Kim Vogel Sawyer has officially become my favorite author. I have never read a book of hers that I didn't like and lately I have absolutely loved every one. She never disappoints me and she has a style of writing the speaks straight to my heart. I love the way she combines history, romance, action and faith.
Echoes of Mercy is my favorite book of hers yet. At least for now anyway. I'm sure that I'll say the same thing about her next book because each one seems to get better and better.
Caroline is an undercover agent who works to stop child labor in factories. After a previous agent turns up dead while on assignment Caroline takes his place at the Dinsmore Chocolate Factory. Her job is to investigate the death to see if there was foul play and finish the job that he started. She quickly finds out the the factory manager is a rotten scoundrel who likes to bully the workers, especially the women.
Ollie Moore is also a new worker at the factory. Even though he is just a janitor he is very friendly and seems well educated. He becomes a quick ally to Caroline (who goes by Carri while undercover). He joins forces with her and helps her investigate the death of the "previous worker". There are sparks igniting between the two of them, but it seems as if they both of them have secret identities. When they find out the truth about each other will they be able to pursue their relationship or will their differences be to much to overcome?
There is so much more to this story line than what I can write about in a short review. Believe me when I say this is an excellent book that is so well written.
Even though it is a historical fiction story it is rooted in true events from history. I love it when an author takes true events and writes a well written story that could easily of fit into that time period.
