Spinster's Folly

Marie Owen has just seen her best friend marry her older brother, so she's already wondering about her own future. When her younger sister tells her that she's a spinster at 18 that's the final straw. She goes to her father and practically demands that he find her a husband like he did for all of her older brothers. She does end up betrothed to a man, but she doesn't realize that Tom Morgan would be so unkind and even forward before their engagement is even officially announced, and she wants out of it right away. But Marie knows that she must go through with this wedding because of her demands of her father. When things become unbearable with Tom, she sees a way out with a mysterious stranger, so she takes it. Marie runs away to get married to a man that she believes will be kind and take care of her, but she couldn't have been so wrong. Will her family be able to find her and save her in time, or will it be too late for Marie?

I had no idea when I started reading this book that it was the fourth book in the series. I wondered as I started reading it, but didn't realize until after I had read the whole thing. Luckily you can get the basic idea of what has happened in the other stories from this one! I liked Marie's character mostly, some times I wondered why she was so gullible. I liked the plot and especially the ending. This was a cute love story. 

I received an e-copy of this book from the Whitney Award Committee.

  1. I've heard a lot about this book, too, but didn't realize it was part of a series. Good to know!

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 …
