Murder Offstage: A Posie Parker Mystery (The Posie Parker Mystery Series Book 1)
Murder Offstage: A Posie Parker Mystery (The Posie Parker Mystery Series Book 1)
Price: $0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating setting and charming characters but a bit slow moving at times, December 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really enjoyed this mystery and the characters. However, I felt the story moved too slowly towards the middle of the book, but the pace picked up nicely in the last several chapters. I would read the next books in the series and would definitely recommend to a friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars good read, December 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I believe there were a few small typos but it wasn't distracting from the story. Interesting characters, a unique protagonist who is realistic and well crafted, and a good plot kept the story moving without diminishing the impact of the scenes. Overall, a nice fun read that I would recommend to anyone who's ever wondered what it would be like to create an alter ego! 😉

Loved the storyline and characters but spotted a few grammatical and spelling errors. They didn't distract from the story though, a very entertaining read. Looking forward to more mysteries with these characters! Recommend highly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the sponges, hate the deception!, September 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered these sponges twice so far through Amazon, hoping that the first time was a fluke and they would eventually send me the case of twelve two packs as promised. Both times I received one two pack. Amazon was great about refunding money, but I think this company should be required to change it's ad. These sponges retail at $3.99 for a two pack locally, so twelve dollars for a case of twelve two packs is great, but not for one two pack.

5.0 out of 5 stars cute top, September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a thing for light tees, and this one fits the bill! The sleeves and fit of the shirt are flattering, and the fabric is soft and light. It's a slightly darker shade of teal than pictured, very nice color. All in all, great purchase!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, but Odd Sizing, September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really appreciate the quality of these sweatpants...they are nicely fitted, not like conventional sweatpants, but more like fleecy yoga pants. They are low-rise, so prepare for that, and there isn't much of a waistband (but they do have a drawstring).

However, I was disappointed to try on my size large pair--and they were tight! I am usually a size medium-large, and was surprised by the fit; there wasn't much stretch considering that they are sweatpants. Then again, in my opinion, AA stuff tends to run a bit small. I am 5'4 and muscular, so maybe that's part of the issue. However, I would recommend ordering a size UP from what you normally wear, especially if you are a "curvy" or "athletic" body type .

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, but nice shirts, August 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I expected this shirt to be more like the Bella shirts below, which I was very happy with. They had the waistband hem instead of just a typical shirt hem, which added some structure to the shirt.

Bella Ladies 3.7 oz. Long-Sleeve Flowy Off Shoulder T-Shirt - WHITE - S

This shirt is cute, but not what I expected. I thought it would be more like the Bella shirt, but instead it was a bit short (shorter than I thought it would be). But I really like the style of the top, and the sleeves. With the right pants/skirt, it could look really cute.

More advice--get this shirt in the size you normally take. I ordered a medium, (I'm 150 pounds, 5'4) and it fit well.

Nice shirts, but don't expect them to have a super-tailored fit because that isn't the style!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute Scarf/Shawl for the Price, August 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
AA items are usually super pricey, so I was happy to purchase this for only 5 dollars. It is a versatile "shawl", and can be worn as a scarf, or even used as a blanket. It is quite a bit of fabric, but it is fairly lightweight cotton. I ordered the brown and white version, which is a nice neutral that can go with anything. Yes, I agree, you can probably get the same thing if you went to a craft store, but fabric isn't that cheap either these days.

Overall, like this shawl/scarf and will wear it frequently.
