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.

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.

Cynthia5 Stars Out Of 5WonderfulApril 17, 2018CynthiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I won a copy of this book from Goodreads giveaways, I was required to give a favorable review. This is a wonderful story of how you can change your life for the better. Calvin was raised in the Amish faith but left in his early teens but made a lot of bad choices and got in with the wrong people. He was given the chance redeem himself by working undercover for the DEA, but also he was able to get closer to his brother again. His brother Mark went back to the Amish community and is now married but illness brings Calvin back to try to help his brother. Across the street Alice, a preschool teacher in the Amish community is fascinated by Calvin and they become friends. But she doesn't know all of his past. Things happen that brings them closer and also helps bring a lot into her world. I enjoyed how you read to such much the Amish but you forget they are human as the rest and make bad decisions about their families, like with happened with Alice's friend Irene's childhood, and Calvin & Marks. I recommend this a wonderful read in this series.
dianaFlowW Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Amish Suspense!April 11, 2018dianaFlowW Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4While I enjoyed His Risk because it was so unique for an Amish novel, I wrestled with a few inconsistencies having to do with this group of people. First of all, the Amish characters never seemed to attend church, there were no stringent rules placed on them by overly strict bishops, and the Amish heroines didn't seem to feel much compunction about falling for rough Englishers (non-Amish men.) The hero smoked and toted a gun and it didn't bother the pristine heroine, Alice? She DID try to steer clear of the man, but not hardly. lol And Irene...not at all!
Even though I felt the story a bit unrealistic, I love Ms. Gray's books and was able to overlook these things. The plot was exciting, face-paced, and unpredictable, the characters engaging, and the novel most definitely a gripping page-turner!
vics495485 Stars Out Of 5Amish with a twist!March 25, 2018vics49548Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I don't know how she does it, but author Shelley Shepard Gray just keeps putting out great books. This one is a dandy!
An Amish story with a twist, His Risk is full of suspense and danger. Add in a sweet romance that can't be and you have a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Written realistically, expect that as you read. There is talk of smoking, drugs, and other things that go with the criminal element but Gray wrote all this very tastefully. Without it, the book wouldn't be as genuine and it didn't bother me in the least.
The characters were well developed and genuine. There was much regret about the past that included rejection and loneliness, but we see that nobody is beyond redemption when God is allowed to work in lives.
If you enjoy Amish fiction that is different than the norm, I highly recommend this book.

Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5Series keeps getting better.March 23, 2018Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was hooked right from the start with author Gray's newest in her Amish of Hart County series. Calvin Fisher, once a troubled Amish teen, is back to his hometown only now he is English. Coming back for his brother due to a family emergency, Calvin is concerned about bringing his troubles with him. Trying to turn his life around and now working for the DEA as an undercover agent in a gang, he has a lot on his plate. And he especially has no time for thoughts of a normal life with a wife. However, when he meets Alice, his protective instincts get the better of him.
Alice has a past as well and instead of forgetting, wants to learn from it and move on. Alice and her best friend Irene are both trying to learn from their shared circumstances and move on. What most surprised me about this book was that I was very interested in not only the hero Calvin, but also West the bad guy: especially his and Irene's story.
It was nice getting to meet up with Mark and Waneta again, even though it came with scary health concerns. I recommend this whole series with enough romance and suspense to keep you turning pages quickly.
