Mercy and Mayhem: A Mercy Mares Cozy Mystery
Engaging murder mystery with a unique twist
This was a fun little mystery book for me. I enjoy a good ‘whodunnit’ from time to time, but this one had a twist that I’ve not found in other books before. There were unexpected deaths … in an environment where deaths are well-expected …a nursing home!
The author takes us on a journey of chaos, confusion, mystery, and vengeance. The characters are realistic, easy to identify with and quirky–everything characters should be. I would have preferred a little more description of what they looked like, but it didn’t deter me from reading.
The story was tied up nicely in an intriguing way that kept me reading all the way to the end. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys light-hearted mysteries, because the one thing I found refreshing about this book was the lack of vulgarity and intense sexual situations. Not that I’m against these elements in general. They have their places in certain books. But this author was able to tell an engaging story without those elements. Who knew nursing homes could be so interesting?
