"The Amish of Hart County series has been one of my favorites and I can’t recommend it enough. I’ve enjoyed the mystery, the unique storylines, and the times I’ve been a little on the edge of my seat. If you haven’t read any of the other books in this series, His Promise can easily be read as a stand alone. It has a great storyline and moves at the perfect pace with warm characters that you will love." - Cathy, Goodreads

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.
“This?” He looked at his hand like he’d forgotten a bandage was attached to his skin.
“It ain’t anything, just a cut.”
It seemed like a pretty big bandage for a small cut. “Are you sure that’s all it is?”
“Jah. I’m fine. I wouldn’t be a firefighter if
I didn’t sport a couple of cuts every now and then.”
“It’s such a dangerous job.”
“It is,” he said slowly, like he was attempting to navigate his way through an increasingly surprising conversation. “But I can handle it. I appreciate your concern, though.”
She heard the caution in his voice, and she didn’t blame him for not being sure how to handle this new, kinder version of herself.
Forging ahead, she said, “I know I have no right to feel this way, but now that we’ve reconnected,
I think I’m going to worry about you every time I hear there is a fire in the area.”
