J: This book needs to be a 10 star! It is everything I love and more. It starts off with a bang and keeps on shooting; with so much suspense I almost called in sick for work to finish it. The story line is gripping, full of twists and turns, and the excitement has you on the edge of your seat. It is so well written with NO unnecessary "fluff", repetition or narratives. I connected with the characters instantly, the relationship developed logically and there was just the right amount of romance. There was also humor that made me laugh out loud at times. The background to this story sounds so familiar though that I went searching through my library for a prequel which I did not find.

Thicker than water is the ultimate title for this book. This title truely compliments the entire contents of the book. The book its self reveals a true love between mother and daughter and the extent a mother and daughter whom are close will go to for eachother. I would recomend this book to any one. It starts out exciting and the ending is ablolutely wonderful. I never wanted to put it down.

It's been a long time since I have read a book with such unexpected twists! This one is fantastic. Just when you think you have got it figured, WHAM, it side-swipes you with a new development. I highly recommend it!

I read Twilight Phantasies more than 10 years ago and at the time it was the best book I had ever read by a wonderful 'new' author. I've read a few of Maggie Shayne's book over the years, so when I saw Thicker Than Water in the grocery store 2 weeks ago, I had to get it! What an great investment that was!!! I finished it within a day and reaffirmed that Maggie Shayne is my absolute favorite author. I can't wait for the next one!!!

This really was a great book. I've only read one other book by her ('The Gingerbread Man' but picked this one up and read it in a day. The characters were very real and came alive, and the action was mixed perfect with the romance. Loved it.

Seventeen year old runaway Julie believes that her mentor, cult prophet Mordecai Young is insane and dangerous. She worries that he will choose martyrdom for him and his followers in their upcoming confrontation with the law. Julie fears for his infant daughter and the mother of the child Lizzie. The assault occurs, but Julie rescues the child. Lizzie and Mordecai apparently died in the fiery inferno. Sixteen years later, Julie is a successful Syracuse news broadcaster though raising Dawn on her own. Harry Blackwood, brother to a state senator, has blackmailed Julie threatening Dawn with information he obtained on their days in the cult. Julie confronts Harry, but finds him dead. Julie knows that the killer has the damaging information that Harry used on her. Though she feels he is an uncouth boar, Julie turns to her co-anchor Sean MacKenzie who observed her pull a crime scene stunt and a break and entering so he helps her while they fall in love. Though there has been a bundle of news romance tales especially in the movies, readers will appreciate THICKER THAN WATER. The story line is fast-paced as the seemingly prim and proper Julie tampers with a crime scene and breaks the law in an attempt to protect Dawn. Sean is an intriguing hero who cannot believe what Julie has been doing since the discovery of a dead Harry. Though the final twist or two seem odd, fans of exhilarating romantic suspense thrillers will want to read Maggie Shayne¿s fine tale. Harriet Klausner

Read the intro of the book and bought it thinking it was a Rachel DeLuca book, instead its a re-release of a book I already have and have read
