    Super Fun Read!

    In the third book of the Mercy Watts Series we join Mercy as she is caring for the aunts, trying to solve a family mystery all while she is suppose to be packing for a ski trip with her boyfriend, Pete, and his parent's.  Pete has neglicted to tell his parents any of the many things which make Mercy not a unique woman even though she has been on the. news, on you-tube and in newspapers. This has Mercy on edge and now she has a been ask to return with a package for a terminally ill child, one which is crucial in his care, but is also illegal.  With Mercy things just don't go smoothly regardless of her best planning. 
    A.W. Hartoin, author of this series, has again brought us an inventive plot with interesting, exciting new characters. The mystery she weaves is a masterpiece. Intrigue. Suspense. Who done it? We have it all. And it seems to change continually.  This cast was so 'in their own world' our sleuth had quite a challenge unraveling the result of their fears and actions from decades ago as they were so entwined around new fears, new dreams, long sought revenge and the competitiveness, even greediness, which matched that of years gone by.   In playing this out Hartoin takes the reader on a bit of a rollercoaster ride leaving us dazed and finding it difficult to grasp the direction of our story. That is remedied and we are set back on course with an exciting, unexpected ending.
    Aaron was another of Hartoin's ingenious characters who has been with us as Mercy's shadow.  His eccentric ways and his character are entertaining.  He is just around too much and the idea of him being able to walk into a restaurant kitchen sight unseen and start cooking is a stretch.  
    The setting of this book is a ski town.  Hartoin painted a vivid picture transporting the reader to the busy ski town covered in snow.  Not only do we see the sidewalks, the touristwith their cameras, the giftshops, we hear the sound and feel the brisk air.  Hartion's writing does this with such ease it never sounds forced. 
    The heartbeat of this series is Mercy's antics, suspense and the mystery.  We fell in love with Mercy's character from the beginning of book one.  We see her as a woman deserving of respect.  This book being a trip with Pete and his family would have been good time for relationship definition. Without saying too much and spoiling it for those who have not read, I will just say the Mercy we have come to love would not accept Pete's behaviour or his excuses.
    I highly recommend any of A.W. Hartoin's books.  Her original flavor and zesty plot will not disappoint and you will have extended you circle of friends as you get to know her characters.
    I am hoping for book 4 - what will Mercy get herself into next?

    Mercy Watts is off to meet her boyfriend's parents during a skii

    Mercy Watts is off to meet her boyfriend's parents during a skiing vacation at Cooper Mountain and everything goes haywire when the guy she's supposed to meet on the sly to pick up some medicine for a friend's very ill son ends up in a coma and Mercy finds herself investigating a case of attempted murder. Pretty soon, mysteries abound and Mercy finds herself in the thick of it. 




    I love Mercy Watts and her quirky friends and family. The banter between them makes me laugh out loud and keeps a smile on my face until the last page...when I'm sad because I want more Mercy!!
