Bethany House Review-Deadly Echoes by Nancy Mehl

Hope y'all are having a good day!! I was able to study with a fellow homeschooler yesterday and she introduced me to blueberry soda...yum!! Was so great to get out but that's why this is a little later then I expected.



Sarah Miller has finally found her sister Hannah and she's thrilled about it...which is why when Deputy Paul Gleason steps into her classroom she knows something is really wrong. When she finds out Hannah has been murdered not unlike her parents when the sisters were separated all those years ago, Sarah needs to know more.  Though she was shocked by her sister's death, Sarah decides that nothing can happen to Hannah's now teenage little girl. Struggling with taking care of her grieving niece, getting Hannah's affairs in order, finding her killer, and avoiding threats, she can use all the physical and mental support she can get. Support Paul is willing to give her if she trusts him. With everything uncertain and an unhappy teenager her only family left, who can she trust?  Will she live to find out who has it in for her family?

Paul Gleason can't believe the amount of pain Sarah Miller has had to endure in her 26 years of life. If it wasn't bad enough her parents were murdered within sight of her and her older sister Hannah, 20 years later, Hannah is gone too. Though he knows he shouldn't get involved, he can't help but feel that he should help support her as she searches for the person that could possibly become her killer. As the threats begin to mount,  Paul can't help but feel she needs his protection. As things begin to twist and tangle, who is there to help them...and who is there to help his own agenda? 

*I loved*

Many people have talked about Nancy Drew novels. You know, those apparently amazing mysteries every girl loved? Yeah...I've never read those. *Hangs head in shame* You know what though? As I read this Nancy Mehl I know this book must be pretty close to a Nancy Drew. If I'm right, boy do I need to start reading some Nancy Drews!! Wow!! This action packed book had me from the start. The beginning was the chilling opening every good mystery needs. Then Paul enters the scene and I'm already bursting with excitement because the protagonists' love stories are ALWAYS my favorite. Paul was caring, considerate, trust worthy, cautious, and still good looking which, in my book (no pun intended!) makes him perfect. Sarah was scared as well she should have been but that didn't stop her from being strong and taking responsibility for her niece. I didn't suspect the real killer until right before he was revealed, so to me that is a BIG plus. Throughout the book, Nancy injected the perfect amount of faith and Christian viewpoints without being pushy or overbearing about it. The cover...ooooh the cover!! It's fabulous! It gives us a glimpse of what the characters looked like while still keeping with the suspense that an Irene Hannon book might have. 
*You may not like*

If there's anything someone may not like about this book it's that it's told from one person's point of view throughout the whole book. I thought it was fine but some thoughts from Paul would have been nice but others may not feel the same way.

*My Rating*

I give Deadly Echoes...

 5 stars!
*My overall thoughts*

Deadly Echoes by Nancy Mehl is a fantastic Romantic Suspense book filled with twists, turns, and plenty of special scenes to keep you sustained and looking for more until the very end!

*About the Author*


Nancy Mehl lives in Festus, Missouri with her husband Norman and her very active puggle, Watson. She’s authored over twenty-one books and is currently at work on her newest series for Bethany House Publishing. 

All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,” Nancy says. “God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”


Nancy was very gracious to send me a copy of her book to review. In fact, she even included a bookmark and signed the book with a special message and verse and I know I'll be reading more of her books in the future!

Thanks for checking it out!

Happy Reading,
