Publisher Description

Christy Williams finally has her life on track. She’s putting her past behind her and working hard to build her career as a buyer for a large used bookstore. So far she’s been able to keep her drinking problem at bay, but everything changes when she lands a DUI on her thirty-third birthday.

When she’s accused of a crime she didn’t commit at work, she has nowhere to turn. She yearns for her estranged family, especially her younger sister May whom she hasn’t seen for fifteen years. Now the owner of a failing cattle ranch in Elk Valley, Colorado, May couldn’t possibly want a relationship with the big sister who didn’t even say good-bye all those years ago, could she?

Soon Christy’s fleeing from her shattered dreams, her abusive ex-boyfriend, and God. Could the Triple Cross Ranch be the safe haven she’s searching for, or will May’s new-found faith give her even more reason to reject Christy?

Thicker than Blood

Amazing how God works.

Thicker Than Blood, #1

I was pulled in to the character Christy with her alcohol and other addictions. She became a real person. The plot came together well with some surprises. I like the ending with the sense of more to come in the next book of the series as well as justice served. The reminder of the peace surrendering to God brings is special.

Thicker than blood

This book was really good to read. I enjoyed it very much! I recommend it. One thing that was my favorite part of the book was how much Christy realizes at the end that she really is loved and that she DOES have family.
