Product description


"Heart-warming, heart-stopping romantic suspense!"--New York Times Bestselling Author Wendy Corsi Staub

"It is easy to become invested in the characters, as even the secondary characters are well-developed and vital to the storyline... the taut writing creates a perfect blend of mystery and romance."--RT Book Reviews (4 1/2 stars)

From the Back Cover

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray delivers the next novel in her Amish of Hart County series--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 he never forgot his home. When the one person who helped him through 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 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 Mark is guilty. But what hurts him most is Neeta's sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt--a woman who is close to both Neeta and Mark--Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find the perpetrator before Neeta becomes his next victim?

5.0 out of 5 stars Overcoming Your Past 15 July 2017
By Deana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book grabs your attention right away and never lets up. I loved the intrigue in the story and found myself so engrossed that I blocked everything around me out. The author has once again delivered a story that kept me emotionally invested and on edge of my seat at the same time. Her writing style is filled with details that made me feel the story was playing out right in front of me. Each scene took on a vivid picture and placed readers right in front viewing the story with anticipation.

Waneta is a wonderful character. She is fair, hardworking and filled with faith. Some people may think she is stuck up but once you get to know her, you sense her sincerity and compassion. I loved her relationship with her parents and how they represented a family of unconditional love. She is a great worker and loves helping others.

Mark has come back to town after being away for awhile. Oh my this character tugged on my heart so much. His upbringing was horrible and painful. The many beatings and lack of food and clothing that his parents made him and his little brother endure was very hard to read. As kids they suffered as others picked on them and made fun of them. The author did an amazing job of writing about child abuse with grace and allowed readers to see how damaging it can be to a child. I loved how Mark showed courage when he returned after being accused of hurting a girl. Even though he was found innocent , will the town accept him? One of the great things about his character is that he has continued in his faith.

I thought the friendship between Mark and Waneta was so special . As she realizes that she has been judging Mark, she knew God was directing her to be Mark's friend and to show forgiveness. One of the best parts of the story is when Mark is struggling with acceptance and learning to forgive himself. Will Waneta be able to help Mark and show him that real friends never never up? Overcoming his childhood is painful and his desire to make a better life for himself was incredible to read. I loved his determination and willingness to not give up.

When another woman is attacked, the townspeople start gossiping and spreading rumors. All to quickly Mark seems to be at the center of the investigation. Can Mark prove his innocence? Will Waneta stick by him? Who is abusing women in the community? Don't miss this exciting book that takes a look at childhood abuse, domestic violence and allows God's grace to turn judgment and fear into forgiveness and trust.

"We all need to stop judging others and casting stones. We also need to seek forgiveness."

I received a copy of this book from LitFuse. The review is my own opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy topics in a small town 8 July 2017
By savingsinseconds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
His Guilt deals with the pressure of growing up in a small town, then staying there as an adult. Many readers will understand the microcosm of small town life. Though it’s part of a series, it is a completely different story from Her Secret. You can definitely read it as a standalone.

Although I enjoyed His Guilt, it wasn’t my favorite title from Gray. So many hints and obvious clues were given, I was tempted to skip right to the end to confirm my suspicions. The dialogue didn’t seem genuine…I couldn’t imagine actual adults carrying on these conversations. Keep in mind that I received an uncorrected proof, so the finished copy may show significant improvements.

For me, the appeal of the series is that it’s based in central Kentucky. There were discussions about the geography of the area (Horse Cave, for example) that made the story more interesting. Also, Gray deserves recognition for addressing the hot-topic issues of domestic abuse and general physical abuse, as well as public stigma that defies the “innocent until proven guilty” stance. Some of the side characters in His Guilt caught my attention, and I wondered if Gray will develop them more in a future novel. I received this book as part of a blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something sinister is stalking the women of Hart County! Will they find out who it is before the body count rises? 11 July 2017

Format: Paperback
"Whatever your past has been, you have a spotless future." - Amish Proverb

Who knew Christian fiction could be so heart pounding? There will be some that will enjoy this book and others the define everything through a black and white microscope might think differently. This is a series unlike anything that falls under the Amish genre, and for someone looking for a bit of suspense in solving a murder mystery, then this is the series for you. It will have you glued to the book until the final page is turning hoping that this doesn't leave you in a cliff-hanger for the third novel and rest assured, you will have all the answers by the last page. Which leads me to ask the question, what will the third novel cover? Guess we will have to sit back and bide our time til it releases.

