Christmas at Rose Hill Farm- Book Review
Christmas at Rose Hill Farm
Back of the Book:
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.

While Bess is preparing a wedding her heart is torn because she is secretly smitten with an old love, Billy Lapp. However, she has found a good man, Amos Lapp who loves her, is kind and a hardworking guy. The problem is, Bess can't stop thinking about Billy. She has found a real dilemma on her hands when Billy comes back into Stoney Ridge to help with a lost rose. As the history of the rose is discovered, Billy, Bess and Amos discover that miracles still do exist. This book is a great Christmas read and I love the dynamics of the book. With the fall turning cold here in Michigan, Christmas books are the perfect read when its cold, especially with a warm cup of cider in my hand. This is a great book and it appeals to many different readers. 5 stars in my book! Thank you Litfuse for allowing me to review this book for my honest review.
