Other Review :  From Faithfulness blog

When I was asked to review this product for my honest opinion. I was happy to take it, because my husband has dark circles around his eyes and I was looking for something to help him. This is a real concern for him and he was happy to test it out. I have to say as I watched and explained how to use it to him. After just a few days you could see his eyes were not as dark and you could even see the puffiness was also diminishing. He is happy  that I found this product because it is working to help his eye issues. I liked the way it was packaged with a plastic cover to protect it and it was delivered within a couple of days.

Book Review - Die Again - Tess Gerritsen

Title:  Die Again

Review:  I love this series and have read most of the books in it - I think I missed a few early on - I have gone back and read past books, just not all of them.  But I have to say that I do love the characters and their interactions in this book.  Since the TV show came out the books now say 'Rizzoli & Isles' and yes in the past few books these characters have come central to this series - I never thought these two would be friends since they are both so different - but it seems to be working - 
On the other hand I tried watching the 1st season of the TV series and could not take the characters serious - they are nothing like the characters in the book series - Rizzoli is not the beauty in the books she is on TV and Isles is much to personable on TV then in the books - yes in the books the characters have developed a friendship of sorts, but it is not like the TV show at all - it is more of an acquaintance-work friend in the books- where Rizzoli is the one pushing to have Isles let her in a bit.

Back to this book review - I like this authors writing and like I said I love the characters - this book started out in Africa and built from there - I did enjoy reading this book, but it did not keep me up late at night like a few of her other books have.  I would give it 4 stars for that reason.  The African story line was interesting and mixed with the Boston chapters to keep you turning the pages.

It is a great story that weaves its way around the world and ends up right back n Boston again.  The new characters you meet and few old ones again are well written and the dialogue is authentic.  Rizzoli's mother and family are going through a tough stop that has been threaded throughout the last few books and it this book you don't see much change it that area - BTW: I guessed the end, but there was a twist I missed - it was a bit of a slippery twist that was tough for the reader to see coming.  The ending was good and the whole book kept my attention - I look forward to the next book in this series and will be reading that as soon as I can.

The book Ice Cold in this series is a definite 5 star read for me - 

I picked this book up at my local library.

Synopsis:  The latest enthralling case in Tess Gerritsen's New York Times bestselling Rizzoli & Isles series, the blockbuster books behind the smash hit TNT series.

Boston Detective Jane Rizzoli is on the case of a big game hunter found dead in his apartment, alone with the body of a beautiful white snow leopard he had recently been commissioned to procure and stuff for a high-profile museum in the area. 

Medical examiner Maura Isles connects the case to a number of seemingly unrelated deaths where the victims have all been found hanging upside down, the hallmark of a leopard's kill. 

Rizzoli follows the puzzling trail of clues all the way to Botswana, where she uncovers the unsolved mystery of a deadly camping safari six years prior. When she realizes the two cases are connected, Rizzoli must track down the sole survivor of the tragic trip to discover who - or what - is behind these gruesome deaths.

Product Review - Splash Math 2nd grade -

Product: Splash Math for Grade 2

Review:  Cute graphics that are make learning math fun for kids - lots of things to keep them interested and playing - win points and prizes for your work that can be used at different places on the app.  My kids love this game because I let them use anytime and its loads of fun while learning.  A great combination for anyone needing to learn something - math is so important and students need as much exposure to math and math concepts at younger and younger ages to stick with it - math and science jobs are a plenty - but there are very few qualified individuals to fill them.

Kids need math - high school's require 3-4 years of math and you need to pass those classes so getting your kids started early so that they can learn to enjoy math is a great plan - get your kids doing and enjoying math for life - start them young for sure.  Anything that gets a child to work on math is a great product.

Other Review:-
Simply Second- Splash Math: This is my most favorite! I have the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade apps. They are more spendy, but they cover the standards and the kids love it! It's organized by skill, so I can have students practice exactly what I want. I think it's great test practice with it's multiple choice format. It even has a built-in scratch paper feature. Twice a week I get 30 iPads during math. If a student finishes their work early I usually have them go on this app to practice our targeted skill. If I don't have the iPad lab I will sometimes just project the app and have the kids take turns.

Book Review - Emira the Shadow - Olivia A Foust

Title: Emira the Shadow (Shattered Souls Book 1)

Author: Olivia A. Foust

Stars: 2 1\2 out of 5

Review:  Emira the Shadow the author calls a Novelette which I can only assume is because it is only 31 pages long. This novelette has great potential of becoming a great dystopian series but it lacks the ability to draw the reader in because it is only 31 pages long.

