Blurb (from Amazon):
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest Christmas novel in her Amish of Hart County series.
It’s set to be a white Christmas in Hart County, and Grace King is pet-sitting in a beautiful home with only a difficult dachshund for company. Just as she starts to miss the bustle of her large Amish family, Grace runs into a familiar face. Living right next door is John Michael Miller. He’s a fireman now, but five years ago, he had courted her older sister, then broke her heart. Seeing him again stirs Grace’s anger, but also reminds her of deeper feelings she’s done her best to deny.
The infatuation John Michael once saw in Grace’s eyes is long gone, though his complicated attraction to her remains. He had walked away all those years ago when he realized he was falling in love with the wrong sister. Now, as suspicious fires are set in their community, that’s not an option. Grace dismisses his warnings, and John Michael vows to keep an eye on her. But he can’t help wondering if he’s reconnected with Grace, only to risk losing her again.
Now all John Michael wants for Christmas is to keep Grace safe, in the hopes that they can one day have a future together.
His Promise is the sixth installment from Shelley Shepard Gray’s The Amish of Hart County series. I believe this one is probably my favorite I have read of the series so date. I enjoyed Grace’s story. Especially, when John Michael came into the picture. There is a little mystery that needs to be solved that keeps reader interested, as well.
I give His Promise four stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy Christmas time and Amish stories.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
