When her husband’s car is found abandoned and on fire—in the middle of a rainstorm—Eve Roth becomes the police’s number one suspect. After all, her husband was suspended from the University of Iowa for inappropriate conduct with a student, and who else but an atmospheric physicist could incinerate a car in a downpour? But Eve has no idea why her husband disappeared. She’s desperate to find him, both for herself and her beloved, disabled father-in-law.

Jonah Kendrick appears on their doorstep with a theory. He’s seen Eve’s husband, bound and bleeding in a barn. Claiming to be a psychic detective who dreams of the lost, Jonah has helped find missing people his entire life. He dreamed about a young woman trapped in the same barn months ago, and she’s still missing.

As a firm believer in the laws of nature, Eve rejects anything to do with psychics, but their investigations soon collide. As the temperature drops and Iowa turns to ice, Eve and Jonah race across the state to discover what happened to the people they’ve lost. But the truth is more deadly either of them expected, and the physicist and the psychic must learn to believe in each other if they want to escape this storm alive



“Mejia delivers her best work yet in this propulsive, intelligent page-turner…This indelible thriller has series potential.”

Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Clear your calendar and find a comfortable chair because you won’t want to stop once you start reading this character-driven thriller! It’s got it all: a twisty plot, original and complex characters, and an immersive setting that drops you into the center of the action. To Catch a Storm is absolutely riveting.”

Jess Lourey, Amazon Charts bestselling author of The Quarry Girls

“A lot of people may think of the Midwest as nothing but placid fields of corn and soybeans. Mindy Mejia’s stunning new thriller will change that. Set during a deadly ice storm, Mejia’s story rushes across the frozen Iowa landscape in a fury of fire and a hail of bullets. I finished To Catch A Storm in two sittings. If I didn’t have to sleep, I’d have done it in one. Swear to God, this book is absolutely unputdownable.

William Kent Krueger, New York Times bestselling author of This Tender Land and Fox Creek

“To Catch a Storm is a breathless tempest of a thriller. I was swept away by the nonstop action and utterly invested in Mindy Mejia’s rich, believable cast of characters. With deep compassion and insight, Mejia weaves seemingly contradictory worldviews (that of a physicist and psychic) into a captivating and timely story that hits all the right notes. An outstanding read.”

Nicole Baart, bestselling author of Everything We Didn’t Say and The Long Way Back

“A wonderful blend of science and the supernatural – physics and psychics specifically – with pulse-pounding action and twists upon twists that will have readers gasping while grasping for answers…the Thriller-verse is much better off when Mindy Mejia releases another compelling novel.”
