Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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…
Halfway through this book, I was feeling disappointed. I thought I was reading some cheesy teen romance - the genre said 'paranormal romance'; where was the paranormal! But then things started to fall into place and I started to enjoy this more. The paranormal aspect of the story explains away most of the 'cheesiness'. Having said that, the ending left me without closure and with a lot of questions.
I am interested to read more of Brigid Kemmerer's books.
