The story centres around the investigation into who committed the murder, which bears many similarities to another murder ten years earlier, that Ellen was also involved in.
If you have read any of Heather's other books you will know that her writing style is always gripping and storylines are intense. She doesn't shirk away from hard hitting topics and I have a feeling thag Little Mercies will be another hard hitting addictive read. This story doesn't disappoint, the characters are well written so they become familiar quickly, they are very likeable and this short story is a great introduction to Ellen, her family and Joe from the Police department. I felt like I could get straight into the investigation and as always, tried to play detective myself.
Heathers books always pack a punch and if this is anything to go by Little Mercies is going to be an absolute cracker.
Thank you for Harlequin for sending me this book via Netgalley in return for an honest review.
