Not only is 'Thicker than Water' a short novel, it's also very easy to read, with little in the way of description for description's sake. Without any verbosity, I found myself turning the pages quickly, utterly absorbed in the characters and their unfolding lives. Characters are detailed just enough to allow the reader to relate to them, and to will them on. I feared for Julia, when backed into a corner, but our handsome hero, Jake, appears and saves the day.
The novel surprised me, being unable as I was to identify the killer before time. I only wished it had revealed a little more detail about the `Scrimshaw Doll.' I am aware, however, that this book is part of a `Scrimshaw Doll' series, and that the mystery of it may be explained more in the other books.
`Thicker than Water' is a fast-paced romantic read - perfect as the nights draw in. I enjoyed snuggling down and getting lost in the fantasy - what girl doesn't dream, after all, of her own Jake Devlin?
A ten-year-old accidental killing and an ancient cursed doll are only part of Julia Bennett's problems. When she returns to her hometown of Covington, Oklahoma for an old friend's funeral, she's thrust into the middle of a murder case.
Thicker Than Water yanked me in immediately, made me wonder after each action, each scene, each chapter--what happens next? Because of Ms. Dean's easy writing style, the logical storyline and the oh-so real and recognizable characters, I couldn't stop reading until I reached the end. Jake and Julia seem like people we know and love, and deal with every day. I enjoyed watching them interact and deal with each other. Even the secondary characters are strong in their little foibles.
Author Alicia Dean did an excellent job creating a suspenseful story with real characters. Her book is reader-friendly. Without a doubt, once you finish Thicker Than Water, you'll want to find more tales by Alicia Dean. Check out her other books. You won't be disappointed.
Books in the Tales of the Scrimshaw Doll series are always fascinating reads.
