Julia Klein’s life has begun to unravel—her daughter Amy has been suspended from school, Julia is about to lose her job, and her boyfriend Garrett is being transferred thousands of miles away. Overwhelmed, she and Amy leave for a weekend at a rambling old colonial inn. Julia never suspects that Garrett, desperate to find a way to keep Julia in his life, has decided to surprise her by joining them. Nor does she expect her daughter to befriend a mischievous ghost...or that she herself would be possessed by the malevolent spirit of a long-dead mother.
As a dark secret emerges, Julia, Amy, and Garrett find themselves pitted in a fight for survival against a savage presence that intends to resurrect/repeat/relive a horrible crime committed two centuries ago. And this time, Amy and Julia will be the victims
Mercy is the first book that I’ve read by Jan Coffey. Although I finished the book, I lost interest in it after reading the backstory of the “...malevolent spirit of a long-dead mother.” Other parts of the story consisted of elements commonly found in ghost stories, so it didn’t really have that wow factor that I was looking for.
I received an e-arc of Mercy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, thank you.
