Blog Tour - Second Season


About the book: Caroline is not looking forward to this year’s Season in London. Her mother already has schemes for her marriage prospects—and none of them include love, it seems. But when a dashing young duke begins to pursue her, Caroline has second thoughts. Caught between ambition and desire, Caroline may gamble her heart away without even realizing it.

My review: This book is a cute, clean, regency romance. Something I really liked about this book is that it isn't your normal Duke gets the girl story. This one has a plot line that is different from all of the other regency romance books I've read and that's a good thing!

This book has almost 2 plots in it, it kind of flashes back to Caroline's mom and dad's love story and I loved the way that one gets resolved in the end. I also liked that their stories mirror each other a little bit and they're able to learn from each other's situations.

I liked Caroline, she's the strong younger daughter of Lord and Lady Hopkins. I liked the way that she thought for herself in an era where that was really looked down upon by pretty much everyone. There's a scene in the book where she kind of runs away from the groom who is supposed to stay with her while she's on her ride. I really liked that she did things like that, no matter that she knew her mom was not going to be at all happy about it.

I also liked that you're able to see this story from the point of views of both of the love interests of Caroline. That makes it a little harder to be able to tell just which of them she's going to choose in the end. 

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

About the author: Heather Chapman currently resides in Soda Springs, Idaho, with her husband and four children. She graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University. Heather has worked in various administrative assistant roles and as an event planner. Heather has also worked as a piano accompanist and piano teacher on the side. She currently spends her time writing and working as a stay-at-home mother.

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 …
