Veils and Vengeance

About the book: When wedding planner, Adrielle Pyper, goes to Hawaii to orchestrate a destination wedding, she isn't prepared for what she finds. 
After the trauma of her previous event, the beautiful isle of Kauai is the perfect place for Adri to unwind and do what she does best – plan. She even lets herself indulge in the attention of the groom’s handsome brother. But just when everything seems to be perfect, an afternoon snorkeling trip turns to murder when Adri discovers the body of a young woman. 
Shaken, but unable to let it go, Adri’s sleuthing leads her into more danger than she could imagine. When a number of “accidents” threaten her own life, it soon becomes apparent that someone will do anything to keep Adri from interfering with their vengeance.

My review: I loved this book! Adri is a great character and it's fun to be able to see things from her perspective. She's still trying to recover from dating someone who was actually trying to kill her, so it was interesting to see what she did and how she felt when Jon was interested in her. And then Luke showed up and he was obviously jealous of Jon, that made things fun. I love that this book had a touch of romance in it for Adri, but nothing really serious.

This book has a big mystery of just whose body it was that Adri found, and she spends the whole book trying to figure out who she was and why she was killed. This puts Adri and those around her into many dangerous situations that keep the plot moving right along and the reader more and more interested to see just what will happen next.

And the setting...Hawaii...it's been nearly 100 degrees here the last several days and it probably will be for the next week or more, so Hawaii sounds better and better all the time. I was grateful to be able to escape there at least while I was reading this book!

You probably want to make sure that you've read Diamond Rings are Deadly Things first so that you can know Adri's background. This one could be read alone, but you might be confused if you haven't read that one first. I can't wait for more of these Wedding Planner Mysteries from Rachelle Christensen!

I was sent an e-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…

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 …
