A Merciful Death (Mercy Kilpatrick #1) Reviews
TEOTWAWKI - Or Doomsday Preppers! This book takes place in Oregan and concerns all the "Preppers" and the extremes they go to prepare themselves for the end of the world as they know it! Mercy Kilpatrick is an FBI agent and a member of one of the main families in the area - a shunned member that is. Although the preparedness has been instilled in Mercy, she was banished from her family when she was 18 and made her way to Portland to survive on her own and become an FBI agent.

I was worried that A Merciful Death would end up being just like all Kendra Elliot and while it is very similar at the same time it is different.
Mercy isn't the perfect Federal Agent but she works hard to cover up her past. She is strong, fights for the right and believes in those she loves. Kendra Elliot gave readers a person who isn't damaged but struggles between the way she was raised and how she wants to live her life.
Kendra created characters who have flaws, are imperfect but are trying to ...more
I like this author; and this was a good beginning to the series. I had put off reading it for the longest because I wasn’t sure about the prepper storyline. The twist I was expecting throughout the book didn’t happen until near the end; and didn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. I did get a little pissy when the strong female FBI agent blithely revealed a serious 15 year old secret to a virtual stranger just because she was attracted to him and he was nice. Seriously?
The book was a soli ...more
A community of doomsday preppers, conspiracy theorists, and evangelical patriarchists near Bend, Oregon? Not for me! A mystery/thriller/romantic suspense novel set in such a location? Yes, please!
Mercy is a compelling character and I love her romantic interest, Truman Daly. Though, I would've thought there would've been more killings/attacks in such a community. (Especially, as soon as FBI agents came to town!)
I will definitely read more. I want to see more of Mercy, Truman, and Mercy's family. ...more
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

They plan to to be ready for a catastrophe, which they call 'the end of the world as we know it.' As the book opens someone has killed two preppers and stolen their weapons.
Sheriff Truman Daly, the nephew of a prepper victim, is determined to find his uncle's killer and calls in the FBI. The Portland office s ...more
Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.
The Kendra Elliot books I've read have all been suspense with the emphasis on building a realistic romance. "A Merciful Death" is no different. Somehow you just know, from the first pages, that a book is going to be good. This book is good. It's refreshing to have a H/h who don't fall into insta love/lust on first sight. This romance unfolds gradually, and the main characters g ...more
Mercy returns back to her home town as an FBI agent to work on a crime but when she gets there the crime seems to mimic an old crime that happened when she was in her teens. The only problem is Mercy hasn't been back since she left home when she was 18 years old and her siblings have a secret so she will have to confront them. Things start to come together and there are other things start to come out as well will this ruin what Mercy has build? Well you would need to read it to find ou ...more
