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?
