The Christmas Remedy by Cindy Woodsmall and Erin Woodsmall

The Christmas Remedy is a quick, cozy holiday read by Cindy Woodsmall and her daughter Erin. The interesting thing about this book is that it mixes Amish characters and English characters. It's always a nice treat to get the best of both worlds. Holly Noelle is also attempting to have the best of both worlds as she is a member of the Amish church, but she also has a job outside of the home as a pharmacy tech. Holly longs to make a difference and teach the Amish how important medicine and doctors are. Her mentor, a pharmacist named Lyle, is also an advocate for the Amish, but he has to take a back row seat when he has a health scare. Holly and Lyle must seek help to keep the pharmacy running and they both get the chance to mend broken relationships with very important people in their lives.

The cover of The Christmas Remedy is beautiful, eye-catching, and immediately interesting. I would have preferred even more Christmas spirit in this book as I feel like this could almost be read any time of year. The book focuses more on the pharmacy and medicine field than it does on the holiday. I did appreciate the medical aspect and felt like this book was well researched and brings awareness to a very important topic. I am thankful to be chosen as a launch team member for this book and look forward to reading more books by the Woodsmall ladies.
