Stars: 5 out of 5
Once again Kendra Elliot takes readers on a emotionally charge Mystery that will keep readers engaged from first to last page.
A Merciful Truth is the second book in a series and while it is only book 2 a lot of things happened in book 1 that some readers might be lost but Kendra tries hard to update readers throughout the book.
Mercy has a hard background that causes her not to trust as well as fear not being able to take care of herself. Lincoln has fallen head over heels with Mercy but he is waiting for her to take the lead in fear she might bolt if he pushes to hard. Backstories are filled in but is you pay attention most readers will pick up on who everyone is.
I enjoyed the authors known when it came to preppers. The author gives reader into the insight of how some of the government hate groups start and are controlled. The fear of everything they worked hard for being taken away. The groups start to find ways of coming together but one twisted voice can take them from peaceful to militia. As you read you an see the authors knowledge in this area bringing the story to life.
Each character in the book has a purpose of driving the story forward. Kendra Elliott is a master at bring emotions to everyone who readers her books.
Kendra Elliot books are hard to put down and readers will finish it in a day.
Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for an advance Copy.
Raised by a family of survivalists, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick can take on any challenge—even the hostile reception to her homecoming. But she’s not the only one causing chaos in the rural community of Eagle’s Nest, Oregon. At first believed to be teenage pranks, a series of fires takes a deadly turn with the murder of two sheriff’s deputies. Now, along with Police Chief Truman Daly, Mercy is on the hunt for an arsonist turned killer.
Still shunned by her family and members of the community, Mercy must keep her ear close to the ground to pick up any leads. And it’s not long before she hears rumors of the area’s growing antigovernment militia movement. If the arsonist is among their ranks, Mercy is determined to smoke the culprit out. But when her investigation uncovers a shocking secret, will this hunt for a madman turn into her own trial by fire?
