Unconventional Leading Lady
Fire Storm by Nancy Mehl is a compulsive Christian contemporary thriller suspense that will keep you gripped and guessing. It is the second book in the Kaely Quinn Profiler series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Cold case crimes are resurrected in present day as there appears to be copycat crimes. Kaely Quinn tries to piece together the clues to solve the mystery. “Ghosts of the past whirled around her.” As her job dominates, there seems to be no time for family. “Your job is just something you do. Not who you are.” We must live a balanced life and make time for those who love us. We will never find our true worth in our jobs, we are worth so much more than that.
Family is important. Fractured families need to come together to heal the rifts of time. Forgiveness must be given even though some things feel too big to be forgiven. We must extend the hand of grace to those around us.
Guilt links to the theme of forgiveness. Guilt is a heavy burden to carry. “Feeling guilty never made me better. Never made me stronger.” Guilt weighs us down. It is not ours to carry. We need to release it to God and walk into our future.
Jealousy is a terrible master. It pollutes relationships and actions. It is toxic.
Sometimes we feel motivated to earn our earthly parents love. This is in contrast to the love of our heavenly Father which is freely given.
Nancy Mehl has created a wonderful eclectic mix of characters. There are some partnerships begun in book one. Loyalty amongst work colleagues is priceless. The leading lady is not your conventional heroine with her hang-ups and unusual way of solving crimes. But she is likable and realistic and the reader instantly warms to her.
Fire Storm was a thrilling read. I cannot wait to read much more in this marvellous Kaely Quinn series.
