Bess Riehl is preparing Rose Hill Farm for her Christmas wedding, but her groom isn't who she thought it would be. Billy Lapp is far away from his Amish roots working as a rose rustler for Penn State and wants nothing to do with Stoney Ridge, his family, or Bess. And that suits Bess just fine. Why should she think twice about a man who left without a word, without any explanation? It's time she moved on with her life, and that meant saying yes to Amos Lapp, Billy's cousin and best friend. But as Bess and Amos's wedding day draws near, her emotions tangle into a tight knot. She loves Amos. Yet she can't forget Billy.
When a "lost" rose is discovered at Rose Hill Farm, Billy is sent to track down its origins. Get in, identify the rose, and get out. That's his plan. The only catch is that he's having a hard time narrowing down the identity of the lost rose, and he can't get those tropical blue eyes of Bess Riehl out of his mind.
As the history of the lost rose is pieced together, it reminds Bess and Billy--and Amos, too--that Christmas truly is the season of miracles.
Christmas at Rose Hill Farm by Suzanne Woods Fisher is a heartwarming Christmas read that definitely got me into the mood for Christmas. (Seriously, I had a hard time keeping myself from pulling out my Christmas records). But really Christmas at Rose Hill was a really sweet short read that certainly had its moments. The only thing I didn't really like was the whole love triangle thing, I've never been a fan of that. But other than that I loved the characters, they were all very likable and overall I enjoyed this read.
4.5 out of 5. So grab you favorite hot beverage and settle in for a sweet Afternoon Snack.
