Taylor Lynn

About the book: Determined not to repeat the same mistakes as her mother, Taylor Cole left her husband with their toddler in tow fourteen years ago and vowed never to return to Merryton. Now she is finally ready to face her demons and put the past and her ex-husband behind her, but to do that she and her daughter must return to the place that haunts her memories. A place where she lost not only the love of her life, but her childhood hopes and dreams.

When they move back, Taylor can’t seem to remain apathetic toward her ex-husband or his nine-year-old daughter. She discovers that maybe all wasn’t as it seemed so many years ago. And maybe—just maybe—she and her ex-husband need each other more now than they ever have before. But can the exes put the past behind them and find a way to forgive each other? Or will they let past mistakes and misunderstandings keep them from future happiness?

Return to Merryton and join Taylor and Easton on their journey, and catch up with old friends you grew to love in Jessie Belle.

My review: I was super excited to get to read this one! Jennifer Peel is one of my very favorite authors and I loved Jessie Belle, I've been eagerly anticipating this one.

I loved everything about this one! I loved Taylor, I thought it was so fun how she was always referencing the "How to Live Near Your Ex" brochure when things didn't go the way that she thought that they should have with Easton, and that happened all the time. Taylor expected that her daughter, Ashley, would be the one dealing with Easton, but that's not really what happens. Easton's daughter with his second wife, Emmy, really needs a mom at this point and by default, Taylor ends up being the woman in her life that treats her like a mom would. I loved the way that Taylor doesn't really want to care for the little girl because of the situation, but her caring nature won't let her not. She ends up doing all sorts of things to help Emmy.

I liked Easton too, he's a character that we got to know a little bit in Jessie Belle, so I might have been a little biased from that. He's a hard working doctor who's gotten divorced for the second time. He needs help with his daughter Emmy and that's part of the reason that Taylor and Ashley moved to Merryton, so Ashley can care for Emmy during the day while Easton is working.

I loved that the whole cast of Jessie Belle is back in this book. I have to say that it seemed like Cheyenne almost stole the show! I'm hoping that Cheyenne is going to get a book and a romance soon too!

I loved the romance of this book, sort of a second chance for a first love. And I loved that it's cute, clean and fun! Can't wait for more.

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…

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 …
