The Jamieson Family Legacy series follows the lives of the two Jamieson brothers in Boston, Kidd and Ace and their cousin Cameron from St. Louis. Kidd, the older brother, is struggling with anger and resentment issues toward his absentee father who never married his mother, but had the audacity to demand his illegitimate sons carry his last name Jamieson. Ace, on the other hand, is on a collision course with disaster as he shows how much a "chip off the old block" he is when it comes to women. Their highly educated MIT graduate cousin, Cameron Jamieson, is all about saving his family from self-destruction. Through genealogy research, Cameron's mission is to show his cousins their worth as eleventh generation descendants of a royal African tribe and give them a choice: to be angry black men or accept the challenge to become strong successful black men.
The Jamieson men in this three book series are challenged with accepting that the past and the present are both in God's hand. Without Him they can't move forward toward their future blessings. The bonus storyline is one that progresses the story of the much-loved Grandma B.B. character from author Pat Simmon's previous Guilty books and her new sidekick, Mrs. Valentine.
Guilty by Association is the story of Kevin "e;Kidd"e; Jamieson. Kidd has a chip on his shoulder because of his absentee father. How dare his father insist that his sons carry his last name when he did nothing but abandon his family? As far as he's concerned the Jamieson name is worthless and it shows as his anger seeps out into every area of his life and he carelessly leaves a trail of destruction wherever he goes.
When Kidd receives an invitation from a distant cousin, Parke Jamieson VI to come to St. Louis for a visit, he is hesitant but accepts almost as a dare. Initially he bumps heads with Parke but when a series of events involving a dog named Silent Killer, a pair of Stacy Adams shoes, and a couple of women of faith, take place, Kidd's raging storm is challenged.
Will determination to keep up his bad boy attitude and hatred for the Jamieson name destroy Kidd? Or, will the information he's given about his father's family and a few unexpected encounters break him and turn his life upside down?
