Bound by Guilt by C.J. Darlington blog tour! Blog Tours Presents:

Bound by Guilt
by C.J. Darlington
Published by Tyndale House

Shuttled between foster homes, Roxi Gold will do anything to fit in. Soon she’s traveling the country stealing rare books from unsuspecting bookstores. Police officer Abby Dawson has seen the worst of society—and not just at work. One fateful night, both their lives are changed forever. One searches for justice, the other finds herself on the run. Will the power of forgiveness set them free?

Bound by Guilt is a great second installment to the Thicker Than Blood series by C.J. Darlington.  With many of the same characters as supporting characters there are some new ones that come into play and take center stage.  I really enjoyed the new spin on the book heist except that some unexpected events left damaging effects.  Great story telling on C.J. Darlington's part!

Those damaging effects play out across families and towns and show that love and forgiveness can release those who are in fact "Bound by Guilt".  Whether it is telling the truth or putting in the time for the crime, and being surrounded by loved ones can release one from guilt they may be carrying with them. Bound by Guilt was written with great emotion and care.

And, if you love books, you'll love these stories...  You get to hear about first editions and rare classics that are apparently worth committing crimes over to some people.  This is noted by the author as being a part of her book that is based on true stories.  I myself love books and it was very interesting to read about that part of the book business.  Although, I hope it isn't usually so costly to the human species!

If you haven't read it yet, I hope you also pick up and enjoy reading Bound by Guilt as much as I just did!

Great job! You kept me turning the pages.
