Book Review - Mercy - Rebecca Lim

Mercy ′wakes′ on a school bus bound for Paradise, a small town where everyone knows everyone else′s business -- or thinks they do. But they will never guess the secret Mercy is hiding ....
As an angel exiled from heaven and doomed to return repeatedly to Earth, Mercy is never sure whose life and body she will share each time. And her mind is filled with the desperate pleas of her beloved, Luc, who can only approach her in her dreams.
In Paradise, Mercy meets Ryan, whose sister was kidnapped two years ago and is now presumed dead. When another girl disappears, Mercy and Ryan know they must act before time runs out. But a host of angels are out for Mercy′s blood and they won′t rest until they find her and punish her -- for a crime she doesn′t remember committing ...

I have heard a lot of hype about this book so I was a bit hestitant to read it. Yesterday morning I picked it up as I needed something to read and I finished it last night. It was well written and the story was great. Mercy is an angel who has committed a terrible deed she doesn't remember. Her punishment is to take over the bodies and lives of random people who need her. She has lost all her memories of her former angel self and doesn't know what she is. Only she is starting to remember. In this book, Mercy is Carmen, a sorprano singer in a choir who gets caught up in a case everyone tells her to leave alone. I really enjoyed this book and it was easy to read. I like the idea that her memories come back to her slowly as we grow closer to the character.
A very good read and I can't wait to read Exile, the 2nd book in the series.
