Blog Tour - Played for a Fool Review and Giveaway



About the book: Three years ago, the small town of Britteridge was rocked by the senseless murder of Gail Ludlum. Now the people most affected by the tragedy have returned to the place where it all began, and the scene is set for the perfect revenge . . .

Megan O’Connor’s life was shattered when she was unwittingly drawn into a kidnapping plot that ultimately led to the murder of an innocent woman. Though the road to redemption has been long, she’s finally found happiness with her recent engagement to a wonderful man, a pillar of the community. But amid the chaos of wedding planning, the return of Gail Ludlum’s son to Britteridge sets in motion a disturbing sequence of events. Soon Megan finds herself the victim of a series of cruel deceptions that indicate one thing: her past mistakes have not been forgiven or forgotten. As the mischief escalates to dangerous levels, it becomes clear that someone is determined to avenge Gail’s death. And he won’t rest until he’s taken a life for a life.

My review: This book is way suspenseful! It's about Megan, she's a young woman who lives in the town of Britteridge.  She let her twin sister, Kristen, talk her into helping her kidnap a young woman. Megan ended up saving the young woman's life, but there are many people that just won't let it go. Now Kristen is in prison and Megan is trying to move on with her life. But someone has decided that Megan must pay for what she did and they are set on making her life miserable. Can Megan figure out who is after her before it's too late?

I remember reading Fool Me Twice, the book that precedes this one, but I can't remember all the details and that was kind of bugging me the whole time I was reading this one. I'll have to see if I can re-read it! This book can stand alone and make perfect sense, the author did a great job making sure of that. The plot is super suspenseful. It's one of those books where you want to scream at the person to not go into that room! I love the way that the author made it so the reader knows what's going on before the characters do. 

I thought that the characters were really well written. I liked Megan and there's enough other characters that you are able to see the events through that you really get a good picture of who everyone is and what's going on.

This is one of those books that you won't want to put down, it's really amazing!

I was sent a 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 …
