Witch Song

Brusenna is a young untrained witch living with her mother near a human village. She's tired of always being the joke to the humans. One day, she's accused of stealing and threatened by the merchant to be put into the stocks, but she's saved just in time by a woman she's never met before. Brusenna is uncertain what she should say to the woman, but when the woman knows Brusenna's mother's name and demands to be taken to her mother, Brusenna decides to obey even though she has no idea who the woman is. When the woman talks to her mother, Brusenna decides to eavesdrop and learns that the end of the witches is near, the woman is also a witch and angry that Brusenna has not been trained. Her mother refuses to help the woman and sends her on her way, but as soon as she learns for herself the truth of the matter, she leaves Brusenna alone to go to help with whatever the problem may be. Brusenna doesn't want to be left alone, and tries to avoid town for as long as she possibly can, but eventually she needs salt and she's tricked into revealing her location to hunters. She is able to escape them...for now, but they haven't given up hunting her. Brusenna eventually discovers that the rest of the witches, including her mother have been taken captive by a traitor. Now it's up to Brusenna to defeat the traitor and save all of the witches. But she's only an untrained young girl, will she be able to defeat the traitor and save them all?

This was a cute book, I did have a hard time getting into the story at first. But when I did get into it, I really liked it. I liked Brusenna, she's loyal and brave. I liked the way she goes about defeating the traitor, even though she has no idea if it will really work or not. I am excited to read the next book in this series!

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 …
