From the Author:

The story behind Deadly Secret:
 
When a pharmaceutical mix-up causes undue distress on Evalena Davidson's patient Sophie Locke. The German Baptist nurse does some research and learns about counterfeit drugs in the system. Is that what's happening at her hospital?
 
Evalena is untrained in criminal tracking, but she must identify a killer before someone else dies. She puts her own life at risk to uncover the deadly secret.
 
Those who enjoy Kim Vogel Sawyer's stories featuring the Mennonite life style in Kansas may well appreciate Deadly Secret set in fictitious towns of the Ohio Valley in 2008. A mystery mixed with a hint of the Anabaptist culture and romantic elements.
 
A Word about Amish/Mennonite History
 
Amish novels revolve around a religious group who live without many modern conveniences. Mennonite stories usually feature conservative groups, and some are hard to distinguish from the Amish. Others use electricity and motor vehicles, but keep some traditions including the separate religious uniformity of dress. These Anabaptist groups originated in the 1600s under the leadership of Menno Simon from Switzerland. The Amish broke off the main Mennonite group and are the most conservative and old fashioned of these groups.
 
The Old German Baptist group, featured in Tales From The Ohio Valley, have a different background. They are a newer group formed in Germany in the 1700s by Alexander Mack. Mack's group was formed of Bible believing men and women with a mixture of Pietistic and Anabaptist thinking. The Old German Baptist group is a conservative part of The Brethren groups. (Descendents of the Mack movement.) While they are often mistaken for Amish or Mennonite, those in the German Baptist community who have technological needs use computers, and some even use the Internet.
 
Two things German Baptists share with Amish and Mennonites is the love of community and a distinctive manner of dress. Many in the German Baptist culture also have a fear that outsiders will bring in new ideas and water down their valued traditions.
 
In the novel Deadly Secret, Evalena Davidson keeps her eye on the rearview mirror, so to speak, to make sure she is not offending other members of her German Baptist community when she has to go against tradition. But it's a matter of life or death.
 
Tales from the Ohio Valley feature interactions between Old Order Anabaptist characters and mainstream Christians because this is the world in which the author lives.
