A Path Made Plain By Lynette Sowell

Betsy Yoder lives with her great aunt in Sarasota’s Pinecraft neighborhood, far from her family in Ohio. Heartbroken by a man who left her—and the Order—to marry someone else, Betsy instead pours her time and energy into her bakery, offering the village of Pinecraft delicious desserts from her Amish heritage, and is content in her hard-working yet peaceful life.

Enter the formerly Amish Thaddeus Zook, a pastry chef who has moved to Pinecraft after working in restaurants among the Englisch. While Betsy nurses a hesitant heart, Thaddeus shows a similar hesitancy about rejoining an Amish community. Though neither can deny the attraction between them, Thaddeus is hiding a past that could threaten their future together. Betsy has lost one love already; dare she risk loving another who has adopt Englisch ways? Or will Thad listen to the call of the open road and move on again . . . without the love of his life?

Amish romance with a touch of suspense, what more could we ask for!
This is book number two in the Seasons of Pinecraft series and it was fantastic.
I was captivated from the first chapter to the last. Lynette has the readers on the edge of their seats and the way she portrays the Amish community is like no other.
I was pulling for Betsy and Thad until the very end. I loved the pie eating contest and all of the attention to detail.
This is not a book or author to be missed. This would make a fantastic Christmas gift for the reader on your list!
I have to say this is a 5 star book and I highly recommend this read.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
