After successfully carrying out a 5 million dollar heist with her crew, Veronica returned to her hideout alone. There, she encountered Harry Rawlings, her husband who everyone thought had died in a van explosion while stealing $2,000,000 from crime boss Jamal Manning, but had actually faked his own death. Then, he started the conversation:

Harry: Yeah. It was meant to be simple. Why couldn't you just sell the book to Jamal and leave it at that, Ronnie?

What was Harry implying when he said "it" was simple?

"It" refers to the initial plan that he and Veronica decided. So basically in this conversation with Veronica, he(Harry Rawlings) is expressing his disappointment.

By saying "Why couldn't you just sell the book to Jamal and leave it at that, Ronnie?" he's trying to say that Veronica could have avoided the complications and dangers that arise from the heist by simply sticking to the original plan of dealing with Jamal directly.