As the books starts I already feel lost because I don't understand why the world or society is divided into two groups. What caused the rift and why? We see the world though Emira’s eyes; a world of hate, anger and distrust. She only wants to save her people but in doing so much killing. She wants to kill as many Southerners as possible. When she goes into a Southerner camp to save a group of her people she finds a man she once cared for as a young child, Rou.  We also meet a Southerner who wants to help save Emira’s people and for some unknown reason she trusts him.  She brings him back to the camp where she develops a friendship.

I wanted to love this little novelette, I truly did. The outline is nothing new. You have conflict, killing, and rescues but something about her writing pulled me in. But the lack of editing takes a good story and ruins it.

For example "As an Ex-Felon Fezz enjoyed the pain of his victims and would more often than not kill them slowly, a hobby that my brother was relieved I didn't share." (Example from novelette)
 I personally would have gone with this instead: “As an ex-felon Fezz enjoyed killing his prey slowly, inflicting as much pain as possible before they died." Short simple and to the point.

At one point Emira leaves the Southerner with Fezz. Why would you leave someone you trust with an ex-felon who loves to kill Southerners? How does that make any sense? One of many issues that drove me crazy about this novelette.

 The author has Emira dealing with emotions that she kept hidden for years as she leads her merc’s to kill Southerners and saving her people, the Easterners. When she meets a Southerner who causes her to question everything she knows, she starts to deal with her emotions causing her to almost get killed.  However we never read about the battle we are only told about in a few simple words.  I want details! I want to know what she was thinking that caused her to almost get killed. The author instead writes her emotions are warring on her face. Not helpful at all. I need details to be able to connect with the character.

Author area of concern when it comes to this author is the fact that Emira can read people as if their thoughts are written on their faces.  This Novelette is written in the first person but most of the time she has Emira reading the person as if they are speaking. It bothers me. I would have rather had dialogue than her ability to read a person’s face.

The lack of development of characters, settings and plot makes this novelette pointless. If the author would take the time to develop the characters, setting, and plot, this book would be a novel I would have enjoyed more. I don’t understand Fezz. Why is he an ex-felon? What did he do to become an ex-felon and why would an ex-felon lead a group of people?

What set the Easterners apart from Southerners? Fezz has the ability to tell that the Southerner who helped rescue the Easterners was a part of the group? What sets them apart? Why call them Southerners? Why call them Easterners? The lack of detail causes the book to fall flat at times causing me as a read to want to walk away and the book is only 31 pages long.

This novelette again has great potential if it had the help of a good editor.

This book can be found on Amazon Unlimited. I love the unlimited program because it gives you a chance to find unknown authors.

Thank you Heidi for this review.

My twin brother Caiel and I escaped with the help of a convicted felon from our jails. His crime was murder and I had found it abhorrent until that day. As I watched the Southerners drag my childhood love away from me, I found the idea of taking a life more than acceptable. There in that moment of blood and hatred, my soul shattered into a million pieces and I swore I would do whatever it took to bring the South to their knees.

Author Information:  I was born in Eugene OR, but claim Houston TX as home. As a child, I was always coming up with stories to occupy my mind and time, and now I write said stories- Although they are a bit more Adult now.

Product Review - Silicone Beverage Glasses - Set of 2

Product:  Silicon Wine Glasses - by Ramini Brand product

Review:  My children were not impressed - they did not like the smell of the glasses and they seemed to knock them over every time they used them.  The smell is better now that they have been washed many times.  They are soft and flexible - maybe a bit to flexible for some people.  The fuller they are the more then tip - I would say the pool yes as you are floating along sipping your drink - perfect - placing them in the cup holder - no risk of tipping there.

My suggestion for these glasses is for around a pool - no one wants glass in their pool or on the pool deck - so these glasses would be great for the pool.  No worry about walking on broken glass with these glasses.  I think for taking them with you camping or the beach they are terrific - small - flexible and non breakable - great for use with kids - no need to worry about broken glass when they are dropped -

These little glasses have a place in your life where they would be just what you need - for me that is not the kitchen - but the pool - or the camper - they would be at home where breakage of glasses would be an issue -

Product Review - IArrow iPhone 6 Plus Tempered Glas

Product:  iPhone 6 Plus Screen Protector (5.5 inch ONLY) Tempered Glass - HD Crystal-Clear Ballistic Glass Screen Protector Keeps Your iPhone 6's Plus Display Completely Free From Scratches, Smudges and Fingerprints - Advanced Triple-Layer Design Delivers 99.99% Clarity and Touchscreen Accuracy - Order with Confidence Thanks to an Amazing Double Guarantee!

