5.0 out of 5 stars Take a break September 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Mercy Watts short packed more suspense, twist, and turns into its 29 pages than a 329 page novel. Really quickly we find that Mercy is a believable kind of protagonist...smart with some dumb moves, attractive without really knowing it, and able to leap tall buildings with a single bound. Wait, that last part is Superman. Spend half an hour with Mercy and you wind up looking for more of Hartoin's shorts. I did~!~.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked from the start! July 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the free page on line and was hooked. Mercy is a winner with her down to earth style and Marilyn Monroe looks. She's great at mulit tasking jobs and men. Can't wait to see what she gets herself into next helping out her PI father. Did not want the story to end. Laughed out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, entertaining read July 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A great mystery with great characters. The main character, Mercy Watts, will win your heart from page one. She has no problem filling in for her dad as a spy for one of his cases or for getting in trouble because of her task.

The book is short, but packs a great story into the few pages. I enjoyed the book and the characters. If you are looking for a good mystery with a new "twist," check out this book. Enjoy!!

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story August 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this story and was engaged in it, but I could tell it was the first in a series, because it kind of left me hanging. Plus, Mercy mentions repeatedly that she looks like Marilyn Monroe, but it really didn't seem to play into the plot line, etc. I don't think I'm going to bother to buy any of the series, it just wasn't as grabbing for me as some of the other free first-in-a-series books I have read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on Mercy! March 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had no idea what to expect by looking at the cover of this book. As soon as I read the excerpt I knew I wanted the whole short novel. I was hooked! Just as soon as I finished this one, I went and read the other four books that follow Mercy's mystery solving. I do suggest if you want to continue with Mercy's stories, that you read them in order including the short novels: Coke With A Twist (short) Touch & Go (short) A Good Man Gone (novel) Diver Down (novel) Nowhere Fast (short). They will make more sense and follow sequence of the characters.

I loved the mystery and suspense, but most of all I loved the humor in which all of Hartoin's books are written. I had a hard time imagining Mercy with Marilyn Monroe's face throughout all the books. Couldn't think of a ditzy blonde as a nurse and a private investigator, but I guess that is what makes the books so interesting...to expect the unexpected.

I believe I finished all the books in about four days. These books are those that bother and irritate if you have to quit to do something else and make you stay up into the wee hours reading them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Short March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is really too short to make any judgments. It ends very abruptly, I guess it's a good introduction to Mercy Watts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read!!! January 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a good quick read and you like private detective stories, then this is a novelette for you. Coke with a Twist is a page turner that has the twists and turns of a roller coaster. The characters are well written and their (and Mercy's) flaws add depth to the story.

Hartoin makes the Mercy Watts stories a fun read. I highly recommend this and the other books in the series!!
