Sworn Enemy

It's June 1944 and Genevieve Olivier and Peter Eddy are on the run from the Gestapo. They have been extremely careful, traveling only at night and sleeping during the day with one of them, usually Peter, watching and alert at all times. Unfortunately, they've still been followed by the Gestapo agents that want to end the lives of both the sweet French girl and the American soldier. Luckily, Peter noticed the agents heading into the old barn in time to not get caught himself, but Genevieve was not so lucky, she's been cornered in the barn by the very men that want them both dead. The agents know that Lieutenant Eddy will try to rescue Genevieve, so they propose a trap. She's taken to a well guarded home, where the Gestapo can easily capture Eddy, or so they think. What actually happens is that Eddy makes some new friends who help him capture the Gestapo. But will the Gestapo ever truly stop searching for Genevieve or Peter? What does the remainder of the war hold in store for these resilient young people?

This book picks up right where Espionage left off, make sure to read that one first! I loved the action and adventure in this book. I really loved Genevieve and Peter's characters, no matter the obstacle, they are able to overcome all things. I loved the war details in this book, I don't remember learning some of this information about WWII in my history classes, maybe part of that comes from the characters being immersed in the countries that were at war, not just looking in. I didn't want to put this book down!

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 …
