Soon to be a TV series by Warner Brothers Television and Ellen Degeneres's A Very Good Production. FBI special agent Mercy Kilpatrick has been waiting her whole life for disaster to strike. A prepper since childhood, Mercy grew up living off the land--and off the grid--in rural Eagle's Nest, Oregon. Until a shocking tragedy tore her family apart and forced her to leave home. Now a predator known as the cave man is targeting the survivalists in her hometown, murdering them in their homes, stealing huge numbers of weapons, and creating federal suspicion of a possible domestic terrorism event. But the crime scene details are eerily familiar to an unsolved mystery from Mercy's past. Sent by the FBI to assist local law enforcement, Mercy returns to Eagle's Nest to face the family who shunned her while maintaining the facade of a law-abiding citizen. There, she meets police chief Truman Daly, whose uncle was the cave man's latest victim. He sees the survivalist side of her that she desperately tries to hide, but if she lets him get close enough to learn her secret, she might not survive the fallout...… (lisätietoja)

Reading a book from KU is always a risk. I've found some gems like Stillhouse Lake series by Rachel Caine and the Sydney Rose Parnell series by Barbara Nickless but not too often. This one wasn't technically bad but just really boring. I wasn't interested in any of the characters or the mystery. I think I kept reading to see if it gets better since I am always on the lookout for a good series. But it didn't. I skimmed through the last third to just finish it. The problem could have been that I've had a good reading streak lately and this book fell far short of anything I've read in the last month. So this author isn't for me. ( )

I don't understand how this book was rated so high. Ugh was how I felt after reading it. Two examples below but most of the story went this way.

Mercy, the lead character, acted more like a batty housewife than an FBI agent with 6 years of experience, who faced up to her father, left her home at 18 and paid her way through college. She kept her secret for 15 years but blabbed all of it after knowing a guy for a week.

Truman, the town Sheriff, spent all of his time chasing the first woman that comes to town, ignores the law and choses the wrong path, though Mercy and her siblings actions 15 years earlier led to his uncle's death.

Lastly, the author seemed to do zero research on preppers, though it was a central theme through out the book. ( )

This is the first in a new series by Kendra Elliot and it has me hooked. Mercy Kilpatrick is a woman with many secrets. That is hard for someone who is also an FBI agent. When her most recent case sends her back to her hometown of Eagle's Nest, Oregon, some of her secrets come out. Fifteen years earlier she left home and was shunned by her family, she has not spoken to any of them since. This town has more than its share of "preppers". There are two main groups one headed up by Mercy's father and the second by her father's enemy. When several older preppers are killed and their weapons stolen, the FBI is worried about Domestic Terrorism. With the help of police chief, Truman Daley, Mercy and her partner begin the investigation. When things remind Mercy of earlier murders (15 years ago) she reopens the investigation in those cases. What is Mercy's secret? How will all this affect her job with the FBI and her family relationships?" I could not put this book down. I read long into the night to find out what was going to happen. The plot pulled me along quite quickly. I liked learning more about Preppers. I always thought they were a bunch of crazy, hermit types but these characters were not. I was not sure about the character of Mercy at the beginning of the book, but really liked her by the end. Finding out about her past slowly as the book unfolds makes her very real to the reader. The secondary characters (her family, her partner) are all very likable (except her father) and I hope to see more of them in other books in this series. I will say that I had figured out who the murderer was much earlier than the book revealed it, but it did not diminish my enjoyment of the story at all. A great read for lovers of suspense, mysteries and FBI type stories. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley. ( )

Mercy Kilpatrick returns home after fifteen years, not to reconnect with her family but as an FBI agent investigating several murders of men who had loads of guns stolen. Also worth mentioning, these men where preppers. I can't imagine prepping for the end of the world. Mercy was not a stranger to this way of thinking, she grew up in a family where it was a way of life. Mercy was also keeping a secret and it was part of the reason why she left her family and never returned. Mercy believes the recent murders are related to ones that occurred before she left home. The book definitely moves fast once one of Mercy's family member goes missing. I had some suspicions on who was behind everything, it wasn't too hard to figure out. The book was still an awesome read.

The book is more mystery than romance. There's just a touch of romance brewing between Mercy and local police chief Truman Daly. I definitely recommend this book and can't wait to read the next Mercy Kilpatrick book!!

Thanks to NetGalley, Montlake Romance and the author, Kendra Ell, for a free electronic ARC of this novel. ( )
