The sweet welcome of straight-from-the-oven sugar cookies and hot cocoa. The warm invitation of apple pie and fresh cold milk. In 1912 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery is the heart of a close-knit, faith-nourished community, where people can find a refuge, a place to start again—and love that can make their lives new . . .
For Liza Schrock, the bakery her late husband bought was an unexpected haven from their unhappy arranged marriage. Now she's perfectly content to cook up mouth-watering delights for her hometown, give to those alone or in trouble—and remain happily unwed. And though she's willing to give handsome, newly-arrived widower Jacob Graber all the help he desperately needs, she is sure they can stay just friends . . .
But as Liza also tries to aid Jacob's troubled teenage daughter, she starts caring far too much for his gentle ways and steadfast hopes. And when a wrenching secret she must keep comes between them, can Liza find the faith to risk opening her heart again—and reach for one more chance at real love?
I enjoyed this book! I had a couple not really issues but annoyances…first. I liked Liza, loved her connection with her family! I hated that she kept such a secret about her life and didn’t even share it with her sister. I liked Jacob I really did but my biggest issue with this book was that everyone excepted him way to easily…like Hi your new to town you have my blessing to marry my sister…..a little unrealistic to me. any one else have a harder time excepting this???
I had a hard time keeping in mind the setting…..1912….I had to remind myself more than once but hey thats not that big of a deal.
Other than those things I liked the story and will read more from the series…I can’t wait to see who the next book will be about.
To celebrate her tour, Molly is giving away a $75 Amazon gift card!!
