THREE LITTLE WORDS
by Jennie Hansen, K.C. Grant, Aubrey Mace

The road to true love never did run smooth, but a few bumps along the way make it all the more thrilling. This timeless truth is showcased in Three Little Words, a charming compilation of short stories written by a trio of popular LDS romance novelists. Readers are invited to follow the journeys of three young women as they encounter love where they least expect it.

* Rescuing Bailey by Jennie Hansen
For as long as she can remember, Bailey has loved the boy next door. But despite her feelings, his schedule and his little brother keep getting in the way. Will her childhood crush finally blossom into something real, or will she discover that true love is waiting just around the corner?

* Three Little Words by K.C. Grant
The bet is simple: Elizabeth, a speech therapist, has three days to teach a country bumpkin with a drawl as thick as molasses how to speak like a gentleman. But as she gets to know her charming student, it soon becomes clear that there may be more to him than meets the ear.

* A Crying Shame by Aubrey Mace
Cassidy is in love with the idea of love, though after her most recent breakup, the possibility of finding Mr. Right seems hopeless. But when she meets a handsome classmate in her painting class, she may end up learning more about chemistry than about art.

My Review
I absolutely LOVED this book!
Three amazing authors-- three fun stories!
Grab a copy and escape for a couple of entertaining hours :)

DOUBLE PLAY
by Ranee S. Clark

Sophie Pope is devastated when she hears the news: her former boyfriend, college football star Anthony “Rocket” Rogers, is engaged to be married. Determined to win him back before he says “I do,” Sophie hatches a foolproof plan to stop the wedding. But when Rocket’s best man, aspiring baseball player David Savage, thwarts her plot, she realizes the game is up. For David, though, it’s just beginning . . . David knows that Sophie is just another pretty face, and he’s more than happy to save his best friend from her shallow advances. She’s not his type at all, so he’s baffled by his response to an awkward encounter with Donovan, another of Sophie’s former flames. Despite himself, David feels driven by an inexplicable need to protect her. Pretending to be Sophie’s new fiancĂ© leads to unexpected sparks between the pair, and soon they’re searching for excuses to spend time together. But when a curveball threatens to send them in opposite directions, will Sophie and David step up to the plate for the possibility of true love?

My Review
I adore fun romance novels like this one!
And don't you just LOVE the cover!?

Cute!
Flirty!
Sassy!
FUN!

I loved that this book not only dealt with college and dating and jobs-- But it also spent quite a bit of time on modesty and how the clothes don't make the woman--

A very fun read with something to ponder!
I highly recommend this one!

HEART STOCKINGS
by Stefanie Hewlett, Allison Foulk

Lulie and Gus are really sad that the Christmas decorations are being put away.

Then they see the Christmas stockings and they have a brilliant idea!

Why not make 'heart stockings.'

Mom and Dad are curious if this is a ploy to get more candy or more toys.

But NO!!!

The heart stockings are to be filled with LOVE~

Love Notes,
Love Coupons,
and SAS (Secret Acts of Service)

Lulie quickly puts a note in Mom's stocking and then goes and helps with the dishes.
Dad does Lulie's laundry and leaves her a note.

Read to see what Gus and Mom do and how this family "look outside themselves to find joy in helping others."

START A NEW TRADITION!
Hang heart stockings and fill January and February with love.

This book is a Deseret Book exclusive--
Also available are "Heart Stockings" all ready to hang :)

The Matchup

THE MATCHUP
by Laura L. Walker


I really enjoyed this book!
Such fun writing! 

Gage is known as the 'wild child'--
But his life comes to a chasing halt when he finds out that he has a son and now has full custody of him
(I will let you read about how that all came about :)

Valerie has two children and one is autistic--
Due to that fact and other circumstances Valerie is now a single mom struggling to keep it all together.

Gage and Valerie used to go to school together where Gage wasn't very nice to Valerie.

Now Gage is at her mercy as he chooses her to watch his son while he works.

Valerie hates the fact that she will be working for Gage, however it will give her the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom for her own children.

Can they each put the past behind them and move towards the future?

An added bonus to this book is that you get to see a glimpse into Pierce and Noelle's continued story from Pierced by Love-- I loved that!

I also found it interesting that the author has an autistic child--making the story more enduring!

This is a book you are truly going to want to read :)

    

Younique Moonstruck Minerals Pigment Eyeshadow

My friend Alina, from Younique by Alina, gave me some 
MOONSTRUCK MINERALS PIGMENT 
SHIMMER EYESHADOW
to review--

I loved the packaging! Such cute little bottles!

Then I opened it up and was even more impressed that there is a covering over the opening with holes in it so you only touch what you are going to use thus keeping the powder clean and safe.

Application was super easy--

I went a little conservative as I am a strawberry blonde who is quickly going gray and my skin is ruddy with yellow undertones--so I want to look natural instead of made up.

(SO WISH I had dark coloring and could really pull off the 'smoldering' eye look :)

I also choose a 'shimmering' eye shadow--

It went on as a golden brown that I thought matched my skin and hair color really well.

Look at the inner corners of my eyelid and under my eye--I felt so pretty!



But as you know-- My big question is always -- DOES IT LAST?

Every other makeup I have ever tried has either faded away or absorbed into my skin by early afternoon--Well not this one!

I was happily surprised when I got ready for bed that I actually had to take off my makeup--
YES! It was still there!

And as you can see while I am super tired and ready to quit the eye shadow is still going strong :)



Would I recommend this product to a friend? ABSOLUTELY!
Would I wear it again? ABSOLUTELY!
Will I get more colors? ABSOLUTELY!

A review copy was provided

HOHENSTEIN
by Didi Lawson

Anything but a typical aristocrat, young Baroness Marie-Louise is not afraid to roll up her sleeves and get to work, especially when it comes to saving her ancestral estate. Determined to shake loose the shackles of propriety and gain the warm family life her upbringing denied her, she has vowed to marry a man of lower rank. Blue-bloods need not apply.

But when she is forced to turn to a childhood friend for assistance, the handsome, debonair count may prove a temptation impossible to resist. Marie-Louise soon finds herself caught between the comfort of a middle-class doctor and the passion of a nobleman, with the future of her childhood home at stake.

My Review
WOW! I LOVED THIS BOOK!

I loved how Baroness Marie-Louise pulled me in and kept me reading! She is WONDERFUL!

And the things she does to keep Hohenstein--intriquing!

And the count will truly keep your emotions going--loving him one minute and being irked with him the next--

AMAZING writing!
Historical fiction with a delightful touch of romance!
See how it all plays out in this MUST-READ book :)
