Book Summary

As the most joyful holiday draws near, three couples discover the recipe for love includes faith, hope, and the sweetest blessings...


When carpenter Aden returns to Lancaster after twenty years away, bakeshop owner Rebecca is dismayed to find he's still as handsome and kind as ever. He broke her heart when he left the community back then. Will a holiday emergency provide a second chance at love, this time forever?

When a lonely widower with a sick daughter and a new cake decorator meet at the bakeshop, they discover they were once childhood playmates. But as each of them helps the other care for family, their neighborly kindness inspires a gift that only love could make possible...

A builder who never learned to read believes he must hide his fond feelings for a kind schoolteacher. But after they run into each other at the bakeshop, she offers to teach him--and as Christmas approaches, each of them learns a lesson about the great gift of love...
My Thoughts

Christmas at the Amish Bakeshop contains three Amish Christmas tales by Shelley Shepard Gray, Rachel J. Good, and Loree Lough.  I enjoyed reading these three novellas that revolve around Rebecca’s Porch, a bakeshop in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  I thought each story was well-written with friendly, relatable characters.  I loved the characters in each story with my favorite being Rebecca and Aden in A Christmas Cake for Rebecca.  This is a cute story that has friends helping each other in time of need, humor, and a man showing his love.  Best Christmas Present Ever by Rachel J. Good is such a sweet story. We get to see that people and animals matter more than making money.  It was wonderful to see Lizzie find her place and blossom.  The Christmas Cupcake by Loree Lough is a little darker than the other two stories in the beginning.  I like how Tess’s brother, Noah aids Asher is wooing Tess.  There are many tasty treats mentioned in the three novellas.  The delectable descriptions will have your mouth watering.  Christmas at the Amish Bakeshop is a collection of stories that is perfect for fans of Amish fiction and those who enjoy wholesome Christmas stories.   Christmas at the Amish Bakeshop has three heartwarming tales about a second chance romance, dropped dishes, wearisome walnuts, fretting over finances, a reading worry, Christmas cakes, a frustrating father, and God’s Grace.
