When I pick up one of Nancy Mehl's books, I don't want to put it down. Sometimes it takes me a few pages to get into the story, but once I'm in, I'm all in. Unforeseeable was no exception. Nancy has a way of making her characters very human. They have real fears, faults, weaknesses and strengths.
Once again the residents of Kingdom, who have tried so hard to insulate themselves from the world, find themselves violated by the world's evil. A body is found just outside Kingdom bringing fear and suspicion. Meanwhile, as Callie is preparing for her marriage to Levi, she finds herself confronting anger issues. She must delve into the causes and determine what to do about it. Can she really be a Mennonite pastor's wife? Levi has a secret, or two, or three... what does he know about the murders? Does he truly love her?
As is Mehl's style in the Road to Kingdom series, multiple storylines intersect and enhance each other as the reader, and the residents, try to figure out whodunit? I had it figured out this time, really I did. Until... a couple of chapters from the end... wham! Out comes a bit of information that I really didn't expect. Then, a few pages later, wham! Again! There were big surprises in the ending of this book. I hope it's not the end of The Road to Kingdom.
Read my reviews of Nancy's previous Road to Kingdom books, Inescapeable and Unbreakable.
