The Secret of Pembrooke Park
The Secret of Pembrooke Park
Price: $9.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing Gothic set in Regency England, January 27, 2015
Julie Klassen is a master story-teller, one who brings Regency England to life with her deft pen. The Secret of Pembrooke Park is yet one more addition to her delightful story-telling. Most of her books are hits with me...The Secret of Pembrooke Park definitely was.

In this story, Abigail Foster's family has suffered a financial set-back when unexpectedly they are offered the use of a distant relatives manor home, which has been essentially abandoned for almost 20 years. With no where else to go, the family makes plans to move to the estate. Abigail takes over the preparation of the home...and finds the place filled with mystery and questions.

This book is about the hunt for a treasure and learning what treasure really and truly is. It's about learning to break free of the past, and being willing to walk into the future. It's also about the desire to be loved for who we really are. It's about the importance of family and loving despite the bumps and set-backs in life. And it's about a romance (actually two romances) that seems impossible. And perseverance to find the truth.

The Secret of Pembrooke Park is a engrossing read for those who adore Jane Austen England and love a richly layered, multi-faceted book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 14 year old likes it., January 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My 14 year-old daughter has been using this set and really likes the way it's keeping her skin clearer. She's been using Mary Kay teen products for several years which worked fine, but this is doing an even better job. The foaming cleanser took a bit to get used to, but she likes it now. She hasn't been as consistent with the moisturizer, but says her skin has not dried out on tis product. If you have a child with mild to moderate acne, this may be a great product for them to try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job with minimal packagin, January 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These tampons work well and come with minimal packaging. I don't think my teen would be comfortable using them because of how the product is inserted. The plastic wrap is a tad tricky to get into, but keeps them separate and protected. It's also a very compact box which makes for nice storage -- I was surprised there were actually 40 tampons in the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fabric has a rich glint to it and is one I absolutely love. You'll want to put a shower liner behind ..., January 24, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an absolutely gorgeous shower curtain. I was expecting a rich brown color, but this is almost iridescent and closer to a bronze with grey undertones. The fabric has a rich glint to it and is one I absolutely love. You'll want to put a shower liner behind it, but this will look great with a silver shower curtain that will pick up the slight metallic flecks in the light.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy on-the-go charging station, January 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice tool for those who need a way to charge items away from an electrical plug-in. I've used it to charge my iPad 2 and iPhone. It holds it's charge well...and steadily charged my iPad -- though it's not a quick charge. I'm not sure if it's my iPad, but it takes it hours to fully charge the iPad. However, it will charge my iPhone in an hour. For me it's still a great help because I can't charge my iPad easily in my car. To see how much charge the iFrogz has left, you hit the power button on the top and note how many of the four lights illuminate. It also has 2 USB slots, so I can charge two devices at a time. One small drawback is that to charge the iFrogz, you have to plug it into a USB port of some sort. The flashlight is a nice gimmick, but I'm not sure how much I'll actually use it. Last note: it took an overnight (about eight hours) to fully charge the iFrogz while it was plugged into my computer.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quick read that I enjoyed, January 8, 2015
In A Brush with Love, Rachel Hauck has crafted a story of a deeply scarred woman who has it all -- when it comes to making other women beautiful. However, she will never see herself as beautiful, let alone desirable to a man. She's walled her heart and life off, even as a piece of her longs for more. Enter the hero who walked out on her 12 years earlier when his family fled town in the middle of the night. He's always found her beautiful, but knows she has to accept that truth for herself. This novella is one that I wish had been longer. There was so much truth to be explored as Ginger steps into seeing her beauty first through Tom's eyes and then through God's. A quick read that I enjoyed!

5.0 out of 5 stars You've Got Mail meets Letters to Juliet in the best possible way!, January 8, 2015
This review is from: Paper Hearts (Kindle Edition)
Happy, happy sigh. This reader was swept away by Courtney Walsh's delightful Paper Hearts. Abigail Pressman has a dream to expand her bookstore set in a tourist town in the Colorado mountains. All she needs to do is scrape together the funds to buy the building. Before she can do that a new doctor swings into town with the cash to buy her building. Before she really meets him, she knows he could threaten her future plans and happiness...not to mention her livelihood. Jacob didn't intend to destroy her life, he just wanted to create a new one for himself and his daughter. But then the Valentine Volunteers get involved -- think a Greek Chorus ala Letters to Juliet, and all kinds of shenanigans happen.

This book is rich with secondary characters who beg to have books of their own, yet keep from stealing the show. Abigail is the kind of heroine I would love to sit down with and share cups of her special Love Peak brew. And the paper hearts are an excellent reminder to keep an eye on my personal romance and ways to keep it alive through good and bad times.

This is a romance perfect for those who love a contemporary story filled with heart, characters you'll adore, and a romance laced with enough angst and ahhhs to keep you reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this humidifier, January 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great humidifier -- especially in rooms with kids. The fact that it is a cool mist is great -- no potential for burns. It also has a great swivel head that allows you to point the mist away from furniture -- ask me how I know this is important! That's right, a prior humidifier didn't have this feature. It does appear to turn itself off when it runs out of water, but it's so quiet it's hard to tell for sure. The light stays on, but it didn't appear to have any parts running. And the tank is huge! It holds enough water for several nights at a time. Add in the easy control feature to let you decide how much water should release as a mist and this is a very easy to use humidifier. Considering getting another one already!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read from a new go-to author, December 31, 2014
This review is from: Beyond All Dreams (Kindle Edition)
Elizabeth Camden became a go-to author for me with her book With Every Breath. This book is even better!

This historical novel set in Washington, D.C., has romance, mystery, and a story I couldn't leave. The characters are so real, the conflict separating them so vast that I literally wondered how they could end up together --even as I wanted it for them. And I love this -- she taught me something about American history that I didn't know in a way that made it enjoyable. This novel is perfect for every historical reader who enjoys Gilded Age, more than a romance, yet a romance that is sigh-worthy.

I can't wait for her next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thermometer, December 20, 2014
This is so cool, my kids think it's a toy. You don't have to touch the skin to get a temperature reading, so it works great on sleeping kiddos. It seems very accurate -- we've taken readings on 6 family members in quick succession, and each is different. Very easy to use. A great tool to have in the family medicine cabinet.
