After losing her fiancé in a tragic accident, Veronica Fisher finds solace in the old recipes stored in her mother’s hope chest—and in a special visitor who comes to her bake stand to purchase her old-fashioned raspberry pies.
Veronica Fisher knows how lucky she is to be marrying her best friend. Seth Lapp is kind, hardworking, and handsome—but most importantly, he loves Veronica.
When an accident on the job steals Seth away from her, a heartbroken Veronica is certain she will never love—or be loved—again. Yet when she discovers a batch of forgotten recipes and opens a bake stand to sell her Mammi’s raspberry pies, Veronica picks up a regular customer who gives her heart pause.
Jason Huyard was with Seth when he lost his life—a memory that haunts him still. So when he seeks out the grieving fiancée to convey his condolences, the last thing he expects—or wants—is to fall in love. Nonetheless, Jason soon finds himself visiting Veronica’s bake stand every week . . . and it’s for more than the raspberry pies.
Now, as Veronica’s heart thaws, Jason can’t bring himself to tell her he was there when Seth died. Can he ever reveal where he was on the day her life derailed? Or will his secret rob them of the second chance at love they both want?
The Forgotten Recipe is another great book by bestselling author, Amy Clipston! As always, she manages to bring her characters to life in a way that makes you feel as if you know them. Oftentimes I feel as if people jump right into weaving a story and forget the most important element–the characters. If you’re looking for well written Amish Fiction with excellent storytelling and character development–look no further this first installment in An Amish Heirloom series.
Book number two in this series is called The Courtship Basket and is set to be released on July 19,2016. Be sure to add this book to your Goodreads Want to Read List to keep an eye on cover reveal and to get a sneak peek at the synopsis!
