A Merciful Truth (Mercy Kilpatrick #2) Reviews
This is a decent mystery. I hadn’t read the first book in the series, but the author caught me up quickly enough. FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick relocates to Eagle’s Nest, Oregon. Her boyfriend is police chief Truman Daly.
She was raised by a family of survivalists, most of whom shun her for becoming an FBI agent. There is a strong community of folks who do not like the government, including cops. When a series of fires breaks out and three people are dead, Mercy and Truman have to figure out who is ...more
Great characters, it goes from lowest of low of humanity to all the way up. FBI agent Mercy has a steel armor around her, but finally breaking down. If you read many books written by this author, you'll guess the ending.
Plot is about one man trying to build militia group, paranoid, isolated and wary of government. Will keep you you reading.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley, this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review.
I didn't think it was possible, but I find that I may just enjoy this series even more than the Callahan & McLane series, and that is saying something. There is something just so fantastically comforting and soothing about stepping into a world where adults are ADULTING. I know, it is weird right, but nowadays I tend to find myself doing some mental gymnas ...more
A Merciful Truth is the second book in the Mercy Kilpatrick Series by Kendra Elliot. I read the first book, A Merciful Death, so I was very familiar with the heroine and her supporting cast. I would still consider this a standalone because Kendra makes it a point to explain how everyone is connected. I was really impressed with the first book and was not disappointed with this one. Although, I will say that there is one part of the storyline regarding Mercy’s estranged family that I feel may be ...more
A Merciful Truth improves upon its predecessor with an even more interesting mystery and great character development for the main cast.
After taking down a killer targeting preppers in Eagle’s Nest, Oregon, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick relocates to an FBI office closer to her hometown in hopes of reconnecting with her family as well as exploring the possibility of a relationship with Police Chief Truman Daly. After a series of fires causes chaos in town, Mercy is called in when the arsonist escalat ...more
3.5 Better than the first. However, there were still a lot of problems. Questions weren't asked that even a passable cop would. It made Mercy and Truman appear incompetent at times. Ben the cop, I think his name was, walked into danger so easily after cops had been shot the night before. It was so obvious. Are the cops in that town that stupid? Kade thinks there are illegal activities and he goes there alone. Another stupid move. All of these were written to further the plot but come off as amat ...more
Lots of family secrets and drama. The pace dragged a bit about 2/3 of the way in then picked up again.
