Through Love's Trials

About the book: Kenneth King, a successful Arizona attorney, finds himself facing the most difficult trial of his life—and it’s not in a courtroom. He’s asked to deliver a mysterious disk to Emma James an attorney in Utah, but as soon as Kenneth agrees to it, his life is turned upside down. His home is broken into, he’s shot at, and an attorney at his firm is murdered. Is he next?

Kenneth contacts Emma, and is drawn to her immediately, but she is a strong-willed single mother who doesn’t want anything to do with the disk—or with him. However, when Emma suffers a brutal assault that is possibly linked to the disk, Emma’s father, an agent in the Canadian Security Intelligence Service steps in to help Kenneth protect her and find out who wants them dead.

The tension builds as Kenneth and Emma find themselves in a race against time to stop an attack on North America’s defenses. Will the Canadian government be able to help them before the United States is attacked? Will Kenneth and Emma let down their defenses enough to make it through love’s trials?

My Review: Kenneth can't believe his good luck when he's told by his boss, Paul James, that he's going to be made partner in his law firm after only a year of working there. But Paul seems to be worried about something, and he asks Kenneth to do him a favor, deliver a disk to his ex-wife when he's on his vacation to Utah. Kenneth thinks that is really strange, but he's willing to help out. Things get even weirder the next morning when Kenneth goes into the office for just a minute and finds Paul dead in Kenneth's office, shot execution style, but he doesn't worry too greatly about it until he goes home. There Kenneth is attacked by a man with a gun. This can't be just a coincidence, can it? When he tries to deliver the disk to Emma, he finds a single mother who really wants to not have anything to do with her ex-husband, even to look at the disk, but when she keeps running into Kenneth she changes her mind. But bad things seem to follow the disk, can Kenneth and Emma keep each other and Emma's young daughter safe?

This is an action filled story. I really liked that there was always something to try to figure out, and I really liked that I was completely unable to get the suspects right. I liked Emma and Kenneth, although Emma's dad really bugged me. I liked that it was a clean, suspenseful book with a touch of romance. Can't wait to read more books in this series!

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 …
