Finding Mercy by Michael Landon Jr & Cindy Kelley

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Finding Mercy
David C. Cook (October 1, 2014)
Michael Landon Jr. and Cindy Kelley


Michael Landon Jr., son of television legend Michael Landon, is an award-winning storyteller, first in television and film, and now in books. His print works include One More Sunrise co-written with Tracie Peterson. 

Cindy Kelley is the co-author of the novel The Silent Gift, and Traces of Mercy. Her career as a screenwriter with long-time writing partner, Michael Landon, Jr., began with the adaptation of Margery Williams’ classic story, The Velveteen Rabbit, which had a theatrical release. Several television movies followed, most notably Love Comes Softly, (based on Janette Oke’s novel) which won a CAMIE Award and the Epiphany Prize for Movie Guide’s most inspirational television movie of 2003. Cindy and her husband, Jim, make their home in the Southwest; have three adorable grandchildren and four big dogs who rule the house.


When Mercy abandons Captain Elijah Hale to search for her true identity, he goes after her. With the threat that bounty hunters might be hot on her trail, Mercy does all she can to stay ahead of the danger, frustrating both the bad men who are after her—and Captain Hale who wants to find her and escort her safely home. But when she stumbles upon clues that help her learn who she is and where she's from, the danger escalates and she has to learn to keep her friends close and her enemies even closer—if she can determine which is which!

My Thoughts:

5 Stars!
I have been impatiently waiting to read this book since last year when I read and absolutely fell in love with the first book, Traces Of Mercy! Needless to say, when I was given the opportunity to review this book I jumped at the chance! I had very high expectations for Finding Mercy and I'm thrilled to say that it surpassed all of them, I loved every minute of this book! Just when I thought it couldn't get anymore awesome, it did! I once again loved Mercy and Elijah and I absolutely adore Isaac! Finding Mercy took me on an emotional roller coaster, mainly on the two extremes of grinning from ear to ear in pure joy, to sitting on the edge of my seat in suspense wondering what would happen next, this book made me feel it all! Both this book and the first one made my favorites shelf, I highly recommend this book but Traces Of Mercy should definitely be read prior to this one! 
I just loved this book so much, I know I will be re-reading it many times in the future! 
My only complaint about this book was that the ending did seem just a tad rushed and abrupt, but granted this could simply be due to the fact that I didn't want the book to end, and it also made me a bit sad because by the ending it seems this is likely to be the last book about these characters and I really didn't want to say goodbye to them! 
In closing, I adored this book and I'm thrilled that I got the chance to read it! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via CFBA in exchange for an honest review. The above is my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
