Review: The Forgotten Recipe by:Amy Clipston

The Forgotten Recipe
About the Book:
After losing her fiancĂ© 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 fiancĂ©e 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?

My Review:
 Veronica has lost her one and only true love to a terrible accident. She never had it in her plans to lose the man of her dreams. But yet it seems that it has happened anyway. She counts on the fact of never being involved with another ever again. She feels that Seth could never be replaced. She occupies her time by going through old recipes of her grandmothers. Soon her raspberry pies become a huge hit and she gets a regular customer for these little pies of deliciousness. 

 Jason starts to visit Veronica every week to get one of those pies or is that the real reason? He knew Seth and was there when the accident happened. He only wanted to share with veronica how sorry he was for her loss but something happened inside of him when he met her and its a feeling he hasn't been able to shake ever since. 

Can the two of them navigate this life without Seth and find love for themselves? Is it possible for Veronica to give her heart to another?

 Amy Clipston has the most beautiful writing. She takes you to the place or setting of the book. You feel like you travel right along with the characters, not many writers are able to accomplish this. A beautiful story that takes heartbreak and returns it to a heart in one piece.
