Inescapable & giveaway
To CELEBRATE the release of Inescapable, Nancy Mehl is giving away a handmade Mennonite Quilt giveaway! Then on 7/26 she'll be announcing the winner at a fun "Inescapable" Author Chat Party where she'll be chatting with readers and giving away fun prizes! Click for details and don’t miss the fun. http://litfusegroup.com/blogtours/13514299/inescapable Booklist says, "Nancy Mehl does a remarkable job of showcasing the lifestyle of the Mennonites against the backdrop of a modern mystery" in Inescapable.
Author: Nany Mehl
Publisher: Bethany House
Genre: Inspirational/romantic suspense
Lizzie Engel has been fired from her job, due to false accusations of embezzlement, and is convinced that someone is stalking her and sending her threatening notes. She does the only thing she knows to do, pay off all her bills in Kansas City, pack her things and move back home to the old order Mennonite community she’d fled from as an unwed mother.
Lizzie is confident she’ll be safe in Kingdom, Kansas, at least until she finds her footing and can leave again. There she meets handsome and kind Noah Housler and begins to think that things possibly might be fine.
But it soon becomes apparent that the threat Lizzie has fled from is now closer than ever. And Lizzie has only one place left to run—
INESCAPABLE is the first book in Ms. Mehl’s Road to Kingdom series. Readers will sympathize with Lizzie with all the troubles in her life, even though she makes some mistakes.
There was a lot of telling in this book. The characters were kind of flat. But once you got past that, the premise was good, and it was interesting to read about a very strict, old order Mennonite community, and a woman who is struggling to find herself. Fans of bonnet fiction will want to read this book. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. 4 stars. $14.99. 332 pages.
Nancy Mehl, the author of 12 books, received an ACFW Carol Award in 2009 for her novel For Whom the Wedding Bell Tolls. She has a background in social work and is a member of ACFW and RWA.
