Blog Tour and Giveaway - Love Unexpected: A Storybook Romance



About the book: They say a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but as mistaken identities abound, three heroines will put this age-old adage to the test! Love Unexpected: A Storybook Romance is a heartwarming collection of short stories that begs the question: can true love really conquer all?

Storybook Romance by Melanie Jacobson
New York City book editor Ellie Hanover has discovered a groundbreaking manuscript that may be just what she needs to save her job. But when her anonymous correspondence with the author begins to develop into more than a professional relationship, Ellie is left wondering if her real find is actually Mr. Right.


He Loves Me Not by Jennifer K. Clark
When Kenedee spies her boss leaving flowers on her desk, she’s swept into a whirlwind of infatuation. If only he didn’t have a girlfriend . . . Undeterred, the young woman enlists in the scheme her employer’s brother has put in motion for the company’s sake in hopes that she can win over the man of her dreams. But even foolproof plans can go awry.

Fools of Us All by Julie Daines
The course of true love is never smooth, as Jane discovers when a case of mistaken identity results in a date with the man she’s admired from afar for years. But she knows all too well that masquerading as her twin sister can only go on for so long before the truth comes out.


My review: This book is perfect for all of you romance lovers out there. The romances are amazing, I loved all three of them! This book has three short stories in it. They are all well-written, fun, easy to read romances. I loved that they are all quick and easy to read. They all had something that I loved about them.

I loved Ellie in Storybook Romance, I loved the way that she tried to keep her love for job, even with the rude new boss trying to take it away at every turn. The whole romance of that one was so cute and sweet. You really can't go wrong with a Melanie Jacobson romance. 

I loved Kenedee in He Loves Me Not. Her job is in jeopardy for a whole different reason. But I loved the courageous way that she went after life. It was kind of cute how in the whole story she was trying to get her boss to care for her the same way that she thought she cared for him. Loved this one too!

I also liked Jane in Fools of Us All. Wow, Jane has had a hard life, with an abusive dad, and having to care for her mom by herself knowing that her mom doesn't really remember anything about her current life. I loved her compassion. This one is a twin story, where the one twin is mistaken for the other, and isn't able to correct the assumption. I've always loved those kind of stories and wanted a twin for that very reason! 

Don't miss this fun book!

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


About the authorsMelanie Bennett Jacobson is an avid reader, amateur cook, and champion shopper. She consumes astonishing amounts of chocolate, chick flicks, and books. After meeting her own husband on the Internet, she is now living happily married in Southern California with her growing family and a series of doomed potted herbs.

Jennifer K Clark grew up in the small mountain town of Monticello, Utah where she is proud to say that she passed all of her English classes, and with fairly good grades too. At the time her writing aspirations didn’t go much beyond turning in her next essay on time, however, she did have a passion for fictional tales and inherited her father’s love of storytelling. Convincing neighborhood kids that their backyards lay over ancient ruins and stories to back it all up was part of daily routine. Made up languages, haunted houses, and tales of jungle adventures were also widely known among her friends. After graduating college, her interest in writing was sparked when she shared one of her made up stories with her sister, Stephonie Williams. Together they wrote their first novel, Mark of Royalty. Since then, Jennifer has fallen in love with the art of writing and has set out to learn the craft of combining the written word with storytelling. With veneration for the Renaissance time period, Jennifer loves to study history and attends festivals depicting that particular era whenever she can. She also finds the study of war strategies irresistible and enjoys reading about the great battles that have shaped history, using them as inspiration in creating the battle scenes in her own books. In her spare time she spends a lot of time with the animals on her farm and still takes time to spin yarns with her kids and other youth in her community.

Julie Daines was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and was raised in Utah. She spent eighteen months living in London, where she studied and fell in love with English literature, sticky toffee pudding, and the mysterious guy who ran the kebab store around the corner.

She loves reading, writing, and watching movies—anything that transports her to another world. She picks Captain Wentworth over Mr. Darcy, firmly believes in second breakfast, and never leaves home without her verveine.

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
