The Grecian Princess

Isabelle Webb and her friends have had lots of adventures trying to find all three of the legendary jewels of the princess. When they are together, according to legend, they will reveal a fantastic treasure. Isabelle's group of friends are not the only one searching for the jewels, and the other groups don't play nice as evidenced by Thaddeus Sparks when he stole the 2nd jewel from Isabelle. Isabelle and her friends must reach the beautiful isle of Greece, find the third jewel, steal back the second jewel and destroy all three of them before any of the other groups get there first. But that is easier said than done, especially when seasickness claims several of their group, and they really have no idea where they should start. They luckily meet a woman that is able to help Alice realize her potential in finding the jewel. But will Alice be able to find the jewel before it's too late.

This book was kind of slow for me plot-wise. I like the characters and I've read the previous books, so I knew I was going to finish reading the series. I do like the characters and some of the things they are able to do in 1860's Greece are really cool. I really did enjoy the feeling of Greece that was in this book, part of that could have been from needing a vacation really badly! All in all, I enjoyed this series, but make sure you read them in order or you will be completely lost!

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 …
