My Latest Story by Cindy Flores Martinez

You may have read my novella, Three Plus Three, which appeared in Valentine Pets and Kisses a couple of years ago. Recently, I decided to rewrite the story and change the title. It's now known as, Since You Went Away, and it's available in the new Christian Romance collection, Be Still, My Heart.

The story is the same and yet there's so much that's different...


Violet’s husband passed away unexpectedly nearly two years ago. It’s been almost a year since Tom lost his wife to an illness. Finding love again is the last thing on their minds. Besides, Violet is busy selling her home and finding a new place to live now that her daughter has gone away to college. Tom’s days are filled with working hard and raising his teenage son. After their paths cross at the dog park, they have a chance meeting on Main Street in the small town of Seal Beach. A series of events keeps bringing them together, and they begin to form a friendship that threatens to turn into love.
