Get ready to take a spin from Mennonites to law enforcement with the first book in Nancy Mehl’s all new series, Fatal Frost. I sure hope you enjoy winter because you are going to feel the chill as you read this book!
If you have been reading Nancy’s books for a while, you likely know her for writing about the Amish and Mennonites. This new series takes a complete, and welcomed, turn as we read about a U.S. Marshal.
Mercy Brennan wants nothing to do with her father–the one whose footsteps she followed into a law enforcement career. Now, unknown to her, her life is in jeopardy as she is now in the sights of St. Louis's most powerful gang.
Mercy is assigned to work with Mark St. Laurent, who just happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Mark’s job is to get Mercy out of town until they are sure it is safe for her again.
At the beginning of the story Mercy isn’t happy with the working conditions she is in. Imagine her frustration when she finds out that her boss and ex-boyfriend have been keeping her in the dark.
Through a lot of action and suspense Mehl weaves together a story that kept me turning the pages. One particular scene stayed with me through the story and even now as I think about it. The way Nancy described the storm and the freezing weather, I still have chills thinking about it.
I was quickly drawn into this story, both by the suspense elements and the descriptive storyline. I could picture the barn and the house. I felt the snow blowing around me and the chill it produced.
After reading this first installment in Mehl’s Defenders of Justice series, I can’t wait to read the next one. I have very high expectations for it!
