Publisher's Description

Mennonite Romantic Suspense Sure to Thrill Readers

Gentle and unassuming Hope Kauffman has never been one to question or try to make changes. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to the betrothal her father arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie Miller.

Despite Hope's and other Kingdom residents' attempts to maintain the status quo, changes have already begun to stir in the small Mennonite town. The handsome and charismatic Jonathon Wiese is the leader of the move to reform, and when one of Kingdom's own is threatened by a mysterious outsider, Jonathon is one of the first to push for the town to arm itself. Hope's fiance, Ebbie, is at the forefront of those demanding the town stay true to its traditions of nonviolence.

When strange incidents around town result in outright attacks on several townspeople, Hope can't help but question what she's always been taught. As the town that's always stood so strong together is torn apart at the seams, Hope is caught between opposing sides, both represented by those she has come to care for. With tensions high and lives endangered by an unknown threat, Hope fears Kingdom can never survive in one piece.

Author Bio

Nancy Mehl is the author of fifteen books and received the ACFW Mystery Book of the Year Award in 2009. She has a background in social work and is a member of ACFW and RWA. She writes from her home in Wichita, Kansas where she lives with her husband, Norman, and their Puggle, Watson. Visit her website at www.nancymehl.com.

Publishers Weekly

Mehl continues her Road to Kingdom series, about a Mennonite community in Kansas, with a tale of a testing of faith. The action gets going quickly when young Mennonite Hope Kauffman is run off the road in her buggy, one in a string of incidents of harassment targeting religious people and churches in the area. As trouble escalates, the Mennonite community is torn between adherents of the religion’s teaching of nonviolence and advocates of a more vigorous response that includes armed patrols. Hope lives the dilemma, torn between her gentle fiancé Ebbie and attractive Jonathon Wiese, who organizes the patrols. Mehl has strengths: her premise is solid, she delivers on romantic tension and the physical attraction that can only be implied in Christian fiction, and the ending is satisfactory. Her dialogue could use work (“You must have some unresolved issues about Jonathon,” one of Hope’s Mennonite friends says), too many coincidences mar the suspense, and the eating-good-food narrative convention of Amish and Mennonite novels is overdone. But those who like gentle reads will enjoy this suspenseful variation on that theme. (Feb.) 2012 Reed Business Information

    Someone is burning the churches in neighboring towns and now they have started running the residents of Kingdom, Kansas off the road ending in the death of one of the elderly men. Hope Kauffman was also run off the road and hurt then after she unhitched Daisy and started down the road for home the red truck turned around and was headed straight at her. About that time Jonathon Wiese came along in his truck and stopped the red truck from hitting her, the mystery man turned around and sped off. Eventually the red truck started appearing in Kingdom, Lizzy and Noah's house was set on fire and then the church a short time later, almost killing Pastor Mendenhall.

    Why are these people suddenly terrorizing the residents of Kingdom? Another thing, how do they even know about Kingdom and since the only road into town is being watched, how are they getting in to cause the havoc? Another question is why does the sheriff seem to dislike them so much and seem to have no interest in investigating any of the incidents?

    Wow, Nancy started this book out with a bang, from the beginning you are trying to figure out who would want to terrorize the peaceful Mennonites and why. She also shares how people in the same church can come up with different ways to handle the problem and they both seem to be right. I really enjoyed that because as I've gotten older I do try to look at both sides of a problem and when I'm trying to help loved ones who are arguing I try to get them to see the other persons side. Of course all that seems to do is to make the one I'm talking to think that I'm on the other one's side, even though I say I can understand where 'you' are coming from but I know where 'they' are coming from also. I've been both a mother and a daughter so I'm trying to see both sides, they don't buy it, lol.

    Lizzie Engel is on the run again, she ran away from her home in Kingdom, Kansas, a Mennonite community, five years ago to get away from he mean father and the people that she thought looked down on her for having a child out of wedlock, Charity, by an Englishman.

    She has been living in Kansas City since she ran without even telling her mother where she was, she had no communication with anyone from Kingdom all this time. Now all of a sudden she finds herself fired for stealing money she didn't steal, a man in a red baseball cap is stalking her, and she's getting threatening notes mailed to her. Lizzie has no choice but to leave Kansas City with Charity and not tell anyone, again, where she is going, but where can she go? The only place is back to Kingdom in hopes that her parents will let her move back in at least temporarily.

