On his own

Thomas Bellweather hasn’t been in town long. Just long enough for his newlywed mother to be murdered, and for his new stepdad’s cop colleagues to decide Thomas is the primary suspect.

Not that there’s any evidence. But before Thomas got to Garretts Mill there had just been one other murder in twenty years.

The only person who believes him is Charlotte Rooker, little sister to three cops and, with her soft hands and sweet curves, straight-up dangerous to Thomas. Her best friend was the other murder vic. And she’d like a couple answers.

Answers that could get them both killed, and reveal a truth Thomas would die to keep hidden…

I received this book for free from NetGalley, Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review

Thicker than Water is a YA, standalone novel with a twist by Author Brigid Kemmerer.

“Loneliness is a funny disease. You don’t realize how badly you’re infected until someone gives you a shot of contentment – and then it wears off.”

The story opener sinks its teeth into us and doesn’t let go, promising a story that will fill our minds for days to come. It gives us a good picture of where Thomas is at in this point his life and briefly introduces important people that will create a story plot and conclusion unlike any other.

“I feel like I started with a twenty-four piece puzzle box, but inside is a five hundred-piece double-sided puzzle with no straight edges.”

Thicker than Water was written in dual points of view, being told by both Thomas and Charlotte, which I absolutely loved. There is something about reading a well-written story synchronously told in the male and female points of view. It offers a totally different perspective into the thoughts and feelings exposed in the story. Mystery and the unknown swirled through every page. But underlying that was faint whispers of romantic intrigue and side pursuit. The last 25% was like an out of control train that couldn’t move fast enough as it barreled down the track at a million miles an hours with dozens of boxcars behind it. Each bump and jolt caused my heart to beat out of my chest, and made me feel excitement, fear, apprehension, and finally contentment. A great additional to this author’s already wonderful repertoire of books.

“I feel like I’m trapped in a glass box with my own twisting emotions, watching everyone else at a social event.”
