Fatal Frost

Nancy Mehl is the author of twenty-two books, including the Road To Kingdom and Finding Sanctuary series, and a 2015 finalist for RT Book Reviews' Reviewers' Choice Award.  Nancy writes from her home in Missouri, where she lives with her husband, Norman, and their puggle, Watson.  Visit with Nancy at to learn more.

Following in her absentee father's footsteps in a law enforcement career, U.S. Marshal Mercy Brennan has just recovered from being shot in the line of duty.  And, unbeknownst to her, her father's recent reappearance in her life has put her in the sights of St. Louis's most powerful gang.  Her boss assigns Deputy U.S. Marshal Mark St. Laurent - Mercy's ex-boyfriend - to get her out of town until her safety can be guaranteed.

Unaware of the extent her boss and Mark have been keeping her in the dark, it isn't until a freak ice storm strands them at a remote location and out of contact with the district office that the full severity of their situation becomes clear.  As the storm worsens, the forces of nature combine with a deadly enemy to put them in a great danger.  Can they survive long enough for help to arrive - if help is even coming at all?

My Thoughts:
Fatal Frost is the first book in Nancy Mehl's Defenders of Justice series.  I have known Nancy Mehl for and read her Mennonite-themed books.  I believe this is her first contemporary Romantic Suspense novel and she has skillfully written in this genre as well.  What struck me most about this novel was the depth of the characters.  I also appreciate that Nancy wrote a strong character (Mercy) and highlighted the way many struggle with their faith.  The story moved quickly with many twists and turns.  This was one of those books very hard to put down.  Nancy has started this new series off with one solid punch!  I can't wait to see what comes next.

Happy Reading Ya'll,
