Review: Unforeseeable

Unforeseeable by Nancy Mehl is the third book in the Road to Kingdom series. They are all Mennonite suspense stories set in the little, secluded town of Kingdom. I thought this book was the best one in the series. It wasn't slow paced like the first two, and I just thought the mystery was harder to figure out than the others. Made for an enjoyable read. :-)

Callie Hoffman is engaged to Levi Housler, the pastor of the Mennonite church. She feels very unworthy to be a preacher's wife and finds out pretty quickly in the story the reason for all her insecurities - her father's verbal abuse. As she travels down the road of figuring out who she really is and what she really believes, she worries if Levi will still want to marry her.

Meanwhile some women have been found dead outside Kingdom and the police think it is the same serial killer from twenty years ago. Why is he killing again? And who will he strike next? When one of the deaths is one of Kingdom's very own, all the people become scared and nervous. Will they found the killer before he hurts more people?

The ending of Callie's story was very satisfying. It was perfect, and I have to say a little unexpected! Most authors don't do that in these types of stories so I found it quite interesting. If you like Amish/Mennonite stories with some mystery, you will definitely like this book and the series! :-)

I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
