Barbour Publishing Simple Deceit: A Mennonite Community's Way of Life Is Threatened by Outsiders - eBook

In the sequel to Simple Secrets, watch how a raging current of deceit runs through the once peaceful Mennonite community of Harmony, Kansas. As soon as Gracie decides to stay in town and take freelance work involving a local land developer, the townspeople blame her for bringing on this change that could ruin life as they know it. Gracie's motives in romance with Sam, in helping an oppressed teenager, and in trying to make a living are all suddenly drawing suspicion. Should she leave or stay and fight for what she has come to love?

Simple Decent is the second book in a series of three. I thought the first book was awesome so couldnt wait to read the second one. I never imagined that this book would be even better than the first one. It is chock full of romance, intrigue and suspense with patches of humor throughout. I couldnt put it down and now look forward to reading the third one is the series.

This series was full of little mysteries so you didn't want to put it down until you finished with book #3. The town of Harmony seemed to look out for each other no matter which Church they were connected with. How wonderful if we could all love one another.

This is the second book in The Harmony Series. Gracie Temple is back in this exciting thriller. Gracie doesn't even make it to Harmony when she is pulled over by a police officer. He stated that her tail light was out and that is why she was pulled over. As the story unfolds we find out that this isn't exactly true. It only gets worse for Gracie when she spots a women leaving a baby on the door step of the church. A nasty note about Gracie shows up, claiming she is the real baby's mother. The action really heats up as the story unfolds. Why is someone out to harm Gracie? In this story Gracie will begin to doubt her feelings for Sam. Sweetie will continue to be in charge of mothering Gracie and praying that Gracie and Sam will be together. After all, weren't they meant to be? There are a number of characters in this book that play an important part. Nancy Mehl does an excellent job of keeping you guessing on who the culprit is. This is a book you won't want to miss.
I can't wait to read Simple choices. I want to know if Gracie and Sam get married!
