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.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
