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.

Review by Blanche Mancuso
Another one of my favorite authors. Every book I read I know I will love. Plus I have a soft spot for Amish stories. They are fun to read. Having read many books in this series, I really feel like I am part of the family of the Rose Hill Farm. The author paints such a vivid picture of Amish life in a really good way. Amish life is so different from "normal" life but I like how the author writes her characters to adapt so well to this type of lifestyle. This is some good reading. Bess and Billy were so cute together. God does great things for all of the characters in this story.
