Book Review- Inescapable

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Bethany House Publishers (July 1, 2012)
Nancy Mehl


Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Norman and their dog, Watson. She’s authored thirteen books and is currently at work on her newest series for Bethany House Publishing.

All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,” Nancy says. “It’s a part of me and of everything I think or do. God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”

She and her husband attend Believer’s Tabernacle in Wichita.


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.

My thoughts:
I loved this book.  After I read the description I was not sure if this was going to be a book for me or not.  Sometimes mysteries can be scarier then I enjoy, I get started in them and don't want to keep reading because I am scared of the outcome, but keep reading because the unknown on those is scary too.  This book was not so.  It was not so scary that I could not handle reading it with ease.  I liked how the whole book is written in Lizzie's point of view.  Many books I have read jumps from one character's thoughts to the next I liked being able to see it all from Lizzie's eyes knowing only what she knew and thought.  I must say the book kept me guess on who the3 bad guy was.  I made one guess at the being of the book, but then quickly changed my mind most of the book I was guessing at the answer and in the end realized my first guess was correct.  I really liked how the author made Lizzie such a likeable character.  It was very easy to picture how she was feeling and understand and relate to her fears and joys through out the book.   I give this book 5 out of 5 stars it is a must read!!  I was glad to see it is the first in the Road to Kingdom series meaning there will be more to come!!
