Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Superb addition to this fantastic #CrimeThriller series – Pray for Mercy by D.K. Hood – would be great as a television series IMHO!

My Review:

Whilst many crime thrillers focus on the crime
This shares more about the team and how they spend their time.
There are family dramas, friendships and taking chances
As well as heartwarming romances.

The characters are shown as people who have a life
Away from their jobs and all its associated strife.
Making them feel like folks you may know
And making the books even more page turners as you go.

This time it is elderly ladies who're being killed
Leaving Jenna and her team with hearts that are chilled.
Why are these ladies being targeted - and by who?
Finding out is what Jenna and team are determined to do.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this chilling tale
And the ending had me smiling - it couldn't fail!
The author brings the events vividly to life so
The people and places feel like ones you know.

I can't wait to read more about Alton and Kane
And discover what happened to that new colleague who was a pain.
An intriguing crime thriller, such a great read,
Just what folks who enjoy this genre need!

What a great addition to this series of crime thrillers,
With totally unexpected serial killers.
I can never resist this author's books
And highly recommend you give them a good look!

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
It is such a great read, this is my honest review.

About the Book: 

Her heart races as a noise from downstairs wakes her. She checks every room in her small home, but it’s not until she returns to the safety of her bedroom does she see movement. She’s not alone. And nobody can help her now…

Writing scrawled on the wall of Sheriff Jenna Alton’s office overnight leads her and her deputy David Kane to a secluded house on the outskirts of town. Inside, Jenna is devastated to find a much-loved local resident lying in a pool of blood, stab wounds covering her lifeless body. What monster would attack a defenseless woman living alone?

With no trace of the killer at the scene, the deadly message written on Jenna’s door is her only clue. But as the small town grieves, it leads her to a contractor who recently had access to the woman’s home. She races to interview him, only to discover the wreck of a car on a steep mountain road with another dead woman inside.

Jenna knows the victims were friends and regularly went to church together. She thinks a twisted killer has been watching them, waiting for the perfect time to strike. But before she can make her next move, one of her own team is found unconscious and covered in the blood of a third female victim—a knife inches away from his hand.

Pulse racing, Jenna questions her shaken deputy, who can’t explain why he was in the woman’s house. Could he really be a killer, or is someone playing an evil game? The clock ticks to uncover a dark secret that connects all three victims, but can she work it out before another innocent life is taken?

An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller from a USA Today bestselling author. If you’re a fan of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot, you will love this gripping read.

    Wonderful review Elaine. I would love to read this series, it sounds so good, but 14 books is a bit much to add to my TBR right now.
