This story reminded me a lot of the 80s TV show Quantum Leap - in that Mercy seems to jump into bodies to set things right for the people involved. Though the novel touches on Mercy's past and her identity, the main plot centers on preparing for a musical performance and sleuthing. I loved that Mercy could add an extra dimension to her voice to literally make Carmen sing like an angel. The descriptions of their choir practices really made me wish I could listen in!
The mystery was also very satisfying and surprising. At the end, we finish with Carmen's story, but we can also look forward to Mercy inhabiting other bodies as the series continues.
MERCY is available in Australia now and will be published in hardcover in the US next month. Find out more about the author.
