Blog Tour - The Throne of David



About the book: When a secret letter is delivered 32 years after it is written, it throws the ascendancy of the British throne into question and sets in motion an alliance that will do anything to suppress the truth. The search for the rightful heir uncovers the existence of a sacred stone, lost for centuries, and destined to reveal the true king. This high-stakes thriller leads readers on a deadly chase around the world, following clues through ancient history and eventually exposes the truth about the Throne of David. A mind-blowing mystery with an ending you have to read to believe!

My review: This book caught my attention from the very beginning and I didn't want to put it down until I had read every last word. It begins with three school boys who want to open a locker. What they find is amazing, a mailbag missing for more than thirty years. One of the letters, when delivered, sets in motion danger, and adventure for American David Lord. He is called by a friend to find out just who could be the heir for the British throne, and that friend is killed before he's able to reveal anything to David. David must unlock the mystery of the letter on his own, and some of it from a different continent. Danger lurks around every corner for him and anyone that he has had contact with. Will he be able to figure out this mystery before he is killed?

The plot of this book is so great! I love the way the author went about it. It's great how David has to figure out a way to investigate women in American while he himself is in England. I love that there were almost two parallel story lines running as David went about investigating the stone in the British Isles and his employee went about investigating in America. 

I love that there was a touch of romance to this one, but that's not what the whole book is about. It's a clean book, filled with mystery and suspense. The ending was amazing. I didn't see it coming at all. And neither did any of the characters. So great! Make sure you pick up a copy of this great book!

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

About the author: I have always been a voracious reader and sometime writer even while raising a large family of 10 children.  In fact, reading allowed me to escape for a few minutes (or longer) during the day while staying connected to the needs of our family.

Our youngest is now ten and the stories that have been stewing inside my head as I washed dishes, cooked dinner and helped with homework these last 25 years are bubbling up and out of my fingertips. My favorite books to read are Da Vinci Code, Pride and Prejudice, the scriptures, any of the Harry Potter books and of course, Good Night Moon.

It is said that about 80% of us feel we have a book we’d like to write. If I can do it, anyone can. That is the truth!

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.

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 …
