Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband, Norman, and her son, Danny. She’s authored nine books and is currently at work on her newest series. All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul.
The second book in the Harmony series has everything Mehl's fans could ask for: romance, mystery, and family secrets. The characters are well rounded without being weighed down with boring details. The small-town values are a big part of the story. Mehl is a wonderful author who writes from the heart and it is apparent throughout the book.
I think it [Simple Deceit] picks up nicely and continues the story [of Simple Secrets] quite well. It answers some questions from before, but at the end does leave us with a few more. I do hope there will be another book in the series because I really grew to like the characters in the story and how I've seen them grow and progress over the past two novels.
I will definitely be recommending this novel for those who have read Simple Secrets, and will recommend the entire series for anyone who loves this genre in general.
A lot goes on in this book and it's an enjoyable, well paced novel. I've read a lot of Christian fiction through the years and this is certainly one of the better ones. I enjoy the way it shows the love of God, less preachy, more simply being revealed throughout the book. Pleasant, joyful read.
This book has a bit of everything! Romance, danger, abandoned baby, humor, murder, blizzards, and faith!! I enjoyed this book, being set in a quiet Mennonite Community in Kansas. I haven't read the first book in this series, but even though there were reference to the first book, I was able to read along. Throughout the book there seems to be on going fear to turn their problems over to God.
Once you start reading this book, it is hard to put down. You are drawn to the quiet KS town of Harmony....which sounds delightful! Most of the people here look out for one another! When something happens, even without phones, everyone seems to know about it!
I loved the way everyone gravitated to food...whether at Mary's or Sweeties...this book will make you hungry! I am now looking forward to the next book in this series...answers to questions! I would recommend this read to all!
This book has everything readers of Christian mysteries could want, and more. You'll find generous doses of drama, danger, humor, faith and love, plus fictional characters who seem like familiar friends. The blizzards that plague Harmony provide an ideal ambience for the writer's cozy, pleasing story-telling style. Each book I read in every series becomes my favorite.
I love this story with the mix of faith, mystery, and romance!
This is a fast paced story of faith,deceit,secrets,love and a communtiy.While this is a Christian it is not preachy but allow each to grasp their own faith.A wonderful sequel to "Simple Secrets".
While this is the second book in a series I feel like it could easily be read as a stand alone work, the author provides enough background that you feel perfectly at ease in the tiny town of Harmony...Anyone who enjoys a nice mystery woven together with a bit of romance set in a nice little town full of interesting characters really should check this series out.
Well seeing on how I totally missed the first book in this series I loved this book. Gracie is such a loveable character and there is a bit of mystery in the small town of Harmony, Kansas. The people of this town are so close knit and most of them look out for each other and I love the fact that meal times are such a big thing. This book kept me wanting to read more and more and not wanting to quit. I was totally surprised by the ending...I highly recommend this book.
