Mind Games – Nancy Mehl | A Book Review

Mind Games - Nancy Mehl

Title: Mind Games

Author: Nancy Mehl

Genre: Suspense

About the book: It’s the first novel in a series about an FBI profiler named Kaely Quinn who learns a serial killer is after her.

Book has been provided courtesy of Baker Publishing Group and Graf-Martin Communications.

First impressions: I like the title, cover, and premise. There’s a prologue, which grabbed my attention.

Characters: Kaely’s a likeable character. Noah Hunter, the lead agent on the case, is also easy to like. Nobody’s perfect either. Everyone had a flaw or a past.


“You feel called to do what you do.”

Writing: The book is a little more than 300 pages with short chapters. While the novel delves into some serious issues, the dialogue offers some lighter moments.

I loved how there isn’t really a lot of romance. That said, perhaps the first book plants the seeds for a romantic relationship in the rest of the series.

I have a greater appreciation for red herrings. Many of them threw me off. I also found the bits about behavioural analysis and reading people quite interesting. Maybe it’s just me, but the book reminded me of the TV show Criminal Minds.

Final thoughts: Even though I figured out the killer before the big reveal, I still enjoyed trying to solve the mystery.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the story. I’m interested to see what happens in the next novel.

Check out Mind Games if you’re a fan of suspenseful FBI procedurals.
