The Forgotten Recipe Book Review

I  was excited to find one book by this wonderful author at the library so I put it on the reserve list.  The Forgotten Recipe (An Amish Heirloom Novel) by Amy Clipston came in and I was so excited that it jumped in front of other books in the pile but I was excited to read it and it happened to be the only one that I was reading that wasn't in a series of books.

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?

I thought it was a great book and spent a lot of time reading it when I should have been sleeping.  I know that I shouldn't pick up the books before falling asleep because I can't stop reading.  On the other hand, my husband decides that he wants to go to bed and he climbs into bed lays down and he is sleeping in minutes.  I let the story distract me from getting settled down to sleep but sometimes you have a page turner like this one and don't want to put it down even if your eyes are really tired.  Veronica Fisher decided that she would be sad and alone because she lost her fiance in a tragic accident.  Her family is trying to help her through the pain but they are pushing her to give life a chance to heal her.  In the process, she finds her grandmother's recipes and starts making raspberry pies which she sells at a farm stand in front of her house.  These pies and her increased confidence (not to mention a special man), help her to grown and heal.  Pick up the book for yourself and see how these wonderful characters evolve and change throughout the book.  I hope that you check out this book and others by this great author!!  I can't wait until I find more at the book sales or through the library to read soon.
