Blog Tour for Inescapable by Nancy Mehl @NancyMehl @litfuse

Nancy Mehl
Romantic Suspense

Back of the book:

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.

About the author:

Nancy Mehl, the author of 12 books, received an ACFW Carol Award in 2009 for her novel For Whom the Wedding Bell Tolls. She has a background in social work and is a member of ACFW and RWA. She writes from her home in Wichita, Kansas, where she lives with her husband, Norman, and their puggle, Watson. Visit her website at

My thoughts:

I am a Kansas girl so I was tickled to read the back cover and find out that this story was set in my beloved homeland. Right from the beginning I was biased towards this book. Probably because I lived the majority of my life there and because the author lives there too, it was easy for me to picture the setting.

The narrative begins in Kansas City where Lizzie has just lost her job and been accused of embezzlement. There is someone stalking her. She has seen him watching her apartment from across the street on numerous occasions. Mysterious and threatening notes keep appearing on her door.

In order to escape this crazed person she decides to leave Kansas City and return home. Home is in Kingdom, Kansas, an Old Order Mennonite community. The hitch in the plan is that she left Kingdom five years before as an eighteen year old unwed mother. She wasn’t expecting an overly warm welcome from her father, and she didn’t get it.

She settles in with a family friend and life seems to be turning out better than she expected. That is until she realizes that the danger has followed her home to Kingdom.

I enjoyed reading Nancy’s novel. I would not personally consider it in the suspense category. I thought it was more of a mystery type. Regardless of that, the story is intriguing and the characters are endearing (well most of them are). I think you’ll be glad you picked this one up.
