Victoria's Promise

Tori Winters loves her job as the assistant director of reality show Vows. She gets to deal with all kinds of aspects of taking care of both the bachelor and the bachelorettes in a beautiful mansion. But the bachelor on this edition of Vows is a different story, Chris Caine is the perfect southern gentleman and pretty soon even Tori has fallen for him, even though she signed a contract that is supposed to keep her away from that type of thing. It would be bad enough for Tori to be harboring such feelings, but when becomes very obvious that Chris also has feelings for Tori, she knows that she is going to have to do something drastic. She tries to shut herself away from the situation and lock Chris out of her heart, but every time one of the girls gets special attention from him it breaks her heart. Tori must decide whether she will follow her heart or her contract.

I really love this series! Tori was an amazing character, she felt so real, and I could feel her pain as she watched Chris with the other girls. I loved seeing this plot line through Tori's perspective, she had quite a different perspective from Ruby and Shannon. I love how in this series you get to meet some amazing women and then see the situation through several sets of eyes. It doesn't take long to realize just how inter-connected everyone is and that we really need to be careful just how we think about others and not judge them, because we really don't know their situation and what motivates their actions. Such a good reminder for me! Can't wait to read the last two books in this series, I know I'll be sad when it's over.

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 …
