Six years after floods made her family homeless, Jess Dyer has found safety on the wild North Yorkshire coast. Her sister-in-law Ruth is forging a role as doctor to their community of refugees and the rock around which the family revolves.
But the family is haunted by memories of the journey north and the loss of their mother Sonia. And their community is under attack from the local population.
When Jess answers a distress call at sea, she brings strangers to their village and puts Ruth in jeopardy. Jess must calm the community, mount a rescue mission and keep her brother Ben from tipping into insanity.
Will she succeed? And will she find Ruth before it’s too late?
‘Thicker Than Water’ is a gripping thriller about family, belonging and revenge.
I have read a few books by this author now and I really enjoy her writing style so I was delighted to be able to get my hands on a copy of Thicker Than Water – it is a very well written story and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I thought that the plot was well planned out and I loved how I was gripped by it from the first few chapters. It was easy to read and follow and I liked the twists that the author added in along the way to give it an edge of added suspense.
I thought that she had developed the characters really well and I enjoyed getting to know them as the book progressed, and I thought their interaction was excellent.
Four stars from me for this one, well written with a great flow and some really enjoyable characters – highly recommended!

What does that mean?
In short, I want my stories to make your pulse race and your brain tick.
Do you often get through a thriller at breakneck pace but are left with little sense of what the book was really about? Do you sometimes read literary fiction but just wish something would damn well happen?
My books aim to fill that gap.
