5.0 out of 5 stars Highly effective, 27 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Right out of the box this toothbrush looks and feels high quality. It is unusual in that it has a conductive charger in a glass. The toothbrush has to be charged for 24 hours before first use. You cannot physically see the led until you remove the toothbrush from the charger and they then light up from within. This adds to the overall impression of a quality product. It has five different modes clean, whitening, polish, gum care, and sensitive. I have used all 5 of these and there is a noticeable difference in the way the brush vibrates for each. On clean the vibration is powerful and it feels like your mouth is getting a really good clean. The in built timer produces a very tiny change in vibration at the 30 second point to allow you to change to another part of your mouth. This is so subtle it would be easy to miss if you were not concentrating. At the end of the 2 minutes the toothbrush switches off which was a little disconcerting the first time. However you can switch it on and start again immediately if you feel you are not quite finished. It left my mouth and teeth feeling exceptionally clean and my teeth felt they had a thorough brushing. The only thing I would say is that the power of the brush produces a high pitched whine which is quite loud. This takes a little getting used to. The charging case is different and I like the idea you can use a USB charger with this. The case is solid and protects the toothbrush well. This is an innovative concept and one which all toothbrush manufacturers should incorporate. Overall this is an exceptional product which, I would say, justifies the high price tag. Highly recommended

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good product. It sprays on easily and cleans well. Wiping it off is simple and it does not leave a sticky residue. It tackles all manner of food stains well, Even dried in food. I used it on several different surfaces I. The kitchen and the bath and it worked effectively on all of them. It does not leave a residual strong smell so is very suitable for food preparation areas where it will not taint the food. A great product which I would highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Taut and Gripping, 21 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Hidden (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was an excellent book. The storyline was taut and gripping and the book moved along a ta cracking pace. Initially I was a little confused as the chapters jump about, but once I sorted everyone out in my head this style worked well. The characters are believable and I really liked the main character Charlie. I would like to see more of her in future books. She is an investigative reporter and much of the book is seen from her point of view. However, it is also seen from the point of view of other characters so can seem a little jerky at times. Otherwise a really good story which I would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obligatory reading, 9 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books on bullying I have ever read and should be obligatory reading at all secondary schools. Cinda is different as she has a deformity. This gives the queen bee and her followers reason to feel they can mercilessly bully her. Cinda is a great character and Donna Dillon does a superb job of showing all her emotions. It is a short book but the author, who is an adept writer, draws the characters well and keeps the story taut. It takes a unique approach to telling the story, which works well. It takes the form of interviews of all the key players. Although you know they are being interviewed you don't know why and this makes you keep reading. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to all teenagers and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new book., 8 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is a really good addition to the series. It is engrossing, gripping and kept me reading. The plot is good and the writers style is such that it kept me reading. The historical context is excellent and it is obvious that this had been well researched. I love the character of John Shakespeare and found he had developed even more in this latest book. If you like historical mysteries then this is one I would highly recommend. It moves along at a rattling pace and keeps you reading way past the time when you should have turned in for the night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative and engrossing, 1 Jan. 2015
Although I do read Christian fiction, this is not a sub genre I would usually read. However, I liked the premise of this book so decided to purchase and read it. I am so glad I did. The storyline is that of a retelling of The story of Adam and Eve. It imagines what would happen if it were not Adam and Eve who ate the forbidden fruit but one of their descendants. This simple premise leads to a story which is highly engaging. It kept me reading way past the time when I should have put the book down for the night. Anna Lindsay is a talented writer and the book is beautifully written. I would not hestitate to warmly recommend this book.

These are beautiful. The stones are brilliant and the earrings elegant. The stones sparkle in the light. I often have to dress professionally and elegantly for different occasions and these will accessorise perfectly. The stones are large enough to be seen without being overwhelming

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Decandent Cake Recipes, 22 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Right out of the box this book is even more beautiful than the picture depicts. It is a high quality hardback and the colours are rich. The pages are thick and luxurious and everything about the book screams decadent. This continues with the cake recipes, which start with a simple chocolate cake. The photograph accompanying this cake makes it look rich and I can' twa it to try it. The recipes are well lid out and easy to follow with the accompanying photographs supporting the instructions well. The stacked Victoria sandwich from the front cover shows what can be done with what is essentially a basic cake, to make it extra special. They're are some really good cake recipes in here. However, this is much more than a recipe book, it is also a how to book which means it would be excellent for someone who wanted to develop their cake making skills. The title is a bit of a misnomer as it is not about decorating cakes so this is a little confusing. However, it is about putting cakes together in unusual ways to develop a luxurious cake. I cannot wait to get stuck into the dark chocolate and blackberry cake. Overall an excellent book which would make a fabulous gift.
