Beneath

Chalice Stratford is in the witness protection program, so she can no longer be herself, accomplished plastic surgeon, now she's started her first day as a docent in a French museum. There's a class of children in an hour before the museum opens when there is a disturbance made by three men. The men order everyone, including Chalice to get on the floor. But the teacher of the class cannot seem to comprehend the situation and she just keeps screaming. This focuses the attention of the men on her, and when it becomes obvious they mean to hurt her in front of her class, Chalice intervenes. This only serves to make her the hostage, a situation eerily similar to her prior life. But what she doesn't know is that one of the robbers is Omar Zagouri, undercover agent, will he allow his thugs to hurt Chalice?

This book is super short, it's a novella, and I was able to read it really quickly. I liked Chalice, but I really wished for more of her story. How can you not like the handsome and gallant Omar Zagouri?! I really liked the story, it was fast moving and even a little bit crazy. The only thing I wished for was more, what happens to the two of them? What had happened to Chalice before? If you are looking for a short, action packed story, look no further, you won't be disappointed!

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 …
