Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This suspense novel really grabbed my attention!August 20, 2020Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Both of the main characters are extremely well developed. Noah is very by the book and does things the way he was trained to at Quantico. Kaely on the other hand has her own way of figuring out who the UNSUB is. She does start with the standard profiling techniques but then she moves into a different realm that none of the other agents understand.
I was fascinated by the back story of both Noah and Kaely. I enjoyed finding out both of their reasons for jointing the FBI.
The plot was incredible! There were a bunch of twists and turns that kept my interest. I was frantically trying to figure out who the murderer was throughout the book.
Perrianne4 Stars Out Of 5New Suspense Series from Nancy MehlApril 15, 2020PerrianneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5FBI Behavorial Analyst Kaely Quinn AKA Jessica Oliphant has been exposed as the daughter of a serial killer Ed Oliphant thanks to a pesky reporter. This new public revelation of her identity challenges her new partner, Special Agent Noah Hunter in ways neither of them dreamed of. Now a NEW serial killer is on the loose and has Kaely in his crosshairs.
I enjoy Nancy Mehls suspense and it's obvious that she does her homework on the law enforcement end. She does an excellent job of portraying the cat and mouse game of a serial killer. The pace of the novel is excellent, which gives the reader time to digest what just happened before going on to the next incident. What I do find annoying are all of the abbreviations for different areas of upper law enforcement.
Kaely herself is a very likable character and is very intelligent, although her methods are rather unusual. The other agents on her team make up a very cohesive group that is well matched to each persons expertise. I love that there is a strong faith thread which becomes stronger towards the end. With her troubled past, Kaelys faith is going to be a very important factor to getting her through this new threat.

Gretchen Garrison5 Stars Out Of 5The Profiler - understanding how humans think!July 8, 2019Gretchen GarrisonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was not sure if I would enjoy a book about a profiler, but I think that Nancy Mehl did a phenomenal job writing this book. There was so much about it that was unexpected. The character development was especially well done. I am looking forward to reading more in this series!
IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Apt Title for a Great ThrillerMarch 1, 2019IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This review was written for Mind Games (Kaely Quinn Profiler Book #1) - eBook.Jessica Oliphant is the daughter of a convicted serial killer. Now thirty-four, she's FBI profiler Kaely Quinn, dedicated to solving murder cases, especially serial killer cases. Her unorthodox methods have earned her supporters, opponents, and the attention of the wrong kind of peoplelike a persistent journalist. And a serial killer.
Kaely becomes part of the next investigation when the journalist receives an anonymous poem signalling a series of murders, and ending in Kaely's apparent suicide. The first body is discovered soon after the note is delivered. Now the race is on to identify the killer before Kaelyor anyone close to herdies.
Mind Games is an apt title for a great thriller. We know from the get-go that the killer is playing games with Kaely. The challenge is to work out who I identified several possible suspects (one of whom was later murdered, so I was 100% wrong on that one!).
Kaely is an intriguing heroine. She's intelligent and likeable, and with a strong Christian faith. But she's also a damaged woman who suffers nightmares and finds it impossible to allow anyone to get close to her. She's estranged from her family, both respected and reviled at work as an object of curious fascination.
The other characters are also strongthey have to be, because Kaley is such a strong character. Noah and Kaley had some interesting conversations about faith. Yes, Mind Games is definitely Christian fiction, as there is a strong faith thread and some insightful lines about the nature of faith, and the nature of evil.
This is the first of the Kaely Quinn Profiler series. I've read several of Nancy Mehl's earlier novels, but this is her best yet. I'll be looking forward to reading more about Kaely, Noah, and their colleagues. Recommended for fans of Christian thrillers from authors like Terri Blackstock and Carrie Stuart Parks.
