Betsy and the Great World and Betsy's Wedding

Betsy and the Great World: Betsy has been at college for a couple of years now, but it's just so hard for her to want to continue. It doesn't help that Joe has moved from Minneapolis to Boston and that most of Betsy's friends are nearly done with college. Betsy and her father get together and determine that Betsy will be a better author if she is able to travel and see the "Great World." So a ticket is booked for Betsy on a ship bound for Europe, and the adventure of a lifetime. But will Betsy be able to deal with her homesickness? Will she miss her ex-boyfriend Joe, or will she be able to move on with someone else that she meets on her journeyings? 

Betsy's Wedding Betsy is coming home to America, because of the war in Europe. She's happy because she got a message from Joe asking her to come home. She can't wait to see him and get off the over crowded ship that she was lucky enough to be able to get passage home on. Joe meets her and first thing asks her to marry him, but he wants to get married right away, only a week after she gets home from Europe! Betsy knows there is no way her parents will consent to having a wedding so quickly, especially with Joe moving from Boston back to Minneapolis and no job in sight. She also knows that when Joe is determined to do something, it will be done. But will her wedding work out the way she wants it to? Will she be able to learn to cook and clean and do all the things that a proper wife should be able to do? Join Betsy and Joe on this journey to embark on their married lives together.

These books are so fun! I am sad to be done reading all of Betsy's adventures. I loved traveling with Europe with her. I loved all her adventures and her pining for Joe, even though they were through. I loved Joe's proposal and their quick wedding. I loved their first year together and learning how to keep house together. Betsy's Wedding was a grand way to end the Betsy-Tacy series, but I still wish for more!

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 …
