Inspirational Mystery

Mystery, Romance, and Suspense Seamlessly Combined in a Mennonite Small-Town Setting

Callie Hoffman knows she has a good life in Kingdom, Kansas. She's thrilled to be engaged to Levi Housler, the new pastor of Kingdom Mennonite Church, and she spends her days working with her friend and soon-to-be sister-in-law, Lizzie Housler, at Cora's Cafe.

However, Callie's idyllic life is interrupted when a body is discovered on the road outside Kingdom and the deceased turns out to be a victim of a serial killer. As Washington County's new sheriff begins questioning Kingdom residents, Callie and the rest of the town are appalled at the prospect of a killer among them. The very reason Kingdom exists is to protect the people from the temptations and dangers of the outside world, but all the town founders' attempts to plan ahead couldn't prevent a threat like this.

Unsettled at this unforeseen danger, Callie is concerned when it appears Levi knows more than he's telling. Desperate to find answers for herself, Callie never expected that she'd have to face some of her own past's skeletons.

As Callie and the residents of Kingdom fear this danger for which they never planned, they must learn anew that only God knows the future and their trust must always lie in Him.

Re: Unforeseeable

This book sounds so intriguing and I am pulled into it just in the brief writings that Nancy has left us with. I would love to win a copy of Unforeseeable. Thank you for the chance!

Can't wait to read your new book. I have read the first two books
following Lizzie in her town of Kingdom. I love the suspense in your
novels because I just can't them down.
(
Rebecca Bell 10:00am August 30, 2013)

I love to read mysteries in unusual settings or time periods, because we can learn so much while enjoying a good suspense or mystery read. I am sure this will be a splendid read. Dark Crossings was a suspense book about three Amish women, that was excellent.
(
Clare O'Beara 10:03am August 30, 2013)

I can't wait to read the third book in this series! I love
Nancy's writing and how she gives twists and turns along the

I'm a recent fan of "bonnet books." I would like to win the contest for Nancy's book in order to discover a new author (to me). I've been an avid reader of romance since the mid -1960's, and I love to discover new books.

Wow, Congrats on your new book: UNFORESEEABLE. Yahoo, I am
from Kansas too. I grew up on Gunsmoke and lived 65 miles
from Dodge City, KS and boot hill. I looked for a Kingdom KS
but did not find one. Here are the Towns for Washington
County. Washington County is made up of twelve
cities/villages; Barnes, Clifton, Greenleaf, Haddam,
Hanover, Hollenberg, Linn, Mahaska, Morrowville, Palmer,
Vining, and Washington, which is the county seat. There are
twenty-five (25) townships in the 30 miles by 30 miles that
comprise the county. We have a nice town Kingman is a city
in and the county seat of Kingman County, Kansas located 45
miles west of Wichita, KS. Also, we have nice Amish people
in Haven, KS outside of Hutchinson, KS. Thanks for the great
Kansas book and I would truly love to win it and read it
this summer. Thank You very much. Cecilia CECE

I love reading about the Mennonites, and having you "cross the line" a little, so to speak, is going to make reading this book a new pleasure to look forward to this Fall!! The story line sounds exciting, and I'm sure it'll turn out to be as hot inside as the cover!! Congratulations!!!
