Fools Rush In

Bella Rossi is thrilled to finally have the reigns of the family wedding business. She's happy to make some changes and add themed weddings to the offerings. Almost as soon as she adds them, the first one is booked, a "Boot-Scootin'" wedding. It sounds like a fabulous idea at first, but Bella's family is Italian and they only listen to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, she's got to find a DJ who knows about country music and fast in order for her first wedding to not be completely ruined. As luck would have it, she overhears a phone conversation in her uncle's pizza restaurant that gives her a lead on a DJ who does all of that. But Bella's life can't be quite that easy. What she ends up with is the most incredibly handsome man, Dwayne Neeley Jr, or DJ. Unfortunately he is a carpenter and has no idea how to run a DJ system. But he's willing to learn and Bella is more than happy to spend time with him picking out the perfect country songs for the wedding, which he is an expert at. Bella is sure she's falling in love, but there's always something happening with her great big Italian family, and she has no idea if Dwayne could ever learn to love her back in spite of her family. One thing is for certain, there will be plenty of misunderstandings and comical situations before this wedding is over!

This was really a fun story. I like Bella and her quirky, crazy family, each one with such individual issues. I liked Dwayne too, it was kind of interesting how he and his seemingly normal family clashed with Bella's. It was quite a contrast! I liked the plot, I thought that was really well done, it seemed like there was always something crazy going on. I really liked the way each chapter is named after one of either Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin's songs, and I really liked the way that tied in to her uncle's pizza restaurant. This book had tons of personality, it's clean, it's fun. You should definitely check it out! Now I need to read the rest of Bella's adventures.

I was able to get this one for free from Amazon as one of the daily deals.

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…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.

About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
