Huckleberry Harvest by Jennifer Beckstrand is such a charming book. Anna and Felty Helmuth are matchmaking again. I found Huckleberry Harvest an entertaining and engaging book. It is the fifth book in The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series

Huckleberry Harvest by Jennifer Beckstrand is such a charming book. This time they want to find someone to marry their granddaughter, Mandy Helmuth. It is the fifth book in The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series. I found Kristina's character just a little too bit silly. I found myself wanted to shake some sense into the girl (you will see what I mean when you read the book). I eagerly look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Now Huckleberry Hill just might turn out to be the most romantic spot in Wisconsin. Jennifer Beckstrand is the RITA nominated and award-winning author of the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill and The Honeybee Sisters series, as well as a number of novellas

Now Huckleberry Hill just might turn out to be the most romantic spot in Wisconsin. Lia Shetler is resigned to being a spinster. She's too tall and sturdy to ever be marriageable-so says her overbearing dat. Instead, she's helping her pretty, spoiled sister Rachel secure the perfect husband-the Helmuths' grandson, Moses Zimmerman.

Why did he have to be so handsome? Lia would be able to forget him more easily if acne scars pocked his cheeks or his eyebrows grew as thick as juniper bushes.

Why did he have to be so handsome? Lia would be able to forget him more easily if acne scars pocked his cheeks or his eyebrows grew as thick as juniper bushes chant her so? Sarah said to fetch you right quick, Moses said. She’s just two miles down the road at Millers’. Lia’s hand flew to her mouth. Sarah said she might have to send her to the hospital. Lia glanced at her half-kneaded bread dough on the counter. It would have to wait. I’ll fetch my bag. Will you get Rachel? She’s hanging the wash.

In this first book in a series set in Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, two octogenarian Amish folks try their hands at matchmaking, pairing the quiet and gentle Moses Zimmerman with the tall and sturdy Lia Shetler. (religious fiction). Simultaneous.
I thoroughly enjoyed Jennifer Beckstrand's Apple Creek series, so I expected a lot from Huckleberry Hill. Unfortunately, the book fell flat.

The biggest problem I had with it was the stereotypical nature of many characters, especially Rachel. I knew I wasn't supposed to like her, but often I straight-up hated her and the rest of her family for how they treated Leah. Barring Leah, the family comes across as the domineering, strict stereotypes of Amish life that hurt Amish in fiction and in the real world. As for Leah herself, she had my sympathy but not my engagement. I wanted to make sure she was okay, but she didn't seem like a real or enjoyable person to me.

The romance of this book was flat as well. I understand Jennifer's attempt to create a rivalry between Rachel and Leah, but it felt hackneyed. I also didn't feel as though Noah and Leah had time to truly enjoy each other. Honestly, I often found myself thinking, "Noah, you wimp! Rachel is using you and wringing you out like a bath towel--wake up!" As a writer myself, I'll be the first to tell you it's difficult, sometimes extremely difficult, for a woman to write from a man's POV or perspective. This, however, got on my nerves.

