Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The beloved characters Shelley Shepard Gray created for her bestselling Seasons of Sugarcreek series are back in Christmas in Sugarcreek--a heartwarming story of the magic of Christmastime and the blossoming of an unlikely love in a close-knit Amish community. Obedient daughter Judith Graber finds herself becoming uncomfortably enamored of the help her father has hired to assist in the store during the holidays: Ben Knox, as scandalous a bad boy as they come in staid and quiet Sugarcreek. Author of the immensely popular Sisters of the Heart novels, Shelley Shepard Gray is one of the true masters of Amish inspirational fiction, and Christmas in Sugarcreek is a delightful holiday treat for all lovers of Christian romance--especially fans of Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, and Cindy Woodsmall.

Dutiful shopkeeper's daughter Judith Graber didn't think that bad boy Ben Knox even knew who she was. Working together in her father's Amish store during the holiday rush, he treats Judith with the caring and consideration she craves.

Library Journal Review

Love is in the air in Gray's fourth series entry (after Autumn's Promise). Dutiful shopkeeper's daughter Judith Graber didn't think that bad boy Ben Knox even knew who she was. Working together in her father's Amish store during the holiday rush, they learn that they've each admired special qualities in the other since they were schoolmates. Judith's big family and other Sugarcreek residents are lovingly portrayed in this feel-good winner. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Publishers Weekly Review

Goody-two-shoes Judith Graber has always helped out in her parents' store, gotten good grades in school, and pitched in at home, but has never felt like anyone was looking out for her. When hometown bad boy Benjamin Knox comes back and starts working at the store, he treats Judith with the caring and consideration she craves. An Amish community backdrop adds homespun sweetness, with a focus on simplicity and family that's never heavy-handed. Fans of Gray's Seasons of Sugarcreek novels will especially appreciate the cameos by familiar characters, but new readers will have no trouble starting the series here. (Nov.)
