The Guy Next Door

29 year old Eva's life is just about perfect. She loves teaching Kindergarten in small town Ephraim, Utah. She loves that she can live close to her sister's family, all the family she has left since her parents died. And she really loves that she is engaged to Sean Langley. What's not to love?? Just the little things, things like Sean picking out her clothes, their wedding china without her, and his creepy friend Neil. Still things are good for Eva, she even gets a new niece, Melody. But when a tragic accident takes both Eva's sister and her husband, leaving Melody with Eva, things take a turn for the worse. Eva knows without a doubt she needs to be Melody's mother, but Sean refuses to have anything to do with the baby, leaving Eva uncertain where they stand and if they are even ever going to get married. Eva takes the chance to lean on her kind, caring next-door neighbor Peter and knows she could have feelings for him, but there's a great deal of mystery about him. How will Eva ever choose which way she should go?

I really enjoyed this book! I didn't want to put it down. I loved Eva's character, and Peter. I loved how real they seemed. Sean was really a jerk, but that author did a great job of showing it. I really enjoyed the plot for the most part, but the tension at the end kind of seemed rushed. I really hope that there are more books about Eva and Peter so that I can know what happens to them!

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 …
