I’m excited to be a part of’s Blog Tour for

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

I’ve read a sample pre-publication book and can assure you it is one story you don’t want to put down.  Compelling characters and so many layers of the title are built into the story.  I like books with an inspirational message – not in-your-face preaching, but one where you learn from (or despite) the characters’ decisions and actions.  Darlington’s multi-layered story delivered time and again leaving me not just refreshed – but enriched.  Two of the main characters are teens so I’d recommend this book as excellent reading for pre-teen to the most ‘mature’ readers! The mystery is also a fascinating journey into the world of antique books. Even the cover was outstanding and this is one time you can judge the book by its cover. – Delores

So here goes – a bit of a taste and tomorrow, an interview with the author!

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?


Great job! You kept me turning the pages.
Francine Rivers, Internationally best selling author
