Fatal Frost By: Nancy Mehl

Back of the 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?

My Thoughts

If you have not read a Nancy Mehl novel you are in for a treat.  Fatal Frost has everything, love, and suspense with twist that will keep you turning pages into the wee hours of the night.  Mercy and Mark are a great blend but as the list of people who can't be trusted continues to mount, Mercy questions if there is anyone she can put her faith in to help her survive.  With chilling scenes so real you can feel the frost and Mehls unique ability to create a plot that keeps you guessing, this book should be at the top of your must read list.  Now the wait begins for the next installment..

Wild Montana Skies ( Montana Rescue #1) By: Susan May Warren

Back of the Book

Bestselling Author's New Series Delivers Romance and Adventure as an SAR Team Searches for Others--and Finds Themselves
Search and rescue pilot Kacey Fairing is home on leave in Mercy Falls, Montana, twelve years after she joined the military to escape the mistakes of her past. With a job waiting for her as the new lead pilot of Peak Rescue in Glacier National Park, Kacey hopes to reconnect with the now-teenage daughter she sees only between deployments. What she doesn't realize is that someone else is also back in town.

Ben King has been building his country music career since the day Kacey shut him out of her life. Now all of that's on hold when his injured father calls him home to help run Peak Rescue until he's fully recovered. It doesn't take long, though, to discover his father's ulterior motives as Kacey Fairing walks into the house and back into his heart.

With Mercy Falls in a state of emergency due to flash floods, Kacey and Ben are forced to work together to save lives. But when floodwaters turn personal, can they put aside the past to save their future?

My Thoughts

If you have been struggling to find a book series as good as The Christiansen series and couldn't, the search is over.  The story is fantastic but you MUST read the prequel, If Ever I Would Leave You or you will be lost from chapter two.  Kacey is a dynamic woman with strength, and a stubborn streak.  Ben is a kind, patient, well rounded character.  Twists and turns in the plot will entertain you as Kacey and Ben mend their hearts, and must work together to figure out what matters most.  Montana Rescue is shaping up to be a wonderful series.
