Known by His Fruits by Brigette Manie

by Brigette Manie  

Wilderness SAB Church needs a new roof and boiler. Pastor London Jones has her hands full, trying to raise the funds fast to do these things before winter sets in. Structural problems aren’t the only kind in Wilderness. London finds that the sin problem exists there as well. Grappling with these, she must also deal with a troublesome first elder, Nehemiah Garrett, and a taciturn head deacon, Shaun Farrington.

Both men want her out of Wilderness for different reasons. London may be small but she possesses a strength that is not easily shaken. She’s not about to let either of these men take her down.

While Shaun is a gruff and moody man, London sees glimpses of another person beneath his rough exterior. Against her will, she begins to see more than the ogre in him. Unknown to her, Shaun is having second thoughts, too. The feisty midget fascinates him.

When Nehemiah and the other elders try to take London down, Shaun stands against them. In doing so, he risks exposing a secret that both he and London have been guarding. London doesn’t want him taking that chance, but he won’t allow her to place her livelihood on the line to protect him. Can they save her job and shield his secret, or must they sacrifice one for the other? 

About the Author
A crash of the family’s television, as in ‘it died,’ created an interest in recreational reading for Brigette in her childhood years.  With the choice between books and boredom, books won hands down. Brigette went from mysteries to espionage and finally waded into romance in her teens.  She’s been stuck on the genre ever since.  She began penning her own stories in her stay-at-home-mom years. The blessing of her twenty-three (23) years of romance with her husband and her faith find their way into the lives of her characters and their relationships. She writes contemporary Christian romantic fiction about African American as well as mixed race couples.  Christian romantic suspense also intrigues Brigette, and she writes in that sub-genre as well.

Brigette entered the self-publishing arena in 2012 and now writes full time.  To date she has written over twenty-five novels and two inspirational/devotional works.  Her romantic works are divided into six series: 

Brigette has been blessed to have two #1 bestsellers on Amazon’s Kindle.   She likes hearing from readers.  You can talk with her via her website ( and sign up for her newsletter there as well.

From the Author
I love books and in particular romantic fiction. I've been a fan ever since I discovered the genre in my early teens. With the advent of print-on-demand and e-books, I grasped an opportunity to live a dream and published my first work in 2012. What began as a hobby back then has become a full-time joy for me. I write romance because I love happy endings, and it's such a fulfilling feeling to make relationships end well every time.

When I'm not writing, I'm spending time with family, walking, or reading a book. I love gospel and am partial to the song Break Every Chain because I feel like, in my life and in my writing journey, God has broken quite a few chains for me. Connect with me at I love talking to readers.
