Simple Deceit ~ Book Review

Title:  Simple Deceit
Subtitle:  A Mennonite Community's Way of Life Is Threatened by Outsiders

Harmony Mennonite Series Book Two

About the book:

Harmony, Kansas, has grown on Gracie Temple, including its Mennonite residents, a teen girl in desperate need of a friend, and farmer Sam Goodrich. Gracie decides to stay and take on freelance graphic work, but when her new client is a developer intent on bringing tourism to the area, Gracie is blamed for the idea and someone makes it look like she burned the barn of a resident who refused to sell to the developer. When even Sam seems to question Gracie’s actions, will she run back to the city or stay and fight for all she has come to love?

My thoughts:
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 with the Sheriff. I highly recommend this book.

You can purchase this at:

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book for my Kindle from NetGalley. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.

Even though I am ANGRY.............

I have to admit that even though I am a bit angry about the contest that I mentioned in an earlier post (you can read HERE) I do have to say that M2Cmart is a great company. I don't have to agree with what anyone does, ever. But that does not make them any less of who they are or what they have made themselves into. You know, my Grandma used to have a saying "Boy this world would be in a world of hurt if we all liked the same things!" And she is right. 

I do have to say that I don't think that rules should get changed mid-game because I don't think that is fair but I have also learned that life is not always fair and I think that you will all agree with me.

I have asked for you all to help me out in the contest that I am in, that ends on June 22nd at 11:00pm but negative comments towards the company aren't helping me. lol No matter how mad I am about it all only GOOD comments will help, imagine that.

I do have to say that I have dealt with M2Cmart before and I do like the company and I do recommend them so make sure you hop over and check them out and see for yourself.

And right now if you LIKE them on Facebook you can get a $10 coupon code. If you go to their website there is a message that comes up and tells you and you can click on it. Make sure you do that!!

 And you know what, tell them I sent you!

And don't forget to stop over and leave a comment on my wall post for the microwave too!!

Please and Thank YOU!!

I am beyond ANGRY!!!

I need everyone's help! I was contacted by a company, M2Cmart to spread the word about one of their featured products on Facebook. That was easy peasy! And also with this whoever does this and then gets the most comments on their wall post will WIN the featured product. So I get ask some friends to help me get comments and it is working I am up to 160 comments.

THEN, I receive a message from M2Cmart this morning telling me that 95% of those comments do not count. WTH??? Are you serious? Here is a snippet of what they said: 

So far, you're leading the campaign with more than 160 comments! That's quite impressive & amazing! Yet having a second look, we find that most of the comments, up to 95%, is made by five friends of yours, and we feel regret that those repeative posts doesn't count.
On the other hand, there's one fan of ours is sharing with different freinds, which means each comment is written by different writers, and she's doing even better.
We apologize for not letting you know before, & the rules of campaign may be misleading.
Considering the effort you've done, we're offering you a $20 coupon to shop for anything at our website, solar light, coffee press, air pot, etc.
Hope you don't mind.

Now, no where in the rules does it say anything about that.

Here are the rules:

Visit our Facebook Shop & Share the Featured Product to Get It Free!

A. Fan who shares one of our SHOP’s featured products or leaves comments, gets a $10 coupon.
B. Fan who gets at least 10 comments & likes on his(her) wall post of our featured products, gets a $20 coupon.
C. Fan who gets the most comments & likes may have the featured product for free!!

I think that I have been wronged! What do you think? Will you help me out? We have been talking about their featured product, a microwave. So I am asking that everyone help me out and let's show them that I can get the comments needed to win.

Here is the featured product:

Galanz 0.7 cu. ft.700W Stainless Steel Front Countertop Microwave Oven with 6 Auto Cooking/One Touch Menu

 Now, will you all hop over to my Facebook and "LIKE" my post and leave me a comment on the post?
 I hate asking but they have me angry now!! And if you need a vote for something let me know and I am there!! I am going to go over and open my facebook up so that nobody has to request to be a friend right now, this is how angry I am.

Today we ripped off a blogger known as blogger and blog named PT-LawMom. It is not her first trip to this rodeo, we've victimized her once before, in August 2008. Since it's long we will do it in parts. She does not say where she ripped it. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go.

Magnets that can KILL your KIDS and PETS

Have you ever saw any of these super strong magnets? Well, if you have and you have them around your house or you know anyone who has any of them, make sure you hop on over to San Diego MOMfia and read the incredible post about the danger of these.

Not only are these extremely dangerous to your children they are also dangerous to your pets. Take the San Diego MOMfia post into consideration before you buy these for your kids.

I have also found them called "Sticky Balls" and I found this description on Amazon.com for a 3/8" magnet that looks like a little flat battery: Neodymium-iron-boron is a fancy way to say super strong magnets. A single 1" magnet has more than 10 lbs of pull; two of them face-to-face are virtually inseparable. Smaller ones make phantastic door catches that can pull a twisted cabinet door straight and hold it closed. Use them to hold knockout bars to lathes, chuck keys to drill presses and blade wrenches to table saws. Rare earth magnets have innumerable applications on jigs, fixtures and hardware as well. Handle with care! Separated magnets can snap back and pinch skin.

Please beware of these!!
