His Risk: The Amish of Hart County by [Gray, Shelley Shepard]

His Risk: The Amish of Hart County



New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray brings us another compelling suspense in her Amish of Hart County series, this time featuring an undercover English DEA agent who will do anything to protect the Amish girl he loves.

Calvin Fisher left the Amish community at fourteen and never looked back. Only his brother’s illness can bring him back to Hart County.  Now, as Calvin works to make amends, he meets Alice, a local nursery school teacher, and falls hard for her. But he has a secret that could threaten the happiness he’s finally found.

Alice shouldn’t like—or want—Calvin. He’s English, has a questionable past, and an even more questionable job. Still, she can’t help being intrigued. Though Calvin assures Alice that he’s worthy of her, she’s torn between surrendering to her growing feelings and steering clear of him.

When a sudden surge of criminal activity alarms the community and even targets Alice, Calvin fears that his double life has put everyone he loves at risk. As for Alice, she can’t help but wonder if the brave and honorable man she’s lost her heart to is far more dangerous than she could ever imagine


My thoughts:

This book had a different setting to it than so many other Amish books I have read.  It kind of took me just a little while to get used to not imagining the beautiful country side and farm life. I soon though got used to the different setting and angle of Shelly Shepard Gray's story.  I was drawn in to the danger, mystery and romance as His Risk. took us both into the Amish and the English world.  

I could imagine in my mind what the danger that could happen to both Alice and her friend so many times. I even felt like I wanted to warn them.  I'm glad that they both stood steadfast in their beliefs.

I was so proud of Calvin's brother for speaking up and letting Calvin know what he thought about his situation.   Sometimes we chose to remain silent and then wish we had been bolder when things get out of control.    

Even though this is a part of a series and you will want to know more about the characters when you finish,  I feel you can read it alone.  


This was a great, great read.
