Ance so for me it s a perfect fitInitially I though the book started a little slow as it reintroduced the characters from the 1st book their relationships and some of the events from book 1 It also had to introduce a lot of new characters that weren t present in the first book The recurring ones are primarily Mercy s family her partner Eddie and her love interest police chief Truman DalyThen the plot started to reel me in and I didn t want to book the book down When fires and murders start to happen the FBI and Truman s department start looking into a local group with anti government sentiments Mercy s relationship with her family is a strong theme in this book and her conflict with her brother Owen was a really good element to the story lineAlthough this book could be read as a stand alone the nuances of Mercy s family are better appreciated by reading Book 1 first I will definitely continue to read this series and look forward to the next book It s been two months since FBI Agent Mercy Kilpatrick s return to her hometown of Eagle s Nest Oregon and she s adjusting to her relocation to the bureau s Bend office Additionally she s taken in her 17 year old niece Kaylie and is in a relationship with Police Chief Truman Daly She and local law enforcement are re FBI Agent Mercy Fitzpatrick has returned to
