Publisher's 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.

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.

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).<br/><br/>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. <br/>

Pleasantly Surprised

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this audio book. To start with I wasn't sure if I liked Mercy, I found her to be self obsorbed, self-centred and a bit annoying with what I felt was whinging. However, after a while, I realised that people probably do carry on like she does i.e. moan in their own head how annoying a family relative or friend of the family can be or when your parents do the guilt trip on you. After a while I found I could relate to her and it amused me.I thought this book had a good story line, with interesting twists and turns. I did pick early on who I thought the stalker was and for a moment there I did doubt myself until the person was revealed and I realised that it seemed quite obvious. I did like how the story wrapped up and I found that each of the individuals had pretty good character development.I certainly recommend this as a light hearted mystery with a female as the main sleuth. I look foward to the book in the series.
