The second book in Coble’s Mercy Falls series reads just as well as the first.  I find that I am really enjoying the mix oc Christian romance and mystery/thriller.  The second novel’s heroine makes a brief appearance in the first novel as Addie’s new friend.  Katie Russell is a great character, full of stubbornness but a caretaker’s heart.  I really connected with this character.  of course, the male interest is also intriguing.  I could exactly picture Will Jesperson in my mind throughout the story.   His quiet strength and determination are a perfect match for Katie.

Of course, Coble packs the novel with red herrings and obvious suspicions, leading the reading on a twisting and turning ride to the truth.  The revelations of the villains didn’t fail to satisfy and surprise.  I enjoyed the ride.  And I heard there’s a third Mercy Falls novel coming out this year.  I look forward to it!
