One Classic Latin Lover, Please

Tierney is getting ready to get married, unfortunately, she's already figured out that it's the wrong thing to do. But her parents, especially her mom would kill her if she dumped her fiance and moved on. She is having her bridal shower with all of her friends, and every one of them got her something scandalous from Victoria's Secret that she will never allow her fiance to see her in. But then she gets the best present ever! Her brother, Alec, sent her a great big box. When Tierney opens the great big box, she finds the most handsome man ever wearing an amazing tuxedo standing in front of her. The man asks her to tango, and creates the perfect situation for her to escape the party and her engagement before delivering Alec's message. The message is "Run." Tierney knows that Alec is right, she knows she can't marry her fiance, and that the only way out is for her to run, so she does. She runs to Alec and the small town of Leavenworth, never dreaming to see the handsome Latin Lover again, but little does she know that he lives in the same town and he's best friends with Alec. But will Tierney be able to get the handsome Latin Lover to fall in love with her?

This was a really cute book. I especially liked the beginning scenes. I liked Tierney, Alec, Rome and Celeste. Their characters were really well done, and there was some originality with them and their town. I do think though, that the way that Marcia Lynn McClure's books are is not really original. There is always a heroine character, she always makes a mistake that puts herself in danger from a villain character, and then the hero character swoops in and saves her. Maybe it's time for a different plot. 

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'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 …
