Winter Reads: His Promise by Shelley Shepard Gray


Yes, I'm well aware that is Christmas is officially over. So why I am reviewing a Christmas themed romance novel?

Well, I actually read this book a few weeks ago and my originally attention was to have my review posted on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Things didn't go as planned, but nevertheless, here I am writing my review for it.

His Promise (Avon Inspire; 352 pages; $7.99) is the sixth installment in the In Hart County series by Shelley Shepard Gray, who has written many novels set in the Amish world, which is one of my favorite genres to read.

The novel is centered around Grace King, a young woman who finds herself pet-sitting a dachshund named Snooze for two weeks near Christmastime. Coincidentally, John Michael Miller happens to live next door, a fireman who had courted and broke her older sister's heart five years ago. As guess you can say Grace is pretty upset with John for what he did to her sister. However, Grace doesn't know that John broke up with her sister because he had realized he was actually in love with her.

Several suspicious fires occur across the county and John is determined to keep Grace safe, even if she doesn't want his protection.

Final Thoughts

Just like the other books in the series, I enjoyed reading His Promise. It's a fast-paced, beautifully written Amish romance with a little bit of suspense. The main characters are likeable, which is also a plus with me with any read. Amish romances can get a little bit stale after awhile, but Shelley Shepard Gray manages to inject new life into the genre by adding an exciting mystery subplot, which she has done to all the books in this series.

Overall, His Promise is another great entry in the In Hart County series.
