Her Secret by Shelley Shepard Gray

We've been having terrible storms down here so I was in the mood for something to match the weather.  Something not typical with a twist of suspense.

Boom!  I had just the right book.  From the back:  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.

Secrets have a way of haunting us.  Ms.  Grey weaves an Amish thriller packed full of secrets, suspense, twists and turns.  You feel Hannah's fear and tension as a stalker makes her life miserable. What links would you go to to protect your child?  Would you move and try to hide your secrets?

This book often left me with chills running up my spine and kept me drawn in turning page after page.  Will the family ever find peace?  Can Hannah turn to God after all that has happened to her? Can secrets stay hidden or will everything be brought to the light?

Pick up your copy of Her Secret and visit Hart County for a suspenseful and fast paced read!  Happy Reading!
