About the Book:
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.
But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she’s being followed, and she’s certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she’s received. Realizing she’ll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.
Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she’ll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people–especially her old friend, Noah Housler–she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever.
No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run–to the Father whose love is inescapable.

I have to send out a huge thank you to Litfuse Publicity Group for putting this tour together and for allowing me to me on it. When I first got the info about the book I was really excited to read the book because this is my kind of genre and its been awhile since I have read it.
Nancy Mehl is a new to me author and I have to say that after reading this book I am excited to dip into her other books. If her other books are like this one then I am sure I will love them.
I have to begin by saying that I loved this book. There was so much action and suspense happening that I had a hard time to put the book down and over two nights reading this book I stayed up late reading until the wee hours. Everytime I thought I would put it down something would happen that left me saying just a little more.
Lizzie use to live the life the life of a Mennonite in Kansas but when she turned 18 she left the life she knew and vowed never to return.
Fast forward to five years later and Lizzie is living the life of a average person in todays world. Then before Lizzie knows it she is receiving threatening letters and she is being followed. She losses her job because she is being accused of stealing money. Lizzie is scared and does what she does best and runs. But, where will she go? Lizzie goes to the one place she vowed never to go back to and that is home.
When she goes back she doesn’t exactly get the home coming she was hoping for because her father tells her she isn’t welcomed. Lizzie is scared and doesn’t know what to do she thought if she went back that she would be okay but thankfully a kind friend steps in and helps her out with lodging and a job and I think Lizzie begins to feel that it will be okay but we all know that won’t happen because that woudn’t sell a book.
Is Lizzie prepared for what will come next and how will she handle it?
I loved the book, the storyline and the character. Sadly I have to wait until Spring 2013 for Unbreakable to come out. This is the second book in the series. I can’t wait.

One thought on “(Review & Blog Tour) Inescapable”
I have to say the cover of the book really caught my eye. I might have to pick this up for my sister-in-law Bobby, she really likes books set in Mennonite or Amish setting. Miss you, my magical friend!
