Huckleberry Harvest by Jennifer Beckstrand

My book  review today is Huckleberry Harvest, the next fifth book in The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill. This book is an Advance Readers Copy so it isn't available yet but you can preorder it. I loved this book and the whole series. Jennifer's books are well written, very humorous, but heart warming. They will touch your heart. In this book you see how an honorable Amish man tries to deal with and alcoholic dat. A hard situation in anyone's culture but unthinkable in an Amish community. Jennifer handles the problem in a touching way. I know you will love this book.

Anna and Felty Helmuth are  caught unprepared for their granddaughter's visit. Mandy is coming to stay with them for one month. Anna has no idea who to match Mandy with, Felty thinks Noah Mischler would be a good match but Anna thinks he is to sad for Mandy. Anna devises a plan, she goes throughout the district and invites all the eligible boys to visit, bribing them with knitted potholders. Felty buys a new stove and has Noah come to install it and then fix his roof.

Mandy comes to visit her grandparents because her best friend is brokenhearted because her boyfriend broke up with her through a text. Mandy has to come and fix the problem. No man should break up over a text. What kind of Amish boy texts anyway? He was baptized for heaven sakes. But why does he have to look so good and have all those muscles?

Noah meets the beautiful Mandy when she comes to his door and yells at him for breaking the heart of her best friend, Kristina. Although he slams the door in her face he is intrigued by her freckles. As he works at Felty's he is drawn to the nosy beauty. How can he keep her out of his business when he can't keep her out of his head?

I love this story of two people who are trying to serve God in the only way they no how but God's plan doesn't seem to be working for them. God makes a way where there seems to be no way.


  1. Glenda, you are awesome. I love this review. I love seeing what messages different readers get from the same book. You hit the nail on the head with many of the things I was trying to convey. So glad you liked it.

  2. Glad you liked the review. I love your work and like to feel like I'm helping you a little along the way. You reap what you sow, so if I can help others then others will help me. God is so good that way.
