House of Mercy by Erin Healy REVIEW

House of Mercy

When Beth's world falls apart, can she ever be whole again?

Beth has a gift of healing-which is why she wants to become a vet and help her family run their fifth-generation cattle ranch. Her father's dream of helping men in trouble and giving them a second chance is her dream too. But it only takes one foolish decision for Beth to destroy it all.

Beth scrambles to redeem her mistake, pleading with God for help, even as a mystery complicates her life. But the repercussions grow more unbearable-a lawsuit, a death, a divided family, and the looming loss of everything she cares about. Beth's only hope is to find the grandfather she never knew and beg for his help. Confused, grieving, but determined to make amends, she embarks on a horseback journey across the mountains, guided by a wild, unpredictable wolf who may or may not be real.

I heard about Healy's other book, The Bakers Wife and really wanted to read it, I haven't had the opportunity as of yet but when I saw this book by her I had to take it. I enjoyed this book because it is realistic with a touch of supernatural. 
From what I have heard about Healy's work, she can't write a bad book or bad ending. And this book proved it for me. There were so many twists and turns I didn't know where she was going to take me.  This book was well developed and written. I really liked Beth, her personality was very likable and she seemed so strong. Things seem to get so hard for her but she keeps on going, bargaining with God and dealing with death, things couldn't seem worse. 
This is another book I do recommend, I plan on keeping this book on my TBR-Again shelf, lol.
After reading this I really want to read The Bakers Wife and Never Let You Go.

I have The Baker's Wife on my tbr list as well. I haven't read any of Healy's books yet, but I did read her book with Ted Dekker. It's good to know I have two of her books to look forward to. :)
