Thicker Than Water
Thomas has only just moved to town, and already he’s a murderer. Well, take that back. Every single cop in town, including his step-father seems to think he did it. There’s an entrancing girl who wants to give him a chance to prove his innocence… But will he break her too?
Thomas and Charlotte are nicely characterised, and the novel pretty much jump starts itself. I felt like I was feeling every step in the wood, and every single thing Thomas was feeling/thinking/saying. There was a hint of sexual humour, but also thoughtfulness and kindness in there. There was just a few things that bothered me…
I guess they are teenagers. But some teenagers are just not that bright… I mean, really. You really are going against your parents here. Are you incapable of thinking about anything but sex? Then again… I didn’t realise there was going to be a hint of creepiness in this novel. I can’t even tell you about it, because its such a twister you’d never forgive me for spoiling it for you!
It says on the back that Charlotte’s best friend was the other murder victim. Which is not true! Nicole is still alive, and sassy, thank you very much. Don’t trust those blurbs people, just don’t trust them.
Learning about the future would have been nice and all that, but I actually found it to have quite a good ending (I’ve read quite a lot of novels lately where this lets the book down). The novel winds up sensibly. I’m going to be generous and give it 4 stars.
