*Thank you to the publisher for the advanced copy I received via NetGalley. I have voluntarily read and reviewed this book and I am providing my honest review.
The only part that was disappointing for me was the end results of the situation with Pete Hodges and the ATF, et. al. It was too pat, felt too neat, and didn't fit in with how Ms. Elliott drew Pete. It almost felt as if it just need to be over so Ms. Elliott could focus on what was happening next with Mercy.
Another conclusion, based on Pete's previous behavior, would have felt moreb realistic and provided a more satisfying read.
Still, it was good to see Truman and Mercy together, finally.
The pace and suspense were great in this book. I would call it more thriller or suspense than mystery unlike some of her previous books. However, this one really did make you wonder if Mercy would get out of this intact.
One thing kind of bugged me though. Why would they let Mercy go undercover and especially with such a volatile case when she’d been covered prominently in the news in the recent past? Seems to me this would make her extremely vulnerable especially given the paranoid personalities she could encounter on this case. That’s really my only complaint with the story.
Nonetheless, good read and a good ending to a well done series. Four stars.
This story had so many twists and turns that it seemed like a one-two punch every chapter. It's amazing how invested I became with every character in the story, especially Eden, and I almost feel bereft because the book is done.
If you're looking for books with believable characters, engrossing situations, heart-stopping suspense, then any book by Kendra Elliot is going to fill that requirement. But if you read anything at all by this author, you definitely need to read the Mercy Kilpatrick books!

FBI Agent Mercy Kilpatrick is recruited to join ATF agent Chad Finn, already working undercover in an anti government, arms selling militia group called America’s Preserve. She is to pose as his girlfriend and between them find out what the group have planned with a cache of stolen weapons. Mercy has two days to learn the ATF created history for Jessica Polk, and the very dangerous role she is about to play in an environment where women are decidedly inferior to the men.
In Mercy’s favour was the fact she’d grown up with survivalist prepper parents and knew the likely mindset of the group. The condition Mercy was really struggling with was the no contact rule. She couldn’t tell anyone, even police chief Truman Daly, the man she was about to marry, where she was going. There were no mobile phones allowed in the compound and she had no backup, only herself to rely on.
Meanwhile Truman was kept busy as first one body, then another is discovered dumped, both bearing similar gunshot injuries, indicating executions, which also raises the question of a serial killer. Despite all this going on his thoughts were never far away from Mercy, desperate for her assignment to be over. When a third body is found it changes the whole dynamic of both cases.
As with all these stories, the romance element takes a backseat to the action, investigation and Mercy’s assignment. There seems to be an alarming trend for anti government militia/patriot groups in America, breeding racism and hate, making this story and the associated dangers all the more realistic. It’s fast paced, shocking and intense, with an interesting, engaging cast of main characters. The well devised storyline flows well, from Mercy’s and Truman’s perspectives, with some surprising twists in the plot.
Sadly, A Merciful Promise is the last in the Mercy Kilpatrick series, but it’s ended on a high with everything tied up nicely, and it’s very good to know the characters may be popping up in future books. I’ve enjoyed the series very much.
All the ends were satisfactorily tied up for the main characters and their family. A fitting end to the series.
I hope that I will read more about these characters.
