Guilty By Association

From Tia’s Pen..

I met Pat Simmons in the summer of 2011, and she approached me as if we were childhood friends. She’s intriguing, engaging and downright fun. It’s no wonder that Pat is able to write books that yank you into a story just the same as her personality draws you in.  Guilty By Association is the first book I’ve read by Pat, but now it seems I’ll have to add her other novels to my already overstocked bookshelves.

Pat comfortably uses the male point of view to write the story of Kevin “Kidd” Jamieson. Kidd’s anger and bitterness about his absentee father affects every area of his life. Initially he’s not interested in the genealogy of the man he’s always hated, but Kidd loves his mother enough to accept an offer from a distant cousin that moves him to St. Louis. Soon the Jamieson legacy takes a hold of Kidd, and so does a woman named Eva Savoy.

Leave it to a woman to crumble the walls bricked up around a man’s heart. And leave it to God to heal a man’s wounded heart.  Guilty By Association is about the making of a man and the road he takes to discover his biological lineage, but more importantly how he discovers that he was adopted by God and chosen to be a part of the royal family! That’s a heritage to be proud of!

The Jamieson Legacy continues with Pat’s other upcoming releases: The Guilt Trip (June 2012) and Free From Guilt (October 2012).  Now let me introduce you to Pat Simmons!
