Publisher's Description

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray begins a new series—The Amish of Hart County—with this suspenseful tale of a young Amish woman who is forced to move to a new town to escape a threatening stalker.

After a stalker went too far, Hannah Hilty and her family had no choice but to leave the bustling Amish community where she grew up. Now she’s getting a fresh start in Hart County, Kentucky…if only she wasn’t too scared to take it. Hannah has become afraid to trust anyone—even Isaac, the friendly Amish man who lives next door. She wonders if she'll ever return to the trusting, easy-going woman she once was.  

For Isaac Troyer, the beautiful girl he teasingly called “The Recluse” confuses him like no other. When he learns of her past, he knows he's misjudged her. However, he also understands the importance of being grateful for God’s gifts, and wonders if they will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, they realize that there’s always more to someone than meets the eye.

Just as Hannah is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding a new love, more secrets are revealed and tragedy strikes. Now Hannah must decide if she should run again or dare to fight for the future she has found in Hart County.

    Amish Romantic Suspense? I didnt know that was even a thing, but this book has me hooked.

    Where other Amish fiction keeps me at a slight distance from the characters, Isaac Troyer charmed me and I found myself becoming invested in Hannah Hilty and her struggle to regain a normal life after being victimized by a stalker.

    Heartwarming with a good dash of pearl-clenching danger, Shelley Shepard Gray has set the bar for Amish Inspirational Romantic Suspense fiction.

    Amish plus mystery all tied up in a wonderful book. It was hard to put it down. I fell in love with the characters who seemed so real. I felt like part of their family. The Inspirational thread and the great writing also helped to make this a fantastic read. I can't wait to read her next book in this series when it is released.

    Gray writes on a topic not usually seen with Amish fiction.

    I wavered back and forth when I saw this book and the cover. I'm not much of a suspense person, but I really like Shelley Shepard Gray and have read many books written by her. My curiousity won over because I just had to see how Gray wrote in a little different of a genre than normal. I have always related her with Amish fiction, but never really with suspenseful books. The cover was enough to pique my interest because it looked a little dark and mysterious to me, unlike a lot of her covers that are brighter in color.

    Much of the book actually fit the style of her other writings, which I was pleased to see. To be honest, I was expecting for it to take the whole book for me to figure out who the stalker was. Gray decided to mix things up and go ahead and reveal who was stalking Hannah's family. She has to go through her days looking over her shoulder and feeling completely exposed and unsafe.

    I will admit that I wasn't able to read this book at night just because of the whole stalker incident, but it was a story that stayed in my head for quite some time after I completed the book.

    It still amazes me how the Amish don't like for the English to intervene, even in situations that have the potential to be dangerous. Hannah's family deals with the threat, but finally do have to get the authorities involved. However, they can't escape this man that is determined to have his way with her. If he can't do that, then he wants her to think he can at any moment. Either way, she lives in fear and can't seem to outrun him.

    I enjoyed Gray taking on a new topic within Amish fiction. This is one topic that I haven't seen within the Amish fiction stories. However, I'm sure the Amish have to deal with harassment in their own communities, just as we do.

    This review was written for Her Secret: The Amish of Hart County - eBook.
    "How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog - it's here a little while, then it's gone."

    - James 4:14

    The cover of Her Secret, Shelley Shepard Gray's latest Amish fiction story already gives us a glimpse into what we can expect. The first book in The Amish of Hart County wraps you in with the suspense of a stalker and what his selfish acts can do to an Amish girl and her family.

    With her usual flare of writing a story that weaves in romance, message and Amish culture, Shelley Shepard Gray have once again "hit the ball out of the park" with Her Secret. She even added in a suspenseful twist that carries through the whole book. A topic that you don't see much in Amish fiction, the topic of stalkers provides the catalyst to what can be a thrilling suspense that can either have you looking over your should constantly or lack substance to instill in you the dangers of one. Her Secret is one of that sticks with you. In Her Secret, we were made known of the stalker from the get go. His ominous note created tension for Hannah's family, as well as devastated Hannah's sense of security. As a reader, we can feel the angst and the fear that Hannah's stalker caused in her, and that makes for a great start. As we're looking over Hannah's shoulder for her, we can't help but speculate everything that happens, as well as every character that appears. Suspenseful it is.

    In terms of message, I'm still in awe with how much the author can put in. We're not only talking about fear or countering evil, but also guilt and displacement. There's also protection and finding God's blessings in each day. If you've never read Shelley Shepard Gray, you'll find her writing easy to read, but filled with profound insight and great story connections. Her characters will get a reaction out of you - you really can't help yourself. In all, a great start to a series that I can't wait to continue on.

    Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.

    Her Secret is about an ordinary Amish girl living with her family going about her life until one day she meets a man that will not take no for an answer. And so begins his manipulations and his fearful control over her well-being including that of her family as well.

    Hannah's entire family up and moves from Ohio to Kentucky after Hannah's stalker takes things a little too far with his photographs. Trying to come out of her shell that fear has locked her into, she begins to timidly make new friends in her new hometown. As she begins to open up and live again she is faced with problems at home with her brother and sister and their resentment towards her for the move. Her parents are no help as they drop another bombshell on the family that only increases the distance between each of them till all five seem to be living separate lives.

    That is really what stood out to me in this novel. That this seemingly close-knit family let secrets keep them apart. And how once the secrets were no longer kept in hiding, understanding, love, and grace came pouring in. Forgiveness played a strong role as well.

    This was a little bit of a creepy read for me as Hannah was always looking over her shoulder and too many times let fear paralyze her. I enjoyed watching her and her family come to terms not only with opening up to each other, but becoming part of their new community and learning the lesson that we sometimes need other people to help us carry our burdens.

    I received a copy of the book for free through Litfuse. I was not required to post a positive review and views and opinions expressed are my own.
