Book Rate: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Thicker Than Water is definitely one of the top ARCs I’ve read this year.
I was hooked right from the first few sentences! The characters sounded interesting, the plot intriguing and the writing captivating. It was the type of book that I chose to read over sleeping.
The suspense grew with every page I turned until I begun reaching the end and the storyline sort of felt like it was quickly wrapping itself up because the book had a maximum limit of pages or something… That disappointed me a bit, I felt like it grew to be so fantastic through the beginning and middle that it’s a shame the quick development of the ending it got…
But besides that, wow, great read! I specially recommend if you liked Gone Girl but are also a fan of paranormal plots.
And I will certainly stay tuned for more from Brigid Kemmerer!
P.S.: Sorry for the short review but this really is the kind of book that should not be spoiled even a tiny bit!

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.
They are looking for answers, answers that could get them both killed, and reveal a truth Thomas would die to keep hidden…
