Review: Mind Games by Nancy Mehl

Mind GamesI am so impressed with this book! I thought that the premise for Mind Games sounded interesting, however they way the author crafted the storyline of this novel made it far exceed my expectations. It is really unlike any other book I have read.

I liked the main characters, Kaely and Noah, and found that they worked well together. I was also intrigued by various side characters in the story.

I absolutely loved the way that Kaely’s mind worked. It was impressive to see how her train of thought progressed through the various options to come to the correct conclusion.

The suspense and tension of trying to figure out who the mastermind was behind the killings really propelled the story and lead to a superb ending that has me anxiously awaiting book two in the series!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Mind GamesKaely Quinn’s talents as an FBI behavior analyst are impossible to ignore, no matter how unorthodox her methods. But when a reporter outs her as the daughter of an infamous serial killer, she’s demoted to field agent and transferred to St. Louis.

When the same reporter who ruined her career claims to have received an anonymous poem predicting a string of murders, ending with Kaely’s, the reporter’s ulterior motives bring his claim into question. But when a body is found that fits the poem’s predictions, the threat is undeniable, and the FBI sends Special Agent Noah Hunter to St. Louis.

Initially resentful of the assignment, Noah is surprised at how quickly his respect for Kaely grows, despite her oddities. But with a brazen serial killer who breaks all the normal patterns on the loose, Noah and Kaely are tested to their limits to catch the murderer before anyone else–including Kaely herself–is killed.

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 especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”

    Once again, Brittney, we parallel each other on book thoughts! This one exceeded my expectations way beyond the “normal” suspense fiction. Nancy had me hooked from the get-go and glued right to the very ending. Like my review says, I love it when an authors stumps me and keeps me guessing !

    Check out my review on Goodreads 🙂 I “liked” yours!

      Ha! I just went over and read your review on Goodreads! We really do enjoy the same books, don’t we? I have read some of Nancy Mehl’s books that have connections to the Mennonites. I enjoyed them, however, this is my favorite of hers, so far.
