Healing Creek

Monet McLaughlin was not necessarily happy in her marriage, she knew that something big was coming. She was happy in her chosen career as a marriage counselor. But when one day a teenage mom showed up at her house claiming that her baby was the child of her husband, she knew that she could no longer live as she had been. Both her marriage and her career were over and it was time to move on. Now she runs a horse stable that specializes in therapy, and she's happy there. One day, a crew shows up to take some pictures for the cover of a book, and the male model is just gorgeous. She's kind of uncomfortable with the way he interacts with his female counterpart, after her experience with her husband all men are already liars, and the way this man makes Monet feel that he cares about the scantily clad young woman tells her that he must be one of the best liars of them all. But Nick, the male model, is intrigued with the lovely Monet, and he won't leave her alone. Is there anyway possible that Monet's heart can be healed, or that Nick will be able to prove to her that he's not a liar?

This was a cute, clean love story, just what I have come to expect from Jaclyn Hawkes. The characters are well written, and the plot had plenty of twists and turns, some of them very unexpected. I like that Jaclyn's characters show us that we can change, even if we feel that there is not a chance we will be able to. I really liked the feel of Healing Creek, it felt as though there was a healing power there. This is a fun book that you won't want to put down until the last page has been read! 

I was able to get this one for free from Amazon

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 …
