A Trusting Heart

Megan Garrett has come a long way from her high school days as a blond head cheerleader. She's learned to stop taking hair, make up and clothing advice from her mother and simply follow her heart. She's a real estate agent now, not a terribly successful one, but one who really loves homes and finding people who can also love the homes. It's time for her 10 year high school reunion and she doesn't really want to go. She knows that she will have to face her ex-fiance Dylan and his wife, her ex-best friend Taffie, and she really doesn't want to, especially not in her outfit that screams Wal-Mart special. But somehow she ends up at the hotel where the event is to be held. And the first people that she sees are, of course, Dylan and Taffie. And Dylan especially is not nice. But there is someone there to stand up for her this time, Trevor Riley, former seminary president. He surprises her by kissing her in front of everyone, and she surprises him right back by slapping his face, but deep down Megan knows that there could be something there. Trevor is rich though, something that she's never wanted to deal with again because of her family. Will Megan be able to see through his money and his controlling ways to the man underneath?

I know that I read this book back when it first came out, but I love Shannon Guymon's books and I've read them several times apiece. This book is one of my favorite love stories. It has all the elements of a great story, beautiful but hurt girl, handsome rich guy, and a great big problem to be overcome. The ending will not surprise you, but it's in how Megan and Trevor get to that ending that will be the surprise.  You really cannot go wrong with reading any of Shannon Guymon's books!

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…

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 …
