Warrior's Moon Medieval Historical Romance by Jaclyn M. Hawkes   Never in all the kingdom has there been a more brave and protective champion. Nor such a loyal and capable maiden.

My Review: When she was 3 years old, Chantaya's family was moving in order to get out of a horrible situation for her mother Isabella. But the small family was trying to move everything in a small cart in the middle of a horrible thunderstorm. A flash of lightning hit the cart sending it over a cliff. Luckily, Chantaya and her mother survived, unluckily her father and unborn sibling did not. Chantaya's mother was completely unable to care for her for a very long time, and eight-year-old Peyton Wolfgar stepped in. The small girl refused to leave his side for months. That relationship grows and turns into Peyton rescuing Chantaya from her own folly many times. And eventually it blossoms into love for both Peyton and Chantaya, but he wants to be a knight and has no idea how he can care for Chantaya and help his king and kingdom at the same time. She doesn't want to hold him back, so with many tears he heads for the training that all knights receive many hours away from his beloved. But can Peyton know the dangers in store for young Chantaya. Can Chantaya know that she will be called to sacrifice for the king and kingdom as well as Peyton. Will love survive all?

I really enjoyed this story. The plight of young Chantaya really tugged at my heartstrings. I was amazed at the strength of her character. Chantaya grows into an amazing young woman, willing to sacrifice love, her family and her life in order to protect her kingdom. Peyton is of a very similar character, but he's much conflicted, because he loves Chantaya more than anything and doesn't want her sacrificing herself for anything. There are also great supporting characters, Isabella and the humble knight, Sir Mordecai. The plot is filled with danger, adventure and of course romance. You won't want to put this amazing book down until you've read the very last word!

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 …
