Publisher's Summary

Raised by a family of survivalists, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick can take on any challenge - even the hostile reception to her homecoming. But she's not the only one causing chaos in the rural community of Eagle's Nest, Oregon. At first believed to be teenage pranks, a series of fires takes a deadly turn with the murder of two sheriff's deputies. Now, along with Police Chief Truman Daly, Mercy is on the hunt for an arsonist turned killer.

Still shunned by her family and members of the community, Mercy must keep her ear close to the ground to pick up any leads. And it's not long before she hears rumors of the area's growing antigovernment militia movement. If the arsonist is among their ranks, Mercy is determined to smoke the culprit out. But when her investigation uncovers a shocking secret, will this hunt for a madman turn into her own trial by fire?

Entertaining

I like the characters and the story. The characters are not particularly complex. However the simplicity makes for an enjoyable, light read that sustained my interest. I'm looking forward to book 3 in the series.

Great series

I can't wait until January of 2018 for book #3 in this Mercy Kilpatrick series. Kendra Elliot does a great job of writing these books. And Teri Schnaubelt does an awesome narration. I would highly recommend this series.

MUCH BETTER THAN THE 1ST BOOK!

The first book was dull as crap! Hardly any action, too much talking, and the characters doing rediculously OBVIOUS stupid things! I'm surprised I even gave the second book a chance after book 1! Book 2 was WAY better. Way more action, better story line, everything! Really enjoyed it a lot more! Thank you! P.S. The narrator for both books does an excellent job though! I give her narration 5 stars, for both books! She's a great narrator! :D

Gripping tale of survivalist gone roque

This time Mercy is working to find the serial arsonist and working on reconciliation with her family. Good story and worth the listen.

Another Winner!!

Can I give more ham 5*s?!? No, well darn. I'm a huge fan of Kendra's books and this new sweeties is an absolute winner. I loved meeting Mercy in book one, now she's like that badarsed friend we all wish we had.

She is still dealing with being back home, trying to get through to her family and be accepted. Though it's a split. One brother was murdered, so they're all dealing with that and the accepting of Mercy is not going over as it should. She's till an outsider - a trader and it's not something that will happen over night.

Truman though is right there for her. The sheriff and he hard nosed FBI agent make the best pair of gun totin', badge wearin' badarses there is.

I love how when the fire hits the fan, they all jump in and try to figure out what's happening. Who's doing it and why. Is it just kids? Is it someone doing it for a reason? So many unanswered questions rolled around them. When the dominos start to fall into place, and the fires get hotter it's going to be up to Mercy and Truman to make sure they get out alive, and in one piece.

A sheep in wolves clothing

Love this ladies stories . The dialogue flows constantly and the story lie is exciting and continuous with no padding. There's always that element of angst to highten the tension towards the climax of the book. Very enjoyable and highly recommended .
