"Kaely 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."

My Review and Response:
First I need to thank Nancy Mehl and Bethany House Publihers for sharing Mind Games with me. The book arrived about two weeks ago and I couldn't wait to start reading. I sat on the couch after dinner that evening and then closed the book because I couldn't read it. Don't misunderstand, it's not that I couldn't read it BUT that it was so well written and engaging I knew it would keep me up all night. I closed the book and counted down the days until my vacation, as difficult as this was.
On Christmas morning after the dishes were done and everyone was chose their mode of relaxation, I picked up Mind Games and got lost in a great book, engaging characters, suspenseful plot, and was on the edge of my seat with each turn of the page. It is such a good book, my family chuckled a few times because I was talking out loud (to the characters) or had sound effects as the suspense built. Have I told you how good this book is? It is.
My only negative is actually a HUGE positive, as I neared the end of the book there was a knot in my stomach. I held my finger on my page and looked to the cover and noticed something I missed when I first received the book...book ONE!! UGH! I CANNOT WAIT for book two. I told my daughter she needed to read the book next, her response is priceless, "I'll wait until the next one is out, I don't want to feel like you are right now.", then she smiled,
Nancy Mehl doesn't let her readers down. Her books are available in print, on Kindle, and on Audibles. Check them out. You can follow her via Amazon and through her website. All these are listed above. My favorite series before the "Kaely Quinn Profiler" series was Nancy Mehl's, "Road to Kindgom", series. Thankful she has so many well written and suspenseful books to chose from.
Take a moment to visit Nancy Mehl's site and check out her books,
