie Jacobson writes, her books are so romantic and they never go anywhere they shouldn't. I love the characters, Sandy's mom is so out there! Jake is such an awesome male character and Sandy, I can picture myself being friends with Sandy. She's such an individual. I was really worried about the ending, Sandy is so stubborn, but was thrilled with the way it worked out. This book is a stand alone book, but to really understand Sandy's backstory, you might want to read Twitterpated first. I can't wait for the next book by Melanie Jacobson, I know it will be romantic and amazing!

I bought a copy of this book for myself, because I knew it would be amazing!

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.
