The Bake Shop, The Farm Stand, The Coffee Corner, The Jam and Jelly Nook
All four novels from the beloved Amish Marketplace series are now available in one collection by bestselling author Amy Cliptson.
The Bake Shop
Christiana Kurtz loves to bake, but when her bake stand becomes too busy, her mother encourages her to move her business to the local market. Her new bake shop becomes so inundated with customers that the line blocks the leather and woodcraft shop next door, which is run by Jeffrey Stoltzfus. When Jeffrey complains that her stand is driving away business due to the lines, she complains to him that his personalization machine smells. Though their relationship starts off on bad footing, they eventually forge a friendship.
When Jeffrey’s shop catches fire one day, he puts the entire market in jeopardy—including Christiana’s bake shop. Though the odds are against them, can two young people find a way to rebuild both their businesses and their relationship?
