Blog Tour - Undercover Target Review and Giveaway


About the book: When Matt Knight left his career as a spay to marry the woman of his dreams, he thought he was in for a life of domestic bliss. But after adopting a baby girl and her teenage brother from China, he finds that being a father comes with its own set of challenges—problems for which his work as an antiterrorism agent did nothing to prepare him. Or so he thought. When a Scout campout with his teenage son takes a terrifying turn, Matt realizes his past and present have just collided, with devastating consequences.

Deep in the rugged mountains of Utah, a band of mercenaries lies in wait. The target: Matt Knight. Their orders come from a dangerous enemy from the former agent's past, one who is bent on destroying everything Matt holds dear. While struggling to protect his son and the other Scouts, Matt is horrified to learn the full extent of the plan: his wife and baby have been taken too. Now the agent-turned-family-man must draw on his years of combat training in an explosive battle to save those he loves—or die trying.

My review: This book caught my attention from the very beginning. I love the way that the author writes. There were several parts that caused me to laugh out loud, I loved the way that humor was included in this type of book, it's especially helpful in a tense scene.

I liked Matt, he's an ex-antiterrorism agent, doing his best with his family. He's got an amazing wife, Hope, who always knows just what should be done. He's got a 15 year-old adopted son, Peng, who is an escape artist and that Matt really doesn't understand. And then there's sweet 2 year-old Jin. He's the adviser in the teacher's quorum, to a group of 4 boys including Peng. Matt has a unique sense of humor and he uses humor to get himself through sticky situations.

Peng was great too. I loved the way he was always watching out for Jin and his best friend, Shi Shi. I liked the way he wanted to get away from everyone because he felt like he was not good for anyone around him, but instead of running away he stayed to keep all of his promises to his birth mother and also to his adopted mother.

I also loved the man that Matt worked with in the teacher's quorum, Ron, he is a great guy and he always tries to get those boys to grow in anyway that he can. I loved how he was able to trick the bad guys.

The plot of this book is full of action, adventure, and subterfuge. Holy cow! I loved the way that there was action after action and I had no idea just what was going to come next. I loved the way that the villain in this book new pretty much everything about the hero and he was able to goad him just a little bit.

Make sure to grab your own copy of this great book! 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Frank Holdaway has been a fan of action thrillers from the time his father handed him an Alistair McLean novel at the age of ten. Since then, he has delighted in finding a tale that can take him from airport departure gate to destination hotel and back to long-term parking in such a state of engrossed concentration that he is in danger of missing his shuttle stop. When he’s not lost at the airport, he enjoys creating stories that he hopes will cause others to miss their bus. He currently lives with his wife and two kids in the foothills of Pleasant Grove, Utah.

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 …
