In Plain Sight

About the book: Donte Noble has the life he's always dreamed of: a beautiful fiancee and a bright future as a doctor. But in a shattering turn of events, his future is ripped away. He is the number-one suspect in a murder case—and for everyone involved, including his fiancee, Donte is guilty until proven innocent. He's been framed. With the very real threat of conviction, he is left with no choice: he runs.

Living as a nomad, Donte crisscrosses the country, his new persona allowing him to hide in plain sight as he searches for an answer to his plight. That answer comes in the form of bestselling mystery writer Clive Granger, a man who believes the unbelievable—and as farfetched as Donte's story sounds, Clive is irrevocably drawn into the young man's quest to clear his name. As the ambitious duo embarks on their investigation, they begin to uncover a shocking trail of secrets, leading them to a killer who will stop at nothing to hide the truth...

My review: Clair Poulson is one of my very favorite mystery writers. His books are amazing. I love his characters, plot, and there is always an awesome twist at the end. This book is another great one. Donte is a really great character to be in the mind of. You can really sense his desperation to remain hidden so that he can't be arrested for a murder that he didn't commit. His sister Sara is great too, I love how hard she's had to work to help keep Donte hidden. Then there's Clive, a genuinely nice guy who happened to be able to help a man who appears to be down on his luck, and he's also a mystery novel writer and aspiring PI. I loved this book! The mystery was really well done, and I have to say I was really surprised at the end to find who the real murderer was. Oh and I forgot to mention there is also a touch of a sweet romance story thrown in to keep things interesting. And as always, this book is super clean. Make sure to check it out!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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 …
