Huckleberry Hearts

The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill, #6

I fell in love with Annie “Bananie” and Felty Helmuth, characters in Jennifer Beckstrand’s “Huckleberry Hill” series. The latest one to catch my fancy is “Huckleberry Hearts”. This was written with a twist because Annie and Felty are matchmaking for their granddaughter, Cassie, who has decided not to be baptized in the Amish faith, much to the consternation of her mother and brothers. However, Annie finds the perfect match for Cassie in her doctor, Zach. She and Felty scheme and connive to get the two of them together all the while having to match wits with Cassie’s mother and brother’s attempts to get Cassie back into the Amish fold.

I love this old couple who dearly love one another and cannot stand to see one of their grandchildren not be in love and married. Their antics are a source of reading pleasure for me and I have enjoyed every one of Ms. Beckstrand’s books in this series. You won’t be disappointed if you pick up a copy of her books and especially this one. I loved it.


Book Blurb for Huckleberry Hearts

Young-at-heart octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never miss the chance to find a perfect match for one of their grandchildren. And when their beloved Cassie returns to Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, Anna has a feeling they might soon have a doctor in the family…

Though Cassie Coblenz left her Amish community to go to college, Mammi and Dawdi’s farm will always feel like home. It’s the ideal place for an extended study break—at least until her grandmother’s handsome Englisch doctor becomes a regular distraction. Zach Reynolds is the kind of heartbreaker Cassie has learned to avoid, no matter how charming he may be.

Unlike every woman Zach has met in recent years, Cassie doesn’t fall at his feet. Strong, generous, beautiful within and without —she’s everything he could want. Yet the gulf between them deepens when a tragedy shakes his faith. Now the good doctor has one goal—to become a man who could be worthy of Cassie’s love…