Review:  This is the second screen protector I have applied to my iPhone 6 Plus.  The immediate benefit with this screen protector is it includes detailed installation instructions. However the first one went on extremely easy and seemed to pull itself on to the screen. While this one has very detailed and easy to follow instructions the suction cup you are to use to carefully align the GLASS-F with the contours of the screen released before I had it aligned and then I had to peel it off to realign it.  It did come off and I was able to realign it but it had one bubble the second time which was easily removed.

 My complaint with the first screen protector was how much of the glass was not protected by the screen protector.  The box and ad that convinced me to buy it led me to believe the entire glass would be covered but that was not the case.  While this screen protector has a picture on the package that clearly shows the screen protector does not cover the entire glass.  When it comes to having a screen protector I prefer it to cover the entire glass.  There is however a definite advantage to this screen protector over the ones I have had on previous iPhones.  The feel and look is the same as the glass under the protector which is what you want when you have an iPhone - the same high quality definition and feel with a greater sense of protection.

I like this screen protector more then the last few I have tried.

11 in 1 Credit Card Wallet Knife. Stainless Steel Survival Multitool Utility. Perfect Tool for Bug Out Bag, Camping or Fishing. Tools Include Knife, Saw, Bottle Opener, Can Opener, Slot Head Screwdriver, Ruler, 4 Position Wrench and More!

Review : This item is about the size of a credit card and comes with a little plastic sleeve for carrying - it has a short instruction sheet on what each part is - I wish it had a bit more - example of how to use each slot that is not familiar to me - but it is heavy metal and it will not break with the first use you give it.

My dad would love this - he loves gadgets and this is a fun one you can carry with you - this is like a mini multi-tool that fits in your wallet - carry it with you or store it in the car - what a great item to have around -

Book Review - Her Dangerous Viscount - Cynthia Wright

Title:  Her Dangerous Viscount

Author:  Cynthia Wright

Review:   A regency romance of the first order. It starts out in France, moves to England, and ends in America. First published in 1990 under the title Natalya. It was revised in 2011 and published under the tile Her Dangerous Viscount. It had a pleasant story line and two strong characters in the main roles. A captured English Viscount, who was a Navy Captain, a beautiful American maiden who is living in France with family and this is in 1814. England is at war with France and the United States. The maiden wishes to return to America and the escaped hero wishes to get out of France and back to England. The join forces and escape. But once there circumstances compel the hero to go to America to right a wrong against him. He takes the maiden with him and returns her to her family. After the obligatory sex scenes they end up married. All and all a pleasant read. 

I got the book from Amazon thru

I rated the book at 4 stars and would read other offerings by this writer. This book is part of the Rakes & Rebels series.

Thank you Frank for this review.

Synopsis:  Special Author's Cut Edition
Originally Published by Ballantine Books

The year is 1814 and Grey St. James has escaped from Napoleon’s prison on the rocky isle of Mont St. Michel. Desperate and dangerous, he is a far cry from the rakish nobleman who had broken hearts in Regency London.

In a chateau high above the romantic Loire River, Natalya Beauvisage is writing her second novel. At 26, she is beautiful but hardly marriageable and that suits her, for she plans to devote herself to her career as a novelist. The men in Natalya’s books do her bidding… but when a dark, threatening stranger appears at the chateau and holds her at knifepoint, she discovers a potently attractive real man who is completely beyond her control.
Grey needs to escape from France and Natalya longs to return to America at a time when war made sea passage perilous, so they form an unlikely alliance. Dangerous adventures await them as they journey together, attempting first to elude Napoleon’s henchmen and then to travel on to London, where Grey must confront shocking changes in his life. 

As they grow closer, Natalya is caught up in a passionate fantasy that surpasses any she could imagine. But Grey’s heart is imprisoned by dark secrets, and not until he has delivered her to her Philadelphia home does that mystery begin to unravel...


“With the same magic, sensitivity, and humor that has made CAROLINE a classic historical romance, comes NATALYA, a beguiling love story at once poignant and funny. This is a sparkling gem!” Kathe Robin, Romantic Times

“Cynthia Wright is back! Are you in for a great read.” New York Times Bestselling Author Catherine Coulter

“If you haven’t read Cynthia Wright, what are you waiting for?” Bestselling Author Barbara Bretton (less)
ebook, 386 pages
Published March 2013 by Boxwood Manor Book (first published September 13th 1991)
Cynthia  Wright
Author Information:  My career as a novelist began when I was twenty-three, with a phone call from New York announcing that CAROLINE would be published by Ballantine Books. Can you imagine my excitement? I went on to write 12 more bestselling historical romances set in Colonial America, Regency England & America, Medieval England & France, and the American West.