His Guilt is the second novel in the Amish of Hart County Series with Her Secret being the first. Please read them in order to gain the most satisfaction in understanding where the second novel picks up. Mark Fisher returns back to Hart County, where he and his brother Calvin shared a less than normal Amish upbringing. Suffering at the hands of an abusive alcoholic father, and a mother that seemed to wish both boys were not hers, Calvin and Mark both left to find new futures some place else. Now that Mark Fisher has returned and is trying to find a new future now that his parents have passed away, leaving him the family home to restore, he struggles to fit into the community that is resolved to hold his past against him.

He was questioned before in the assault of Bethany Miller, but was released when they could find no evidence to convict him. However most in the Amish community would rather have Mark Fisher leave and never come back. They are quite so willing to find forgiveness in their hearts. Waneta Cain, a young Amish woman tries to see things from a different perspective along with his employer and great friend, Mr. Lehmann who all work for Blooms and Berries. But when a murder happens, suddenly all eyes look for Mark Fisher, who once again seems to be the focus of this investigation. As more and more violence escalates in the community, members of Hart County seem convinced that Mark is the one to blame, but is he or is there something more sinister happening in the community that no one notices until it is too late?

I received His Guilt by Shelley Shepard Gray compliments of Avon Inspire, a division of Harper Collins Publishers and Litfuse Publicity. This is one of the best suspense murder mystery series, I have read to date and love how Shelley doesn't give it all away until the very end as police investigations find the real guilty person, and it is not who I thought it was. It reminds you that too often we judge people based not only on their appearances, but also holding their past against them as well. When do we let people try and make a better future for themselves without our judging their actions of the past? For me, this one is worth all 5 out of 5 stars in this reader's opinion and can't wait for the third novel in the series to release.

4.0 out of 5 stars A heartwarming romance with a hard-hitting storyline that is not typically found in Amish fiction (4.5 stars) 4 July 2017
By K. Branfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In His Guilt, Shelley Shepard Gray’s insightful storyline about the effects of gossip and judgmental attitudes will give readers a lot to think about. Although this latest thought-provoking release is the second installment in the The Amish of Hart County series, it can easily be read as a standalone.

Two years earlier, Mark Fisher was questioned by the Sheriff about a brutal assault on a young woman in the community. He was ultimately cleared of any involvement in the case and he moved away soon after. He has recently returned to Hart County in order to work with Henry Lehman, the one person who has always supported and believed in him. His co-worker, Waneta “Neeta” Cain is initially a little anxious in his presence, but once she gets to know Mark, will she realize everyone’s fears about him are unfounded?

Although they grew up in the same Amish community, Mark and Neeta’s life experiences are very different. Mark’s childhood was extremely dysfunctional and his parents were abusive and neglected both him and his younger brother Calvin. Unlike Mark, Neeta’s parents were nothing but loving and the three of them are still quite close. As an adult, she remains devoted to them but will their relationship withstand their quick judgment against Mark?

When another young woman in the community is attacked, Mark is once again indicted in the court of public opinion. However, gifted preachedr Eli delivers a powerful sermon about the dangers of gossip and judging others, but will his flock take his lessons to heart? Fortunately there are some members who are willing to admit they are wrong but when the Sheriff fails to make an arrest and the perpetrator strikes again, will Mark be able to prove his innocence?

His Guilt is a heartwarming romance with a hard-hitting storyline that is not typically found in Amish fiction. Shelley Shepard Gray broaches difficult subject matter with sensitivity and deftly highlights the fact that not even peaceful, religious communities are exempt from violence, child abuse and malicious gossip. Mark carries a terrible burden as he tries to overcome his dysfunctional past and he struggles to feel worthy of the unconditional love and support of the people in his life. Despite her strong conviction in her faith, Neeta must face her own shortcomings as the events unfold within the close-knit community. This latest addition to The Amish of Hart County series is a beautifully delivered lesson in forgiveness that also carries a timely reminder to avoid gossip and harsh judgment of others.

I received a complimentary copy for review.
