I don't really like Romantic Suspense. I struggle with it. It's either too dark or too derivative. And this book is dark. It's too dark. Too dark for me.
And I'm not really sure why I like it but I do. I guess it's ...more
This particular story features an FBI agent and her boyfriend who is the chief of police for a small town. The premise of the story was very intense and a bit creepy on its own. And then when bodies started showing up, the ...more

It was the perfect blend of mystery, suspense and romance. I love Mercy & Truman, I love how their minds work, I love the aspect of their law enforcement expertise. I don’t do spoilers but I will say at parts of this story my heart was breaking for Mercy.
I was literally engrossed in this story, it had so many twists and turns. I couldn’t put it down. This author literally grabs you and sucks you in. It’s well ...more

I highly recommend all the books in this series but this book could be read as a stand-alone. Can't wait to read the next one.

But now she has Truman. I. Love. This. Guy. I have been crushing on this couple since they first got together. Their relationship gets better and better and their trust and support are superb. And when Truman was ...more
I like the primary character of FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick. Her unique background of being born within a prepper community of Oregon gives this series a fresh and unique perspective. Her boyfriend, Truman Daly is a great beta hero. The main plot of this book is really interesting and I enjoyed the subplot as well. The supporting cast is well developed. This was a difficult book to put ...more
Number Four in the Mercy Kilpatrick series and I hope there will be many, many more. If you are contemplating this as your first book in the series, please reconsider and start at the beginning. Mercy grows with each book and it is wonderful when the author takes us with her on this journey. I feel sorry for the State of Oregon. It seems that a lot of their citizens are missing ...more
Review copy was received from NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I was happy to continue the Mercy Kilpatrick series. This feels more crime/ mystery suspense than a romance. There is kissing but the sex is mostly off page. I've enjoyed the world-building of this small town in a rural mountain area with many survivalists. The preppers are fascinating to me and cool; I love DYI and self-sufficient ...more
Kendra Elliot creates an amazing world would Mercy tries to do what she feels is right even though the way she was raised tells her otherwise. The characters stay true to who they are from the beginning of the series which will keep readers wanting more as they series continues. Readers will struggle along with Mercy as she fights to keep herself ...more

I was on the fence with Britta most of the book. Sure living through something like that would damage a person, but she was so leery of all ...more

The author did a great job of keeping me guessing. Though the bad guy(s) wasn’t my prime suspect, he was one of my other options. I think I was over thinking looking for twist and that’s why he wasn’t my prime suspect.
Still, this book had many feels. I’m looking forward to the next book.
I love Truman and I love Ollie. I admire Mercy.
