Blog Tour - Kept Secrets Review and Giveaway


About the book: Unexpectedly reunited after six years, high school sweethearts Devin Shanahan and Grace Harrington cross paths and have a whirlwind wedding. A lot can change in six years, however, and they must figure out how to make their two independent lives mesh.

Unable to disclose his CIA job to his new wife, when Devin is assigned a top-secret mission to Hong Kong, he tells Grace part of the truth: that he is going to work abroad for six months in finance. But when the mission turns deadly and Devin doesn't know whom to trust, he must make the most difficult decision of his life in an effort to keep Grace safe. Will the seeds of deception prove destructive to their newly formed marriage? And will the love that brought them together be the very thing their enemies use to tear them apart?


My review: Wow, I loved this book! I loved the way that the plot just drug me in. I had things to do and would try to put the book down, but I really, really wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. The plot of this one is filled with plenty of action and adventure as well as just the right amount of romance to keep everything moving along and the reader interested. I loved the way that it seemed like the ending and that all would be well for the characters and then there was another twist. There's no way I would have ever figured out who the bad guy was, wow, I was surprised!

Grace is such a cute character. I loved the way that she saw the world and I love that she knew the kind of family she wanted from the beginning because of the way that her parents had been. I loved that she was open to the whole whirlwind romance thing and I loved just how hard she was willing to work to make their long distance relationship work out through everything.

Devin was a great character, too. I loved his persistence when trying to get Grace to agree to marry him when it seemed like such a crazy thing to do. I loved that he was willing to fight for their relationship and that he was willing to do whatever it took to protect his little family. His family was messed up, but he was willing to work hard so that his own little family unit was as normal as it was possible. There's a scene near the end that I especially loved with Devin and his parents. It was so sweet. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll have to stop there!

If you love romantic suspense books, look no further to find the perfect one!

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 …
