Roxi Gold feels like a throwaway. Shuttled from one foster home to another for most of her life, she longs for a real family and a place to call home. She’ll do anything to fit in and please her new guardian—even if it’s against the law. Soon she’s traveling the country in an RV stealing rare books from unsuspecting bookstores even as guilt hounds her.

Police officer Abby Dawson has witnessed the worst of society, and not just at work. Her high-powered attorney ex-husband has wrested her daughter away from her in a bitter custody battle, and she’s lucky if she sees her daughter at all. The job she once loved has become a chore, the world isn’t any safer, and her life seems to have no purpose.

One fateful night a botched robbery changes both Abby’s and Roxi’s lives forever. While Abby searches for justice, Roxi finds herself on the run in the small town of Elk Valley, Colorado. Will the power of forgiveness set them free, or will they both remain bound by guilt?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

C. J. Darlington has done it again, with this second book in the Thicker than Blood series. The intrigue, suspense and redemption all combine to make this a “hard to put down” book. God’s love is evident on each page.


Darlington has created a wonderful story! The characters are all so wonderfully created and ones that the reader will empathize with throughout the tears, joy and growth. I highly recommend this novel and author!


This book had me riveted from the beginning. I loved the Christian aspect that threaded its way through the story while still managing to make the story seem real, what real people would feel and experience. Not a lot of preaching going on yet the Christian theme was ever present.


The plot twists kept me on my toes the whole time. There were a couple of times I was talking aloud saying things like: “No she wouldn’t! That couldn’t happen! Oh, my, it just happened.” Or “Wait! Nooooooo!!” In short, this book really kept my attention.


C. J. Darlington has a unique style of writing which does not depend on romance overpowering all the rest of the story. Her stories show love in a very realistic way where it includes family and close friend ships. She holds with each line. This series deals with tough truths, family, pain, and God’s amazing love.