My novels have won many awards over the years, but what means most are readers' messages like this one: "When I read your books, I can't wait to turn the page, but never want the story to end." It's been a thrill to have all my novels published as eBooks (newly edited, with gorgeous new covers!), and I have also released an all-new Raveneau Novel, TEMPEST! I am currently working on a romance set in Cornwall in 1798 called SMUGGLER'S MOON.

Product Review - DSpeed Vitamin D3 1000 IU -

DSpeed Vitamin D3 1000 IU
Product:  D Speed - fast-melt Vitamin D3

Review:  These pills taste great and dissolve fast in your mouth - my kids hate swallowing pills so these make a great alternative for them to use instead of making the pills go down with lots of apple sauce.

Vitamin D is needed for everyone to help their immune system and bones - I know that in the wintertime I do not get enough sun and I end up getting sick because of it as the winter progresses - and in the spring I always am down for a week or more with the flu - I hope to avoid that this year with these vitamin D pills.  

We all know we need Vitamin D and it should be easy to get from the sunshine but with the winter and sunscreen it is tough to get the right amount to stay healthy - so these are great pills for anyone in your family - the taste is good and they are easy to take - your kids will want to take more then they should so put this bottle high to avoid an overdose - 

I received this item for an honest review.

Award Winning Patented Formula

Take 1 tablet, and let it melt in your mouth

Supports immune and cellular health

Delicious natural peach flavor, sugar free, gluten free, vegetarian, non-GMO ingredients, made in Switzerland, patented formula, no chalky aftertaste

Replenish this nutrient to fight off possible Vitamin D deficiencies, especially prevalent in winter.
with a delicious taste and without water.
FREE FROM: yeast, gluten, soy, milk, dairy, sodium, preservatives, artificial coloring, sugar, and artificial flavoring.

Vitamin D information:  What diseases are associated with Vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D deficiency has been shown to play a role in almost every major disease, including:

Osteoporosis and Osteopenia
17 varieties of Cancer (including breast, prostate and colon)
Heart disease
High blood pressure
Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
Autoimmune diseases
Multiple sclerosis
Rheumatoid arthritis
Infertility and PMS
Parkinson's Disease
Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder
Alzheimer's Disease
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Chronic Pain
Periodontal disease

What is vitamin D?
Although it's called a vitamin, vitamin D is really a hormone not a vitamin. Vitamins cannot be produced by your body, we get them from dietary sources, whereas hormones like vitamin D are made in your body. It's your body's only source of calcitrol (activated vitamin D), the most potent steroid hormone in the body.

What does vitamin D do?
Like all steroid hormones, vitamin D is involved in making hundreds of enzymes and proteins, which are crucial for preserving health and preventing disease. It has the ability to interact and affect more than 2,000 genes in the body. It enhances muscle strength and builds bone. It has anti-inflammatory effects and bolsters the immune system. It helps the action of insulin and has anti-cancer activity. This is why vitamin D deficiency has been linked with so many of the diseases of modern society. Because of its vast array of benefits, maintaining optimal levels of D is essential for your health.

Where do I get vitamin D from?
The only 2 reliable sources of vitamin D are the sun and supplements. Sunlight exposure is the only reliable way for your body to generate vitamin D. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. In fact, this is such an efficient system that most of us make approx. 20,000 units of vitamin D after only 20 minutes of summer sun without suntan lotion (or clothes!) That's 100 times more than the government recommends per day! There must be a good reason why we make so much in so little time.

You do not generate vitamin D when sitting behind a glass window, whether in your car or at home because these UV rays cannot penetrate glass to generate vitamin D in your skin Also sunscreens, even weak ones, almost completely block your body's ability to generate vitamin D.

The other reliable source is vitamin D3 supplements (not vitamin D2)

Only about 10% of your vitamin D comes from diet, so it is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your food.

What are the food sources of vitamin D?
1. Fish liver oils, such as cod liver oil. 
Fatty wild fish like mackerel, salmon, halibut, tuna, sardines and herring
Fortified milk, orange juice and cereal
3. Dried Shitake mushrooms
4. Egg yolks

But to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from food, you would have to eat at least 5 servings of salmon a day or drink 20 cups of fortified milk

Book Review - Black Knight Box Set :Hell on Wheels, In Rides Trouble and Rev It Up - Julie Ann Walker

Title: Black Knight Box Set :Hell on Wheels, In Rides Trouble and Rev It Up

Author: Julie Ann Walker

Stars 4 out of 5

Reviews:   I original found this series at my local online library and enjoyed the series but I wasn't really willing to pay six dollars a book so when I found it on sale when the bundle first came out so I bought it for 1.99. The three books are Hell on Wheel, In Rides Trouble and Rev it up three different stories of Alpha Males and the women who love them.

