Glimmer of Hope

Miranda Harford is a young woman at peace with her current situation. She's happily living in her country home with her grandfather, taking her healthful walks and eating her country diet. But she gets home from one of her walks one day only to discover that her home is overrun with luggage and servants that she has never seen before. Things become very clear when her estranged husband, Carter, appears and informs her that he's going to be having a house party at her home. Miranda hasn't seen or heard from Carter since he left her home from a promised London trip. She feels that he abandoned her, but what she doesn't realize is that he also felt abandoned. Both Miranda and Carter are unable to see past their own pain, but they know that for the sake of the house party guests they must put their differences aside and try to at least be the picture of a happily married couple. They quickly learn that there has been a great misunderstanding between them, but is it possible to even begin to fix three long years of thinking the other didn't care?

I LOVE Sarah Eden's books! She is an amazing regency romance writer. I really enjoyed this book of hers as well. I like the characters, Miranda is such a gentle, kind woman, I love the way that Sarah portrays that through her interaction with children. I wanted to not like Carter, but in spite of myself, I did and he earned it by the end of the book. I really enjoyed the story, usually Sarah's books are about the falling in love, I really enjoyed that this one was about fixing a problem that was already there and Miranda and Carter learning to trust and show love for each other again. I can't wait to read more of Sarah Eden's books!

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I'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 …