    Once Lizzie gets to Kingdom her mother is more than willing to let her move back in but her father refuses to open his home to Lizzie and Charity. She manages to find a job at the local restaurant and can live upstairs but it doesn't take long before she sees her stalker has found her. After the man in the red cap is found dead she finds another note, this time no postage stamp on it. Now she's even more frightened, who could be following her, is she still wanted in Kansas City for theft, who could have killed the man in the red cap, could her father have killed him trying, for once, to do something 'right' for Lizzie, could Noah, her friend since childhood and keeps telling her he'll protect her no matter what have done it, could Clay, Charity's father who suddenly shows up in Kingdom again and offers to support Charity even if Lizzie doesn't want him in their life be the one or is it just a coincidence these things are happening now?

    Good mystery Nancy, kept me guessing, I thought I had an idea but wasn't sure and then I kept going back and forth. If you like mysteries you will like this one. I'm looking forward to reading the next two books in the series. I read this one on my Kindle but I have the second one, "Unbreakable", in paperback, so I'm starting it now.

    This review was written for Unbreakable, Road to Kingdom Series #2.
    This is Nancy Mehl's second installment in this Mennonite series, but I have to admit that I did not enjoy this book as much as I had hoped. Don't get me wrong--she still had the suspense, the romance, and the wonderful celebration of the Mennonite faith. But I was not nearly as drawn into this book as I was the first.

    Like the first, it began rather slowly, but the romance story and the unsettling suspense did capture my attention. I was not as interested in Hope as I had been Lizzie (glad Lizzie was still in this one), but I did wonder whom she would marry. All I will say is that Hope did not disappoint me. No spoilers as to the romance outcome.

    One thing I had appreciated in the first book was the way in which the Christian faith had been woven so expertly into the story. For me, that was not nearly as strong in this book. Yes, the Christian message was there, but I didn't feel it was as focused.

    Not to be completely critical, I will say it followed the normal form of the first book. It started off slowly and it escalated to a high within the last portion of the book. The charm of the Mennonite community were expertly captured in this fine book, but I much prefer the first book's story to this one. Just my opinion.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    The (fictional) isolated Conservative Mennonite town of Kingdom, Kansas, faces division as the residents lives and peace are threatened. Why would anyone want to run a buggy off the road or burn a church? Nonviolent Mennonites shouldn't desire to fight back, but some may choose to abandon their long-held practice of nonresistance. What would Christ have them do?

    Hope Kauffman, who manages the local quilt shop, is caught in the middle of the struggle. Not only does she sustain physical injuries, her emotional and spiritual life suffers too. Her fiancé Ebbie Miller is willing to release her, and Jonathon Wiese wants to court her, but she cares for both of them.

    Since I'm Mennonite, the theme explored in this novel is important to me. I appreciate the realistic presentation of the issues. In addition, the suspense made for a good story.

    I like this quote from p. 271: "We pray for protection, and then we try to defend our own lives and possessions. As if we don't believe God will answer our prayers." So true.

    This review was written for Unbreakable, Road to Kingdom Series #2.
    "Unbreakable" the second book in the Road to Kingdom series by Nancy Mehl is a novel that covers the dilemma of fighting back, or waiting for God. Kingdom, a Kansas town of primarily Mennonites is being attacked by a group of people who hate Christians. The attacks go beyond the Mennonite community, but Mehl focuses on Kingdom, Kansas. Jonathan is a Mennonite who is in favor of defending the town and trying to protect the people. Ebbie is an elder who is in favor of praying and letting God protect the town. The two men lead battles between the sides as the attacks go on. They also battle it out for the heart of Hope, the main character. Hope has a deep quiet love for Ebbie, but he doesn't really excite her much. Jonathan makes her heart go pitter patter and puts the excitement in her. She sees both sides of the defense issue as well.

    I really liked this book. The characters, though Mennonite, were not portrayed as too naive or somehow slow. The writing was good and the characters were well developed. I have not read book one, and had no trouble following book 2. I wished that the author had taken a little time at the beginning to lead the readers into what the town was like before the attacks; it seemed to hit the dilemma too fast. However, if I had read book one, that probably would not have been a problem. I received this book from the Book Club Network.
