Summary

A sunny place for shady people.

Vacations can be murder, especially when you're Mercy Watts. She's trying to get away from it all, including her godmother's lawsuit and a certain situation with the mafia. So she heads to Roatan, Honduras, a place known for scuba diving and lawlessness. Mercy's on the island less than 24 hours when she discovers that she hasn't gotten away from anything. Her problems hitched a ride and increased tenfold. The deeper she dives, the more dangerous her vacation becomes. She must stop a murder or she'll be the next on the hit list.

Must add to you audio collection

Any additional comments?

I love this series, they are so funny and Mercy is just a great main character but it is the sidekicks or should I say her family and her dads friends that really make it enjoy able. She is a nurse but some how always gets dragged kicking and screaming into her dad investigations.

I have books on audio and have even gone as far as contacting the author asking for the books to be released on audio, as I would differently buy them too.

Give me more!

Still a hilarious story. Mercy goes on vacation and still ends up solving a crime. Working with the mafia is stressful, especially when you are hiding it from your mother. Her nursing skills are stretched to the limits in Roatan, Honduras. There are countless attempts on the life of her client’s life. The limited opiates, hurricane winds and rains, and other medical resources challenge even Mercy skills to keep her client alive.

Even on vacation, Mercy and her mother, causes men’s head to turn and accidents. Her godmother makes a radical change in her physical appearance and her aunt finds her happiness. The twins are wonderful and I was disappointed they did not get more story time.

There are so many funny characters in the story, her dad, uncle, her god mother (Dixie), mother, twins, step-cousin (Garrett) and aunt. These people add such color and enjoyment to the story. Aaron the Yahoo swilling, hot dog munching-dough boy is hysterical. My disappointment is most them are only given cameos each story. Her father is used as a scare tactic or to issue orders. Garrett is only there to tease Mercy for a few seconds.
Despite the small parts of Mercy’s inner circle, this is truly a funny Mercy story.

I am saving 5 stars for this series, for when Mercy's inner circle get bigger parts.

Pleading for (More) Mercy

If you could sum up Diver Down in three words, what would they be?

Kooky, Peril, Fun

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mercy is my favorite. She's relatable, smart, and imperfect. I love a character with flaws.

What about Lyssa Browne’s performance did you like?

Everything. She's the perfect voice for Mercy and the rest of her crazy clan.

Any additional comments?

I was very pleasantly surprised by the first novel and was glad to see that there were several more books in the series. The one thing I would point out as a downside to this book is that I don't love Aaron. I think I'm supposed to find him endearing but he's just annoying most of the time. Like a joke that went over so well the first time that the person keeps telling it over and over and over again. He was less irritating when Mercy wasn't fighting against him, but why do none of the people in her life recognize that no means no? She's an adult but no one treats her like one, and she certainly doesn't push the issue hard enough.

That said, I still loved the book and I have just one real question and that's this: Why isn't the rest of the series available on Audible?
