Framed

On a fine, normal morning Adriana Chambers is leaving her neighborhood when she spots a man obviously needing help changing his flat tire. Adriana is a whiz at car repairs, so she stops to help. The man happily accepts her help, but she is unable to get the tire off with out a screwdriver and the man doesn't have one. Adriana returns to her house, but gets caught up in a phone call and errand for her mom, and by the time she gets back to the man, it's only to see him driving away with what looks like a passenger in the passenger seat. At the same time her lawyer neighbor is discovered dead in his home office, so the tire man becomes very suspicious to Adriana. He was also suspicious to the police, who find him at the local 
7-11 with a blood covered screwdriver in the backseat and a wild story about a stranger he'd given a ride to who disappeared into the 7-11. Adriana knows there was no way the man murdered the lawyer, so she goes to the police detective on the case, Brad Osborne, and tells him her suspicions. Brad quickly understands her reasons and agrees with her, but he's the only one in the office that believes the man could be innocent. Things quickly get dangerous for Adriana, whoever really did murder her neighbor is now out to get her, will she be able to escape the danger before it's too late?

Clair Poulson's mysteries are some of my very favorite! His characters always seem as though they could be real people. His mysteries are always creepy, I'm always waiting for the bad guys to step out of the shadows and scare me, I never know quite what's going to happen. I loved the story, and I was really surprised at the ending of this one, I never would have guessed how it ended! Can't wait for his next mystery!

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…

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 …
