Review of "Unforeseeable" by Nancy Mehl

Review of Unforeseeable

by Nancy Mehl


Mystery, Romance, and Suspense Seamlessly Combined in a Mennonite Small-Town Setting 
Callie Hoffman knows she has a good life in Kingdom, Kansas. She's thrilled to be engaged to Levi Housler, the new pastor of Kingdom Mennonite Church, and she spends her days working with her friend and soon-to-be sister-in-law, Lizzie Housler, at Cora's Cafe. 
However, Callie's idyllic life is interrupted when a body is discovered on the road outside Kingdom and the deceased turns out to be a victim of a serial killer. As Washington County's new sheriff begins questioning Kingdom residents, Callie and the rest of the town are appalled at the prospect of a killer among them. The very reason Kingdom exists is to protect the people from the temptations and dangers of the outside world, but all the town founders' attempts to plan ahead couldn't prevent a threat like this. 
Unsettled at this unforeseen danger, Callie is concerned when it appears Levi knows more than he's telling. Desperate to find answers for herself, Callie never expected that she'd have to face some of her own past's skeletons. 
As Callie and the residents of Kingdom fear this danger for which they never planned, they must learn anew that only God knows the future and their trust must always lie in Him.

My Review:
Nancy Mehl has written another incredible murder mystery.... and managed to throw in the Old-Order Mennonites and romance!!   I received this book this week and had it finished within one day.  I was mad that I got sleepy and had to quit reading. I was doing my best to figure out "whodunit" but I was guessing all the way to the end.  I never did figure it out correctly and to me, that is the sign of a great mystery writer: keeping readers on their toes!  I truly enjoyed the quiet little town of Kingdom, Kansas, too, and wished I lived there too.  It helped that snow was plentiful in the story as I adore snow.
I received a copy of this book from the publishers, Bethany House, and the author, in exchange for my honest review.
