A Merciful Promise by Kendra Elliot is the 6th book in the Mercy Kilpatrick series. Sadly this is the last book in the series, a series that I wish could go on and on as I love the characters so much. However, I'm so happy to say that if you have been a Mercy Kilpatrick fan since the beginning, this book will be very satisfying for you. I will also say, that this book can be read on its own, but I hope that you go back and read the entire series later this summer because each book is full of wonderful characters and the more that you learn about Mercy and Truman, the more you will love the entire series.
In A Merciful Promise Mercy and Truman are forced to work separately because the ATF needs Mercy to be a last-minute replacement on a top-secret, under cover assignment in an anti-government militia group. This means that she can have no contact once she enters the compound. She tells her finance, Truman, that she can't tell him anything about the assignment and this eats at her because they depend on each other. When Mercy finds that her undercover partner has suddenly gone missing, and she does not even know where the emergency phone is hidden, she is in a fight for her life. She was sent in by the ATF because they understand that there is a big event being planned but they have no idea what it will be, or when it will be. If Mercy is able to get the details, she's not sure that she can get any kind of warning out in time.
Meanwhile, Truman is working on his own case of men being shot execution-style. Eventually there is an indication that perhaps Truman's case and Mercy's assignment have a connection, and now Truman is on a mission to find Mercy before it is too late. A Merciful Promise is a wonderful conclusion to this series. I can't wait to see what characters we will meet next from Kendra Elliot.
