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!
