SIMPLE SECRETS, a new mystery novel by NANCY MEHL

Book #1 in The Harmony Series
320 pages, softcover from Barbour.

Gracie Temple loves city life and her job as a graphic designer. But when a reclusive uncle dies and leaves her his house in a quiet Kansas Mennonite community, she inherits a dark legacy, strange neighbors---and farmer Sam Goodrich. Will Gracie be enticed by the small town's charm---or intimidated by its deadly secrets? 
"Simple Secrets" is well written with depth and detail, fast paced and a page turner. This small Mennonite town is warm, caring, has a truckload of secrets, but this would be a wonderful town to live in, grow up in and raise a family. The characters are also warm, caring and will pull you into the story and feel their heartbreak, their joys, their triumphs and hurt. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you enjoy Mennonite stories..."  April Renn - My Book Addiction and More
Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Norman, her son, Danny, and her very active puggle, Watson. She runs a HUD program for the city of Wichita and is president of a volunteer organization, Wichita Homebound Outreach. She’s authored nine books and is currently at work on two new series for Barbour Publishing.

Nancy’s novels have all been set in Kansas. “I love Kansas,” she says. “We’re a lot more interesting than people think. Using Kansas in my novels is easy. We have everything - big cities, small towns, rolling hills, rich farmland, culture, history, odd locations (look up The Garden of Eden in Lucas, Kansas!) and a friendly hometown feeling.  We also enjoy all four seasons. This allows me to set my stories in different weather conditions. Winter is my favorite season. Throw lots of snow in a story and your plot can suddenly go in an interesting direction.” 

God is number one in Nancy's life. “I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”
