Readers were thrilled when Kendra devoted an entire suspense series to Bone Secret regular Detective Mason Callahan. The steadfast and slightly redneck detective is evenly matched with FBI Special Agent Ava McLane. Murders, mystery, and Ava’s unbalanced twin sister keep the couple’s days from being dull.
“Elliot’s best work to date. The author’s talent is evident in the character’s wit and smart dialogue…One wouldn’t necessarily think a psychological thriller and romance would mesh together well, but Elliot knows what she’s doing when she turns readers’ minds inside out and then softens the blow with an unforgettable love story.“ – RT Reviews

Raised in a Central Oregon cabin built by her prepper father, Mercy Kilpatrick was forced out of her tight community after high school. She left without looking back. Today, murders in the prepper world have driven small town police chief Truman Daly to ask the FBI for help, and FBI Special Agent Mercy Kilpatrick returns to the tiny town of Eagles Nest to face the anti-government family she abandoned fifteen years ago.
“Elliot is a master of romantic suspense, and her latest sets a rural community of preppers (people preparing for disaster) in the sights of a killer. Elliot expertly interweaves the current murders with the damage that past crimes have done to Mercy and Truman’s souls, and she lays out convincing tracks to a number of possible culprits in Eagle’s Nest. Fascinating details about prepper lifestyle give extra flavor to this mystery, adding to its memorability.” —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review
