Blog Tour: Mercy Creek by M.E. Browning

October 11 – November 5, 2021 Virtual Book Tour

In an idyllic Colorado town, a young girl goes missing—and the trail leads into the heart and mind of a remorseless killer.

The late summer heat in Echo Valley, Colorado turns lush greenery into a tinder dry landscape. When a young girl mysteriously disappears, long buried grudges rekindle. Of the two Flores girls, Marisa was the one people pegged for trouble. Her younger sister, Lena, was the quiet daughter, dutiful and diligent—right until the moment she vanished.

Detective Jo Wyatt is convinced the eleven-year-old girl didn’t run away and that a more sinister reason lurks behind her disappearance. For Jo, the case is personal, reaching far back into her past. But as she mines Lena’s fractured family life, she unearths a cache of secrets and half-lies that paints a darker picture.

As the evidence mounts, so do the suspects, and when a witness steps forward with a shocking new revelation, Jo is forced to confront her doubts, and her worst fears. Now, it’s just a matter of time before the truth is revealed—or the killer makes another deadly move.

Why Should You Read This?

Second book in the series, Mercy Creek follows the first book – Shadow Ridge. While it is not absolutely necessary to have read the first one, it does give a bit more context to the character of Jo Wyatt. The mid-length chapters are perfect, as they keep the reader engaged and captivated. This is the first book I have read by Browning, and I loved her writing style. This is a perfect read for people who appreciate the details of an investigative procedure, and not just the plot or character development. The author keeps you guessing, not just about the ending, but also about the psychology or motive behind the crime. There are certain liberties that the author has taken for creative writing, but you can move beyond that, it is a good read.

However you may find me reviewing non-fiction as well. I strongly believe- "Never judge a book by it's cover." To follow me on Instagram: @review_thick_and_thin

  1. Thanks for sharing and your succinct and nuanced review helps one appreciate the what they are picking up. As always, you feature books with interesting storylines and would make for an engaging read.
    P.S. There is definitely an audience for those who appreciate the “procedural” aspects of a crime investigation, especially in books but also on TV / movies.
