Book Review : Bound by Guilt by C.J. Darlington

Bound by Guilt kept me up late at night wondering what would happen next. And there wasn’t a good place to stop. It seemed every scene had a cliffhanger!

Backcover copy : 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?

I read C.J. Darlington‘s first novel,Thicker Than Blood, and reviewed it here. That was an awesome novel. This novel is even better–and I didn’t think that was possible 🙂

Bound by Guilt mesmerized me from page one. The characters were deep and three dimensional. The plot was well thought out and integrated with a strong subplot. What kept me turning each page were the surprises. The characters did unexpected things and made curious choices, yet none of it came from left field–all the surprises made sense, after the fact of course 🙂 The ending was probably my favorite of any book. You must read it yourself to know what I am talking about!
