Book Review: For the Love of Mercy by Leta Gail Doerr

For the Love of Mercy (The Bluegrass Country Series #2) by Leta Gail Doerr
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance) 
Date Published:  July 24, 2014
Publisher: ePublishing Works!

The only son of wealthy parents, Tyson "Jax" Ridgeton never wanted for anything, until he learns a hidden truth: adopted at the age of three, the mental images of an older sister he once passed off as fragmented dreams are real.

Armed only with a faded photo of his lost sibling, Jax lands in Brushville, Kentucky where he meets local waitress Mercy Lynn Callaway.

Mercy's unflinching optimism annoys Jax, but the curves of her body and her unwavering willingness to help his cause won't let him go.

Together, they delve into Jax's past. But as unearthed secrets grow more and more dangerous, Jax makes an unexpected discovery: he'll sacrifice everything for the love of Mercy.

Leta Gail Doerr (aka The Literary Blonde) is a small town girl with big dreams, who shares her life with her husband, son, and little dog Kimmy. She loves writing about great friendships, deep emotions and creating believable characters her readers enjoy.

For the Love of Mercy by Leta Gail Doerr is the second book in the Bluegrass Country series. This is Jax and Mercy's story. We didn't meet them in the first book, however; we did meet Lacie Jo and Emma who play  large part of this story. Emma in particular. When Jax ventures into Bluegrass country in search of his sister, he's in for some surprises. He's this rich city boy meeting the not so rich(monetarily speaking) country folks. Add in  little culture shock, and he's a fish out of water. Have no fear, Mercy keeps him in his place. I loved her personality. She was just what Jax needed. This was a fun story as we got to see each of these lives start to entangle with each other. I have a theory or two about Lacie Jo too, but we'll see.

For the Love of Mercy by Leta Gail Doerr was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my review of the next book in this series! 
Leta Gail is a small town girl with big dreams, who shares her life with her husband, son, and little dog Kimmy. She enjoys exercise, (as if), planning family vacations, dreaming up places to go with her husband, reading, tinkering with computer software, and watching her son grow.

She is a Project Manager by day working in Information Technology, who moonlights as a writer. She has a monthly column, Blonde Bytes, in a women's publication- Pastelle Magazine, where she writes about fun geeky stuff.

She loves to write about great friendships and deep emotions. She finds the humor in everyday life and creates believable characters she hopes her readers will enjoy. She likes story lines like, life after divorce, strong-willed women making their mark on the world, and finding love in unexpected places. She also enjoys writing tales that salute our nation's heroes.

She enjoys the super support of her husband and inquisitive son while she dreams big and "shoots for the moon", as her husband so aptly states.
