After reading Heartbreaker by Julie Garwood, I had to read another and Mercy was not a disappointment. As with the other novel, this one more or less centered around a couple falling in love, replete with some steamy bedroom scenes. But the main plot of the book was about man's greed and how far he's willing to go and who he has to get rid of to attain wealth.

This is a good mystery and Julie Garwood always writes good characters who have a sense of humor and make you laugh. It is about a group called "The Sowing Club" that gets caught up in greed. The FBI & a Justice Attorney end up in a little town called Bowman with a beautiful doctor. Then the fun begins.....

The only contemporary Julie Garwood that I've enjoyed since she started publishing this series of books. I really enjoyed it, but all of the follow ups have been very disappointing. This one is worth it, though.

This book is part of the Buchanan sibling series. All have been very good books. The Buchanan books are: "Heartbreaker" (Nick), "Mercy" (Theo), "Murder List" (Alec), "Slow Burn" (Dylan), & "Shadow Dance" (Jordan). There is also an intersecting character story involving the brother of Michelle from Theo's story. "Killjoy" comes after "Mercy".

This is the 2nd book in the Buchanan-Renard series. Each book apparently is about different members of the Buchanan family or someone else introduced in a subsequent book. Heartbreaker the first was very good but Mercy was excellent. A couple of surprises makes it really interesting. Worth reading in order but not necesary to enjoy Mercy.

Justice Department Attorney Theo Buchanan met the girl of his dreams when his appendix nearly burst. If Dr. Michelle Renard hadn't noticed how sick he was at the party where he was guest speaker, Theo could have died. Now he has recovered and has decided to take some time off and visit the Louisiana bayou after Michelle's father, Big Daddy Jake, invited him to go fishing. When Theo arrives in the small town, he learns that someone has broken into Michelle's clinic and smashed everything. Michelle doesn't understand why someone would do this. She doesn't keep drugs on the premises. When someone comes gunning for Michelle and Theo, they are running for their lives with a band of gunmen hot on their heels.

I thought this book was a big improvement over the previous book in the series. A group of four friends calling themselves The Sowing Club have been committing white-collar crimes for several years; hiding their money in an offshore account. When their secrets are on the verge of being discovered, they will stop at nothing to keep their money and stay out of jail.

This story had a very likeable couple, along with some great supporting characters. There was just the right amount of humor to go along with the long sequences of suspense. I loved it and I'm ready to dive into the next book. My rating: 5 Stars.

This one starts out slow. It took well over 100 pages to really get going and become a thriller. You could see what was going to happen but that didn't stop it from being interesting. The ending is somewhat open and allows the reader to draw their own conclusions. Overall a good book.

I loved this book. The characters were bold, the story was good and the twist at the end caught me kind of by surprise. That's not easy to do. I loved the bayou setting and the family dynamics. A really good read. I will try to find more in this series.
