Blog Tour - Finding Sheba

finding sheba tour


Finding Sheba by H.B. Moore An ancient legend is reborn . . . One that might prove the Bible false. For centuries, historians have theorized the Queen of Sheba as only a seductive legend, and scholars have debated over the legitimacy of King David or King Solomon. When undercover Israeli agent, Omar Zagouri, stumbles onto a tomb in Northern Jerusalem he unknowingly finds the final clue that threatens to overthrow government claim to the Holy Land, pits wealthy collectors against one another, and sends ruthless archaeologists scrambling to find the queen’s secret burial place. An assassination attempt on the Coptic Pope, His Holiness, Patriarch Stephanus II, is only the first in the chain of lethal crimes. Omar must find a way to prevent the greatest discovery of the century from becoming the most deadly.



My Review Dr Richard Lyon knows that with the stroke of a mouse he could be signing his own death warrant. He's made a recent discovery about just where the burial place of the Queen of Sheba is and already one person has almost been murdered because of it. He's about ready to send out the email when a mysterious envelope is shoved under his office door. There's a mysterious message and another envelope inside. He's just inhaled the lethal cyanide inside the mysterious envelope and is fading quickly when he realizes that to send the email will lead his killers to even more victims. His final act is deleting the email from the system. Enter a cast of mysterious characters, there's Jade, the American co-ed fulfilling an internship in Egypt and trying to write her dissertation on the mysterious Queen of Sheba. Luc, the dashing Frenchman, Egyptologist and friend to the late Richard Lyon. Omar Zagouri, an undercover Israeli agent and his ex-girlfriend Mia. When all of these people converge on the place where the Queen of Sheba's burial place supposedly is, there will be fireworks, danger and much more!

This book is way different from any of the other books I've read by H. B. Moore. But not different in a bad way. I love that there is still a touch of romance, but there is way more action and adventure. I like the flow of the book, nearly every chapter from a different character's point of view, including the Queen of Sheba. I liked the characters, everyone of them brought a different viewpoint and depth to the story. I liked the way that it felt as if I was actually in the barrenness of the deserts of Egypt where the story takes place. I highly recommend this book and hope that there are going to be more of Omar Zagouri's adventures coming soon!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
