Blog Tour - Betrayed Review and Giveaway


About the book: 1851: Niagara Falls, New York

The evidence has been well hidden—the Thayers were confident that it was safe from the clutches of the ruthless Murphy Gang. But is has all been in vain. The lawless group is closing in on the family homestead, and seven-year-old Penny is given only one instruction: Run.
After two long years eagerly anticipating her fiance's return, twenty-year-old Julia Barrett is ready to make a fresh start with Adam Wolcott—even if it means putting her dream of traveling west with the Mormons on hold. But when Adam's return is overshadowed by the unexpected arrival of a young orphan girl in desperate need of help, Julia is drawn into a dangerous mystery that will threaten all she holds dear.

Charged with the protection of little Penny, Julia quickly finds herself relying on the help of Tom Harrison, an endearing young man who has long admired her from afar. Torn between two suitors, Julia soon uncovers a shocking trail of corruption and deceit—a discovery that pulls her inescapably into the race to locate telling evidence that Penny's family gave their lives to protect.

My review: Penny and her family are happily living their lives, when one night their home is invaded. Penny's mother sends her to the woods to hide and the rest of the family is killed, leaving Penny alone in the world, being hunted by some of the very people that should protect her. Meanwhile, Julia has been waiting for her fiance, Adam, to return for two long years, but when he does things feel a bit off for her. It doesn't help that Tom Harrison has arrived in town bringing word of Julia's brother Jame's death. Julia has dreamed of a young girl that she must protect and when Penny arrives at their home she knows that she is the girl. But just who does she need protection from? 

I really enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed Julia, she is kind of conflicted through the book, she knows that she has intended to marry Adam, but then there's Tom Harrison. Not to mention that her parents are going to be headed West with the Mormon Church and she knows that Adam won't be. I also liked that she and Penny both had dreams about things and those dreams proved to be prophetic, even though they were a woman and a child respectively. I felt really sad for Penny, her whole family murdered, and knowing that the killers are coming for her next. Julia's family was great too, but I had to admit that I didn't trust Adam, it kind of seemed as though he was trying to take Julia away from her family the whole book. I was really not expecting the ending and just who was after Penny and her family, wow, that took me by surprise! This book is full of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat until you've read the very last word.

I was sent a 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 …
