Tying the Knot

About the book: When Athena Di Jasper accepts dashing bookstoreowner Grey Ronning’s proposal for marriage and they sit down to work out the details of the wedding, they discover it’s a daunting task. Most of Athena’s family lives in Greece, so Athena and Grey decide there’s only one thing they can do: take a cruise and have a destination wedding in Athens—and with their trademark show of support, the women of the Newport Ladies Book Club are going international with them.

The cruise turns out to be life changing for more than Athena and Grey. Aboard the ship, each bookclub lady unfolds a new chapter of her life. In this final installment of the beloved Newport Ladies Book Club series, discover what’s in store for Athena, Ruby, Ilana, Olivia, Victoria, Daisy, Paige, and Shannon. From mending marriages to overcoming addictions, the women of this remarkable group meet their triumphs and tragedies as they always have: together.

My Review: Athena is finally getting married! Only her mom won't be around to see it, and her dad would never remember it. Her only family lives in Greece or there's her friends in the Newport Ladies Book Club that have become just like family to her. When Ruby suggests getting married in Greece and having the entire book club there as part of a cruise, Athena thinks it's an amazing idea. Is it possible that everyone would be able to go. Turns out that with a little planning, and a little extra money everyone is able to go. But Athena and Grey aren't the only ones with life-changes happening on this trip, almost everyone has something big coming up. This book is full of fun and surprises for all of the characters of this beloved series.

I loved every minute of reading this book! It makes me sad to know that this is the end of the series, sometimes I want to climb into a book or series and live there with the characters that I've come to know so well and love, this is one of those series. I have loved reading about each of these amazing women, Athena, Ruby, Ilana, Olivia, Tori, Daisy, Paige and Shannon, they are all such individuals and I love all of them. I thought that this finale was really well written, I loved journeying with the characters on the cruise and eventually to Greece. I loved the little surprises that were hidden for each of the characters. I loved that I was able to learn what would be ahead for each of the characters. This is a really well written conclusion to one of my very favorite series.

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

You can find your own copy: Amazon - Deseret Book, also in stores


  1. I'm not familiar with this series but it sounds like a lot of fun.

  2. Thanks for the great review! It honestly makes me a little sad to see it come to end as well. It is one of the most amazing projects I've ever had the honor of working on. :)

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 …
