Annie Mast and Levi Miller were childhood best friends until his father was shunned. Now, 10 years later, Levi returns to Arthur, Il, and he and Annie discover their bond is as strong as ever. Soon they begin imagining a future together, but that's unlikely to happen. Levi is part of the English world, and Annie is Amish. But together, with love on their side, they may just find their way to an answered prayer.
If not for the strong arm that reached out to break her fall, Annie Mast would have ended up on the ground. As she balanced herself, two kids playing tag uttered a quick apology. Shaking her head at their boisterous play, Annie turned to thank her rescuer and locked gazes with a hazel-eyed man and froze. He was English, and there weren’t many Englishers at the Amish wedding. But that wasn’t what made the words catch in her throat.
She gasped. “Levi? Levi Miller?” Could it be? In her mind she saw the Amish boy, her one and only best childhood friend. Her confidant until that terrible day.
He gently released his hold on her. But they continued to regard each other, taking in how more than ten years had changed their appearances. Even though he’d taken his hand from her arm, his warmth still penetrated her skin and traveled up to her shoulder.
A man’s touch wasn’t proper, but he’d rescued her. All the same, the result was reassuring, and she was sure she would never forget the comforting sensation. For an awkward moment they regarded each other with curiosity. The sudden lack of words took her by surprise, but then, they hadn’t crossed paths for nearly a decade.
Still, it didn’t matter. Directly in front of her stood the dear boy she’d trusted years ago.
Annie’s Recipe is the second book I have read by Lisa Jones Baker and hopefully not the last. This book was a delight to read a break from my normal read of the hot steamy sex. When I think of an Amish female I imagine a quiet, tranquil female, but Annie is none of that she is a very strong female who is not afraid to speak her mind and does she. I loved watching Annie and Levi rekindle their friendship after Levi being gone from the Amish community for ten years due to his father’s shunning from the church. Watching that friendship blossoming to more. If you are looking for a sweet clean romance I recommend you pick up a copy of one of Lisa Jones Baker’s book.
