The Madness of Mercury is a captivating novel that’s so much more than you’d expect. I’m not really into cozies and luckily for me, The Madness of Mercury really isn’t a cozy. Sure there’s an absence of romance and descriptive violence but it’s really a mainsteam mystery that’ll appeal to many more.
What I liked: I really enjoyed Julia’s story and seeing how she was able to overcome the adversity of having such a strong group with a vendetta against her all because she suggested a very common sense approach to an unfortunately all too typical event. The friendships and adversities in The Madness of Mercury are a realistic picture and were easy to lose myself in.
What I didn’t like: Only two things bothered me about The Madness of Mercury. First, I don’t know astrology so some of the Julia’s explanations were a bit lost on me. Second, I was so infuriated by how the Prophet’s Tabernacle gives Christians a bad name that it was sometimes hard to remember that this was fiction.
