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…

My initial reaction upon finishing: HOLY CRAP THAT WAS GOOD!
I LOVE this cover.
Action, suspense, romance, and mystery---THICKER THAN WATER has it all. I'm usually pretty quick on the uptake when it comes to thrillers, but this one kept me guessing almost to the very end. I didn't want to put it down, I HAD to know what happened! I did not see the twist coming at all, but it elevated the story to whole new level of mind-effery.
Thomas and Charlotte are equally strong characters and as usual, Brigid Kemmerer nailed the male POV. Charlotte's family is overbearing at times, but with good reason. Having been raised by a cop myself, I particularly enjoyed the law enforcement aspect of the story.
I would love to see a sequel!
