Interview & #Giveaway: Thicker Than Blood by Anne Marie Citro

How can you feel safest
with the person who has hurt you the most? 


1. Thicker Than Blood is the 3rd book in the Sistas series. How are all the books in the series connected?

The series Sistas is a about a group of six girlfriends that work together in a facility for people with special needs. Each book is an independent stand-alone novel. The characters will appear in each other stories to lend support and encouragement. I often hear woman say they get along with men better then woman. In this series, the woman gather their strength and advocate for their female friends. The woman also meet to share a cocktail and destress every Friday. The friendships are long lasting as you get a glimpse of their futures through the epilogue.

2. What’s your inspiration for Thicker Than Blood?

My inspiration came from a couple of different sources. First was I was watching the news and saw a woman that had been trapped in her car for three hours while a fireman stayed with her and saved her life. He talked to her for hours. The other was a news story I heard twenty years ago about a fireman that went to a school shooting at a university. Only to find that his own daughter was one of the victims. I couldn’t fathom how paralyzing the fear of trying to save someone you love.

3. Tell us about Caden Ross. How did being a paramedic shape his character and the man we meet in the story?

Caden has great compassion but he also makes mistakes. He is the first one to apologize if he is proven wrong. Caden discovered his passion for becoming a first responder when he witnessed a paramedic save his childhood friend. After witnessing the heroics of the first responder he wanted to the opportunity to save lives and to make a difference in the world. Caden gave up an opportunity to become a famous football player after refusing the draft. He played football simply for a scholarship to pay for his education. Caden wants to believe in those he loves even if they disappoint him.

4. What about Dakota Martineau? What kind of person is she? How did being a

twin shape her into the woman we meet in the book?

Dakota is a very kind loving woman who beats to a different drum. Nothing is more important to her then her family and friends. Dakota believes her twin is truly her other half not just in creation but also in life. There is nothing she wouldn’t do for her. When faced with a heinous act of cruelty she chooses to believe in those she loves. She is loyal to fault and devastated when she betrayed. She is so thankful for the family of her heart; her friends. The girls that carry her during the hard times.

5. What was their first meeting like, two years after they've parted?

It was totally bittersweet. If you love someone once I think you always love them in some capacity and that love can be very powerful. Dakota is terrified but also knows how very good Caden is his job and is thankful he is there. Caden can’t believe the woman in dire straits is the woman he thought he would spend his life with. Both have been hurt and need answers but right now keeping Dakota alive is the objective. If you were meant to love someone that love will always prevails if it is honest and pure.

6. What’s up next for you?

Thank you for asking. I have just resigned from years of working in a school dedicated to teenagers that have multiple disabilities. Resigning was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. So much of my identity was tied into my job. Those kids are the neatest people in the world and I miss them already. But it is time for me to write a new chapter for my life. I also am obsessed with writing and I think I can still have my hand in special needs kids by including the in my stories. They taught me every day about courage and love and strength. Now it is my job to educate people about the incredible beauty of these kids.

Thicker Than Blood
THICKER THAN BLOOD
Anne Marie Citro
Series: Sistas Book 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance
Publication Date: May 5, 2017
Every paramedic’s worst nightmare is to arrive at the scene of a horrific accident and find out that the victim is someone they love. Or, in Caden Ross’s case, the woman he used to love. It took two years to finally get over Dakota and move on with his life, or so Caden believed, until he has to face the thought of a world without her. Nothing could have prepared the handsome, headstrong off-duty paramedic for the emotional upheaval of keeping the woman he once thought would be his forever alive.
Dakota Martineau appeared to have the world in the palm of her hand. She is beautiful, kind, has an adoring family, including her best friend and identical twin sister. She has a passion for incorporating her love of life, family, and her cultural background into her dream job with special needs kids. Then, in a life-altering crash, she discovers just how fragile life is. Thankful to be surrounded by an incredible group of friends who will help heal, not just her body, but also her soul, she knows she should be happy she is alive and on the mend, but Dakota is still tormented by the loss of her one true love.
How can you feel safe with the one person who hurt you the most? What road will Caden and Dakota take when they discover fate wreaked havoc on everything they thought was true?
I adore all of Citro's books.
This book keeps you reading. It's a journey that takes you through overcoming tragedy, overcoming lots and lots of heartbreak from family and lovers, and it teaches you the power of friendship and trusting with your heart.
- Kristin Campbell, Goodreads Reviewer
