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…
I adored the Merrick boys so when I knew we were getting a whole new book, once again from the male perspective AND by Kemmerer, I was all in.
No worries about not liking Thomas or the setting, or any other characters, I had complete trust that Kemmerer would deliver one heck of a story and mystery that would keep me turning the pages and on the edge of my seat and she came through like a champ.
In fact, I really did love this and the surprises along the way were all Kemmerer, what I have come to love and expect for her.
If there is one thing Kemmerer knows how to do, it is write a guy that is easy to feel for, fall for, and love and she doesn't deviate from that equation at all in this story.
There was so much going on in this story, some foreshadowed, some speculation, and most, yet to come.
I have no idea if this book will be part of a series but with the ending like it was, with so many things that were left out there in the open, I truly am hoping that it will be because I want more. Thomas needs more of his story told. More of his background and that of his family's and I hope like heck we get it.
