Book Review: "The Forgotten Recipe" by Amy Clipston

Veronica Fisher's life is shattered when her best friend and fiance, Seth Lapp, is killed in an accident at work. She finds her mammi's forgotten recipes and opens a bake stand to sell her raspberry pies. When a customer starts coming regularly to buy her pies, she finds herself feeling a connection with him.

Jason Huyard seeks out Seth's fiancee to offer his condolences. He doesn't expect to feel so attracted to her and finds himself falling in love with her. He knows he needs to tell her that he was there the day that Seth died, but he's afraid that he'll loose her.

I really enjoyed reading "The Forgotten Recipe" by Amy Clipston. It is the first book in the "An Amish Heirloom Novel" Series. It was easy to connect with the characters and feel like they were friends. The book flowed easily and the characters desired to follow God's plan for their lives. I look forward to reading the next book in the series so I can find out what is going on between Veronica's sister Rachel and her boyfriend and also about the mystery surrounding the hope chest in the attic.
