Echoes of Mercy by Kim Vogel Sawyer - Review
Caroline (Carrie) Lang and Ollie Moore are both working undercover at Dinsmore's World-Famous Chocolates Factory in Sinclair, Kansas. Carrie is investigating the hiring and treatment of children as she tries to find out about the suspicious death of a previous investigator assigned there. Ollie is actually Oliver Dinsmore and the heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty and his father wants him to find out everything he can about the business before he takes over. The Two have different views about child labor and without telling each other why they are really there, their suspicious about the other are rising.
I think the story started out kind of slow but it didn't take long to pick up speed and I was pouring full steam ahead into this book. Kim did a good job of pulling you in gradually and by the end you're telling yourself, "I'm getting close, I'm getting close, I'm getting close to figuring it out!" She also pulls at your heartstrings when you read about Caroline's childhood. This is another on of Kim's books that you will love if you like a little mystery along with some heart tugging issues going on.
