My review: I'm a sucker for great cookbooks! The Lion House is one of my very favorite places to eat in Salt Lake City and I love trying out new recipes so for me this was a no brainer to buy! I've made a few recipes out of this particular book and I was truly impressed. I made some Banana Bars that were out of this world and a recipe for Lemon Bars that is far better than any others I've tried. If you like to cook make sure to check out this great book!

I bought my own copy of this book, all opinions are my own.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
