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?
As expected, Amy Clipston’s newest novel, The Forgotten Recipe, delivers a heartwarming Amish story about two individuals affected by one man’s death. Veronica and Jason both grieve the loss of Seth, and this common grief brings them together again and again at a bake stand. As their relationship develops, both characters must come to terms with their unexpected yet shared budding love and attraction and deal with the secrets and burdens holding them back. A great start to the Amish Heirloom series, The Forgotten Recipe is an engaging read and left me eager for more at the end. Any fan of Amish fiction will not want to miss this novel from Amy Clipston.
