A Merciful Truth by Kendra Elliot
I love the Mercy Kilpatrick series, but I don’t feel this is a series where you could read the books out of order and still understand them. While the case is completely different than that in A Merciful Death, the background on Mercy’s family (especially Levi and Rose) will leave you confused in A Merciful Truth if you haven’t read the first book.
That said, I enjoyed A Merciful Death greatly, and is worth reading before A Merciful Truth.
Someone is setting fires in Eagle’s Nest, Oregon. They begin as small nieusance fires, but then become larger and more dangerous. The FBI become involved when, at one of the large barn fires, someone shoots and kills two officers.
I am enjoying the Mercy Kilpatrack series that Kendra Elliot has brought forth. The only disappointment is that the third book isn’t due out until January of 2018. Bummer, right?
Reading about the Kilpatrick family history is enjoyable as well. They are a patriarchal family of survivalists, otherwise known as preppers. They have a lot of turmoil, and amongst certain family members, love. I find dysfunctional families make for entertaining reads for me.
The story in A Merciful Truth ties in very well with A Merciful Death. I still maintain that it would not make a good stand alone read, but between the two, they meld together nicely.
Mercy and Truman’s relationship is still blossoming and reading about them makes my heart happy as well.
