Book Review- The Bride Wore Blue

Book Review
The Bride Wore Blue 
By: Mona Hodgson

From the Back of the Book:
The youngest Sinclair, the family “baby”, is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?
My Thoughts:
This book is one of three.  I think a long while back I may have read the first in the series, but it has been so long that I could not remember much from the story line.  Though it was not hard to read the story without the other two books I feel that the story is really lacking in getting a good picture of the characters and their connections and feeling to each other from the other books.  I did not relate well to the main character, Vivian,  her line of thinking and bitterness toward her sisters was well annoying at times.  I also did not think the romance between her and Carter was not believable.  They just seemed to fall in love without knowing anything about each other, it was just to abrupt.    This book was ok but far from a favorite of mine.  Bottom line I give it at 3 out of 5.

PsiBands Review

Do you suffer from nausea?  I suffer from car sickness. Let me tell you it can make family vacation miserable.   I have found a product that can curb that nausea.  The PsiBand are very cute acupressure wristbands.  I love that these little bands are drug free relief.  They are FDA cleared and scientifically proven to relieve nausea due to travel/motion sickness, pregnancy, chemotherapy and anesthesia.  These bands are waterproof so they would be perfect for boat rides, or pregnant women who may want to wear them in the shower or while doing chores such as washing dishes.  They are very cute I received the dark red with white flowers, cute!! The bands are very user friendly simply place them on the wrist with the white bump in the right spot and snap into place.  There are several size options so it will fit a wide variety of people.  
The PsiBands retail at about $16 a set - one band for each wrist.  I think anyone who has dealt with nausea can tell you this is worth it for the relief!!
