    About “Shelley Shepard Gray

    1. Shelley Shepard Gray says:

      Librarian Note AKA Shelley Gray Western Romance.I live in southern Ohio with my husband, two teenagers, and two dogs My days are filled with busy activities like most any other mom and housewife But I also love to write books.Each morning, after my kids go off to school, I sit at my desk, look out my window, and dream of other places The hours fly by as I make up people and places and drink way too much coffee.Writing for Avon Inspire has truly been a dream come true Being able to spend my days in my make believe world of the Brenneman Bed and Breakfast is a true blessing I have enjoyed getting to know about the Amish culture and tapping into my faith as I show each character s progression toward a personal relationship with our Lord.Before becoming a full time writer, I taught elementary school in Texas, Arizona, and Colorado A job transfer to Ohio led my husband to encourage me to finally give writing a try After all, I had notebooks full of made up stories.I ll never forget that first book I typed in our unfinished basement It was exciting to make up a story, but also very scary I was also so embarrassed, sure someone would come out of the woodwork and point out that I wasn t a real writer But I persevered, and sold my third manuscript.Things have changed a bit Now I have a real office of my own think old guest bedroom My walls are painted pink, and than a couple of book covers decorate my walls But my days are still the same I wake up, dream about other people, and do my best to type out stories.

    1. Reading a Shelley Shepard Gray book is like a glorious homecoming. There's comfort and familiarity paired with the unexpected of a new story. The thrill of discovery spikes my anticipation and once I start reading I can't stop until I reach the end. Which is exactly what happened with The Gift. Consumed in one sitting followed by the letdown of having finished far too soon.The suspense is subtle -- a series of unexpected accidents that no one wants to take seriously except for Susanna and her si [...]

    2. The author has created a page tuner here, and I couldn’t put it down, quickly became involved and wondered who was doing the evil acts. Yes, I guessed and guessed wrong, but you will be doing the same with this non-stop action in Amish country, and first impressions are not always right!I loved being back in Hart County and being updated on past friends, and love has survived! This is a new group, but they are now part of the family, and this story is going to linger with you for a long time.B [...]

    3. This is book 3 in The Hart of Amish County.It's the perfect book for this time of year. You get the best of both worlds in this one book Amish and Christmas.Romance, a little bit of a mystery, and Amish living. You can't go wrong. Now about the mystery, I can't wait for you readers to let me know what you think about who was behind all of these accidents. Gray, has out done herself on this series.

Ssshhh… don’t bother me while I’m reading!I loved Susanna and Neil – together and separately. They are both fantastic characters and they have grea [...]

    5. The Gift was a great way to jump into some holiday reading, peppered with a bit of mystery and danger. It is part of a series set in Hart County, however, is definitely readable as a stand alone novel.The main characters, Susanna and Neil, get off to a very rocky start. I really liked Susanna and felt so sorry for the way she and her family were being treated. I also felt for Neil, even though I was frustrated with him early on in the story. I appreciated the way the author showed his emotional [...]

    6. Another Amish gem from Shelley Shepard Gray! I got an advanced copy and I immediately read it all in one sitting! A perfect clean read for the holidays and people who like Amish novels.

    7. ". . . out of the darkness had come the light. In all of its blinding goodness."When you read a title like "The Gift," what did you expect? I for one expected something tangible, and granted there could be depending on how you read into it. However, I should've known Shelley Shepard Gray would exceed expectations. In her latest story, the third book in the Amish of Hart County series, The Gift represented so much more.". . . you raised me to respect others, have faith in Jesus, and practice forg [...]

    8. Shelley Shepard Gray has a GIFT! From the first book in The Amish of Hart County Series she has had my heart. The story of Neil and Susanna is a beautiful portrayal of the twist and turns of life and the effects of others actions and how they create our path in life. Neil's kind heart leads him to aid an injured Susanna. Neil's family's hurt causes him to dislike the family who purchased the family farm. Then he finds out that Susanna's Family owns the Farm.

    9. "The Gift" by Shelley Shepard Gray "is the third book in the ( Amish of Hart County) series. Each one can be read as a stand alone but like always I have read them all and each story is separate except the sheriff is the same in each story. You might be asking yourself why a sheriff in an Amish story, well it is true that these books are of the Amish genre but they are a mixture of mystery also. "The Gift" is a story that kept me turning the pages. It is a story that shows that people need to ta [...]

    10. THE GIFT is the third book in the Amish of Hart County series by popular author Shelley Shepard Gray, but it easily stands alone. This one is also a Christmas book, but could be read at any time of the year. Written in Ms. Gray's sweet voice, the story is everything you come to expect from a Shelley Shepard Gray novel. Sweet. Innocent. Engaging. Sue and her family are new to Hart County, but they expected to quickly make friends and be accepted. Instead, Sue is shot at right away, and while they [...]

