About this ebook

A rollicking cozy mystery series from USA Today bestselling author A.W. Hartoin.

For fans of Janet Evanovich, Tricia O'Malley, and Jana DeLeon...

What do a dead cop, a murdered bride, and a sizzling summer have in common? Mercy Watts, of course.

Nurse and dutiful daughter, Mercy Watts is on vacation from her parents. The great detective and his loving wife are on a cruise and, for the first time in years, Mercy thinks she's off the hook. She won’t be doing any investigating for the family firm. No tailing suspects. No background checks. Nothing but her own stuff for three whole weeks. She’s thrilled.

But when Tommy’s old partner has a fatal heart attack out of nowhere, Dad has one of his famous feelings and orders Mercy to look into it. She tries not to get sucked in. She really does. But she is her father's daughter. Soon Gavin's death leads to a more grisly one, the death of a bride on her wedding day. Can the two be connected? Was Gavin murdered? Now Mercy can't stop. You do for family. That's all there is to it.

I got this story for free. Did not expect much from it. I had not read thia author. Boy was I wrong. I enjoyed this book so much, I downloaded all that was available. They are not heavy murders. But fun and easy reads. If you like Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swenson, then ou will like these too.

Seems like it would be decent. Read about 100 pages and have been bored. Will not finish, took 4 nights to even get this far. Tired of reading about how Mercy looks. I get the point!! Might have a good storyline, but I did not find myself wanting to find out how it ends.

Great read; A quirky character that looks like Marilyn Monroe gets stuck solving a mystery for her family business. I will certainly read all the other Mercy Watts books by author A.W. Hartoin
