About Inescapable

Page-Turning Romantic Suspense Set Against the Backdrop of a Small Mennonite Town
Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, her family, and her faith with plans never to return. Five years later, Lizzie finds she'll have to run again. False accusations at her job, a stalker, and a string of anonymous threatening letters have left her with no other options. This time, however, her escape is back to Kingdom, her hometown.
As Lizzie becomes reacquainted with Kingdom, she realizes she may not have left her Mennonite roots and her faith as firmly in the past as she thought.
She draws on the support of Noah Housler, an old friend, as she hides out and attempts to plan her next steps.
When it becomes painfully clear that the danger has followed Lizzie to Kingdom, suspicions and tensions run high, and she no longer knows who to trust. With her life and the lives of those she loves at risk, Lizzie will have to run one last time--to a Father whose love is inescapable.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
All I can say is, "This is my kind of book in the extreme!"  This book has it all: romance, mystery, humor, and a strong Christian message.  The characters are extremely well-developed, and every aspect of the story makes perfect sense.  I honestly don't think I have a negative thing to say about this book or author.

The Christian message is very strong in this book, and it is woven so expertly into the fabric of the story.  This book touched my heart as I read about how God restored everything in Lizzie's life (no spoilers--you have to read it yourself), and my faith is God was strengthened.  I do not often find myself in tears as I get to the end of a book, but this one certainly did.

The romance in the book was not "put-on"; it was real.  Charity was the sweetest little girl in the world, and her faith was absolutely precious.  When Lizzie had to make a choice, I was not sure what choice she would make, and I am so glad she made the right one.

The mystery in this book was absolutely perfect.  It took me a while to figure everything out, and I often found myself continuing to the next chapter when I should have been doing something else.  I had to know what the outcome was.

I was so happy to discover that there will be a sequel to this book.  I definitely want to read "the next chapter."  These are some of the most delightful characters I have "met" in a while, and I could read several more volumes about them.  I recommend this book highly to anyone who likes inspirational romances.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
