4.0 out of 5 stars Between a Paperclip & a Staple, 25 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Better than a paper lip, not permanent as a staple. Great product, and reusable. Secures papers, safer and more secure than a paper clip, and then removable with no tell tale little holes. Easy to use highly recommended


Fast Diets For Dummies

4.0 out of 5 stars Fasting, not fast, diets, 27 May 2014
This review is from: Fast Diets For Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not a diet book to loose weight fast, it's advice on the different types of fasting. There are recipes and meal plans, giving very balanced views. Very worthwhile, another star in the "dummies" series

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but expensive, 12 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't usually like herbal and 'flavoured' teas, but this was mellow with a gentle flavour. Left in the mug for longer than I would usually leave a tea bag, it wasn't over strong and refreshing to drink black. But, very expensive, nice for special occasion or a treat, but not for everyday use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great pack, 5 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a well padded pack, well insulated and with pockets for accessories, could also be used for a packed meal (if the camera items were removed). I don't, as a rule, like back packs, I always think they can be opened by someone behind, so this has the option of hip or front location


The River of No Return
The River of No Return
by Bee Ridgway
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 10.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Time Travel, 5 Dec 2013
This review is from: The River of No Return (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a large book which could have been condensed down considerably. The plot was good, taken from a Spanish battlefield in 1813 an English marquis arrives in the future 21st Century where he is given an updated education a new identity and a considerable income by an organisation "picking up" the people dragged to the future. He enjoys his new life but is then required by the organisation to go back to 1815 to assist them. Nice plot, would have given more stars BUT the explainations take up so many pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, 24 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Receiving final divorce papers, Sadie and her 2 children pack-up and move to her aunt's house on the shore of Lake Michigan for the summer. Unknown to her, her 2 cousins have moved back home, and Sadie's previous well ordered life becomes anything but, she definately suffers from OCD. A hunky neighbour runs on the beach daily and gets her 2 children into the water learning to swim, Sadie having failed miserably to get them to dip their toes in the water. With the humour of an early pre-Plum Janet Evanovich romance, it's a great read.


Disengaged
Disengaged

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, 16 Sep 2013
This review is from: Disengaged (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Los Angeles entertainment people get engaged and HIS mother takes over all the arrangements for the engagement party and wedding, at one point even ordering the bride's wedding dress. Had problems relating to the engaged couple, and it became somewhat predictable too early in the telling of the story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Biographies?, 16 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Set in the mid 1700s, a younger sister wants to find a husband, but she has an older sister who is not looking for one. Unfortunately the author ignores the social requirements of the time - unmarried ladies without a chaperone being the most blatant, one going for horse rides alone and many more that detracted from the plot. The 2 young ladies were daughters of the Duke of Richmond (a real person), one of the suitors was a Cavendish, a younger son of the Duke of Devonshire (another real person). Soooo, is the book a biography or is the author failing in research? I found it very difficult to like any of the characters

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a weight machine, 1 Sep 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Feed in height, age & sex - metric or imperial - stand on it and not only are you given your weight but also fat & BMI. It also records the information with guest record. Looks very smart, batteries were included, really impressive
