Series: 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.

vickiemichiganAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Danger, Mystery, and RomanceMarch 16, 2018vickiemichiganAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
I was sent this book by Litfuse Publicity and was not required to give a positive review.

Shelley has written a captivating story that grabs you right from the start and doesn't let go until the very end. A story that is full of love, faith, suspense and much, much more.
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Danger in Hart CountyMarch 14, 2018Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 0The books in Shelley Shepard Gray's Amish of Hart County have an interesting twist to the typical Amish love story in the form of an element of suspense. His Risk is built largely around danger and mystery with the return of a member of the community who left several years earlier and appears to bring danger with him when he returns out of concern for his brother's health.
The story is set in an Amish community, and most of the characters are obviously a part of that culture. An important thread throughout the story, though, takes place in the English world with plenty of suspense, danger, and questions. The story takes several turns, some particularly unexpected, keeping a good pace going in the interest level.
His Risk is part of a series, and there are a few references to characters and events from the earlier stories. However, the book works just fine as a stand-alone for anyone who has not read the others.
I recommend His Risk to fans of good Amish fiction. Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.
Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5His RiskMarch 13, 2018Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I have really enjoyed this series and was happy to learn more about Calvin Fisher in this novel. The reading of His Risk flowed very quickly for me, however, I did not connect with these characters very well. I liked Alice and I even liked Calvin, a person I was not fond of in a previous book. I am just a bit skeptical about certain events in the story actually working out the way they did. I can't say more than that or I will give away major spoilers in the book. But, overall, I have liked the series and I am intrigued by the teaser for the next book that appeared in the back of this one. I am definitely looking forward to jumping back into this series for book five.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Cheri5 Stars Out Of 5Great series - love each bookMarch 13, 2018CheriQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading His Risk by Shelley Shepherd Gray. This is the fourth in her "The Amish of Hart County" series. This series is not your typical Amish series. It has mystery, intrigue, suspense, romance and a whole lot more. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone; yet they each involve suspense and mystery in the storylines as well as real life romance. As with the first three, I couldn't put this book down when I started it. I wanted to read it start to finish without interruption. The author has a way of drawing in the reader within the first few pages and then keeping us involved and engaged throughout the entire book. I can't wait for the next one in the series they are that good. I would recommend reading all the books, but as I said, you can start with any of them as it won't ruin the storylines of the others. I received this book from the publisher as a complimentary copy but all opinions are my own. I wasn't required to write a review at all.
