Real love. Real people. Real Stories.
If you want to improve or revive your marriage, you need more than just theories of marriage from experts. You need shared experiences, to hear other couples say I've been there and to see the unique, creative, and practical solutions they have found to restore the vibrancy of their marriages.
The original, true stories in Love Is a Flame offer just that, as well as the encouragement and instruction you and your spouse need to rekindle the flame of your love.

Back on Murder by J. Mark Bertrand is a detective novel about Roland March.This out of graces detective struggles to get back his position of top detective. When the murder of a local gang leader coincides with the kidnapping of a well known teenage girl, Roland attempts to connect the two investigations, only to keep coming up short.
Looking at multiple crime scenes while living out his daily life, Bertrand is able to pull his readers into the character of Roland March. With a great plot and well developed characters this book was able to quickly grasp my attention.
From the back cover:
Houston homicide detective Roland March was once one of the best. Now he's disillusioned, cynical, and on his way out. His superiors farm him out on a variety of punishment details...until an unexpected break gives March one last chance to save his career. And his humanity.
All he has to do? Find the missing teenage daughter of a Houston evangelist that every cop in town is already looking for. But March has an inside track, a multiple murder nobody else thinks is connected. Battling a new partner, an old nemesis, and the demons of his past, getting to the truth could cost March everything. Even his life.

I like my name. I adore my name. I thank my parents for not naming me a common name. My sister has a nice name too. Lara.
My parents say we weren't named after anyone but they did have two cats before they had two daughters. The cats were named Sua and Dara. Daughters are Suzanne and Lara. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Anyway, it annoys me when someone takes it on themselves to shorten/change my name. I've threatened to hit people. Haven't ever done it though, but there's always a first time.
What? Like you don't have things that bother you? *insert eye roll here*
So the phone rings at the church today.
"Good afternoon (insert church name here), this is Suzanne."
Okay. He's already lost me.
He's mumbling incoherently about something and I'm thinking, "It's SUZANNE."
"I used to come to your church a long time ago, do you remember me?"
"Um, no, I've only been here a few months."
"Okay, I want to give my address to some people so I'll call back tomorrow. You just keep praying for me."
