Yvette K.4 Stars Out Of 5Amish Romantic Suspense, 4th in seriesSeptember 8, 2018Yvette K.Quality: 5Value: 5This unlikely romance brings Calvin Fisher, younger brother of Mark Fisher from His Guilt (book 2 in the series, so better read in order but not strictly necessary), back to Hart County where he soon becomes acquainted with the Amish woman housesitting across the street from Mark and Neeta's home, Alice Yoder. Suspicion and danger follow both Calvin and Alice, as he attempts to navigate his status as a gang member while an undercover DEA agent and the growing pull of his Amish roots and her mundane life as a primary school teacher is threatened by her new association with Calvin as well as escalating personal attacks.
In keeping with the series, this is not your usual Amish fiction story, and the subplot with gang leader West adds unexpected depth and nuance to his character and the novel as a whole. While not necessarily the most engaging of the novels in this series, it is still an interesting and entertaining work by one of the best writers of Amish fiction.
Recommended for those who enjoy suspense with sweet romance and Amish fiction with a bit of an edge.

His Risk is another enjoyable read in The Amish of Hart County series by Shelley Shepard Gray. This is Calvin story. Calvin Fisher has been away from the Amish community for 14 years, only returning because his brother is ill and needs him. But then he meets Alice, and his life now has meaning, like never before. But will his dangerous past keep Calvin from ever having someone in his life like Alice?
I think His Risk is my favorite of this series so far. I liked Calvin from the start, because even though he had this bad-boy attitude, you can still see his deep down roots of being raised in an Amish home. As Calvins life begins to unfold, it seems he so far in over his head that there is no hope for him. And I kept thinking, how will Ms. Gray unwind this story and come to a likeable ending. But as always, this author keeps you on the edge of your seat, makes you think you know where the story is going, and then throws a few major twists and turns to the story and comes up with and ending that really Wows you!
I encourage you to pick up a copy of His Risk to read for your enjoyment! I received this book from Litfuse to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review.

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.
DianFlowW. Columbia, SCAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Amish Suspense!April 11, 2018DianFlowW. Columbia, SCAge: 55-65Gender: 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!
