The FORGOTTEN RECIPE by Amy Clipston
I could feel the heartbreaking sadness of Veronica when her fiancee dies in an accidental fall. I liked how she found a way to keep busy enough to get through the days and try to work through her grief. When Jason, Veronica’s fiancee’s best friend wants to express his condolences, he suddenly finds himself drawn to her and can’t tell her of that relationship. Through her bake stand and the forgotten raspberry pie recipe, Veronica starts to heal and they become friends. Then the struggle of a promise and the stress of a secret causes conflict in Jason’s emotions. Jason has to find a way to confess a secret of knowing of her before through her fiancee. The accidental death of Veronica’s fiance and Jason’s friend and Veronica’s solace in her Mother’s “forgotten recipe” made this a wonderful story of family, faith and renewal. I enjoyed reading this gentle Amish romance.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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?
