Life and a last name is all that Kevin “Kidd” Jamieson received from his father, but that doesn’t stop his father’s family from seeking him out.
In Pat Simmons’ latest book, Guilty by Association, we meet Kevin Jamieson; a man with a chip on his shoulders the size of the Grand Canyon. Living in Boston with his mother and brother, he is recently unemployed and trying to make ends meet.
Enter the other Jamieson’s, Parke, Cameron and Malcolm. Seeing that there was nothing positive about him staying in Boston, he agrees to move to St. Louis with his newfound cousins. He bounces from several jobs until he is bribed to work in a nursing home/rehabilitation center to keep an eye on everyone’s favorite Stacey Adam wearing Grandma, Grandma BB, who has suffered a stroke.
On his first day, he meets Eva, a woman on fire for God and strong in her convictions. Kevin is immediately smitten with Ms. Savoy but she could care less. The more these two work together; Eva realizes that there is more to Kidd beneath that hard exterior. Through their talks, he discovers God’s grace and love. Eva manages to win over even the toughest critic, Kami, the precocious daughter of Parke and his wife Cheney.
Throughout the book the resounding message is Love and that ultimate love coming from God.
I love this series and can’t wait for the installment which will be about Kidd’s bad boy brother, Ace.
