Sweet and Sassy Sixteeners: Day Seven- Brigid Kemmerer!

Posted November 7, 2015 by Nori in Giveaway, My Features / 8 Comments

It’s time to meet the 6th featured author of the SSS! Introducing…Brigid Kemmerer!

Thicker Than Water
Brigid Kemmerer
Release Date: January 2016
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children’s

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…

Once the car is in park, JB looks at me hard. “Proof: Look at what you did to your cute little girlfriend last night.”

I stare at him.

“I heard the charges,” he says.

“I didn’t do any of that. I didn’t break into her house.”

“I’d bet you’ve done a lot of things you don’t remember doing.”

I think of waking in the middle of the night. Walking down the hallway. Finding Mom’s body.

I think about the deadbolt, the lack of clues.

I swallow.

“Think about it,” he says. “Really think about it.”

I didn’t hurt my mother. I didn’t hurt Charlotte.

But I think about our relationship so far, the way we’ve come together over the last few weeks. Every time we’re close, I feel as though I can’t get enough of her. It takes all of my self-control to keep from pressing down on the accelerator until we’re going a hundred miles per hour, leaving clothes in our wake.

Innocent little Charlotte, climbing in my lap in the car, jerking the shirt over her head.

Sweet Charlotte, watching my lips or tracking my movements.

Her indrawn breath when I said, Don’t make me pick you up and put you in the chair. The excitement that coursed through me when I thought about doing it anyway.

“I was a gentleman,” I whisper.

“I know,” he says. “And I think that was the whole problem.”

    I really want to get my hands on this book! I read and loved the Elemental series and can’t wait to read this new one from her!

  2. To steal a line from my dhampire friend Rose, “Sweet sassy molassy!” I think it’s fitting given the post, hehe. This book sounds like lots of fun and tense suspense. Definitely would love to read it and the author chose a great excerpt to share. Thanks, Nori! 🙂

    I refuse to read the excerpt, because I can never deal with the waiting afterwards (this is a general policy of mine)– but if these characters are anywhere as endearing as the Merricks, I’m done for.
