The Protective One

About the book: Sweet romance by bestselling inspirational author, Cami Checketts 
Betrayed by an FBI agent while in protective custody, MacKenzie Gunthrie escapes a crime lord and is left hiding from the authorities and her enemies. She finds solace in the peaceful mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado. With help from a longtime girl's camp friend and a new identity, she's starting to feel safe. The only problem is the overconfident and much too good-looking Isaac Turnbow. Protecting identity has become second nature, but Isaac poses a threat to her heart. 

Isaac Turnbow has an undeniable need to convince MacKenzie he’s someone she can trust and kiss, but when well-armed men arrive to disturb their budding relationship, he must prove to her and himself that he can protect her. 

This fast-paced, clean Billionaire Bride Pact Romance is a fun and touching read you won’t be able to put down. 

Bonus chapters by Lucy McConnell and Jeanette Lewis.

My review: I enjoyed the whole premise behind this one. MacKenzie is an amazing young woman, not only has she escaped being killed once by a couple of crazy crime lords, she escapes a second time when they attack her FBI protected safe house and hides herself as best as she can without current ID or a fake name. I loved the fact that MacKenzie's good friend Haley needs some help, so MacKenzie offers, excited to get to know Haley's brother Isaac better. Isaac was MacKenzie's first kiss and she's hoping that something more will happen between them, but she's disappointed when it seems that Isaac remembers nothing about the time they had spent together when they were teenagers.

Isaac is a great guy. I had to laugh a little bit when circumstances kept making him out to be the bad guy. I loved that he does remember MacKenzie and wants to be sure to protect her from the people he knows are only out to hurt her. I thought that it was super sweet when MacKenzie realized that she needed Isaac and allowed him to help her, even though she doesn't necessarily feel safe with him - not really not physically safe, she's trying to protect her heart from being hurt. 

This is a cute, clean, quick read that will take you to the cute little town of Crested Butte, Colorado. I loved it!

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

  1. Thank you, Cathy! I loved these two also and Crested Butte is a favorite spot of mine. My sixth Billionaire Bride Pact is set there and I'm having a blast writing it!

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.


About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

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 …

Worth the Wrestle

About the book: Why can’t I seem to conquer weaknesses that plague me?” “How do I know if I’m receiving revelation?” “Will the Lord forgive me after what I’ve done?” “Why can’t we seem to get ahead financially even though we faithfully pay our tithing?” “What if the Church’s position on gay marriage bothers me?”

Those are just a handful of the countless questions Sheri Dew has heard people ask over the years. “May I answer these questions,” she writes, “and any questions you may have, by posing a different question: Are you willing to engage in the wrestle? In an ongoing spiritual wrestle?”

In Worth the Wrestle, Sheri examines the process of asking good questions—whether those questions be doctrinal, procedural, historical, or intensely personal—and learning how to get answers. She demonstrates how to live by faith while seeking greater light and knowledge. And she testifies of principles that are worth wrestling for and of understanding that can be gained in no other way.

My review: Wow…
