Feb 04, Vicki rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mercy by Julie Garwood is such an elaborate story of lies and deceit, murder and trickery. I loved every minute of it. The story starts with meeting the sewing club. A group that is working to skim funds any way they can to reach their financial goal.
Once they reach the goal, then they will divide the money and disappear. They had no doubt they could pull it off. When John's wife becomes to annoying for him, he arranges with the others to hit someone for a mercy killing. They find out it is a c Mercy by Julie Garwood is such an elaborate story of lies and deceit, murder and trickery. They find out it is a con and then everything starts to fall apart.
The revenge of the dead wife is delicious. He certainly deserved that fate. When Theo Buchanan comes to Bowen Louisiana he is met with a hilarious welcome.
The townspeople have plans for him and they make not bones about it. He is there to fish and visit with Mike Renard. He liked her ever since she saved his life at that party they both attended. The romance of Theo and Mike, now known as Michelle, is adorable. They are both drawn to each other, but they know it can't work. They live in two different states.
But boy do they want it to. It is fun to read their interaction and conversations. The dead wife has sent a package to her relatives and expects them to be able to stop her husband from getting off scott free. She wants him to suffer. The writing is divine. I laughed at the way the family acted about Theo being in town. I laughed at the misunderstanding of the young people of the town. It has some great comical moments.
However, when the story got intense the writing was just as good in the serious and dangerous telling. I was glad to give this book a full 5 stars. View all 10 comments. She was fantastic! Traister does a wonderful job on the southern Louisiana Cajun accents. I am sure they would be much thicker in Real Life, but they do need to be understandable on audio. Still, I liked her softening accent as she moved away from home, becoming Dr.
Especially when they push her buttons! I think most people do this in Real Life. She manages to make him sound cynical, worldly, and sexy.
Overall, Ms. I love that Julie Garwood is releasing some of her books out on audio and they are finding such wonderful narrators. Her books deserve them! View all 24 comments. Jul 09, Cyndi rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Julie Garwood! In this book we have a little girl in the Bayou who grows up to be a brilliant surgeon. And we have a lawyer who has lost his passion. In the middle of their love story is murder and mayhem. A really good book, but skip the audio. The narrator tries to do a Cajun accent and fails.
Bless her heart. View 1 comment. Such a great read! The narrator Christina Traister for this book does a fantastic job! I'm not going to write a detailed review since there are many great reviews posted here on Goodreads already. But, I will say I loved this book!!! June View 2 comments. What a happy surprise! This one felt almost like the old Julie Garwood , writing her Highland Lairds, even though it's set in the present time in Louisiana's legendary bayou -- gator and gumbo country.
Most of the action occurs in Bowen, a tiny swamp town. Descriptive setting. This book's got Garwood's signature sense of humor and some of her most heartwarming characters. The attraction simmers. There is only one main plot line, so the story felt tight, not meandering as with some of h 4. There is only one main plot line, so the story felt tight, not meandering as with some of her books. Good suspense, too.
I began on audio and switched to print, because I was absorbed in the story but didn't like the narration by Christina Traister.
Unbearable Cajun accent for the men. Big Daddy always sounded drunk or stoned, and stupid. Got a refund. Garwood dreamt up a hero to warm the coldest night. Theo Buchanan is a hot-blooded, soft-hearted, dirty-fighting Federal attorney with connections and class. He's weary of chasing down thugs for the US Justice Department -- like roaches, they just keep coming. Unconsciously seeking something more, Buchanan's a goner when he looks past Michelle's beauty and brilliance to her "best feature" -- her loving heart, of course.
As an attorney fighting pro bono for the underdog, he reminded me even more of Harrison in Garwood's historical, For the Roses. I loved Michelle, aka Mike. She's a Garwood girl through and through. A kind heart, a sharp mind, a scrapper. Plus, she's not one bit stupid. This is no Sara the Silly, of parasol infamy in The Gift.
