Her Secret by Shelley Shepard Gray: Book Review

I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review.  Please see below for additional disclaimers.

Shelley1What's it about?
"A 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."

I was sent this book for a book tour and for a review.

I was not sure if I was going to enjoy this book at all, but I thought it was pretty good.  It is not your typical Amish story.  There are twist and turns to keep you glued to the pages.

I think the author did a good job putting the suspense and fear of having a stalker into this reading experience.  I was engaged in the story, and wanted to find out what was going to happen next.  If you are fan of romance with a suspense thrown in, I highly recommend this.

It did take me a few chapters to really get into the story line.  I almost put this down and gave up on reading it.  I am glad I pushed through.  It was worth it!
