Book Description
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.

Join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember. Filled with heart-twisting moments amid the sweet anticipation of love, this story will charm readers into the holiday spirit.
Book Review
  I have a confession to make. I am OBSESSED with Christmas. I am the type of person who will watch a Hallmark Christmas movie marathon in the middle of July. It's just such a sweet and sentimental time of year. I mean, who DOESN'T love Christmas? Christmas books are a one of my more extreme weaknesses. I just can't turn them down! I have ZERO self control when I see a Christmas title written by a well known christian author. This book was no different. "Christmas at Rose Hill Farm" is just a precious little novel. I loved the storyline. It was so neat to see how something as small as a rose could affect the entire story. It's quite original. The characters were interesting, and the setting was very relaxing. This is a good book to read before heading to bed. It's not super intense. It's slow and steady, while still keeping the reader's attention. My only complaint would be the lack of depth. There weren't many sub stories to enhance the overall reading experience, and I think that if it had contained a few more sub plots it would have greatly bettered the story in general. Overall it was a cute little book that I look forward to rereading during future holiday seasons.
