The summer that Mercy graduated from high school was marred when her family was killed in a tragic auto accident. Then, at their funeral, Mercy sees a mysterious figure in black that no one else can apparently see. Later, she meets her new neighbor, Kit, who does a blog about paranormal phenomena. Together they try to understand what Mercy has seen.
Chasing Mercy by Stacy Claflin is a fast-paced paranormal fantasy that keeps the reader guessing from the first page to the last. Some of the dialogue seems forces and a bit trite, but Claflin does a fairly good job of moving the action along to a surprise ending that will please lovers of the genre.
I reviewed a free advance copy of this book, the first in a planned series. Not at all bad for a first novel. I give it Three Stars.
