A Novel To Look Forward To


Now available for preorder from Christianbook.com - Thicker Than Blood
by CJ Darlington, the latest winner of the Christian Writers Guild's 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, who she abandoned in their childhood after their parents’ untimely deaths. Soon Christy’s fleeing from her shattered dreams, her ex-boyfriend, and God. May’s Triple Cross ranch could be the safe haven she’s searching for, but will the sisters realize that each possesses what the other desperately needs before it’s too late?

Here's what people are saying...

“C. J. Darlington is the kind of new novelist that makes us at the Christian Writers Guild proud. With careful attention to detail, emotion, and scene-setting, C.J. Darlington scores with her debut effort. Here is a special writer you won’t want to miss.”
Jerry B. Jenkins, New York Times best-selling author and owner of the Christian Writers Guild

“If you love a good read filled with adventure and ultimately redemption, I encourage you to brew the tea, settle into your favorite chair and pick up the page turner that is C.J. Darlington’s imaginative new novel of a modern day sisterhood that triumphs over separation and the raw challenges of life to find the real endurance of both family ties and God’s amazing grace.”
Rebecca St. James, Grammy Award-winning recording artist
