About this Book
Mercy Brennan followed in her father’s footsteps in a law enforcement career, but she has no interest in any other connection to him. A U.S. Marshal in St. Louis, Missouri, she’s assigned to a joint task force with the St. Louis PD that puts her back into contact with her father and in the sights of St. Louis’s most powerful gang.
When the gang has reason to believe Mercy has possession of some highly sensitive and incriminating information, her boss assigns Mark St. Laurent–a Deputy U.S. Marshal and Mercy’s ex-boyfriend–to get her out of town until they can guarantee her safety.
Initially unaware of the danger she’s in and uncomfortable working with Mark, Mercy’s frustration escalates when she discovers the extent her boss and Mark have been keeping her in the dark. It isn’t until a freak ice storm hits, stranding 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 closing in to put their lives at imminent risk. Can they survive long enough for help to arrive–if help is even coming at all?
About the Author
Nancy Mehl lives in Festus, Missouri, with her husband Norman, and her very active puggle, Watson. She’s authored fifteen books and is currently at work on a new romantic suspense 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.”

From the opening pages the author grabbed my attention. Her characters were strong and passionate. I loved watching the interactions between the three main characters, Mercy, Mark, and Tally. I especially appreciated the relationship between Tally and Mercy.
The action was intense. The author created an atmosphere that kept you guessing who could be trusted and who couldn’t. I will say early on I had guessed the identity of the mole. I kept wanting to scream at them “Can’t you see it!?!?”
The author also did a great job developing the characters in this story. Watching them grow and come to terms with difficult situations was touching. Great read!
Fans of Mehl’s Finding Sanctuary Series will enjoy this one even more. I felt like this first book of her new series raised the bar in her writing. If you are new to Mehl’s writing, but enjoy fast paced and intense action with just a little romance then you should enjoy this story.