Decent suspense! I was surprised by a few of the plot twists. One of the better suspense plots I have encountered in this RS genre. By better, I mean coherent, credible, and unpredictable. Some vivid scenes when the Sowing Club and their accomplice The Monk hunted down Michelle and Theo in the twisty-turny swamp. Vivid scene at the hospital. Quibbles about the suspense? Nothing major, but I could do without the irrelevant scene where Monk recalls killing an adolescent girl.
It pulled me from the story, and I didn't need to know more about him. Also, I think Catherine transformed too quickly and without enough justification, from ambitious society beauty to bed-bound hypochondriac.
I chuckled aloud at the football scenes. After all, he kept all his old playbooks from college. I chuckled at how the townsfolk tried to entice their "coach" to stick around -- and it got me hankering for Cajun food. Buchanan helps a poor frightened little boy the fence and -- with Noah Clayborne's help -- takes on the nasty Carson brothers, sugar mill owners. Memorable, poignant, and vivid scene when Michelle performs immediate surgery on a critically wounded little patient.
Textured secondary characters: Also loved John Paul Renard, her antisocial big brother, so reminiscent of grumpy old Brodick, in Ransom. What a character -- he needs his own book! Turns out he got one, Killjoy. A former elite Marine, John Paul rules the bayou based on reputation alone nobody messes with his sister or breaks into his Daddy's bar. He's a hunter assassin and a "damned fine" furniture maker.
A man after my own heart. Can he cook, too? He plays a major secondary role in this book. One explicit love scene, and several more are alluded to. Some swearing -- but not much, and no profanity. Some murder and violence -- but thankfully, there's nothing gruesome or grisly, no bloodcurdling psychotic scenes like in the prequel, Heartbreaker.
The Sowing Club murderers just kill for money, not for pleasure. No typos noted. Since John Paul and Monk battle it out in the sequel, I will read it. Killjoy , coming up next! View all 18 comments. Well done romantic suspense. Engaging characters. Neat things happened.
I read the physical book a few years ago and just now listened to the audiobook. About The Book. Chapter 1 Theo Buchanan couldn't seem to shake the virus. He knew he was running a fever because every bone in his body ached and he had chills. He refused to acknowledge that he was ill, though; he was just a little off-kilter, that was all. He could tough it out. Besides, he was sure he was over the worst of it. The god-awful stitch in his side had subsided into a dull throbbing, and he was positive that it meant he was on the mend.
If it was the same bug that had infected most of the staff back in his Boston office, then it was one of those twenty-four-hour things, and he should be feeling as good as new by tomorrow morning. Except, the throbbing in his side had been going on for a couple of days now. He decided to blame his brother, Dylan, for that ache. He'd really nailed Theo during a family football game on their parents' lawn at Nathan's Bay.
Yeah, the pulled muscle was Dylan's fault, but Theo figured that if he continued to ignore it, the pain would eventually go away. Damn, he was feeling like an old man these days, and he wasn't even thirty-three yet.
He didn't think he was contagious, and he had too much to do to go to bed and sweat the fever out of his body. He'd flown from Boston to New Orleans to speak at a law symposium on organized crime and to receive recognition he didn't believe he deserved for simply doing his job. Tonight was the first of three black-tie affairs. He'd promised to attend a fund-raiser, and he couldn't back out. Dinner was going to be prepared by five of the top chefs in the city, but the gourmet food was going to be wasted on him.
The thought of swallowing anything, even water, made his stomach lurch. He hadn't eaten anything since yesterday afternoon. He sure as certain wasn't up to pointless chitchat tonight.
He tucked the room key into his pocket and was reaching for the doorknob, when the phone rang. It was his brother Nick calling to check in. Boston or Holy Oaks? Tommy would send me straight to hell. Hard to believe, isn't it? I told her I was good-looking and she believed me. She's staying with Mom and Dad until we all head back to Iowa for the wedding. What are you doing tonight?
You want something.
What is it? Come on, Nick.
I'm gonna be late. You can't keep running for the rest of your life. I know what you're doing. You think that if you bury yourself in work, you won't think about Rebecca. It's been four years since she died, but you -- " Theo cut him off. Let me talk to her," he said. He sat down on the side of the bed and realized he was feeling better. She made everyone feel good. She went out with Jordan, and you know our sister. God only knows what time they'll get home.
