From the Back:My Reflections:
Nancy Mehl pens another fast and furious romantic suspense with her newest novel, Fatal Frost. Join Mercy Brennan, strong-willed and tenacious U.S. Deputy. Her mission is to fight against crime in St. Louis, where criminals are abundant, and gangs and drugs are winning the battle of good and evil.
Mercy tries to live on the fringes, she is a self-proclaimed loner, even in her closest relationships we see this bent towards extreme independence and self-preservation. Mercy always has an agenda and is super keen on keeping her life organized and streamlined, these skills along with her tough as nails attitude keep her going as she faces the worst criminals in the city of St. Louis.
We soon find that Mercy has some serious hurdles to overcome, mainly with her anger and resentment regarding her father, Nick. There are always two sides to every story, and this one is no exception. Nancy Mehl is so talented at penning her characters so that they are real to life and have a commanding presence in her novels. I felt very connected and was so disappointed when the story came to a close.
Another characteristic I love about this author is her ability to keep her readers entertained and have descriptive statistics and scenarios throughout the novels. This makes the reader really feel immersed in another life and diverse professions. I will never be a U.S. Deputy but was able to experience the thrills, danger and high throttle adrenaline these professionals face on a daily basis. Makes my dull farm existence seem a little less dreary!
If you are looking for a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and entertained this Christmas season, I would highly recommend Fatal Frost. Although you may want to pick up another good book as well as this one will most likely be completed sooner than you anticipate.
