Huckleberry Hearts by Jennifer Beckstrand (review by Cathy)

Huckleberry Hearts


About the book

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…

“Full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs.” –Publishers Weekly

My review

Jennifer Beckstrand takes us back to Huckleberry Hill in the 6th book in The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill. It’s always a pleasure for me to return to this place that I’ve grown so fond of. I found myself looking forward to catching up with Felty and Anna Helmuth.

The characters that Jennifer has created are simply delightful and charming and her ability to combine humor and warmth are why I’ve come to love this series.

This time around Anna and Felty are playing matchmaker for their granddaughter, Cassie Coblenz. As always they have the perfect young man in mind. As usual Anna and Felty will go to great lengths to do what they can to ensure the happiness of their beloved grandchildren.

In my opinion that strong message of selflessness in this series is prevalent as the Matchmakers set out to help their family find love. Sure, they go about it in way that will make you laugh out loud at their antics, but it’s always done out of love.

A definite 5 star book

I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
