    2. Annie's Recipe book two from the Hope Chest of Dreams series. I enjoyed the first story in the series but enjoyed this one so much more. Looking forward to reading the third book, Rachel's Dream when it releases. Five stars


    3. ExcerptThe small brown freckle under Annie’s right eye that he’d teased her about as a kid had developed into something of a beauty mark. It belonged there. To Levi’s dismay, his pulse picked up speed. He wanted more time with her. She was of Rumspringa age, so she could do non-Amish things. But that would only be for a couple of years, not forever.Behind them, Aunt Abigail followed in a separate buggy with Aidan and Elijah. As Levi glanced back at Jake, the kid responded with a big grin. [...]


    4. I have a new author and I for sure love her writing style. I like this book because it brings fantasy to a crashing halt forcing reality to come back into focus.I enjoy reading Amish novels especially if they have certain life messages like this one does.In this book Annie talks to Levi about how you cant just take the good and not the bad. Life isnt fair but then it wasn't meant to be.Annie also points out how we are meant to be at a certain place in a certain time.I like Annie. She's very wise [...]


    5. First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, ANNIE'S RECIPE is a sweet romance about two friends (best friends) who reconnected after ten years apart. Now, seeing each other at a wedding, the two friends reconnect and spend time together, rehashing the past and falling back into the same easy friendship they had as children. There isn't any sexual tension between the characters, so readers and fans who like things chaste and sweet would lo [...]

    7. Hope chests are so special. I never had the pleasure of owning own myself, except for a very small cedar one that a local furniture shop gifted to every senior girl upon our high school graduation. I treasured that little chest and kept special things in ite hand-tatted handkerchief that my grandmother made, love letters from my husband from our dating days, etc. Sam makes hand-carved ones with special meaning for each recipient. Annie and her sisters have made it their mission to minister to Sa [...]


    8. 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 [...]

    11. Annie's Recipe is a sweet story that will tug at your heartstrings. Annie and Levi were the best of friends as children, but that ended abruptly when his father was shunned and the family moved away. When Levi returns to Arthur, Illinois for a wedding they reconnect and it opens up new possibilities for both of them.What caught me off guard a bit with this story was how much focus was placed on simply these two characters. So much of the Amish fiction I read gives you an entire community feeling [...]

    14. I have been anxiously waiting to sit down and write this review. Annie's Recipe is the second book I have read by Lisa Jones Baker and I know it won't be my last. First, I love the character depth that the reader gets to view as they get front row seats to Annie and Levi. While they were the best of childhood friends and then something happens, which I won't ruin, the reader is invited on a journey. One of the unique aspects of this book, is how strong willed and how much faith Annie has despite [...]


    15. I loved the sweet romance of Annie and her long lost friend Levi in Annie's Recipe. I was so glad they got the chance to meet again. So many unanswered questions needed to be resolved. I could understand the worry that would cause with the family and the close knit community though. Annie is loved in the community and she cares deeply for family and friends. I loved following along with her story. There were great descriptions on the way of life and the countryside. I actually loved the lot the [...]


    16. Author Lisa Jones Baker allows us into the world of the Amish community with her understanding of their customs. I think the only thing she could have done “better” was to use some of the Pennsylvania Dutch language to make it more plausible. That said, it is a great book that moves quickly and holds your interest.I really had trouble putting this down. I couldn’t figure out what would happen. Would Levi return to the Amish life? Would Annie, because of her deep love for Levi, become Engli [...]


    17. I really liked this Amish book. It is the story of Annie and Levi. They were school age friends who enjoyed each others company. They loved going to Pebble Creek. Levi's father got shunned and they left in a hurry and they never got to say goodbye. Ten years later Levi attends a wedding and they meet. It is a story of two different worlds. One Amish and and one English. They fall in love but there cultures hold them back because they do not want to leave there world and what they were raised in. [...]


    18. Recipe for romance! Lisa Jones Baker has truly written a very delightful story. Annie is very true to her Amish faith, Levi is torn because of his family's past experiences. Suddenly a life changing event happens and brings many feelings and heartfelt truths to the surface. Will Levi and Annie be able to weather the differences between their families and find their love for one another. It is as uncertain as tossing a Pebble in a Creek. Lisa, thank you for the opportunity to read and offer a hon [...]


    19. Before Annie's Recipe, I had never read an Amish story, but I found it very interesting learning about the Amish traditions. Annie and Levi are endearing and realistic characters with honest emotions, and I fell right into their world. The young couple were best friends, falling in love, when they were separated. Now, ten years later, they have come back into each others lives. I especially like how they shared their emotions with each other and with God. I definitely recommend Annie's Recipe to [...]


    20. Annie’s Recipe by Lisa Jones Baker is the second book in the Hope Chest of Dreams series. Annie Mast and Levi Miller were childhood best friends. Then one day Levi was gone. Levi’s father, John, had broken the rules of the Ordnung and was shunned. John quickly packed up his family and moved away.

They agree to meet at their special p [...]



    21. An engaging story about two childhood best friends who meet after ten years of separation and fall in love. A beautiful love story!


    22. Grab some tissues for Annie's Recipe. Annie and Levi had been childhood friends until Levi's father was shunned and left their Amish community. Annie and Levi prayed for one another but hadn't seen each other until Levi returned 10 years later for his cousin's wedding. Their past friendship had never died and the attraction was there, but Annie was Amish and Levi living in the English world. The characters are well developed with issues that caused many questions and conversations with others an [...]


    23. Annie looked at her childhood best friend Levi. They were at an Amish wedding which tended to be long. It had been ten years since Levi and Annie had seen each other. Levi would only be around a couple days as his father needed his help. Levi’s father had been shunned and they had left and no longer lived among the Amish. and that is why Levi and Annie hasn’t seen each other for ten years. Levi had come back because it was his cousin’s wedding. Levi and Annie spent the next day together an [...]


    24. Annie and Levi were friends as children and now are able to reconnect as adults. Enjoyed their story as they work toward resolving the Amish and English world differences to find their pathway together. Good second book in the Hope Chest series. Looking forward to the next book.Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.

    26. This book is so romantic it made me want to get a nice comfy cozy blanket into a warm sunroom - live in a warm state - get a cup of hot chocolate and crawl into a ball and read this book. That is how it makes you feel, they are lovely people who have found each other again and are trying to figure out if that road leads back love that they once had. Do they find it? what happens to Annie and Levi? Your heart is truly touched by these two. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange [...]

All at once, after ten years, there he was right in front of her. He was here only for a brief visit, but while he was back in Arthur he an Annie rekindled their friendship. Many of our [...]
