Inescapable - A Review

(Road to Kingdom Book #1)

Nancy Mehl

A Review

A very light mystery wrapped in a central Kansas Mennonite Community, Unescapable is more about finding grace in a community known for its legalism. Written in the first person, Charity runs home after being accused of a crime she did not commit, but once there, she and her family need to learn about the freedom that comes from experiencing God's grace for the first time. Though at times the story seems to happen too fast (e.g. falling in love; Charity's mother's food tastes at Cora's Corner Cafe, having never eaten there before; etc.), the lightness of the story was a pleasant surprise even for a cozy mystery. Whether I read other books in the series remains to be seen, but I enjoyed my first trip to Kingdom, KS.  

This review is based on a free electronic copy of the book provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are mine alone.
