"His Guilt" || Christian Fiction, Amish Fiction, Book Review

About the book: 

A suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves.

Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County, determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though never forgot his home. When the one person who had helped him through his rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay…
Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn’t believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior do make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.
Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta’s is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe he is guilty. But what hurts most is Neeta’s sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt, a woman who is close to both Neeta and himself, Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find him before Neeta becomes his next victim?


My Personal Review: 

If you guys have been around for many of my book reviews you will know that I have read and reviewed several books from this author and she has been a favorite of mine for many years. So naturally, I was super excited when the chance to read her new story, the second book in her latest series, The Amish of Hart County. This book, like all others from Gray, did not disappoint.

In “His Guilt”, the storyline full of unforgiveness, drama, suspense and a budding romance between the leading characters.  Which in my opinion, made this book captivating story and one I enjoyed immensely. I  liked the darker topics addressed in “His Guilt”, they made this book stand out from your typical fictional Amish story line. Watching the characters navigate through these tough subjects tugged at my heart and the suspense of finding out who was really behind the attacks on the community made it hard for me to put the book down.

This is another great book, but honestly, I expected nothing less from Gray. Her talent for writing stories that keep you engaged and excellent character development always leave me longing for her next new title.  I highly recommend this book, and would also urge you to pick up the first book in the series, “Her Secret.”
