3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Tasting Drink With Some Nutritional Value, August 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I found the taste of this drink tasty enough but I like almost anything that has chocolate in it. The drink provides quite a bit of protein and not a whole lot of sugar and just 100 calories. It makes a tasty enough afternoon snack but I doubt that it is something I would order again.

These are very tasty snacks as my whole family will agree. There is just the right amount of garlic and parmesan flavor. The pretzel crisps are satisfying and just what you need when you crave a crunchy snack food that is not too unhealthy.


A Master Plan for Rescue: A Novel

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Coming Of Age Story After A Slow And Confusing Start, August 28, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It took me awhile to engage with Janis Cooke Newman's novel A MASTER PLAN FOR RESCUE. The book starts slowly and I was sometimes confused at times as to what was real in the book and what fantasy. Still for the patient reader this is a well rendered coming of age story set during World War II.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nightmare Of A Missing Baby, August 28, 2015
This review is from: Remember Mia (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
REMEMBER MIA recounts the nightmare of a missing child in this case a seven month old girl named Mia. To make matters worse the child's mother is not at all sure of what is going on and is an unreliable narrator. The book is decently written but suffers because some of the material seems both derivative of other works and unbelievable. I didn't quite believe the resolution which left a lowered opinion in my mind. I read this at the airport while waiting for a very delayed plane and it did pass the time but there are more original suspense novels out there I can recommend. LACY EYE, EILEEN, BLACK-EYED SUSANS, LITTLE PRETTY THINGS, THE GATES OF EVANGELINE and LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE are novels of psychological suspense published in 2015 that are much better rendered than REMEMBER MIA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Desperate Characters, August 28, 2015
This review is from: Watch Me Go (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
WATCH ME GO is a smart,literary, crime thriller. The well written book features two points of view from two different characters. The writing is nuanced, the characters are believable and well developed and the settings come to vivid life. Mark Wisniewski is a talented writer and I look forward top what he authors next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Character Driven Family Novel Set In Marin County, California, August 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
THE ADMISSIONS is a very readable and engaging novel about a contemporary, affluent Marin County, California family of five. The novel has a clever title referring both to the admission of secrets and admission in to college. All the family members face significant challenges in the course of the book. Successful real estate salesman and mom Nora has a couple of problems with two of the very high end homes she has listed plus she is overwhelmed with her family's needs. Her husband Gabe is a partner in a consulting firm but a lie he told long ago has been discovered by an intern and she is attempting to blackmail him. Perfect senior in high school daughter Angela is determined to do everything to fulfill her father's dream of her attending Harvard. Middle daughter Cecily has a passion for Irish dancing and a great concern for humanity. Baby of the family Maya still can't read and her mother is afraid she knows why and that she is to blame. All of the family members will have some major setbacks in the course of the book but it all ends happily though the author leads us to worry a tragedy is in the works. Even the supporting players are well developed in this well rendered character driven novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars These Work Well On This Dreaded Pest, August 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Japanese Beetles are a destructive pest that are the scourge of many vegetable and flower gardens. These traps are very effective in luring the beetles in and securely trapping them. They are easy to use and really work. If you notice Japanese Beetles in your garden (and they are hard to miss) as well as the large holes they leave in leaves you would be wise to immediately set these traps out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Large But Efficient Pencil Sharpener, August 6, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a good pencil sharpener but possibly more than I need for home use. It takes up quite a bit of desk space, has a very large shavings tray and you can choose from six different holes though I usually only need one. It also glows and is antimicrobial which I suppose are nice features but I am not sure why I need them. It can be used with colored pencils which is a feature I appreciate. It is not exactly silent but more quiet then many large sharpeners. It has a nice business like appearance. Most importantly it does sharpen pencils quickly and efficiently. It seems like it could have less features that are unnecessary to me and be more reasonably priced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful For Redirecting Mixed Up Birds, August 6, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These small, easy to apply window films really do help alleviate the problems of birds flying in to windows. This design is attractive and unobtrusive yet will discourage mixed up birds from trying to fly through your home's windows. The film can be easily taken down when the birds are no longer actively trying to fly through the windows and then quickly reapplied if the problem comes back.


The Hummingbird: A Novel
The Hummingbird: A Novel
by Stephen P. Kiernan
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $14.29

3.0 out of 5 stars Readable Book With A Message, August 6, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
THE HUMMINGBIRD is a decently written novel with a positive message and obviously worthy themes. The book basically has three skeins. The first is the story of Deborah a dedicated hospice nurse whose Iraq War veteran husband is suffering from PTSD. The second focuses on Deborah's patient Barclay a dying former history professor. Lastly there is the book Barclay wrote about a Japanese soldier during World War II. The writing and the characters tend to be cliched and would be right at home in the romance genre and the lessons in the book's plot are not subtle. Still this is a readable book that many will enjoy.
