Book Review - The Tender Mercy of Roses by Anna Michaels

One of the most compelling and unexpected books I've read lately is Anna Michael's beautiful novel, "The Tender Mercy of Roses."

About The Book:
While the body of rodeo star Pony Jones lies motionless in the northern Alabama woods, her spirit is on a mission to find her killer. Invisible to the eye but not to the sixth sense, the only thing Pony can do is guide the living to the truth.
Her grief-stricken father, Titus, wants nothing more than retribution for his daughter's death, so when former police detective Jo Beth Dawson comes to town, something compels him to seek out her help.

But when Jo Beth and Titus team up to track down Pony's murderer, it turns loose a whirlwind of intense emotion and unexpected encounters. As they uncover more and more clues leading them to the killer, dark family secrets are revealed and the two must search their souls for redemption.

When I picked up this Southern fiction novel, I sure wasn't expecting to find a story of intrigue, suspense, romance and rodeoing! But with her wonderful style of storytelling, author Anna Michaels weaves all the elements together, along with a healthy dose of Cherokee Indian mystism and lore, to present an unforgettable book.
Her characters were strong-willed, and personable, and the setting in Northern Alabama was as charming as the misty mountains and cool clear creeks that can be found there.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend to anyone wanting a little something different to read.
