CFBA Tour for Inescapable by Nancy Mehl

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
Nancy Mehl


Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Norman and their dog, Watson. She’s authored thirteen books and is currently at work on her newest series for Bethany House Publishing.

All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,” Nancy says. “It’s a part of me and of everything I think or do. God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”

She and her husband attend Believer’s Tabernacle in Wichita.


Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.

But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she's being followed, and she's certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she's received. Realizing she'll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.

Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she'll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people--especially her old friend, Noah Housler--she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever.

No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run--to the Father whose love is inescapable.

MY REVIEW-I have been a fan of Nancy's books ever since I read my first one, Simple Secrets. One reason is the whole Mennonite thing. I have a hard time finding Mennonite books I like reading but this one kept me intrigued and satisfied at the same time. Her new one is no different. Escape to the quiet town of Kingdom and find mystery, adventure, and even some romance:)

This town of Kingdom is no stranger if you have read her previous books and I very much liked that. I felt like I was back in the town of Harmony from her first series. These books are not the normal Mennonite boring book but they have a lot in them and quite interesting as well. I immediately fell for Lizzie's little girl, Charity, part of which might be the shared names:) And don't get me started on Noah! Wow! But you can't forget her boyfriend that left her and all of a sudden shows back up. This is a book I finished in one day and was waiting for more. Can't wait for the next one in the series, Unbreakable!

I received a copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation.
