Blog Tour - Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer - REVIEW

Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer
Release Date: December 29th 2015
Kensington Books


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…

This book... 

How do you use words and write a review after a book took you by surprise and gripped you from the first sentence? I mean yes, the cover is hot and beautiful and the synopsis sounds amazing and I knew I would like it but not SO much. And now I'm here giggling and looking like an idiot, because scenes pass through my head and everything is so... SO.

I don't want to talk too much and spoil it for you or be too enthusiastic and hype it up, and after that you'll be too scared to start it. I will say that I loved it, and it was very very good and from the first chapter I knew that I will like the characters, that their relationship is going to be deep and special and complicated, and full of emotions and feelings of all kinds.

It happens to me very rarely to like a character but two characters from the start and also to enjoy the plot, the writing style and the whole book from the beginning to the end. So, this book is amazing, it has a special place now in my head and in my heart and I will recommend it to everyone who wants something really really good, with no complaints.

I wouldn't say that this is a hard book but it makes you think a lot, about yourself, about life, about parents, friends, people, appearances, misconceptions, lies, words. It has so much depth and at the same time is so easy, cute, lovely and fresh and it warms you and keeps you cosy as the warmest blanket on the planet. It's a book that can leave you cry with ginarmous tears and at the same time smiling and feeling fuzzy inside, is very hard to explain this contrast. 

And I was saying that I enjoyed both the characters and the writing style, because about the plot I won't say a word. That is yours and just yours to discover and enjoy this gem of a book! Read it! 

The writing style is so simplistic but at the same time so strong and emotional, very gripping, sometimes it is so much suspense and action and tension and you forget to breathe, but then goes a nice moment and you feel relaxed and dreamy and fluffy <3 It's such a complicated and complex mix and I try to explain it, and I come out just with bits and pieces. The characters seem so real and there are so many layers in their lives and in their personalities and together they are so cute and even stronger and loveable. I think it will be a shame to not read this book and to not meet them. 

So, just go and read this book, eat it, love it, snuggle with it and after that we can fangirl about it!

About the Author:

Brigid Kemmerer was born in Omaha, Nebraska, though her parents quickly moved her all over the United States, from the desert in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the lakeside in Cleveland, Ohio, and several stops in between, eventually settling near Annapolis, Maryland. Brigid started writing in high school, and her first real “novel” was about four vampire brothers causing a ruckus in the suburbs. Those four brothers are the same boys living in the pages of The Elemental Series, so Brigid likes to say she’s had four teenage boys taking up space in her head for the last seventeen years. (Though sometimes that just makes her sound nuts.)

Brigid writes anywhere she can find a place to sit down (and she’s embarrassed to say a great many pages of The Elemental Series were written while sitting on the floor in the basement of a hotel while she was attending a writers’ conference). Most writers enjoy peace and quiet while writing, but Brigid prefers pandemonium. A good thing, considering she has three boys in the house, ranging in age from an infant to a teenager.

While writing STORM, it’s ironic to note that Brigid’s personal life was plagued by water problems: her basement flooded three times, her roof leaked, her kitchen faucet broke, causing the cabinet underneath to be destroyed by water, the wall in her son’s room had to be torn down because water had crept into the wall, and her bedroom wall recently developed a minor leak. Considering SPARK, book 2 in the series, is about the brother who controls fire, Brigid is currently making sure all the smoke detectors in her house have batteries.

Brigid loves hearing from people, and she probably won’t refer to herself in the third person like this if you actually correspond with her. She has a smartphone surgically attached to her person nearby at all times, and email is the best way to reach her. Her email address is
