    With this being number five in the Mercy Kilpatrick series, it s beginning to feel like reuniting with old friends I consistently like this series and the characters I will say, I m a mystery, not a romance oriented gal, so sometimes the romance portion comes on a little strong for my taste But it is refreshing to have a female main character whose personal life is not in pieces This time the story involves the found skeletal remains of someone involved in a bank heist that occurred 30 years With this being number five in the Mercy Kilpatrick series, it s beginning to feel like reuniting with old friends I consistently like this series and the characters I will say, I m a mystery, not a romance oriented gal, so sometimes the romance portion comes on a little strong for my taste But it is refreshing to have a female main character whose personal life is not in pieces This time the story involves the found skeletal remains of someone involved in a bank heist that occurred 30 years earlier A parallel storyline involves two women being harassed by an unknown vandal Mercy is investigating the first Truman the second Both both issues are being tracked by an internet tabloid reporter The pace here is fast and the plot is suspenseful I had my suspicions and it was fun to see if they were right A great ending Keep it up Ms Elliot I m already anxiously awaiting book six.My thanks to netgalley and Montclair Romance for an advance copy of this book

    Reading A Merciful Fate is like coming home and slipping into my jimmy jams, robe and slippers, turning on the fire and gathering up the dog, throw and glass of wine This is absolutely not to imply the books in this, series, including A Merciful Fate are cozies Au contraire, mes amies This series has kept me on the edge of my couch and turning pages as quickly as possible I still have not totally recovered from the last bookA Merciful Silence Of course these books can be read alone, Elli Reading A Merciful Fate is like coming home and slipping into my jimmy jams, robe and slippers, turning on the fire and gathering up the dog, throw and glass of wine This is absolutely not to imply the books in this, series, including A Merciful Fate are cozies Au contraire, mes amies This series has kept me on the edge of my couch and turning pages as quickly as possible I still have not totally recovered from the last bookA Merciful Silence Of course these books can be read alone, Elliot does a good job of catching you up on the players.I might not have read of any cop FBI with a background as unusual as Mercy Kilpartrick s, outside of the realm of fantasy Mercy is a secret prepper actually the smartest kind to be She was raised by prepper survivalist parents until she broke away I m gonna quote myself, You can take the girl out of the family circle but you can t take the prepper out of the girl So she still embraces parts of the philosophy The always be prepared part, just to an unusual degree She is an FBI agent in love with and engaged to the local police chief, Truman Daly When Mercy finds herself proposing a wedding trip to Italy its wonderful to see that Mercy is no longer a half bubble off plumb, but just a smidgen Can y all tell I m fascinated by Mercy Okay now back to our regularly scheduled programming Truman s ward, Ollie, finds a skeletonized body in the woods The body turns out to be a member of the Gamble Helmet bank robbery gang which ended in one death, one arrest, four escapes and the money disappearing The Gamble Helmet crime became second only to the D.B.Cooper hijacking in myth and mystery in the Northwest.Thirty years is a long time for people to re invent themselves so Mercy finds herself eyeing long time friends in a different way She is just not eying the right people.Meanwhile, back in Eagle s Nest, Truman is dealing with two, seemingly unconnected spates of vandalism I would have to say the complex plot, and the fascinating characters are evenly matched in A Merciful Fate It was especially lovely to see so much of sister Rose, her FBI partner Eddie Peterson and young hero Ollie I know also that this sounded like a review of Mercy But why not, there seems to be a competition between authors to make their cop FBI agents as damaged as possible Mercy fits into that category, but I think in just about the most interesting way.Elliot could have done a bit better research about retired FBI agents They are fully able to carry concealed weapons No concealed weapons permit needed.I still admire the way Elliot writes in such a respectful way about the prepper lifestyle She makes it understandable, not a joke.Elliot also has a fine way with her occasional metaphors, but an experienced reporter would dip him in batter, deep fry him, and then eat him for dinner Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review

    A Merciful Fate was another fantastic addition to the Mercy Kilpatrick series with an intriguing case for Mercy that I thoroughly enjoyed.For FBI agent and survivalist Mercy Kilpatrick, her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her sanctuary But when a skeleton is found in those same woods, and that skeleton provides the first lead in thirty years from an unsolved ard car robbery, Mercy knows those weekends away are on hold while she s looking at the biggest case of her career As Mercy begin A Merciful Fate was another fantastic addition to the Mercy Kilpatrick series with an intriguing case for Mercy that I thoroughly enjoyed.For FBI agent and survivalist Mercy Kilpatrick, her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her sanctuary But when a skeleton is found in those same woods, and that skeleton provides the first lead in thirty years from an unsolved ard car robbery, Mercy knows those weekends away are on hold while she s looking at the biggest case of her career As Mercy begins her investigation, it becomes clear that someone in Eagle s Nest is not who they claim to be After someone starts coming after those involved in the investigation, Mercy knows she needs to catch the perpetrators before someone is killed.The robbery investigation was incredibly interesting and one of my favorite cases that Mercy has worked on in this series With the robbery taking place thirty years ago, Mercy had to come at this case from a different angle as there was very little new information outside of the discovery of the skeleton I enjoyed watching her change her investigative style to suit the case as it definitely reinforced how great she is at her job While Mercy is dealing with the robbery, Truman is dealing with multiple vandalism incidents involving two women in town As the book goes on, there are ultimately connections between the two cases and I enjoyed getting to see Mercy and Truman work together I have to admit I was surprised by who ended up being involved in the robbery, but I liked how the author built up to the reveal.Mercy continues to grow in this book and I liked how she s becomeopen and accepting of having others in her life Her relationship with Truman continues to be fantastic and I love how far the pair have come from their first meeting I was very happy to seeof Ollie in this book as I really enjoyed his character in the last book It s interesting watching Ollie adjust to his new life and I love how much he s come to consider Truman and Mercy his family.Overall A Merciful Fate was just as amazing as the rest of the series and I m looking forward to the release of the next book later this year I highly recommend this series if you re looking for some great romantic suspenseI received an advance copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
