    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Guilty as Sin was a great way to pass the time while I sit immobile, recovering from a knee injury. I love books with mystery and thrills, and the romance that’s sparked but not yet there. This book has it all. It begins with a teenage Kate and Tommy trying for a night of teenage passion that ends with Kate’s younger brother kidnapped and murdered.

    Kate returns to the small town, suppressing memories of that night, in order to help find a missing teenage girl. Of course, this wouldn’t be a proper romance if she weren’t teamed up with Tommy, working side by side with him. Barbs are thrown but the tension soon melts and the two become a well-oiled machine, working closely to find the missing girl.

    Kate is a strong woman despite what’s been thrown at her in her past – her brother’s murder, her family’s open hostility towards her, her mistake in handling a previous missing child case and the hostile press that came as a result of that error. She just keeps trying to prove herself, more for herself I think than for anyone else. Somehow she still maintains that optimism that things are going to work out – even if not for her then at least for everyone around her.

    Tommy became a stronger man in the aftermath of that teenage night. Instead of running the family ranch with his father, he joined the Army and later formed his own private security company. He’s strong (physically, mentally, emotionally) but has the endearing charm of being able to admit when he’s wrong. Too often, though, he only admits it to himself.

    Overall, this book was enjoyable (in the way nasty murder/thriller/mysteries can be). I think if you enjoy the works of Karen Rose, Mary Burton, or Beverly Barton, you will enjoy Jami Alden.

    Great read

    I really enjoyed reading this novel. It was a very suspensful read about a seriel killer who had taken a young girl from a small town. The father of the kidnapped girl calls in a professional victims specilist that also has ties to both this town and this case. I thought it was a that i could not put down.
