The only way to design lighting. Choose products that measure up using instrumentation. We are designing kitchen LED lighting and this light meter tell the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Storytelling & Character Development with Plenty of Suspense, May 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Michael Vandor's characters are very interesting and realistic. I was immediately taken by Kathy and her story. Not just a pretty face or gratuitous violence, but tension and suspense based on realistic characters in conflict.

I quickly became wrapped up in the story andI just hope Vendor writes more...

1.0 out of 5 stars Morels with no flavor, May 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was very disappointed with the quality of their morels. I have been using morels for 30 years and buying them in both the US and Europe. While their flavor usually varies a little, they are always deeply earthy and well worth the cost.

These were very different. The color of the hydrating liquid was very light and the flavor in the cream sauce was insipid and without the usual depth of flavor.

Do not buy these mushrooms if you know morels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly compelling Of Recovery and Love, April 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mirror Image (Kindle Edition)
Sandra Brown's books do not always make sense and create a compelling narrative of real life. This one really does. So much so that I am reading it a second time and empathizing with both leading characters, Avery and Tate. Who can blame Tate for hating his wife Carole, but when Avery becomes Carole reincarnate after a plane crash and brutal recovery resumes the role of wife and mother, her fundamentally superior nature to Carole begins to undo all the the damage Carole has done before the crash.

The story holds together and I believe that this story could have actually happened. Not true of so many novels...that you Ms. Brown for this one.

I strongly recommend this series to anyone that also enjoys martial arts and feels that bullies and criminals should not get away with their behavior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging story, very good writing, better physics, November 11, 2013
The story starts out slowly, then speeds up rapidly to be a very exciting series of military engagements. I rapidly grew to care about the outcome, and liked the characters. And the strategies that the main character comes up with are very imaginative and the equipment innovations are great. Best of all is his evolving IAs that become increasingly sentient with personalities. I hope that we have this type of guy defending us from aliens in the future.

What I really appreciate is the solid basic physics. So many good writers do not understand what acceleration and velocity are. A space ship cannot go from 0 to a high velocity without accelerating for a while... And when moving at a substantial "speed", a vehicle must decelerate an equal amount to cancel that velocity. And this acceleration or deceleration takes a lot of energy that cannot magically come from some future engine without at least conversion from matter to energy (fision or fusion, etc.). Finally, the author's concepts of hyperspace is a bit more realistic than many author's creation. It can be very distracting when an author does not get basic physics concepts right when constructing a future reality. After all, this isn't rocket science.

I looking forward the next book. Thank you Mr. Wehr!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkably Good Story--Read it!, September 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book was being offered free, but I would have gladly paid for it. Very well written story of an Army MP officer who happens to be female, engaged in an effort to end international drug and sex slavery industry. Lots of action involving her and her friends. She also saves the life of a Saudi crown prince and he joins her collection of "friends" that work with her to accomplish her goals.
