Fire Storm by Nancy Mehl
When FBI profiler Kaely Quinn’s mother is diagnosed with cancer, Kaely takes time off work to go to Dark Water, Nebraska, to help her brother care for their mother. Upon her arrival, she learns of a series of fires in the small town, attributed by the fire chief to misuse of space heaters in the frigid winter. But Kaely is skeptical, and a search for a pattern in the locations of the fires bolsters her suspicions.
I found this second book in the Kaely Quinn series to be just as compelling and intriguing as the first.
Kaely is almost my ideal of a perfect heroine. I like the fact that Nancy Mehl portrays her as a ‘real’ person. Her flaws, her quirks, her unique character traits. All these are what make her such a great character profiler.
In the beginning of this book, she’s not on an FBI case. She went to stay with her mother and help care for her during her cancer. When she arrives in this small town, she immediately notices a pattern occurring in the so-called coincidental fires that had been happening. When she brings this to the attention of several law enforcement officers, things begin to escalate.
Next, she and Noah are asked by the FBI to do some investigating for the take down of a drug ring.
This book is just full of excitement, mystery, and danger.
I can’t wait to read more, and eagerly look forward to the release of the next one in this series!
