Fatal Frost

GIVEAWAY

MEHL, NANCY
FATAL FROST

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 great danger. Can they survive long enough for help to arrive -- if help is even coming at all?

My Review:

Nancy Mehl like you've never read her before! And I'm lovin' it! I've always enjoyed the way this author spins a suspenseful tale but until Fatal Frost all those mysteries have involved quaint Old Order Mennonite towns and while I loved that aspect of series like Harmony, Road to Kingdom and Finding Sanctuary, I am over the moon about this new, hard-hitting law enforcement centred series.

Fatal Frost -- just the title sends a shiver up your spine, doesn't it? And brrr, curl up in front of a fire with a hot drink because the majority of this story takes place in the middle of a horrendous winter storm and Mehl's descriptive prose makes you feel like you're right there.

And be prepared for sinister chaos. These villains are e-v-i-l and sneaky and ruthless. I turned pages with breathless anticipation and read the last hundred in one gluttonous gulp. Great character dynamics and detailed backstory bring depth to both hero and heroine. Mercy is a walking contradiction. Even her name doesn't quite match her tough, stoic persona. She's built a wall around her heart and keeps everyone except childhood friend, Tally, at a distance.

She doesn't do relationships -- not even with a pet which is why her relationship with Mark came to a crashing halt. He said  'I love you' and she couldn't say it back. But she thought it and that was enough to send her running scared. Now they're together again facing danger at every turn. And neither of them have forgotten the intense emotions of their past. Seriously delicious -- and oh so torturous -- romance! As taut and tense as the relentless suspense.

An enthralling start to the Defenders of Justice series. Can't wait to read more!
