About the Book:
My Personal Thoughts and Review:
The Gift is the third installment in Gray’s series The Amish of Hart County and I have shared the first two books with you all here as well. If you haven’t seen my reviews on those check out His Guilt and Her Secret. Both were fantastic books so I urge you to give them a try.
In this third book, we meet some new families in Hart county including the Schwartz family that have recently purchased a farm and moved to the community. They instantly begin dealing with some unwelcoming feelings from the community and some not so accidental events targeting their family. From gunshots to a burning shed, it seems that someone is making it known they do not want this family in the community. As with the other books in this series, the suspense element kept me interested and reading page after page. For those that love the romance side, never fear because Shelly also included some sweet budding romances with the story. She always has a way of developing her storyline and characters into easy and enjoyable stories.
Although this book is a part of a series and I would love for you to read the other two books also, I believe this book and the characters are written well enough for a stand-alone read if you want. I would say though, that out of the three I have read so far this one would be my least favorite, but that’s not saying much since I love it, ha. I just felt a little more connect to the characters in the previous two books. Trust me any chance you get a chance to read a story from Shelly Shepard Gray, including this one, I recommend you take it!
