The False Prince

Sage is an orphan living in a far away land. He's doing the best that he can for himself, he's found a place to live at the orphan's home, and he's not above stealing the occasional roast for himself and his fellow orphans to eat. That all changes one day when a man named Conner comes to his orphanage and takes him away. Sage doesn't understand why Conner wants him, and he tries to get away multiple times, but to no avail, he's knocked out, tied up and put into a wagon. When he wakes up, Sage realizes there are 3 other orphan boys in the wagon with him, and he's really confused as to what is happening and why. He does know he needs to escape. and he tries, yet again, but he's unsuccessful. Sage knows he must stop trying to escape when one of the boys is killed in front of the rest of them. Conner tells the remaining 3 boys of the King's family being killed, all except for Prince Jaron, who was presumed killed by pirates 4 years earlier. No one in the land knows that the royal family has been killed and Conner wants to keep it that way long enough to teach one of the orphan boys to be Prince Jaron and install him on the throne. Only one of the boys will be the prince, of course, the other two will most likely be killed. It's up to Sage to stop being so sarcastic and learn to be a real leader before one of the three boys gets hurt.

Wow, this book was amazing! I loved Sage. I really loved how the author keeps you in the dark about who had done certain things in this book, until the very end when secrets are revealed. I loved the characters in this book, Conner, and his servants Mott and Cregan are very believable villains. I loved the ending of this book! I can't wait to read the next book in this series, The Runaway King.

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 …
