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…






Thicker Than Water is a mystery thriller that has an unexpected twist at the end. Thomas Bellweather is new in town, he moved after her mother married a cop officer, but not so long after she is murdered under very intriguing circumstances and Thomas is the prime suspect.


Charlotte Rooker, is a girl that meets Thomas at her mother’s funeral, problem is, she is the little sister to three town cops, which in their eyes she can’t be near Thomas, but Charlotte is adamant that Thomas isn’t what the whole town says about him, she believes in him and want to get to know him. They both go on a journey trying to find evidence to what happened to Thoma’s mother, but what they find puts them in more danger than they thought and found things Thoma’s doesn’t want anyone to know about.


The story is quite intriguing; the plot twist at the end was unexpected and changed the story completely. Brigid Kemmerer is a good writer; she plots the story in ways you just need to keep reading. I found both characters very different from her other series, the romance was good with what the story had to give. I certainly was expecting something paranormal, I just think it took a bit to get there. I will be looking forward for the next book she writes, hope there is something else to this story as I think it ended a bit faster than expected and a sequel could be written next.

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
