Synopsis: Like his FBI-agent brother Nick, Theo Buchanan is devoted to his crime-fighting career. Only Theo works the other side of the desk as an esteemed Justice Department attorney. At a gala ceremony in New Orleans, he is suddenly struck ill and is rushed to a hospital where a brilliant and beautiful surgeon, Dr. Michelle Renard, saves his life. It is not the only life-and-death crisis that will ensnare Theo -- for he is about to uncover a ring of criminals bent on preserving their secrecy at any cost.
Review: Mercy is the second novel from Julie Garwood's new modern day romances, second after Heartbreaker. In my opinion, Mercy was a far better book than the first.
In this book, I actually liked the characters. Michelle, our heroine, is a good person, doctor by profession. She loves her father and brothers, is kind but also is used to taking care of herself. Theo is an attorny who was saved by Michelle at a gala they both happen to be at (his appendix burst). Soon enough, their romance begins. These two characters were just fun to read about and much more realistic than the ones in Heartbreaker.
The mystery part of this was pretty good too. Who is the Sowing Club really? It's fun to sit with these kind of books and guess at who's done what too whom.
If you have a few hours to pare and like romantic mysteries, definitely pick this book up.
