Lock and Key

Carinna Channing has been hiding her sisters ever since their mother was killed by someone in their mob family. She's getting pretty tired of having to run from danger. She and her sister Bianca are finally settled in Virginia Beach, and trying to move on with their lives. But Carinna was sent a key by her father and she has no idea why she has it or what it goes to. She determines that the best way to find out would be to take her boyfriend, Jay, and go visit her father in prison. Unfortunately, her father is terrified for both of their lives and refuses to tell her, saying only that more information would be coming when she needed it, and that she already has everything she needs to figure it out. But, someone from the family knows where her dad is being kept and they are keeping a watch. Carinna has no idea that her mob family has followed her home to Virginia Beach, again.... She and Jay must figure out a way to keep her and Bianca protected and the key as well, that seems to be the key to everything.

I love these books about the Saint Squad. I really loved that this was a sequel to Code Word, I was hoping that Carinna and Jay's story wasn't over yet. I love the way that Traci Hunter Abramson writes, her characters are awesome. I love the way you feel like you get to know them. You never know what's going to happen next in the story, there were several times that left me guessing. You also never know if any of the characters are going to make it out of the story alive. I always have to hope, but never know for sure. I can't wait to read her next book!

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…

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 …
