Review: Fatal Frost by Nancy Mehl


Fatal Frost by Nancy Mehl

When U.S. Marshal Mercy Brennan is assigned to a joint task force with the St. Louis PD, she’s forced back into contact with her father and into the sights of a notorious gang. Mercy’s boss assigns her colleague—and ex-boyfriend— Mark to get her safely out of town. But when an ice storm hits and the enemy closes in, can backup reach them in time?

My Review:

Fatal Frost starts off with adrenaline pumping action for the characters.   This story was an intense read for me with a sense of foreboding throughout.  The whole situation with the drug lords infiltrating a city seemed too close to true life.  Not knowing who to trust, as it seemed anyone could be bought was a bit nerve wracking as well.  Mercy, a U.S. Marshal, is assigned along with her best friend Tally and ex-boyfriend Mark to a case to protect a witness.  However there are so many secrets and so much suspicious activity going on I, like Mercy was just about leery of everyone.  Throw in a freak ice and snow storm and you have a thriller to curl up with to make a couple of winter nights go faster.

This is one of those stories where it felt like I was feeling the cold along with Mercy.  There is a thread of tension and underlying romantic feelings still between Mercy and Mark.  The author really put this team through the ringer and I was unsure the good guys were going to save the day.  Definitely set some time aside for this fast action read. 

I received a copy for free from the publisher.  I was not required to post a positive review and all the views expressed are my own.
