Harmony Series by Nancy Mehl #1book "Simple Secrets"

"Can Love Overcome Evil in the Mennonite town of Harmony, Kansas?"

Grace Temple never knew her Uncle Benjamin that lived in Harmony but now she finds he has left her his home and land there, Many years ago her father left the town and his brother behind when his relationship with a young woman was not looked favorably on..
Grace meets Sam soon after getting to the town and he offers friendship and to give her tour of the town.
Sam lives with his aunt and they have an orchard and huge home that Grace finds she would like to know more about.
As Grace meets all the townfolks she finds herself being pulled into their simple lifestyle though she has always thought herself a "city girl". She plans to settle the estate -sell and move back to the city but plans just dont always go the way we plan them...

Soon after arriving she finds a letter in her Uncle's Bible that tells of a death and burial and not in consecrated grounds, it explains why Benjamin lived so reclusive and would never leave his home...A Secret he wishes Grace to fix if she can...some secrets are not so simple as this one turns out to be.

I love a mystery and this book will have you wondering what is going to happen next and if Sam and Grace will have a relationship or not, many of the folks in town are suspicious of Grace and others love her and want her to stay in their midst....

You will enjoy reading as this story unfolds and we learn about the folks of Harmony -I was anxious to start book #2 and find out more about Grace and Sam and Harmony ....thanks for the mystery Nancy.
