All the Finer Things




Married to one of the most lucrative and sought after 
plastic surgeons in SoCal, Megan Hamilton has it all. Her posh life, designer clothes, and stunning penthouse leave her wanting for nothing… or do they? Controlled by his obsessive pursuit of perfection, Doctor Matthew Hamilton will stop nothing short of breaking his young, spirited bride into a subservient trophy wife. But when parenthood enters their picture, the entire game changes. How far will Megan have to go to escape Matt's obsessive control and abuse? And how much will she have to lose before she gets there?

~Sometimes money costs too much ~


My Review: Megan is getting tired of being her husband, Matt's, punching bag. When he comes home late and beats her yet again she knows that it's time to leave. The next morning she packs up herself and her son Jacob leaving their lovely penthouse empty for Matt to come home to. She ends up in a small podunk place,Mountanside, where there's a house to rent, figuring that it will be the last place Matt will look for her, and tries to build a normal life for herself and her son. What she doesn't count on is falling in love with the place, and the people. But will Matt ever give up looking for her after vowing she'll pay for leaving him?

This was an awesome book. There are a few violent scenes, and I really like the way they were written by the author, as I was reading them it was obvious that they were going somewhere and that there was hope for Megan. I thought that the characters were really well written and it even seemed as though Mountainside with it's small town, homey feel was a character as well. I really liked Megan, she is a strong willed woman who is able to get herself and her young son out of a bad situation and into a better one, she's also willing to leave her pampered life behind and learn to do things she'd never dreamed of doing before. This is a great book that you won't regret picking up to read!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …
