Rating : 4 Stars
On his ownThomas 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 Frederick there had only 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 friend was the other murder vic. And she’d like a couple answersâ¦.Answers that could get them both killed, and reveal a truth Thomas would die to keep hidden.The more they dig, the more it seems the only way they’ll hear the real story is from the source–the killer. Not the kind of future plan a college recruiter likes to hear. But then, the better it works, the less likely either of them is going to have a future. . .
I choose to read âThicker Than Waterâ by Brigid Kemmerer because the plot seemed interesting and I really enjoyed the writing style of this author when I read her âElementalâsâ series.
When it comes to the writing style this book lived up to my expectations â but within the plot something happened that I maybe (looking back and thinking about the Elementalâs) should have expected but really honestly I did not as the Blurb gives you not indication.
The story itself is a solid one that has well developed characters and it can hold itself in a comparison to other novels with a similar plotline.But there is this âtwistâ that on one side makes this novel really a Brigid Kemmerer but on the other lets me struggle a little.
Because this âelementâ somehow might be a good explanations but is also kind of âfar offâ the plot and appears kind of suddenly that it leaves you with a âwait whatâ moment.
Thinking about it â this twist might just be the reason others will love the novel. But for me the result of this twist was .. (I canât explain without spoilers)
I know this all sounds like I think this book is not good â but thatâs not true â A book is not automatically bad just because I do not agree with the author.
In fact you should give it a try and if you read her âElementalâsâ series you might just be open minded enough if given a fair warning (which I did just now)
