His Risk - Book Review

About the Book:

An undercover English DEA agent will do anything to protect the Amish girl he loves.
Calvin Fisher left the Amish community at fourteen and never looked back. Only his brother's illness can bring him back to Hart County. Now, as Calvin works to make amends, he meets Alice, a local nursery school teacher, and falls hard for her. But he has a secret that could threaten the happiness he's finally found.

Alice shouldn't like-or want-Calvin. He's English, has a questionable past, and an even more questionable job. Still, she can't help being intrigued. Though Calvin assures Alice that he's worthy of her, she's torn between surrendering to her growing feelings and steering clear of him.
When a sudden surge of criminal activity alarms the community and even targets Alice, Calvin fears that his double life has put everyone he loves at risk. As for Alice, she can't help but wonder if the brave and honorable man she's lost her heart to is far more dangerous than she could ever imagine.

My Review:

I like reading fiction books about the Amish community, and His Risk did not disappoint.  It takes the Amish and combines it with the world of the English.

This novel is about a guy named Calvin Fisher who is an undercover DEA agent.  No one knows this, and it brings about danger.  Calvin is involved with The Kings, a gang who deals with dope.  Calvin's brother gets cancer and Calvin goes there to help care for his sibling.  Alice, an Amish girl, lives across the road and the two meet.  Bad things start happening at Horse Cave, the Amish community.  Calvin and Alice work together to find out who's at the bottom of it all.

His Risk is a little different than the usual Amish genre that I'm accustomed to.  There wasn't a whole lot of suspense or surprise, but the characters are intriguing and the overall story is good.