I won't be returning to the Huckleberry Hill series, but I do recommend the Apple Creek trilogy for a much better take on Amish romance.
I loved it! This amazing story is at times poignant, and at other times, funny. Very funny. It also reminded me of a story from Scripture with a couple interesting twists, and was rich with spiritual lessons that a wise woman heard, and a less-than-wise woman heard – and each of them received – well, you’ll see.
Anna and Felty lived at the top of Huckleberry Hill, so named for the hardy, thriving huckleberry bushes with an overabundance of tasty huckleberries. They had so far been blessed with over 60 years of marriage, thirteen children, and many grand and great-grandchildren. Anna, still almost as lively as she was when she was in her 20’s, wanted to spend this new stage of their lives by playing matchmaker for their single grandsons. Felty adored his bride of 60-plus years, and while he didn’t like to meddle, he did like to see his bride happy.
Anna decided to find a bride for their grandson Moses Zimmerman, and believed she found a perfect match when recalling a couple who had housed them when they went to Wautoma for the Bishop’s funeral. They had several children, including adult daughters, so Anna wrote to them and soon had their daughter Lia Shetler in their home. She was so excited when Lia came to “help them” with their housework, cooking, and various chores with their garden and animals (and meet their grandson!). Lia was tall, much taller than many of the young men in their district, but she was also very kind, caring, and hard-working. The grandson who was helping Anna and Felty out, however, had no plans of taking out any young Amish ladies. His heart had been broken by a woman three years ago who left for the world, and he somehow believed that she would return one day. As soon as they met, however, there was friction and banter, which later was more lighthearted than blunt. Moses was one of the fewer men taller than Lia, and he appreciated tall women in a way that her parents did not.
Lia’s younger, shorter, and supposedly more beautiful sister became jealous of Lia when she heard about Moses, and decided she had to go to Huckleberry Hill and stay there with Lia. It sounded as if there were men there she could meet who might be suitable matches than the single men where they lived with their parents. Rachel, however, didn’t really cook or clean, or do anything that might detract from her ‘beauty’, and was willing to climb over her sister to get what she thought she wanted.
Anna and Felty, Lia, Rachel, and Moses were the primary characters. Of these, I like Lia the best. Sharing some of what others saw as her less-valued traits gives me empathy – and shows me some of the areas of growth that I still need. I really like Anna and Felty; their love for each other, their family and friends coupled with wisdom gained over nearly a century of living according to their faith make them a wonderfully attractive couple. The way they laugh at themselves or bring humor to various situations adds much to the story! The story itself is full of surprises and twists – this author always has a surprise or two tucked away that is sure to delight and leave one satisfied and looking forward to their next visit with the Helmuth family.
One thing I really appreciated about Huckleberry Hill is that adults can read and enjoy it, but so can teens! There is nothing in there that I would be concerned about my teenage granddaughter reading, either in language or behaviors. I highly recommend Huckleberry Hill and look forward to future novels in the series.
This book was purchased by me and I reviewed this book without compensation of any kind. All opinions are solely mine.
Great story. It was hilarious most of the time. It was enjoyable to read. This was hard to put down. Very good flow to the story. This author is another one of the best storytellers. I highly recommend this and anything this author writes. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!?
I love reading romantic comedy so when the author described her book as "Amish romantic comedy," I couldn't wait to read it. I absolutely loved this book. There is a lot of humor mixed with some emotional scenes about parents and children and trials and tribulations of life.

Felty and Anna, the matchmaking grandparents, are so funny and touching. Felty reminded me a little of my dad (who passed away in March), who had a great sense of humor, but was a very quiet man who never had a bad word to say about anyone. I play the "license plate game" myself with a guy I work with whenever we see out of state plates when he drives me home from work.

Lia is so nice and funny--if she were my sister, I'd love it and not treat her the way Rachel did. I was so glad that she stood up for herself. I have the same problem and I'm much older. I'm still trying to learn how to do that. My family doesn't make me feel insecure, but other people in my life do. And what can I say about Moses? He was funny and cared so much about Lia, his family, his ex-fiance, and even Rachel.

Rachel--At first I felt sorry for her but as I kept reading, I was ready to strangle her. At first, I hoped she'd get her own book where she changes and meets a good man, but now I just wish she'd get a pie in the face.

This is the part of the review where I usually tell my favorite lines of the book, but there are so many, I can't choose. Some of the scenes I enjoyed most were the one where Anna makes spicy meatballs and Felty says even the president doesn't eat that well. I loved it when he reveals the reason why he never complains about Anna's cooking. I loved the running joke about the pies, and how Moses never gets to try Lia's pies. (And by the way, this is another of Jennifer Beckstrand's books that is making me hungry--I'll have to call my cab driver friend tomorrow to see if he can drive me out to get a pie--LOL).

Speaking of my cab driver friend, (my brother from another mother), Moses kind of reminds me of a taller and younger version of him. I want to go to Wisconsin just so I can meet these wonderful characters!
