Blood Bayou

From a “spellbinding storyteller” (Romantic Times) whose novels have sold more than ten million copies comes a riveting tale of romance and suspense that explores what true forgiveness means—both in the world at large and in the home.

Camille St. James is advocating the exoneration of Chester Pelham, a man on Death Row convicted of murdering a woman in Blood Bayou. Within days of his release, another woman is brutally murdered, and Chester is immediately the prime suspect. There’s a merciless killer on the loose, and Camille’s life is in danger on all fronts. Did she make a grave mistake by helping Chester? Meanwhile, the Pelham case brings her ex-husband Jack back into her life, and he longs to make amends with Camille. A
recovering alcoholic with a dark past, Jack has managed to turn his life around and become a minister. Camille is doubtful of the sincerity of his conversion, swearing she will never forgive him. Camille looks to the law as the guiding force in her life, while Jack looks to God. Is it possible for this couple to rekindle their love in spite of their insurmountable differences? By uniquely combining elements of romance, suspense, and spirituality, Blood Bayou provides not only a taut, suspenseful story but an illuminating perspective on guilt, exoneration, and forgiveness.



Kathy Ireland - Real Solutions for Busy Moms

Kathy Ireland communicates with moms every day: online, at the grocery store, at church, at speaking engagements, and on her company website. She is grateful that her conversations don't center around beauty tips or requests for autographs or advice on how to dress. Rather, she has the honor of hearing from real women who struggle with balancing the responsibilities of marriage, raising children, managing a household or career or both, and finding any time left to take care of themselves.

As the involved mom of three very active children, the supportive wife of an emergency room doctor, and a dynamic businesswoman, Kathy knows of these struggles firsthand. She credits her strong faith in God and her parents' love and support for any success she has today and dedicates her days to finding the solutions that can make life easier for busy moms in all phases of life. As she tackles the tough financial concerns families feel today and many other issues, Kathy offers empathy and encouragement. She shares stories from her own life and wisdom she has gained through her years from teenager with a paper route to successful supermodel to mom to entrepreneur with a dream for big business.

Real Solutions for Busy Moms supports one of Kathy's favorite sayings: "You can do it all, just not all at once."

Katt's in the Cradle

When you're in the trenches, sometimes you're up to your neck in mud. That's the not-so-glamorous life of a pastor's wife.

Felicia's family is...complicated. That's putting it nicely. Now they're flying in from LA -- all at once -- to stay with her...just when her brother-in-law, Javier, and Mama aren't even speaking to each other. And the whole church will be there to witness the feud.

Mimi has a lot on her mind with her four energetic kids -- especially Milo the screamer, with his Pavarotti voice. Then her live-in alcoholic dad starts to mow their lawn at midnight.

Lisa has her hands full with loudmouth Tom Graves and the other troublemakers at Red River Assembly. Then vicious rumors start to fly about the Barton family...and the attacks and threats get increasingly personal.

Jennifer is pushing her adopted daughter, Carys, in a stroller, when she notices a black town car -- the same car she's seen several times over the past week. Could someone be following her?

The PWs plunge into an unnerving mystery...and discover what "family" really means.

Stupid About Men

Tired of Kissing Frogs?

Even the most capable and intelligent women are sometimes struck stupid when it comes to relationships with men. Maybe you're like Cinderella, who thinks that only a man can rescue her; or perhaps you are like Little Red Riding Hood, always attracted to "bad boys"; or maybe you find yourself simply settling, like Rapunzel, because you don't believe you can do any better. And somehow, you always end up kissing frogs.

No matter what kind of "stupid" you are, licensed marriage and family therapist Deborah Dunn will show you why you keep making the same mistakes with men, and will empower you to take control of who you are and become smart about life.

Mistaken Identity

Meet Laura Van Ryn and Whitney Cerak: one buried under the wrong name, one in a coma and being cared for by the wrong family.

This shocking case of mistaken identity stunned the country and made national news. Would it destroy a family? Shatter their faith? Push two families into bitterness, resentment, and guilt?

Read this unprecedented story of two traumatized families who describe their ordeal and explore the bond sustaining and uniting them as they deal with their bizarre reversal of life lost and life found.

And join Whitney Cerak, the sole surviving student, as she comes to terms with her new identity, forever altered, yet on the brink of new beginnings.

Mistaken Identity weaves a complex tale of honesty, vulnerability, loss, hope, faith, and love in the face of one of the strangest twists of circumstances imaginable.

A great book about an "ordinary" guy who becomes an NHL All-Star MVP. Howard Books
"Matter"/"God" cannot be created or destroyed, is everything and everywhere which, means "His" one and only ultimate (key word) "encompassing characteristic" is best described as "infinitely perfect." Therefore, does "Hope" (not its result) validly share that characteristic too?
Ps. All breathing human beings that ascribe to whichever societal, traditional, and/or individual “construct,” believe in “Hope” with each breath given, despite the chosen form for “appearance.”
