Great addition to the series!,
This review is from: Merciless: A Mystery (Kindle Edition)
I have to say this is one of the harder reviews I have had to write, because Lori has truly outdone herself with this one!! I have to fight myself from going supper fan girl on this one! This series gets better and better with each book!! Like with the others this one got a hand hold on me, and I couldn't put it down till I was finished with it. I just really really LOVE Mercy!!!
So far the FBI hasn't lived up to the unrealistic expectations brought on by watching The X Files, and the endless lectures are getting old. Mercy may regret complaining about that though with her first case. Women are being killed around the reservation and town, and they are looking to be connected. When she tries convincing the higher ups in her office about her gut feelings in this case she ends up with grunt, and kinda puts herself at odds with fellow agent Shay Turnbull.
While her work life is kinda crazy things at home are actually going great for her. Living with her boyfriend, Sheriff Mason Dawson is going great. They have found a way to coexist, by keeping their home and work lives separate. A wrinkle does get thrown at them when Mason's eleven year old son, Lex comes to live with them. You get to see a deeper yet softer side of Mercy as she truly adjusts to her new life, but you can guarantee she still has all her rough edges we love when those she loves are threatened.
I can't say enough how much I enjoyed this book in the Mercy series!! I find with this one we get to know Mercy on a much deeper level as she opens up more, and fights her ingrained training that would normally have her closing herself off. The relationship with Mason is truly steamy and downright truly romantic, because he understands that she isn't your typical woman. She is more of a buy me bullets instead of flowers kinda gal. Plus the relationship between Mercy and Lex is just great!! I highly recommend this book and series, and truly hope that we get to see more and more of Mercy!!
