REVIEW of Nancy Mehl's latest book ~ Win a free copy of FIRE STORM

Good morning, suspense readers, Mary Ellis here. Today I have the honor of reviewing FIRE STORM, the latest book by fellow Suspense Sister, Nancy Mehl. I am not exaggerating when I say I couldn't put this book about a serial arsonist down!

First my review: Few books that capture a reader’s attention on page one can maintain a strong pace throughout the story. But Fire Storm, book two in the Kaely Quinn Profiler series, did just that. I couldn’t stop turning pages until I’d finished the book in two sessions, which is rare for me. This author kept me guessing as to whodunit. Although I thought I’d figured it out several times, the ending completely surprised me. Plus, Nancy Mehl did a great job of portraying a less-than-ideal mother-daughter relationship, which happens too often in our hectic society. Mehl wove the Christian themes of forgiveness and grace expertly throughout her story, giving readers exactly what they’re looking for in Christian suspense. I highly recommend this book.


Here's a bit about the story: When FBI profiler Kaely Quinn’s brother asks for help caring for their unwell mother, Kaely finds herself headed to Darkwater, Nebraska. When she arrives, she learns the small town has been facing a series of fires. While the fire chief attributes them to the misuse of space heaters in the frigid winter, Kaely identifies a pattern that makes her suspect they were no accident. After yet another blaze devastates a local family, Kaely’s suspicions turn to certainty. Together with her partner from St. Louis, Noah Hunter, and her brother’s firefighter neighbor, Kaely and her team begin an investigation that swiftly leads them down a twisted path. When the truth is finally revealed, Kaely finds herself confronting a madman who is determined his last heinous act will be her death.


Nancy Mehl is the author of more than thirty books. She writes from her home in Missouri, where she lives with her husband, Norman, and their puggle, Watson. To learn more, visit NancyMehl.com.