    11. The Gift was another atmospheric Amish read that made me chilly just reading it. This is a story about two families, one who lost the farm and one whose dreams came true at finding and buying a farm that they could actually afford. Starting off with quite a wild ride, we are gripped with a sense of unease and a dark malevolence from the very start. Too many accidents cannot be ignored. Susanna and her family try to reach out to their neighbors to find out why they have been ostracized by the com [...]

    12. This was a very interesting Amish story. It had mystery, danger, and double romance. The Schwartz Family has scrimped and saved for a long time in order to buy a farm. The Vance Family has put their farm up for sale because of debt and mismanaged finances. The small community seems to have hard feelings against the newcomer Schwartz Family for "taking the Vance's farm away from them". Mysterious "accidents" seem to befall the Schwartz Family, some life threatening. Who is behind these happenings [...]

    14. Yet another great book in this series. I don't think Shelley Shepard Gray could write a bod book if she tried. This one was really intense. It was very suspenseful and certainly kept you wondering. I did have an inkling who was the suspect, but really wasn't sure until the end. I really loved all the characters in this story. This is something Shelly has a gift for - character development. She just has a way with her characters as if she know them all personally and wants you to know them as wel [...]

    15. When you start reading this book you are grabbed on the first page. I wanted to know right away who was causing the accidents. Like Susanna's father you think the obvious person would be Vance and his family but you don't want to it to be him so you keep looking for clues to figure out who it could be. This book was full of adventure, mystery and love. It was fun to go back to Hart County and meet some new friends. The author does a good job of developing the characters and making them very lika [...]

But their dream suddenly becomes a nightmare as they become a target for someones vengeance. The Amish community gives them a lukewarm welcome while some members are [...]

    19. Shelley Shepard Gray has found a way to combine three of my favorite genres into one beautifully written story - amish fiction, clean light romance, and mystery! I have been a fan of Shelley's for a long time, and I think this style of writing has been my favorite of hers to date. She easily blends the three genres together as if they always belong together - just like a perfectly finished puzzle. Her stories leave readers wanting more, and I hope there is more stories such as this in the future [...]

    20. Author Shelley Shepard Gray has written "The Gift" and this is part of her series called The Amish of Hart County series. As usual I really enjoy her stories. Suzanna Schwartz is very happy to be on her new farm with all of her family right in time for Christmas. Why does it seem that other people are trying to hurt them or at the very least trying to make them leave? It can be no accident when her sister is almost killed. Neil Vance is the man who used to own the farm with his family, before th [...]

    21. The Gift is Shelly Shepard Gray's third installment in her Amish of Hart County series. Although it's the third book it can be read as a stand alone.

    23. Sometimes through no fault of our own making, things change in unexpected ways that leave us feeling upset and downright mad. When the Vance family put their farm up for sale, there were no takers for quite some time. Forced into the option by their Uncle whom their father has quite the debt to pay thanks to gambling issues, they were left with no choice than to take whatever was offered, even if it wasn't enough to settle the debt. While their Uncle demanded full payment or turning the property [...]

    24. I've savored this marvelous and beautiful story since I closed the book, wondering what is happening in the lives of my new friends/family members of Hart County, Kentucky. The Schwartz family had expected to be accepted in their new Amish community, but instead accidents and actions seemed to be happening to their family to convince them to return to Holmes County, Ohio. They had never owned a farm and were thrilled to be spending their first Christmas on the farm they had purchased from the Va [...]

    25. As part of the Litfuse Bloggers Program, I was able to join in on the Blog Tour for The Gift: The Amish of Hart County by Shelley Shepard Gray.  I have always loved Ms. Gray's writing, so I was very eager to dig into this story.  The Gift is Shelley Shepard Gray's third installment in her Amish of Hart County series, but even though it is the third book, it can definitely be read as a stand alone. My bet is that once you've read this one, if you haven't read the others, you'll go back and rea [...]

    27. There is always that one book you read that has a Christmas theme that really reaches into your heart. It softens your bitterness and releases that pinned up anger. You feel comfort and joy knowing that everything is going to be better. This book has exactly all those qualities and so much more. I experienced each emotion with the characters and found then becoming like family to me. It’s not easy moving to a new place and trying to fit in, but the Schwartz family is trying to do just that. Th [...]

    28. The more I get to know the characters in Hart County, the more I want to get to know them. The Gift is book three in the series of The Amish of Hart County and the suspense of who was causing the accidents is what grabbed me from the start. After all, in a "sleepy little Amish town" everyone knows everyone else. Why would someone try to deliberately hurt their neighbors? As I continued to read and get wrapped up in the plot, I enjoyed getting to know the characters even more. It seemed like Aman [...]
