A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Free Fall by Nancy Mehl: Book Review

  **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

The closer she comes to the truth, the deadlier her chase gets.

FBI behavioral analyst Alex Donovan and her colleague Logan Hart have been called upon to write a profile for a missing woman, but a little digging quickly turns up more disappearances in Virginia with the same physical description.

Alex is in a race against the clock to rescue the missing victims, so when the UNSUB makes demands of her in exchange for information, Alex takes the bait. But when her life is put in jeopardy, Logan must do whatever it takes to track them down before time runs out.

Alex works to think one step ahead of the suspect, but the more Logan and the BAU learn about the serial kidnapper, the more they fear Alex may not make it out alive.

Free Fall is the third book in The Quantico Files series. While I think it could be enjoyed as a standalone as well, I think readers will definitely get the most out of the story and best understand the team dynamics by reading the series in order. 

This book was quite intriguing. I read a lot of Christian romantic suspense books, and at times it really does feel like I've read it all... this isn't necessarily a bad thing. If they're done well, I find I still enjoy them even if some stories seem a bit more familiar... but this one truly was unlike anything else. Dealing with a serial killer and a creepy theme park theme, this was very unique and kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next. And it certainly kept me thoroughly creeped out as well! I don't want to give too much away, but it was definitely a fascinating story. 

The Christian content in this book was very prominent, more so than I think we see in a lot of books in the genre. The characters are constantly praying, quoting scripture and relying on their faith in God to get them through. There were a few moments where it seemed that the characters believed that because they had faith, everything would work at, which isn't biblically accurate, so that threw me off a bit, but not enough to take away my enjoyment of the overall story. There were some more 'supernatural' elements of faith peppered in throughout as well. I don't always like that, but this one was done well within the story.

Overall, I found it to an suspense are going td one that fans of Christian suspense are going to want to check out for themselves.
