A Merciful Death (Mercy Kilpatrick #1) Reviews
3-3.5 it was t terrible, so what was missing?? More to come...
This is my first book by this author. This is the1st book in the Mercy Kilpatrick Series and the first that I have read by this author, Kendra Elliot.
The plot dragged on a bit too much for me.....I felt bogged down with all this information about the "preppers".........hell, these are pretty weird characters........and the build up was so slow...slow. There was so much angst and secrets re: the small town people and Mercy's family.
Whilst I found Mercy Kilpatrick a difficult character to engage w ...more
I like this author; and this was a good beginning to the series. I had put off reading it for the longest because I wasn’t sure about the prepper storyline. The twist I was expecting throughout the book didn’t happen until near the end; and didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. I did get a little pissy when the strong female FBI agent blithely revealed a serious 15 year old secret to a virtual stranger just because she was attracted to him and he was nice. Seriously?
The book was a soli ...more
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.
Eagle's Nest, Oregon contains a large community of preppers - people who stock up on food, water, wood, medical supplies, equipment, guns, and so on. They plan to to be ready for a catastrophe, which they call 'the end of the world as we know it.' As the book opens someone has killed two preppers and stolen their weapons.
Sheriff Truman Daly, the nephew of a prepper victim, is determined to find his uncle's killer and calls in the FBI. The Portland office s ...more
I enjoyed this book. It was a great story, and I liked the characters. Was pretty predictable, but still good.
A community of doomsday preppers, conspiracy theorists, and evangelical patriarchists near Bend, Oregon? Not for me! A mystery/thriller/romantic suspense novel set in such a location? Yes, please!
Mercy is a compelling character and I love her romantic interest, Truman Daly. Though, I would've thought there would've been more killings/attacks in such a community. (Especially, as soon as FBI agents came to town!)
I will definitely read more. I want to see more of Mercy, Truman, and Mercy's family. ...more
