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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Sweet Savor Monday, February 8, 2016 The Forgotten Recipe by Amy Clipston, © 2015 The Amish Heirloom Series, Book 1 Veronica Fisher has a lot of hobbies and proficiencies ~ skipping stones, and a new-found favorite ~ a raspberry pie recipe from previous generations, saved in an heirloom trunk. There is another recipe that you will find will open a lot of doors with a sweet savor. Discover it as you enjoy Amy Clipston's An Amish Heirloom Novel. I enjoyed getting to meet the protagonists, Veronica Fisher and Jason Huyard and their families. I especially liked that they confided in their elders for advise, and among their siblings. How refreshing to have the openness to be heard and to hear. Their exchanges were greeted with listening thoroughly and the confidence of a reply beneficial to them from experience and godly wisdom. Pies, jams, relish, and pickles are favorites at Veronica's roadside bake stand. The peach salsa they eat up at the house sounds yummy too. Jason and his bruder, Stephen, go to buy pies for their mamm. Unknown to Jason, this is the home of the Veronica he had been searching for, the fiancée of his best friend, Seth Lapp, who recently died in an accident on their job. Seth had spoken of Veronica so often, Jason felt as if he knew her. Seeing her the night at Lapp's, he wanted to find her to offer his condolences and felt responsibility for Seth. As they come across each other at gatherings, Jason is drawn to Veronica and finds it difficult to talk to her about Seth, not wanting to add to her sorrow. As time spans on, it becomes increasingly harder for fear of losing her friendship because he hadn't told her from the beginning that he had known Seth. Excellent introduction of everyone, very fluidly as if we are walking alongside them. I wanted to tell Jason, "Just tell her." Difficult to do when you want to be known for yourself and the time has passed and you didn't say. I look forward to the next book in this series. ***Thank you to author Amy Clipston for sending me a print copy of The Forgotten Recipe for review. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.*** Watch for Book 2 in The Amish Heirloom Series releasing in July 2016 ~ The Courtship Basket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romance With Secrets The forgotten recipe is about a newly found old recipe that Veronica’s grandmother used to make. This recipe turns out to be a great hit with everyone, and is the catalyst to bringing the main two characters together. Jason Huyard’s mother hears about this wonderful pie and wants her sons to get her some from a sweet Amish girl Veronica Fisher, and thus the story of a new relationship begins. Not an easy path, this is one that has a shared grief of loosing a future husband and a best friend. Both having nightmares of how they maybe could have saved Seth’s life, even though they both know that it was his time and God called him home. The path is not going to be easy to place these two together, there is another girl who seems to be very interested in Jason. There are also some deep secrets that are being withheld and then some almost insurmountable times to have told the truth that seem to have been missed. This is a quick and entertaining read, and you really won’t know until the end what will happen, and I felt I was left with a cliffhanger when another secret is partially revealed, but not all the answers. I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
