Just For Fins

Lily Sanderson knew that simply deciding to become the crown princess of her underwater kingdom would not solve all her problems, but she never imagined that it would actually make more problems. After living on land the last few years, things that should come easily to her, simple things like doing royal invitations properly, no longer come so easily and she's frustrated that she has to look to her younger cousin, Doe, for help with such simple things. At least Doe seems willing to help for once. Lily hopes that the plan that she and Tellin, a friend from her youth, made will be able to help his kingdom before it's too late. But what the two young Mer people thought would be a simple meeting turns into kings and queens from other lands telling the two that Tellin's kingdom isn't the only one suffering and leads to infuriating kings and queens and the meeting ending with them storming out. Lily must quickly come up with a new plan of action, and hope that the other kings and queens will support it and quickly. But what if the other kings and queens refuse to listen to her, a teenager and merely a princess?

This is a really cute story. I liked that it was clean. I liked that Lily has tons of responsibility and that she is able to do things in the way that she needs to, while still keeping her creativity. She's faced with several challenges and is able to overcome them in an admirable way. I also like that she is beginning to see Doe in a better light and that by the end of the book, they are able to become almost friends. Make sure you've read the first two books in this series first(Forgive My Fins and Fins are Forever) , or you will be completely lost! Otherwise, simply get lost in Lily's mer-world and enjoy yourself for a few hours while reading this book!

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 …
