The Amish Cooking Class (The Seekers: Book 1 of Amish Cooking Class) by Wanda E. Brunstetter

Book Description:  Heidi Troyer cooks up the idea of teaching classes in the art of Amish cuisine in her Holmes County, Ohio, home. But is it a recipe for drama when five very different men and women answer the advertisement?
Join a class of unlikely Ohioans who take cooking lessons at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm. A woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower make up the mismatched lot of students.
Class members share details of their disappointing lives, work to solve a mystery, and stir some romance into the pot. Soon Heidi’s cooking lessons turn into life lessons as they each share their challenges. . .and their souls are healed one meal at a time. Is this what God had in mind when Heidi got the idea for cooking classes?

My Thoughts:  I was so excited to receive Wanda Brunstetter's newest book, The Seekers.  This new "series" of the Amish Cooking Class is SOOO good!  And the recipes at the back of the book are great, too.
The Amish Cooking Class is actually about an Amish woman, Heidi Troyer, who can cook well and she decides to open a class for those who need to learn to cook.  To be in the class one does not have to be Amish. 
The students are a mix of unlikely people. 
The class members not only learn to cook but they share life experiences with these in the class. And they solve a mystery.
I LOVE this read!  And can't wait for the next one.
If you are a lover of Amish fiction mixed with wisdom and mystery, then this is the book for you!
And this makes for a great Valentine's present for that reader on your list!