Anyway, I promised Laurant that I'd track you down and ask I figured you already knew that, but Laurant thought I should ask you anyway. Have you given your speech yet? For once, stop thinking about work. See the sights. Get laid. You know, have a good time. Hey, I know He's in Biloxi for a couple of months for a training conference. He could drive over to New Orleans, and the two of you could have some fun.
The FBI agent had become a close friend of the family after working on several assignments with Nick and then later assisting Theo with his investigations as a federal attorney for the Justice Department. He was a good man, but he had a wicked sense of fun, and Theo wasn't sure he could survive a night out with Noah just now. Theo hung up the phone, stood, and quickly doubled over from the pain that radiated through his right side. It had started in his belly, but it had moved down, and, damn, but it stung.
The muscle he'd pulled felt like it was on fire. A stupid football injury wasn't going to keep him down. Muttering to himself, he grabbed his cell phone from the charger, put it into his breast pocket with his reading glasses, slipped his gun into his belt holster, and left the room. By the time he reached the lobby, the pain had receded and he was feeling almost human again. That, of course, only reinforced his own personal golden rule.
Ignore the pain and it would go away. Besides, a Buchanan could tough anything out. It was a night to remember. Michelle had never attended such an extravagant affair before, and as she stood on the steps overlooking the hotel ballroom, she felt like Alice about to fall through the looking glass into Wonderland.
There were flowers everywhere, beautiful spring flowers in sculptured urns on the marble floors and in crystal vases on all the white linen tablecloths. In the very center of the ballroom, beneath a magnificent crystal chandelier, was a cluster of giant hothouse-nurtured magnolia trees in full bloom. Their heavenly fragrance filled the air. Waiters moved smoothly through the crowd carrying silver trays with fluted champagne glasses while others rushed from table to table lighting long, white tapered candles.
Mary Ann Winters, a friend since childhood days, stood by Michelle's side taking it all in. I swear every man is staring at you. How could anything look so plain and ordinary on a hanger and so -- " "So devastatingly sexy on you? It clings in all the right places. Face it, you've got a killer figure. She thought about how much she'd paid for the dress and decided she would have to wear it at least twenty times to make it cost-effective.
She wondered if other women did that -- rationalized a frivolous expense to appease the guilt. There were so many more important things she could have used the money for, and when, in heaven's name, was she ever going to have another opportunity to wear this beautiful dress again?
Not in Bowen, she thought. Not in a million years. I never should have let you talk me into buying this dress. You never spend any money on yourself. I'll bet it's the first really gorgeous dress you've ever owned, isn't it? You're absolutely beautiful tonight. Promise me you'll stop worrying and enjoy yourself.
I'll stop worrying. Now let's go mingle. There's hors d'oeuvres and champagne out in the courtyard, and we've got to eat at least a thousand dollars' worth each. That's what the tickets cost. I'll meet you there. Cooper spotted Michelle and motioned for her to join him. He was the chief of surgery at Brethren Hospital, where she had been moonlighting the past month. Cooper was usually reserved, but the champagne had rid him of his inhibitions, and he was quite affectionate.
And effervescent. He kept telling her how happy he was that she was using the tickets he'd given her and how pretty she looked all dressed up.
Michelle thought that if Dr. Cooper got any happier, he was going to pass out in the soup. A few minutes later, Cooper's wife joined them with another older couple in tow. Michelle used the opportunity to sneak away. She walked around into the adjacent hallway with the bank of elevators. And that's when she noticed him.
He was leaning against a pillar, hunched over, tilted protectively to one side. The man was tall, broad-shouldered, well built, like an athlete, she thought.
But there was a sickly gray pallor to his complexion, and as she walked toward him, she saw him grimace and grab his stomach.
He was definitely in trouble. Published in: Full Name Comment goes here. Are you sure you want to Yes No. Be the first to like this. No Downloads. Views Total views. Actions Shares.
