FLASHPOINT, by Frank Creed

Day 2 Monday

This month's tour at the Christian Fiction Review Blog is FLASHPOINT, by Frank Creed, a Biblical cyber-punk view of end times. Lots of action with unrealistic sequences that he makes you feel as though they are realistic. This is a keeper folks. If you don't go out and get a copy I'm gonna let Calamity Kid handle you. He's a “Sandman” in a “muscle cell” of the “Body of Christ” in Chicago. The year is 2036, and guess what? You were right. The politics have made things worse for believers. The muscle cells fight a battle against the One State Government. If you don't read this you have no one to blame but yourself. On a scale of 1 to 5 I give FLASHPOINT about a 7. - David Brollier

"On a scale of 1 to 5, I give it a 7". Now if I can just figure out how to add those stars on Amazon. It should get 7 stars, but they only give us five. If you know how to make it seven, lemme know.

Glad someone's reading my posts! Yeah, if they gave us a 1-10 scale we could be a little more accurate. Even then I know some authors would be wondering, "How come you didn't give me a 10?" Duh! 10s are for the great ones. FLASHPOINT is definitely one of the great ones. But most of what I read is near at least a 5 on the 1-5 scale. We've been reading some great stuff. And it continues next month with FAITH AWAKENED. Hard to believe 2 books about the same thing approached from different angles could both be so compelling. I love reviewing!

Bless you Caprice.


Tangerine by Marilynn Griffith

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is posting about Tangerine (Revell, January 2007) by Marilynn Griffith (fellow CFBA member, blogger, writer, and mother of *GULP* seven!)


Marilynn Griffith is wife to a deacon, mom to a tribe and proof that God gives second chances. Her novels include Made of Honor (Steeple Hill, Jan. 2006), Pink (Revell, Feb. 2006), Jade (Revell, June 2006), and If the Shoe Fits (Revell, 2007). Her other credits include Chicken Soup for the Christian Woman’s Soul, Cup of Comfort Devotionals and her Shades of Style series (Revell, 2006). She lives in Florida with her husband and children. To book speaking engagements or just say hello, email:


Tangerine is the third book in the Shades of Style Novels.

Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
