Dark Memories

It's been over 30 years since 6 young children disappeared into the Seven Stars Mine and only 5 returned. In that time, the 5 surviving children have moved on with their lives. They've married and had families. But now, with the anniversary of the incident quickly approaching, the survivors are being murdered. First was Mandy Osgood, her husband found her dead and was suspected of murdering her based on their history of domestic violence. But when Ezra Rucker is murdered in a truly gory fashion, and it's discovered that both he and Mandy were survivors of the Seven Stars Mine incident, it becomes clear very quickly that the survivors are being targeted. It's up to Twin Forks Police Chief Cal Hunt to find and protect each of the 5 survivors before it's too late. In his quest to protect them he must face his own demons of having his wife die just 6 months before, and his fear of small enclosed spaces. He must determine what or who is killing these people before it's too late for them and for himself.

I have to admit that I was kind of scared of reading this book after reading the beginning. I knew that it was going to be a ghost story, and I'm not overly fond of being scared. But once I got into the book a little ways I realized that I was really enjoying it. For me it became less of a ghost story and more of a mystery, because I don't really believe in ghosts. I really liked Cal Hunt in this book, his is the character you really get to "know" the most, most of the book is in his point of view. I can't say that I really liked all of the survivors because some of them were just plain selfish, rude or mean, but their characters were well planned and written. I liked the plot, there was always some action happening either to the survivors or to Cal. I really liked the ending, even though it was pretty creepy. Jeffry Savage is a master at writing with just the right amount of mystery, and creepiness!

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 …
