The Ready Resource for Relief Society - Teachings of the Presidents of The Church: Gordon B Hinkley

About the book: Whether you’re a new teacher or a seasoned veteran, preparing Relief Society lessons just got easier. For each lesson in the manual, this ready resource includes an accompanying chapter summary, pertinent quotes, relevant hymns, object lessons, and more. Now you can focus more on personalizing your lessons for the sisters in your ward!

My review: This is a great resource if you're teaching Relief Society in your ward!

I liked the way that this is set up. Each chapter corresponds to a chapter in the Gordon B Hinkley Teachings of the Presidents of the Church book that we're studying this year. Each chapter includes songs that you could use with them, a quick summary of the chapter, quotes you can use with the chapter, art that you can use, and a few object lessons as well. There's even a place for you to write any notes or thoughts you have as you're reading the lesson.

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

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&…
