Summary

It's summer in St. Louis and Mercy Watts is on vacation from her parents. The great detective and his nosy wife are on a cruise and Mercy thinks she's off the hook for doing any investigating for them. But when a family friend has a fatal heart attack, Dad has one of his famous feelings and orders Mercy to look into it. Mercy tries not to get sucked in. She really does, but she's 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.

Don't let this one get away

Any additional comments?

This is the first book in the Mercy Watts series. I downloaded the book as a freebie and I had brought the audio book before I had even finished reading it(oh and the second book).

Mercy is not you average anything, looks ... imagine Marylyn Monroe, Job... nurse (instead of your normal P.I, or detective) , which all adds to the fun as she doesn't want either she just want to be normal and have a enough money to pay the rent, and spend time with her boyfriend (who as a Dr is always on call) but with family, sneaky senior citizens and a murder nothing is ever easy.

Funny and entertaining

This was a fun lighthearted book that makes it delightful to read. Mercy is a nurse who is being enticed into participating in the family business of private investigator. While she is unwittingly cutting teeth in the investigation business, she is being hassled with being a look-a-like Marilyn Moore and having her pictures plaster on youtube.

She is surrounded with an amusing group of people, her ex-police father, her mother, from whom she inherited her Marilyn looks, two funny god mothers, and a host of others. The mystery is interesting, but remember this is a comedy first. Many of the reviewers did not like the references to Marilyn or how often. That was not a big deal to me. Actually, that added a comedic element; the paparazzi constantly chasing her catching her in compromising situations.

I am hooked on the series.

Amazing Potential Lost

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would give the main character, Mercy Watts, a backbone!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Having a beautiful, smart protagonist who happens to look like Marilyn Monroe would have been more interesting, if she hadn't let so many men in the book push her around! Mercy's inability to stand up for herself when faced with her father's friends, her cousin, etc. was so disappointing, and really unnecessary. Why waste so much intelligence on someone so easily pushed around?

Do you think A Good Man Gone needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not unless it's about how Mercy toughens up.
