The Gift of Love

The Bake Shop

Book Description

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 Jeff Stoltzfus. When Jeff 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 Jeff uses the building’s electricity to personalize his items. He tells Christiana that Jeff is too modern for her, and she’s forbidden from dating him. Christiana is crushed, but she knows she must obey her father.

When Jeff’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 Jeff despite his mistakes. Though the odds are against them, can two young people find a way to rebuild both their businesses and their relationship?

 

The Making of The Bake Shop

I’m so excited to readers to pick up a copy of The Bake Shop and meet the characters who are featured in my new Amish Marketplace. This series was inspired by my Amish friend and her daughters who used to work at a market. I dedicated this book to my older brother, Eric Goebelbecker.
