Today I am reviewing Huckleberry Harvest, by one of my favorite authors, Jennifer Beckstrand.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Anna and Felty Helmuth’s zest for matchmaking is unstoppable — and with grown-up grandchild number three on her way to their home in lovely Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, what better reason to put their talents to work once more?…
When Mandy Helmuth hears that her best friend Kristina’s heart has been broken, she decides to visit her grandparents and cheer her up.
Mandy never liked Noah Mischler anyway, with his rough exterior and outspoken ways. Unfortunately, she can’t avoid him — especially after he saves her life…
If he weren’t helping Felty with home repairs, Noah would be more than happy to stay away from uppity Mandy Helmuth.
Of course, then he wouldn’t have been able to rescue her — and she wouldn’t have had the chance to discover the real Noah beneath the tough persona — the one she falls in love with…

WOW! Just when I think I can guess what Anna’s going to do next — I get a BIG surprise!
Of course, we know how she enjoys matchmaking… and so far she’s been very successful. This time I think it’s possible she was trying a bit too hard — she certainly was surprised when one of the boys she tried to match her granddaughter with wasn’t Amish!
This time Felty steps in and tries his hand at matchmaking! As usual, Anna does her thing, pulling him along for the ride. But this time something’s different! I’d love to tell you more, but I just can’t! You HAVE to read this for yourself!
Huckleberry Hill was awesome, but the sequels just keep getting better and better! I REALLY hope Kensington knows what a GEM they have found in Jennifer Beckstrand! Every book she writes is fresh and original – and just plain fun to read.
Each story is wonderfully different – I don’t know how she does it – and each character is unique, yet fits into the family perfectly! One grandson was determined to not marry; another was eager to marry; yet another had been arrested several times!
As a series, it’s familiar and comfortable, but nothing – except for Anna’s cooking – is the same from book to book. Even Anna’s matchmaking is a little different with each story. It’s a good thing Amish families are so big – Anna and Felty have plenty of grandchildren left for Jennifer to write about!
Jennifer takes you on a wild ride with Anna and Felty. You usually end up in the same place, but you’re a happier person at the end. Read the Huckleberry Hill series… you won’t want to miss a single one!
Don’t miss this amazing series!
