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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it'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 …
