It’s a Banner Day in the Bartels House

My husband‘s first traditionally published novel releases today! You probably already read some of the great reviews that have been coming in. We couldn’t be happier. If you like suspense/thrillers, like edge-of-your seat action, like getting blindsided by plot twists, and like your humor on the sarcastic side, this is your read!


Yesterday, Parker Saint’s only concern was his swiftly rising star power.

Today, he’s just trying to stay alive.

Parker Saint is living the dream. A cushy job at a thriving megachurch has him on the verge of becoming a bestselling author and broadcast celebrity—until life takes an abrupt turn that lands him on the wrong side of the law. To avoid a public scandal, he agrees to consult with the police on a series of brutal murders linked by strange religious symbols scrawled on each victim.

Parker tries to play the expert, but he is clearly in over his head. Drawn ever deeper into a web of intrigue involving a demanding detective, a trio of secretive Vatican operatives, and a centuries-old conspiracy to conceal a mysterious relic, he realizes for the first time that the battle between good and evil is all too real—and that the killer is coming back . . . this time for him.

  1. This is quite a year for the Bartels family and I couldn’t be happier for you 🙂 Now it’s your son’s turn to publish a book 😉
    Your husband’s book sounds like a best seller to me!! Fingers crossed. I think the story is one my husband will really enjoy. It’ll make a nice Christmas present 🙂 I’m off to Amazon!

  2. Congratulations! Playing Saint sounds terrific. Love the cover, too. Looks like one my husband and I will squabble over who gets to read it first. I’ll do an Amazon/Goodreads review after reading.
