  • A BORROWING OF BONES by Paula Munier

    A BORROWING OF BONES by Paula Munier is the first book in the Mercy & Elvis Mysteries series. Mercy Carr, a 29 year old retired MP that served in Afghanistan, returns to her hometown of Northshire, Vermont with Elvis, a 5 year old Belgian Malinois retired bomb sniffing dog suffering with canine PTSD. Mercy although injured in battle is suffering more from the death of her fiancé, Martinez, who was critically injured. In his last words to Mercy, he asked her to take care of Elvis. It took a long battle and lots of funds, but she intends to fulfill her promise to him. Together they must work through their past, physically and emotionally, learn to work together as a team and to return to civilian way of life again. Grandmother Patience Fleury O’Sullivan, a big animal veterinarian, also owns Sterling Animal Hospital named in honor of late husband Sheriff Sterling O’Sullivan. Being of Quaker back ground, she’s very proud of her name and named her children accordingly as they did theirs as in Mercy’s name. Mercy dearly loves her Grandmother and has more of a connection to her than her own Mother. Patience was a wonderful supporting character in the book and I hope to see more of her in the follow up books. Although not an MP any longer, Mercy’s mind still works like a military cop. It lands her finding not one but several dead bodies. She finds evidence that has her thinking that they are all connected. Can she prove it? It’s with Elvis and Mercy’s first find, a set of bones with a few items like a belt buckle, in the woods that has her meeting U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner and his search and rescue Newfoundand, Susie Bear. They seem to have a connection from the start. He is the one that listens to her theories and helps her to explore them even if part of the time it is to try to keep her out of trouble or danger. Along the way, she meets Amy Walker and baby Helena, who temporarily abandoned for Mercy to find. When they come up both missing, Mercy is desperate to find them, make sure they are safe and help the young mother as she can. Unfortunately, Amy’s step-father is one of those murdered making Amy a prime suspect by everyone but Mercy. Mercy’s house got broken into. Upon returning home, she startled intruder who escaped shooting Elvis as he ran into woods. The incident triggers the PTSD for both Mercy and Elvis, but Troy and Susie Bear were there for them as was Patience who made sure Elvis had the best medical care. There are all sorts of twists and turns, but the author weaves an amazing story that will have you on the edge of your seat, flipping pages pulling for the good guys and trying to figure out who the bad guys all are and what part they play. The author has done her research because this book is accurate and detailed while still very entertaining making the whole storyline 100% believable. Love the way she worked all of the Shakespeare quotes and details adding a wonderful depth to the story I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a well written, great mystery. After you read book one, you will be on the edge of your seating waiting for book #2. I, for one, can’t wait to see what other adventures Mercy and Elvis get into. I can’t wait to see how the attraction between Mercy and Troy develops. Is there a romance in the making for Patience too?

  • Bog the Trail

    Detectives with dogs on the hunt for answers is a favorite story line for me. Retired military MP Mercy and her dog Elvis search for answers when they discover a abandoned baby in the woods. But.. when the baby disappears from the hospital these two do not rest until she is found. With the help of the U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner it is danger behind every corner. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgally with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." Look forward to more in this series.

  • A Borrowing of Bones

    A very good read on many levels. I really enjoyed the characters and the wonderful, trained dogs with winning personalities. An absorbing and clever plot with many motives to untangle.
