Lilacs, Lavender, and Lies
As Mary Classen Baxter shops for the last of her spring plants at Franz Farms, she gets to know the Mennonite owner, widower Gabriel Franz, quite well. As they spend time together, Mary begins to wonder if the two of them could have a future together. When Gabriel’s nursery and fields are vandalized and items start to go missing, Mary is determined to help her new friend and solve the crimes.
When Elizabeth stumbles across a Bible with the name Franz written in the front of it at a moving sale, she recognizes the Bible as a family heirloom. Could it be one of the items taken from Gabriel’s farm? How did it end up in another family’s sale? And what is the significance of the handwritten poem tucked in the back of the Bible? The Classen sisters soon find themselves embroiled in yet another mystery, one that will lead them to unexpected discoveries.
