Huckleberry Harvest | Jennifer Beckstrand

 

MATCHMAKERS OF HUCKLEBERRY HILL MARATHON

Today I am reviewing Huckleberry Harvest, the fifth book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series by the very talented 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…

MY THOUGHTS:

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!

 

God bless you!

Huckleberry Spring – Book 4

Huckleberry Spring
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.

Huckleberry Harvest – Book 5

Huckleberry Harvest Cover
Mandy Helmuth doesn’t like Noah Mischler.Not one little bit. First he breaks her best friend’s heart, and then he has the nerve to chastise her for being a busybody.

She feels quite justified in her dislike until Noah does something heroic, like save her life, and she’s forced to bestow her grudging respect even as she determines to keep her distance. But when she unwittingly stumbles into his family troubles, she catches a glimpse of the person Noah so successfully hides from others.

Will Mandy be able to look past Noah’s rough and unyielding exterior to see the man she is destined to love?

Much to Noah Mischler’s annoyance, uppity Mandy Helmuth thinks she has the right to tell him how to live his life. If he weren’t helping Mandy’s grandfather install a stove and fix his roof, Noah wouldn’t be within a mile of Huckleberry Hill or that nosy girl who gives him a lecture every time she opens her mouth.

But when Mandy discovers the horrible truth about his father, Noah is forced to reveal humiliating secrets that he’s never shared with anyone. He trusts her with his secrets, but can he trust her with his heart?
