Checking Out

Keene Tempest is finally living his ideal life. He's going to school to get his criminal justice degree and working part time for the LAPD, nothing could make him happier. But life is about to change drastically for Keene. His mother dies and all of his siblings insist that Keene come to the small Wyoming town where she lived and run the small hotel that she was running before her death. Keene really doesn't want to, but his siblings convince him that it was his mother's last wish, and who could refuse that, at least for a while. His first day he meets the lovely Officer Chaille Donovan and gets his first clue that his mother's death was anything but natural. This makes him curious, who would have wanted his sweet mother to be dead? Uncertain, he knows that he's going to have to start looking into some things, which works out really well when the police chief offers him a part time job. But when his brother, Sean, is murdered in the hotel, Keene knows somehow that someone out there is after his family and that someone will stop at nothing to see them all dead. Will he be able to protect his family, himself, and the lovely Chaille from harm?

I love Clair Poulson's books! He has such a way with writing mysteries that you never know just which direction the bad guy is going to come from next. This book was no different, and what added even more to the fun was that there were multiple bad guys and you never knew just which direction one was going to come from or even which of them it would be. That made it so that I was guessing as to who the killer was right up until the last page. I love the way this author is able to add just a hint of romance to the books, so that it's not all death, and suspense. I can't wait to read his next book, I hope that he keeps them coming!

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…

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 …
