A Merciful Fate(Mercy Kilpatrick #5)
By: Kendra Elliot
Release Date: January 15th, 2019
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Series: Mercy Kilpatrick

Book number five is here and I’m so glad to have read it and be able to tell everyone about it. Again we walk the line of talking about how amazing a story is without offering spoilers but, bear with me, I am going to try and offer enough of a review without telling you major plot points.

In this book skeletal remains are found and are believed to be linked to an armed robbery over thirty years ago. Apparently, someone in the group of criminals didn’t make it out alive. Now, in an effort to identify the dead and find the killer decades old wounds are being opened and everyone is on edge.

The bones aren’t the only issue in Eagle’s Nest as women are being harassed by a vandal and both Mercy and Truman are working to solve the cases before more violence can occur. Unfortunately they aren’t fast enough and some do pay a high price for what is going on in the town.

I have to say that I disagree with other reviewers on the internet when they say you can read these stories alone. Of course you can, technically, but you would miss out on a lot of the ingrained tension and character connectivity if you were to skip. So, simply put, read the series and thank me later.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
