Paranormal Romantic Suspense is one of my favorite genres and Saving Mercy (Fatal Truth, Book 1) is the first in the series and was AWESOME! Saving Mercy reminds me of a True Crime show or a Psychological Suspense movie. It does have some graphic violence, alot of blood, and murder. Good and evil battling against each other. The way Abbie tells her story and the words she has chosen gave me goosebumps, but in a good way. You can feel the pain Cain and Mercy are going through and just want them to be happy and together. This is my first book by the author Abbie Roads, but she is now one author I will keep looking for her next books to be released!

Something I would compare to reading Stephen King
This book has given me a major dilemma because now I just can't figure out which Abbie Roads book is my favorite! Saving Mercy absolutely blew my mind with it's twisted story of murder, obsession, and tortured characters. It's a story that will mess with your mind more than you can even prepare for, and you'll love the whole entire experience. Cain Killion, son of serial killer Adam Killion, now works with the FBI using his ability to relive crime scenes to help solve cases. When a case hits way too close to home near the 20th anniversary of his fathers killings, he's sucked back into the Killer Killion world. And he needs Mercy Ledger's, the only surviving victim of his fathers and current resident of a psychiatric hospital, help to solve the most recent murders. The telling of this story is something I would compare to reading Stephen King or watching Criminal Minds. It was that intense and thrilling to read, and I didn't put it down once I started. When you think you know everything, and have it all figured out, Ms. Roads is right there to prove you wrong and blow your mind yet again. Honestly, this book should come with a warning for those with heart issues because I felt like I was going to have a heart attack from all of the suspense being thrown at me. Cain was a character that I wish was real just so I could find him and comfort him. Life had thrown so much his way and he was barely holding on to his sanity. Then Mercy was brought to his life and with her an evident change to his character. The development between these two character was something you don't read about everyday and it had me tearing up for them both. I fell for them both and they now have a special place in my heart. The bottom line is if you don't read this book I'm not sure I can be your friend anymore. Saving Mercy now has the spot of my 2017 favorite read and I really don't think anything else is going to be able to take that titled away from it.

Dark, Thrilling, and Romantic
I voluntarily received an ARC of Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads in exchange for an honest review. Oh my goodness! That is all I could think for several minutes after finishing Saving Mercy. Abbie Roads is a magnificent artist and story teller and she has blown my mind once again. I am constantly amazed at how she manages to combine so much pain and darkness with immense amounts of love to form her books. Mercy and Cain are both so damaged and have been dealt a hand in life that no one should ever have to deal with and their pasts have intertwined to connect them in unimaginable ways. Seeing them struggle to deal with their tragic childhoods while facing new horrors kept me from putting this book down until I had read every last word. Saving Mercy left me with the worst book-hangover I've had in a long time. I tried to start another book the next morning, but it just wasn't an Abbie Roads book.
Saving Mercy is another amazing story written by Abbie Roads. This story has a way of pulling you in and holding you captive from the very first page. It will have you gasping, sitting on the edge of your chair with every twist that unfolds. It is a paranormal, romantic suspense story like no other! Mercy and Cain are trying to heal and deal with troubled, gruesome, tragic childhoods. I found myself getting so caught up in this story that everything else around me disappeared. Even though it is a darker story, Abbie Roads finds a way to add a touching romantic side as well. Her writing style is so good that as she describes each scene and character, you can see them, cry with them, feel their heartache, smell the stench of certain characters and feel like you are actually in the room with them. Your heart breaks for what they went through and you cheer them on hoping for a happy ending. When I closed the book at the end, I found myself sitting quietly and thinking wow....
Wow. This book blew me...
Wow. This book blew me away. I've never read Abbie's books before and I can see that I've been missing out. The characters are fascinating and have real depth. The story was so heartbreaking and at the same time had me on the edge of my seat. I will definitely be reading more of the series as well as going back and reading the other books in Abbie's catalog. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
