The Bake Shop (Amish Marketplace #1) by Amy Clipston






Return to Lancaster County with the first installment of Amy Clipston's charming new Amish Marketplace series.

Christiana Kurtz loves to bake, but when her bake stand becomes too busy, her mother encourages her to move her business to the local market. Her new bake shop becomes so inundated with customers that the line blocks the leather and woodcraft shop next door, which is run by Jeffrey Stoltzfus. When Jeffrey complains that her stand is driving away business due to the lines, she complains to him that his personalization machine smells. Though their relationship starts off on bad footing, they eventually forge a friendship.

When Christiana’s father makes a surprise visit to the market, he is upset to find that Jeffrey uses the building’s electricity to personalize his items. He tells Christiana that Jeffrey is too modern for her, and she’s forbidden from dating him. Christiana is crushed, but she knows she must obey her father.

When Jeffrey’s shop catches fire one day, he puts the entire market in jeopardy—including Christiana’s bake shop. Christiana, however, can’t deny how she feels about Jeffrey despite his mistakes. Though the odds are against them, can two young people find a way to rebuild both their businesses and their relationship.

My Review






I have read many books by this author, and she never disappoints me, and you are in for another treat with this book.
The author gives us a young woman who goes about her life living her faith, and works hard to help support them.
Then we are given a young Amish man who has been deeply hurt by his fiancĂ©e and sure doesn’t want that pain again, but does God have other plans for him?
Enter a man who is deep man of faith, to the point that he won’t bend any rules that might lead anyone in is family from being Amish.
You are about to embark on a journey that is not smooth, and has a lot of up and downs, to maybe bring a couple together.
The pages flew as I picked this one up!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Zondervan, and was not required to give a positive review.
