A Merciful Silence (Mercy Kilpatrick, #4)

It turns out that by the time we meet Mercy and Truman in this book, it has only been six months since Mercy visited her hometown on a job. A lot has happened in that time, and each episode is fraught with tension, intrigue and a lot of gunfire. The story begins with skeletal remains being found and their identity being investigated. On the outskirts of the town, Truman starts a war he doesn’t know could exist. There is more soul-searching in this book than in the previous ones and Mercy is closer to being comfortable in her relationship. This of course is due to very trying circumstances.

There is a lot of action involved, some nail-biting moments and very little evidence to point us in the right direction till the very last quarter of the book. If you are a fan of the romantic thriller genre, and/or have read this author before, I suggest you give this series a try because it has a very different support cast ( in terms of the people of the town and those who pop into the story) than most other books set in such circumstances. This book focuses more on a group of sovereign citizens within the USA.

I had this book pending on NetGalley while I caught it available with audio on Kindle Unlimited so I listed to ninety percent of it on audio and till I could wait no longer and finished it by reading it.

I replaced the book on my KU queue with


The Council of Twelve The Summer Children (The Collector, #3) Toward the Sea of Freedom (The Sea of Freedom Trilogy #1) The Mysterious Island   Sea of Memories  Astrophysics for People in a Hurry Storm Glass (Harbinger #1) In Farleigh Field A Steep Price (Tracy Crosswhite, #6)

What do you think of my collection? Any suggestions on which I should prioritize in between my ARC commitments?
