Kate Unmasked

About the book: Some secrets should stay dead and buried. Kate has spent her life searching for the secrets of her past--the secrets that began with her missing birth parents. After years of false hope and leads drying up, Kate finally lucks onto a promising one. 
Determined to find the truth, Kate travels to the gritty New Jersey shore. But what she finds is worse than she ever could have imagined.

My review: This book by Cindy Hogan is part of the Daring Hearts collection. Kate is just a normal high school girl, she has known all of her life that she was adopted by her parents, she's tried to find her birth family, but just keeps hitting dead ends. One day while cleaning out her family's attic she finds some pieces of her past that her parents had kept hidden from her that makes her able to finally figure out just what city she had originally come from. Her parents are dead set against Kate following these leads, but she chooses to do it anyway, without telling them. You'll never believe just what she stumbles upon in her search for her family.

I loved this book! I love the way that Cindy Hogan writes. Her plots are amazing, they're full of twists and turns that keep you guessing and up all night reading the book to find out just what is going to happen next. I was surprised multiple times about just where the whole story line was going. And the ending....um...she had better hurry up and write more to this series!

Cindy Hogan does characters really well too, I always feel as though they are real people that I know in her books. I love that, because it makes me care about the character and what will happen to them.

Can't wait for more books about Kate!

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…

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.

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 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 …
