Waypoint

About the book: Dani loves the life she’s built working at the salon, but she craves the belonging of family. When she and Kade start to get serious, she thinks the full life she wants is in reach. Even personal tragedy doesn’t completely destroy what they are building together. 

Kade has been estranged from his family for years but when his dad is in a serious accident, Kade returns to the family boat shop to run things while he recuperates. He soon learns, however, that the accident is just one link is a chain of problems from someone who is determined to destroy everything their family has—including Kade’s life with Dani.

My review: This book is a cute love story. I love the way that Dani and Kade meet at an evening showing of an old movie that they both love. And then, their love starts to grow bit by bit a little more each and every day. I love that part of the story.

I love that even though Dani goes through a really hard spot, and ends up pregnant with another man's child, their love continues to grow and they just work together. I love that Dani defines Kade as her "Waypoint," the point that her life is always headed toward. Isn't that a beautiful thought and isn't that how our lives should be, constantly moving toward our spouses as our own Waypoint? I love that thought!

Kade's family life was kind of a mess before he met Dani and their getting married didn't really fix that. He's still estranged from his family because his Dad is kind of stubborn and refuses to allow Kade to fix what's wrong between them. But when his dad is injured, he needs Kade and has to swallow his pride to not only allow Kade back into his business life, but Kade and Dani move into his home as well.

I loved that this is at it's heart a love story, but there really is so much more to it than that. It's a story of family ties, of love and forgiveness even when someone has hurt you so badly. This is a cute book that I loved reading!

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…
