Blog Tour - Lifestyles of the Great and Spacious

Over 2000 years ago, Lehi had a dream, a dream that would relate so well to our time that we could then use it to apply to the world in which we live. This book by John Bytheway, one of the best author's and speakers for teens, tells us that story. It's written in a way that will speak specifically to teens about life and the world around them. It will teach them to always want to clutch tightly to the Iron Rod that Lehi saw, and to be able to avoid listening to the mocking voices of those hanging out in the great and spacious building, pointing the finger of scorn. 

I've read Lehi's dream from the 8th chapter of 1st Nephi in the Book of Mormon countless times. But I've never thought about the story the way that this book helped me to think of it before. I love the way that John Bytheway is able to teach the things that he has learned from the scriptures in a way that is quick, easy and fun to read. It's easy to see why he's one of the most popular speakers and teachers of the youth. It's almost impossible not to learn something from him. I loved this book, I'm looking forward to reading more of his books teaching about scripture stories!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

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 …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
