A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot


A pair of ritual murders could expose Mercy Kilpatrick to something terrifying: her own past…

Raised off the grid by survivalists, Mercy Kilpatrick believed in no greater safeguard than the backwoods of Oregon. Unforgiven by her father for abandoning the fold for the FBI, Mercy still holds to her past convictions. They’re in her blood. They’re her secrets—as guarded as her private survival retreat hidden away in the foothills.

In a cabin near her hideaway, Mercy encounters a young girl whose grandmother is dying from multiple knife wounds. Hundreds of miles away, a body is discovered slashed to death in a similar way. The victims—a city judge and an old woman living in the woods—couldn’t be more different. With the help of police chief Truman Daly, Mercy must find the killer before the body count rises. Mercy knows that the past has an edge on her. So does her family. How can she keep her secrets now… when they’re the only things that can save her?

This is more about the other characters in the town where Mercy lives. I think that this was far more about Mercy's ability to roll with the punches and adapt. We've seen her in her "preparing" ways and this time around, we get to see how she handles being on the outside of the investigation – more part of the investigation than the investigator.

The characters in this story were less complex in a way, but their dynamic was more complex. It seemed that this was more about family dynamic than anything. I enjoyed watching it unfold.

This is a more in-depth story about her fellow citizens. There are secrets around every corner and the mystery within the story, while somewhat predictable, is a fun one to think about.

Overall, this was not as great as the previous book, but I am very intrigued to know where this couple will take the next story.
