A Merciful Death Review


Released: 17 January 2017

A Merciful Death is the first book in the Mercy Kilpatrick series. I really enjoyed the Bone Secrets series so I was looking forward to this book.

It wasn’t quite what I expected. The romance aspect was very minimal so I’m not sure I would call this a romantic suspense book but more of a mystery. I really enjoyed the prepper backdrop for this book. It was very interesting and gave me a lot of insight into the lifestyle.

Mercy was a character that was a bit hard to connect to. Although I liked her she didn’t let anyone in and therefore it was difficult to get to know her as a reader. She kept a lot of secrets and because her background was involved in the mystery the details were slow to be revealed. Mercy was a very closed off character even when she was with her estranged siblings and never really opened up throughout the book. Truman on the other hand was a character that I really enjoyed. His background was laid out and the reader knew exactly where he was coming from and I enjoyed seeing his respect and feeling for Mercy grow.

Their were aspects of the suspense story that I really enjoyed. While I had a good guess of who the villain was there were plenty of other suspects and I was kept guessing until the end. However, the investigation portion was slow and was almost exclusively interviews. I would have liked more romance from this book and to get to know more about Mercy.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and as long as you aren’t looking for a book with a strong romance aspect then this murder/mystery is worth reading. I personally enjoyed her Bone Secrets Series more but I enjoyed this one enough that I will read the next book in the series. I give this book 3 Charms.

About afgypsysoul

I have always loved to read. My first memory of reading is winning a stuffed animal turtle for reading the most books in my 2nd grade class. I am a retired Air Force Officer who has traveled around the world with my kindle! I love anything with a romance. I'm a big fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy (as long as there's a little bit or romance), romantic suspense, contemporary romance and M/M. I have over 1000 books on my kindle that I haven't read yet and somehow I keep adding more. I never leave home without my kindle and I love reading challenges. I currently live in Phoenix with my husband and two kids. I also have two wonderful dogs a lovable pitbull and a cute dachshund. I'm still hoping my kids will pick up my love for reading!
