Her Secret by Shelley Shepard Gray - Review of the first book in the Amish of Hart County series

(copied from Amazon.com)
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 the will ever have anything in common. But as Hannah and Isaac slowly grow closer, the 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.

What a great story Shelley has told here, she pulls you in and keeps you on your toes as you continue to read, not wanting to put it down. I am so looking forward to the next one in the series, "His Guilt", due out on July 4th with two more to follow. I am so recommending this book to my friends!
