Blog Tour - Lady Helen Finds a Song Review and Giveaway



About the book: Spring 1813
The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement int he unusual locale. it is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.

Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she's dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor o the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?

My review: I LOVED this book! I loved the way the things that Lady Helen sees are well enough described that I felt as though I too was in India. I loved the setting, the plot, the monkey and the romance of the whole situation!

Lady Helen is accompanying her mother and her mother's new husband, Jim, on his latest military assignment to India. She's uncertain just what she will find when they arrive but is delighted with all of it. The country is beautiful and she is quite taken with the people and the customs that she is able to see as well. I loved the way she still loves these things, even when those around her (the annoying Fanny in particular) tell her that these people are heathens - that nothing they do could ever be beautiful.

I loved the way that Lady Helen came to care for those that she met there, there is a scene where she meets the woman who basically amounts to the queen and Helen is gracious and kind. I loved the way that she truly came to be a friend of this young woman and the easy way she came to care for many of the natives of India. Lady Helen is one of my favorite characters ever!

I loved Michael too! I love the way that he sees Lady Helen for the first time and falls head over heels for her, even though he thinks there's no way she could ever feel the same. I love the way he sacrifices himself later, thinking that he's doing something for the woman that he loves, even when that proves to be incorrect. And who wouldn't want to have a pet monkey?!

Jennifer Moore has written another amazing regency romance and you won't want to miss this great book!


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 …
