“Huckleberry Spring” by Jennifer Beckstrand is the fourth novel in this series. I have also ready “Huckleberry Hill” and “Huckleberry Summer”. Each book is a story about the matchmaking escapades of Felty and Anna Helmuth. Anna is determined to see each of her grandchildren happily married and takes it upon herself, with the reluctant help of her husband, Felty. Each book has been a joy to read because of the humorous antics of these two elderly matchmakers.
I recommend this book and the series.
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. . .
