Flirtin' with Jesus

By Robert Paul Blumenstein

General fiction, Action & adventure | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


Flirtin’ with Jesus is the first book of The Ascension Trilogy. Conrad LaGrone, a middle aged divorcé, is one step from homelessness. Plagued by a life of bad choices, he meets the dynamic and loving Bonnie Adair who holds out a ray of hope to him, that he might set his life on the right path. However, Detective Dietzel, a dirty cop, Barry Brantley, a sinister crime boss, and the Reverend Isaiah “Bubba” Brizelle, a dubious evangelical preacher, have designs to derail Conrad from obtaining his new lease on life. The story is peppered with sex and violence, as well as “sacred” institutions fraught with corruption, which the reader may find unsettling, though equally amusing. The reader is riveted to the character of Conrad LaGrone, at times commiserating with his failings, and at other times, cheering him on to success.



“Having been raised in rural Georgia, I was fortunate to have lived in many marvelous worlds: my private domain of the open countryside, hobnobbing with raw rural folk, and eventually, witnessing the advent of suburban sprawl, which gobbled up every farm in sight. Change and diversity set me on the path of exploration and a fascination with where I fit into this beautiful collage. My father, a research chemist, taught me how to ask questions-- how to examine the unknown, how to dig beneath the surface. The answers he sought were in the laboratory-- mine are in a world filled with people, people who are revealed as characters in a story, discovered between the pages.” Robert Paul Blumenstein lived in both the Carolinas before finding his way to Virginia where he completed his graduate studies in theatre, and now resides. “So far, Richmond has never let me down when it comes to diversity and change. There’s always an ample plenty of characters here.”
