Destiny Came Knocking: A Snow Valley Romance

About the book: When Piper Jensen’s dog has a litter of puppies that aren’t anything like their purebred mother, she immediately suspects the culprit responsible for the mishap is her neighbor’s derelict dog. Seeking restitution, Piper confronts the owner, Gabe Wesson, a single father of two children that likes to keep to himself. She isn’t prepared for Gabe to be so handsome, nor so disagreeable, and is irritated by his demands for a paternity test to prove his dog is the sire. As she and Gabe try to work things out, they both fight a growing attraction neither one of them want. But when Piper finds her heart falling in love with his children, it might be the catalyst that tips the scale towards a destiny she never dreamed possible.

*NOTE TO READER: This stand-alone edition has a bonus epilogue included!! 

My review: I LOVE this author's writing! This novella was amazing from beginning to end and I loved everything about it!

I loved how mad Piper was at the beginning, her dog has just had puppies and instead of looking anything like their mother or well-papered father, they look just like that rascal of a dog from next door, appropriately named, Rascal. Piper knows that her money that she was going to get for these puppies has gone up in smoke, so she marches next door to give the neighbor she's never even met a piece of her mind. I loved how her anger drains away as she meets her neighbor and his adorable young daughter, leaving her a bit confused. She has already promised herself that she will in no way ever get entangled with another man...

Then there's Gabe, I really loved him in this book. He's everything you'd hope a single dad would be. Kind, compassionate, caring, he's trying to do his best to keep his career going and still care for his kids. But he definitely wants nothing to do with the female species. This was a really fun one, it was fun to watch how both of these two just kept pushing the other away, even when they kept getting thrown together.

I really liked the plot of this one, and the new ending is amazing too! This is a great read, quick, clean, cute and fun!

I was sent an e-copy of this novella 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…
