About the book: Just when Eliza thought she had her future all planned out, her heart is thrown a major curveball. With Luke two months away from returning home, she meets a handsome stranger who makes her question which path will lead to her happily ever after. 

Relying on help from her unusual dreams, Eliza must make a choice that will affect her future forever. . . So how will she know which path is right?

My review: I love the way that Holly Wood writes! She does a really great job with the characters, the romance aspects and the story line. This book follows Eliza as she tries to navigate her first semester of college, all the while waiting for her missionary, Luke. I love that the book shows the ups and downs of life for Eliza, she's excited for Luke to come home, but just like in real life, things happen. Things like not getting a letter for a really long time, or the crazy boy sitting behind her in class not leaving her alone, meeting a new boy and feeling an attraction to him. I really liked the way this book showed Eliza trying to learn to get her own answers from the Spirit about just what she should do about dating Sawyer and waiting for Luke. 

I loved that her Grandma is back and teaching her new lessons, this time about Relief Society. I wish that as I was transitioning from Young Women to Relief Society I would have had someone to teach me the same lessons! It would have mad the transition so much easier. 

There are some really fun moments in this book, I love the prank war that goes on between the boys apartment and Eliza's. So funny! It reminded me of my own college apartment days as I was reading it. 

I love that I was able to read another book about Eliza, if you haven't read Invaluable, go find it! Then make sure to read this one too!

Bought this book from Deseret Book.

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 …
