Trouble's on the Menu: A Tippy Canoe Romp - With Recipes

Hallie Stone's estranged husband has died and he never updated his will, so everything he owned is now hers. Hallie must travel to the small town of Tippy Canoe, Montana to take care of his store, home and who knows what else. Hallie is an artist from Malibu, completely unaccustomed to driving in the snow, and as she makes her way to her hotel in the blizzard she knows that she's hit something, but hopefully not someone. Unfortunately, she's run over a woman riding a scooter. And that's just the start of her crazy journey to take care of her husband's estate and find out more about herself. Hallie soon realizes that life in a small Montana town can be just a bit silly. Things like autistic twins living in her basement, and renters paying with hay or milkshakes seem to just come with the territory. All Hallie wants to do is wrap up her business and get back to her art in Malibu, but things are never that easy. Hallie stumbles upon a mystery in Tippy Canoe and also upon the very good looking single mayor. Will Hallie be able to solve the mystery before it's too late?

This book was so funny! I loved the hilarious town full of hilarious people and situations. I loved Hallie, trying to make sense of all the insanity around her. I almost felt as though I was in this silly town myself as I was reading. I loved that there are a bunch of recipes included in the end of the book. You need to read this fun and quirky book!

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 …
