BLOG TOUR: A Merciful Fate (Excerpt, Review + Giveaway)

In the next book in the Wall Street Journal bestselling Mercy Kilpatrick series, there are no such things as little secrets…

Raised by preppers, survivalist and FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick has a deep-rooted need for a safe place. Her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her secret. But when skeletal remains are unearthed—those of a murdered man linked to a notorious heist—Mercy realizes she isn’t the only one with something to hide.

Thirty years ago, an armored-car robbery turned deadly. The mastermind was captured. Four conspirators vanished with a fortune. One of them, it appears, never made it out of the woods alive. For Mercy and her fiancĂ©, Police Chief Truman Daly, their investigation opens old wounds in Eagle’s Nest that cut deeper than they imagined. Especially when a reckless tabloid reporter draws fresh blood. It’s clear to Mercy that somebody in this close-knit community is not who they seem to be.

Some are still shattered by the heist. Some still have reason to be afraid. But which one will kill again and again to hide three decades of secrets? To land this case, it’s up to Mercy to unmask a familiar stranger before someone else dies.

Mercy Kilpatrick is back in action! The fifth novel of the series, A Merciful Fate, takes a new turn as a 30-year-old unsolved bank robbery is once again under investigation. Kendra Elliot shakes up the small town of Eagles Nest with surprises ranging from good to shocking.

Two cases of vandalism and a skeleton discovered in an abandoned cabin set up the mysteries of this story. Throughout the story I had to reset what I assumed with each new fact presented. Not knowing whether the cases were related, and if they were, how, was what kept me reading long into the night. It was like the answers were within my grasp, but then something either diverted my attention or caused me to second-guess myself. I loved it!

After five novels in this series, Mercy has finally made a place for herself in the place she grew up. Her relationship with her father is still rocky, but there's still time for mending. A wedding is in the horizon and Mercy and Truman are stronger than ever. I'm enjoying learning about the new addition to the cast, Ollie. His character has been like a breath of fresh air and I loved that he's played an essential role in both A Merciful Silence and A Merciful Fate after coming seemingly out of nowhere.

Next in the series is A Merciful Promise. I can't wait to see what's next for the residents of Eagle's Nest. The series up to this point has been intriguing and the perfect balance of suspense and romance.

  1. New Cure for herpes Virus
    I was once a victim of Herpes virus miraculously I was cured. I am from Ecuador, before I asked my girlfriend out she already told me she was battling with herpes virus. So the decision to get involved with her was mine. But nevertheless, I can't let the virus decide our future. So I was determined to get rid of the virus. I suffered from this deadly virus for over 8 months. The lesions were on my lips and later extended to my back. I tried all sorts of medication but to no avail. I decided to try out herbal home remedies. Then I went online and I was on one herbal blog, I came across lots of different patients comments who were cured from several diseases by Dr. Ahmed Usman I had to write the doctor I contacted the doctor through his email and he assured me that he will cure me and my girl friend together and we will be healthy again. He prepared some traditional medication for Herpes Virus and sent them to me, I used all the medication he sent, just as he instructed though while I was like on the second bottle I was not experiencing any symptom as the lesion on my back and lips dried up. I continued the dosage and kept in touch with the doctor. After about one week I consumed the whole bottles. I and my girl friend went for test and to our greatest surprise the result was negative. We were saved the very moment we thought all hope was lost. You too can be healthy again, you should talk to Dr. Ahmed through his direct email address:  He has herbal medicine for any type of disease; diabetes, Fibroid, Cancers, HIV.
