A Timeless Romance Anthology: Sarah M Eden British Isles Collection

About the book: The SARAH M. EDEN BRITISH ISLES COLLECTION contains two brand new historical romance novellas A FRIEND INDEED and A HAPPY BEGINNING, as well as four hand-picked readers’ and reviewers’ favorites of Sarah’s popular Timeless Romance Anthology novellas. Readers will love this selection of six historical romance novellas set in the British Isles.


My review: Sarah M Eden is a master of writing British Isles romances! I loved every one of these novellas. I had planned to just read the two new ones, because I had already read the others. But once I got started reading them I didn't want to stop, so I read all of them again and enjoyed the experience just as much as I did the first time I read them, and maybe even a bit more! I'm going to just talk about the two newest novellas because I've previously talked about the others.

In A Friend Indeed, Caroline Downy feels as though she has been sold to the highest bidder because her family is poor and her father has been trying to marry her to a wealthy man. She has been betrothed to George Barrington, and old and dear family friend and she believes that his only motivation is to help her family's situation. She's never even imagined marrying for love and it hurts her heart to think the one man she's ever loved could have married her for money.

A Happy Beginning has us meeting Sophia Pemberton, she's a governess for a family in Scotland. The whole family is unkind and she doesn't have a friend in Scotland, until she meets Dermot Buchanan. He's the stable master with a secret life that no one knows anything about. At first he refuses to even be friends, but soon Sophia is able to break down his defenses. 

I loved both of these romances, the only wish I had was that they be longer! Sarah Eden has such a way with writing characters, you almost feel as though you knew them and I almost felt as though I was in the same place as them. If you love clean, amazing romance, these books are for you!

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. 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 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 …
