Adrenaline Rush

Christy is now a full-fledged spy on her way to her first real case. This isn't just any case, Christy must make herself into an adrenaline junkie named Misha, infiltrate a group of Adrenaline junkies and get herself kidnapped so that the FBI can figure out just who has been kidnapping adrenaline junkies. First things first, she must convince the agents acting as her parents that she is a real spy, no matter how young she may be. It doesn't take Christy very long to infiltrate the group of kids that the FBI wants her to, it's really very easy once she attracts the attention of the attractive Dakota. What becomes harder is when she realizes that at the school she's been sent to in Oregon actually has two such groups, Madness, the one she's supposed to infiltrate and the Avengers. Christy must make the right choice about which group to join, or she won't be getting kidnapped. She also must make sure not to let her budding feelings get in the way of listening to what her sixth sense is telling her. But what she doesn't realize is that getting kidnapped is actually going to be the easy part!

I love these books about Christy. I love the way that Christy is portrayed as such a strong female character. She always knows what she wants and she works hard until she gets it. I love how well developed of a character she is. The plot of this book is kind of crazy, because Christy is constantly having to get out of her comfort zone and do what Misha would do and not what Christy would do. That gets her into some sticky situations, because Christy isn't a daredevil, but she is willing to do what she has to do. I liked the other characters in this one too, there is a whole cast of crazy daredevil characters in this one. And the villain in this book...wow! Not at all what I was expecting, he is super crazy. I do have to say I liked the ending, although that's all I'm going to say so as not to spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it yet. I really think that in order to understand this book, you need to read the Watched trilogy first, there are lots of things, especially about Christy that will make sense only after reading those. I can't wait for another Christy story, so please hurry Cindy!

Here's a link to buy your own copy on Amazon. I've also seen it in my local Costco.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
