Harbor's End

Shanyn Tomlison is a young woman who's come to the small Oregon town of Harbor's End with a secret. She's a world renowned horse woman, but she's come to this small town to die. She's told no one of her diagnosis, and she's come to this small town so that she can be anonymous as she's getting ready to die. Her horse, Magic, is stabled at a stable owned by Keith Ellington's family, and he's unsure just why Shanyn seems familiar to him. Shanyn thinks that he's nice, and it is nice to have a few friends to spend time with, still she's afraid of getting too involved with anyone when she knows that she will end up dying. But with Keith and his friend's friendship, soon Shanyn feels that she will maybe be able to beat the odds and live instead of die. But then the symptoms begin in earnest. Will Shanyn survive to be able to fall in love?

This is a really cute book. It's kind of predictable, but sometimes that's just what you need. The characters were cute, the plot was easy to follow. I was able to read this book fairly quickly, and sometimes that's just what you need too!

This is a book that I bought a few years ago, but didn't get around to reading until now.  

With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope that you all have a great day giving thanks and eating pie. I too will be enjoying it with my family, so I won't be posting about any books!

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 …