Book 1 Hell On Wheel 
is about Nate Weller aka Ghost who works for a black ops group and loses his best friend Grigg on a mission but is unable to tell his family the truth about what Grigg had been doing. Nate tells the family Grigg died working on at the motorcycle shop.  Ali, Grigg little sister, and Nate's dreams girl find herself in trouble and the first place she heads is to the motorcycle shop Nate and her brother worked at. This book introduces you to motorcycle riding, tattooed scary looking ex seal, ex-marines and former FBI agents. 

Ali is scared that someone is trying to kill her and when Nate discover her brother Grigg secret he will do anything to keep her safe and soon find he is falling in love with her. After one night together he decides he can't live without him but Ali isn't so she sure what she wants. 

Synopsis:  He’s the bad boy she’s always wanted...

Nate “Ghost” Weller has loved Ali Morgan nearly half his life. But he’s done something so heinous he’s convinced she’ll never forgive him if she discovers the truth, so he keeps his feelings and his secrets to himself. Then she blows into town with a mother lode of bad guys on her tail and Nate can’t deny she’s in serious trouble. Unfortunately, he’s the only one who can help her.

She’s the good girl he’s kept at arm’s length...

Ali knows Nate as the most solemn, aloof man on the planet. Sadly, he’s also the sexiest. For years she’s avoided him, unable to stomach his dark scowls and brooding silences… especially when she secretly yearns for his touch. Now she must rely on him to save her from the malevolent shadows ghosting her every move. When the bullets explode, so does their passion. But can love really conquer all? Or are some things just too terrible to forgive?

Book 2 In Rides Trouble 
give her you a quick gimps of the past why Frank Knight the boss of the black ops group chose Chicago as his head quarters. You also get to know Becky the crack mechanic and owner of the motorcycle shop.  From the day Becky met Frank Knight she was head over heels in love with him but at the end of book one Becky decides she needs a changed and heads off with her best friend on a must needed vacation. However they end of getting kidnapped by pirates and the Black Knights come to their rescue the girls and Frank Knight finds he has fallen in love with the young spit fire. They have one night of passion and Frank decides he can't live with out her but she is kidnapped before he can tell her. I personally liked this book the best because lets face it who doesn't love a Becky.

Synopsis:   Rebel with a Cause

Becky "Rebel" Reichert never actually goes looking for trouble. It just has a tendency to find her. Like the day Frank Knight showed up at her door, wanting to use her motorcycle shop as a cover for his elite special ops team. But Becky prides herself on being able to hang with the big boys-she can weld, drive, and shoot just as well as any of them.

Man with a Mission

Munitions, missiles, and mayhem are Frank's way of life. The last thing the ex-SEAL wants is for one brash blonde to come within fifty feet of anything that goes boom. Yet it's just his rotten luck when she ends up in a hostage situation at sea. Come hell or high water, he will get her back-whether she says she needs him or not.

Book 3 Rev It up
Jake Sommer aka Snake comes to join the Knight as well as tries to convince Michelle Carter aka Michelle Knight that she is still in love with him.  This book bounces you between the past and present and we see why Michelle made the decisions that changed the course of both their lives. I can't really tell you anymore because it will give away big spoilers.  I can say he needs one night with you to make her remember why she loved him. Again with the "One Night Of Passion."

Synopsis:  He's the heartbreaker she left behind...

He Never Misses a Target

Jake "the Snake" Sommers earned his SEAL code name by striking quickly and quietly—and with lethal force. That's also how he broke Michelle Carter's heart. It was the only way to keep her safe—from himself. Four long years later, Jake is determined to get a second chance. But to steal back into Michelle's loving arms, Jake is going to have to prove he can take things slow. Real slow...

She Aims to Make Him Beg

Michelle Carter has never forgiven Jake for being so cliché as to "love her and leave her." But when her brother, head of the Black Knights elite ops agency, ticks off the wrong mobster, she must do the unimaginable: place her life in Jake's hands. No matter what they call him, this man is far from cold-blooded. And once he's wrapped around her heart, he'll never let her go...

This is why I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars because almost every single book has the same theme in one way or another Alpha Male who doesn't want to fall in love and a woman who is willing to have one night with them because they have to sleep with the guys.  They have sex something happens to the woman and bam the Alpha males realizes that he is in love with her and has to save her life.  Now do not get me wrong each is its own story but at the same time I also felt like I was reading the same story over and over again.

The series has some great action scenes that are all well written and the romance\sex is hot and heavy but I could do with a little change in the series.
