About this Book

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.

Get ready to journey back to Hart County as Shelley Shepard Gray's Amish of Hart County series continues with His Promise and a Christmas setting.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this series and I was excited when I found out there was a new one I got even more excited that it was set around Christmas. One of the main things I have enjoyed in this series as a whole is the mystery/suspense element. Gray has developed a number of suspense twists and she did the same with His Promise.

Grace King's story was interesting as we find her pet-sitting in a beautiful home. Gray did a great job transporting me into the scenes as Grace had to deal with a difficult dachshund.

While the suspense element wasn't as strong in this book as others in the series, that didn't take away from making this a good read. I was intrigued by the suspense elements and I felt the emotions of the characters.
