Love's Deception

About the book: Catherine Lewis lost her husband to a roadside bomb in Baghdad shortly after discovering she was expecting their first child. Seven years later, Cat fears her chance at true happiness has slipped through her fingers.

After growing up the son of a humble Oregon farmer, Ty Bradford is climbing the corporate ladder at an accounting firm in California. But when his father suffers a heart attack he returns home to help with the family farm. Rescuing a beautiful cowgirl stranded on a rural road transforms his previously miserable leave of absence into one of the happiest times of his life. 

Ty isn't a member of the LDS Church, and normally Cat, an active Latter-day Saint, wouldn't give him a chance. Against her better judgment, she falls for him, believing he is a farmer. Once she realizes Ty is leading a double life, will she shut the door on the relationship for good? Or could Mr. Wrong possibly be the right one for Cat after all? 

My review: This was a cute love story! I liked that life wasn't always easy for either of the main characters. Cat because of her circumstances and Ty because of some of the choices he had already made in his life. 

Cat was a great character. She lost her husband to a roadside bomb before their little one was born and she's been raising Danny with the help of her mom ever since. But now her mom has cancer and her future's really uncertain. I loved the scene where Cat's tire blows out and Ty helps her. It made me laugh really hard how she was terrified that he was trying to harm her by following her home, so she starts to call 911 on him. So funny. Then she sees him again at his parent's farm and she's really embarrassed, even funnier!

I liked Ty too. I liked the way he was willing to listen to the missionaries and learn and grow, even though he had lived his whole life another way. I loved the humility it would have taken to be able to turn your whole life around like that. I was kind of sad when Cat found out that Ty had a girlfriend in California. It was kind of interesting, because the way the book is written, even the reader doesn't know that she's really his girlfriend. 

The plot of this one is cute. I liked the little extras that you don't see coming in this one. And I liked the ending, reading Cat's journal entry at the end made me cry. I really enjoyed reading this book! 

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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 …
