Kendra Elliot’s new series, takes us into the little rural town of Eagle’s Nest, Oregon, where secrets are buried deep, and the residents are perpetual preppers, waiting for a disaster to strike…. living off the grid and off of the land.

Hometown to FBI special agent Mercy Kilpatrick, a series of murders brings her back to the town she had left fifteen years and a to family estranged with divided loyalties. Coming back to her roots is bittersweet but it also awakens a deadly serial killer gone quite throwing Mercy into the crosshairs of danger.

Thrown together with the local police chief Truman Daly to assist in solving the murders, Mercy and Truman drawn into a deadly game of missing weapons and possible terrorist activities. Working side by side, Truman admires the survivalist side of her even as she makes a place in his heart. But Mercy also has secrets buried deep in Eagle’s Nest that could break the fragile bond between her and Truman.

“A Merciful Death” is a brilliantly narrated thriller; Kendra Elliot keeps the plot tight and twisted until the very end. With great attention to the dynamics of the Kilpatrick family, she weaves an intense story of family loyalties, loss and pain, hope and faith and the nuances of a small rural town’s lifestyle and a great insight into the mentality of preppers and survivalists.

A great start to what seems to be another intense and captivating series, can’t wait to see how Kendra Elliot will evolve Mercy Kilpatrick on a personal level as well as professionally. “A Merciful Truth” will follow “A Merciful Death”.

A new author, a new series Sergeant Joey’s Boys, and the first in the series, “Always For You: Jack” is a decent read. Meet Jack McShane, ex-special forces operative and now running a construction business. Being a foster child has given him enough insight to the recognize when a kid is in trouble and his desire to fulfill his foster father’s dream only motivates him to help Ricky.

And then we have Caitlyn Curtis, Ricky’s tutor who becomes Jack’s love interest and more. Kind and passionate, understanding and supportive Caitlyn is a perfect partner for Jack.

The story was good, the characters well developed, the premise a real life issue and the plot interesting but what really did not work for me was what exactly was Alexis Morgan‘s genre here. It wasn’t really a romance because the story was more about Ricky, Jack and foster care. There were pages of dialogues and interaction between Jack and Caitlyn that really did not generate any chemistry. And for a while Ricky was relegated to the background and his story did not seem to progress. I think the bridge between Ricky, Jack and Caitlyn was not developed well and felt the story dragging a bit.

All in all, the book can be read once. There are interesting parts that will hold attention and I think the main highlight is Jack and Ricky.

What an amazing story of pain, loss, courage and an evil that goes beyond monstrous!!!!

A chance request for “Dead Don’t Lie” by L.R. Nicolello via Netgalley, took me on a ride of anguish for the loss of loved ones, courage and grit to overcome a past and channel fears to help victims, and a patient love that gave unconditional support and strength through despair and havoc as a demon wages a war on innocent families.

Detective Evelyn Davis, beats the nightmares and pain of losing her family to a monster fifteen years ago, and becomes a much sought after psychological profiler with the Seattle PD. Her partner Ryan and his family are her adopted family from the time she pairs with him, and she loves them to death and would take a bullet without a second thought.

A murderer is on the rampage killing families with a rage that defies sanity and Evelyn and Ryan are brought into the case as lead detectives to catch the murderer. Special Agent Marcus Moretti comes into the picture, as he wants Evelyn to be a part of his special ops team in the FBI. He falls for Evelyn’s courage and passion for justice and her drive to give the families of tragedies the closure that she never got. The murderer gets too close to her and her family and she realizes that this could be connected with the murder of her family fifteen years ago.

L.R. Nicolello does a fabulous job writing Evelyn as the strong, smart and courageous woman who breathes justice with a passion. Evelyn is one of the most admirable women I’ve come across and she stole my heart. Marcus is an amazingly sensitive agent tuned into Evelyn and her fears. His support and encouragement of Evelyn when she hits rock bottom was so endearing and his protective instincts and fierce love for her makes Marcus one of the most genuine guys I’ve read. 

Even though Marcus and Evelyn get their HEA, but the path to the end was one of an emotional roller coaster ride. I’ve never cried so much reading a section of the story when Evelyn finds herself become the guardian of a child. And the epilogue was one of the sweetest and the best ending to a couple who deserve nothing but happiness. 

This is one of the best romantic suspense thrillers I’ve read in a while and I am in awe of Evelyn and Marcus – a wonderful couple so easy to fall in love with, to cry with and laugh with.
