Huckleberry Spring | Jennifer Beckstrand Marathon

Today I’m reviewing Huckleberry Spring, the fourth book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series by Jennifer Beckstrand, an amazing, wonderful, multi-talented author.


Here is the synopsis for Huckleberry Spring:

Nothing gives Anna and Felty Helmuth greater satisfaction than seeing their grandchildren happily married–except for planning their next matchmaking venture.

And as springtime comes to Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, the air is filled with promise. . .

Ever since the Helmuths’ grandson, Ben, abruptly broke his engagement and moved to Florida, Emma Nelson has kept busy tending her vegetable garden and raising award-winning pumpkins.

She can put her heartache aside to help Ben’s Mammi with her own pumpkin patch.

At least until Ben shows up to lend support to his ailing Dawdi. . .

Gardening side by side with pretty, nurturing Emma is a sweet kind of torture for Ben. She could have her pick of suitors who can offer what he can’t, and he cares too much to burden her with his secret.

Leaving once more is the only option.

Yet Emma’s courage is daring him to accept the grace that flourishes here, and the love that has been calling him back to Huckleberry Hill…


Exciting… wonderful… awesome…

Receiving a copy of Huckleberry Spring from Jennifer was such a huge blessing — and I count it as one of my best Christmas gifts!

… and it will be available February 2015!

I’m going to do my best to not give away anything — well, not much. Because I want all my readers to enjoy this book every bit as much as I did.

I gotta confess, when my daughter asked me why I wasn’t laughing halfway through the book, I might have (un)intentionally led her to believe some things were or were not happening in the story… I really can’t say what… but she really shouldn’t have asked about it.

Whenever she asks me how a book (or movie) turns out, I usually tell her the main character either broke up, ran away or died — and whichever I pick, she won’t know until she finishes the book (or movie). More often than not it isn’t true; once in a blue moon I tell the truth, so she never knows when to believe me! I can’t believe she still asks, but she does… so I might have misled her — just a teensy bit.

I don’t like to give anything away… okay?

And there’s a lot to not give away in this book — because…


Jennifer is amazing! She creates the most wonderful characters!

Poor Emma… after falling in love with Ben (Anna and Felty’s grandson) and planning for a wedding after he proposes, she finds it impossible to get over the pain and move on — after he breaks their engagement — and her heart!

Anna has no idea why Ben broke his engagement to Emma, nor why he ran off to Florida to live afterwards. But she’s determined to get them back together, no matter what it takes — just ask Felty!

OK, no more hints… you’ll love this story; it’s wonderful — absolutely wonderful!



Huckleberry Harvest is the next story — and is scheduled to come out next year…
