A Lancaster County Christmas by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Published by Revell books

Jaime Fitzpatrick was at the doctor for a prescription refill, when she met Mattie and Sol Riehl, and their son, Danny.  The doctor she saw, wasn't her regular doctor, and she was a little aggravated when he asked her to stop on her way out of town and return Danny Riehl's toy he had accidentally left at the office, giving her explicit directions to their home.
A snow storm was about to hit, and Jaime and her husband were due to meet her father and go on a Christmas cruise with him.  She hurries up to to the Riehl home, surprised at it's beautiful simplicity.  As she gets out of her car, with her husband in tow, the car starts going down the hill, and backs into the pond.  Stuck at the Riehl home on Christmas  when the blizzard hits, she and her husband, C. J, had to accept the hospitality of the Amish family, and find they have more in common than she would have thought.

194 pages, so it is a quick read, and as usual, Suzanne Woods Fisher has come up with a fantastic story. Another Author that has yet to disappoint me with anything she has written. A 5 Star book.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  No other compensation was given.  I'm not required to give a positive review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

That sounds like a good book, Jettie. I cannot tell you the amount of times poeple ended up staying at our house in a snow storm when they would get "lost" in the hills between the two little towns that flanked the mountains. My mother always fed everyone and they stayed a day or two. I'll bet this is a great story! xo Diana

Hi Jettie! Thanks so much for your wonderful review of "A Lancaster County Christmas!" So glad you are expecting my work to not disappoint you! I will keep that in mind and do my very best, Jettie. If I ever do write a bomb, you have my permission to slap me silly. Hope you'll be on my next tour! Warmly, Suzanne Woods fisher
