A back-to-my-roots sort of post today as I participate in Title Trakk co-founder C.J. Darlington's blog tour for her debut novel, Thicker Than Blood.
I'm still reading the well-crafted and well-placed novel - in between frequent Tea Party meetings and duties! - so today I'm going to give you a sneak preview of the book.

2008 Christian Writers Guild Operation First Novel Contest!
Christy Williams finally has her life on track. She’s putting her past behind her and working hard to build a career as an antiquarian book buyer. But things begin to unravel when a stolen Hemingway first edition is found in her possession, framing her for a crime she didn’t commit. With no one to turn to, she yearns for her estranged younger sister, May, whom she abandoned after their parents’ untimely deaths. Soon, Christy’s fleeing from her shattered dreams, her ex-boyfriend, and God. Could May’s Triple Cross Ranch be the safe haven she’s searching for? Will the sisters realize that each possesses what the other desperately needs before it’s too late?
And I'll leave you with the book trailer to whet your appetite for this down-to-ranch story of sibling rivalry - and love:
