I first discovered Shelley Shepard Gray's books in 2012. I enjoyed her writing then and continue to do so with each new story of hers I read. Her Secret, book one of
The Amish of Hart County series, is Shelley's latest release. It had me reading start to finish in one day! More about Shelley Shepard Gray and Her Secret here.
In Her Secret, Hannah Hilty and her family have recently moved to a different town and state. It is supposed to be a new beginning but she can't even hardly venture out her front door. Isaac Troyer tries hard to be a good neighbor but doesn't know how to react to Hannah's seemingly odd ways. Hannah's family has become even more dysfunctional since leaving Ohio. She is also sure that the reason they moved will always haunt her.
Shelley says she "wanted to write stories about regular, likable people..." with her Amish Novels. The main characters, Hannah and Isaac, are definitely two people who are regular and likable. Well, at least Hannah was doing her best to be regular. With each new page I could only hope for a romance to blossom between them. I think after reading Her Secret you may question how you will face your next obstacle in life. Will you hide your head in the sand, face it head on, or somewhere in between? I think this story also points out that every day is a gift from God and He wants to help you face your next hardship. I enjoyed this Romantic Suspense novel and recommend it. l was provided a complimentary review copy of this book. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
