Poaching Daisies

Penny has her dream job of working as a park ranger in Yellowstone National Park. She never dreamed that it would be this dangerous though! Her first week had started out smoothly, but then she was clearing a trail in the back country by herself when she smelled a strange smell. Penny looked around, trying to discover what the smell was and discovered a bear attractant. This was odd, but before she could really wrap her mind around it, Penny was being shot at. She stumbled backwards right over the dead body of a bear. This would freak anyone out, and Penny was no exception. She quickly ran down the mountain and ended up being picked up by a passing motorist, who takes her back to park headquarters. Penny explains what she saw and the rangers go to check out the situation, but when they get there, there is no dead bear and no attractant. Penny is automatically labeled as someone who calls wolf, but she knows what she saw and even has pictures to prove it. Unfortunately, her camera is missing. Penny's life quickly becomes precious, as someone is trying to kill her, to silence whatever they think she knows, she learns rather fast to trust no one. Will Penny be able to figure out just what's going on before someone kills her, or someone she loves?

This was a cute book, I liked the characters. Penny, and Iris are both really fun, quirky individuals. I liked the plot, I really had no idea that poachers would go after Yellowstone's bears when the bears in their own area were all killed. I liked the setting, I spent tons of time in Yellowstone as a kid, so it was almost like coming home for me. I can't wait to read more of Carole Warburton's books, and I really hope there will be more adventures for Penny and Iris!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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 …
