‘The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill’ series continues to amaze me! Huckleberry Harvest is the fifth book in this series by Jennifer Beckstrand, and each one is better than the last. This one is funny, poignant, and refreshingly transparent; the author has candidly written about a difficult subject with love and dignity.
Anna and Felty Helmuth have been married for more than six decades, and ‘retired’ (not!) to beautiful acreage on top of Huckleberry Hill. Anna’s current goal is to see all of he

I can not believe I'm late reviewing THIS book! Jennifer - you should smack me.

But seriously... I thought I had already reviewed it. It was only when I went looking for the review that I realized why it wasn't there.

OOPS!

I know I literally say this about every book Jennifer puts out but I seriously think this is my favorite so far!

And... Oh my word how do I write this review without giving anything away...

I don't know how Jennifer does it – I mean she comes up with these wonderful stories that a

MY REVIEW: FIVE STARS * * * * *

The publisher granted me digital access to this book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I received no compensation for reading the book or for posting this review here or on any other site.

I have previously read three of the books from this Amish fiction series called ‘The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill’. I absolutely adore the delightful core characters in this series! Anna and Felty Helmuth are octogenarian grandparents on a mission to find ma

I received my copy of Huckleberry Harvest a little while ago, I didn’t open it right away, it was like a piece of candy that you absolutely love, but savor and save for a few days. I knew what I was going to find once I open the pages, and sure was not disappointed, just didn’t want it to end.
This is Granddaughter Mandy’s story, and Annie and Felty are at it again, of course. Annie has away with cooking, that would bring tears to the eyes of any cast iron stomach, but she is so delightful that p

Have you ever found an author who makes you want more and more of her books to read. Jennifer is one author who pulls you directly into her story from the beginning to the end. In Huckleberry Harvest we continue the matchmaking of Anna with a reluctant Felty. The story main characters are Emma and Ben. Ben broke off their engagement and move to Florida. When the truth finally comes out Faith is what brings them together. If you love stories that keep you reading then The Matchmakers of Huckleber ...more

It is almost impossible for readers not to fall in love with dear grandparents, Anna and Felty Helmuth! She is the world's most horrible cook and avid knitter! He must have lost all ability to taste as he is the only person alive to enjoy her cooking and he has the sweetest disposition. Anna is once again up to her matchmaking with the grandchildren and this time, Mandy, is the target for Cupid's (or Anna's) arrow. The poor unsuspecting fellows are lured to their home with promises of cookies an ...more

The Huckleberry Hill matchmakers are at it again! Anna and Felty Helmuth's granddaughter is visiting for a month, and Anna is determined to find Mandy a husband during that time. Jennifer Beckstrand adds hilarity to a serious plot! Some serious issues arise in this author's latest novel, but I laughed aloud several times as unique humor is interwoven with a complex series of events.
The characters throughout Huckleberry Harvest are colorful and varied, the Amish countryside lush and alive! Noah

WOW! Just when I think I can guess what Anna’s going to do next – I get a BIG surprise!

Of course, we know how she enjoys matchmaking... and so far she’s been very successful. This time I think it’s possible she was trying a bit too hard -- she certainly was surprised when one of the boys she tried to match her granddaughter with wasn’t Amish!

This time Felty steps in and tries his hand at matchmaking! As usual, Anna does her thing, pulling him along for the ride. But this time something's differe

I have never been a believer in a faith or a higher being. However, the more I read of this gentle genre - and most especially of this particular author, the more I wonder. Ms Beckstrand does not hit you over the head with a sledgehammer to get her religious points across, she uses humor, compassion and common sense to make her points AND tell her story.

Also another thing I love about these books and especially this one, is that she takes a very important and timely story-line and sort of mixes

I really enjoyed this book but was very tense regarding what happened between Mandy and Noah - I din't think they would ever get their relationship healed and get together - I was so impressed how Jennifer Beckstrand, the author, brought about the lesson of humility and how important that is in our life and that we don't have to carry burdens by ourselves. We also learned how important it is to not jump to conclusions, give people a chance to explain and listen to the other side of the story. We ...more

If he weren’t helping Felty with home repairs, Noah would be more than happy to stay away from uppity Mandy Helmuth. Of course, then he wouldn’t have been able to rescue her—and she wouldn’t have had the chance

This was a good story. It showed that people are people in every walk of life, and don’t always handle trials healthily. This was the story of Mandy and Noah, and Mandy’s ‘friend’ Kristina. She drove me crazy! I liked that Felty was the matchmaker this time!

Wow! Huckleberry Harvest is another 5 stars book by Jennifer Beckstrand.

Anna and Felty Helmuth's granddaughter, Mandy Helmuth, is in Bouduel, WI to cheer up her friend, Kristina. Mandy believed Kristina about Noah Mischler breaking up with her until gradually the truth is revealed through some very childish antics by Kristina and other friends toward Noah?

Anna is more determined than ever to see that Mandy is married before she goes back to her family in Ohio. Anna takes Felty along as she goe

Mandy is visiting from Charm, Ohio for four weeks (five if Anna has her way). Anna plans to introduce Mandy to every eligible male within 50 miles (at least).

Anna and Felty Helmuth are grandparents who love their grandchildren. They would do anything to make sure that their grandchildren are all happily married to the perfect person. This book is part 5 of the Huckleberry Hill series which takes place in Bonduel, WI. This is an Amish village that I have visited myself which makes the book special for me. This book will be available in May 2015.

Huckleberry Harvest is the best yet of Anna and Felty Helmuth's adventures in matchmaking for their unsuspecting grandchildren. Anna's cooking, knitting, and scheming, along with Felty's subtle cunning provide the setting for a touching story that mixes deep feelings with a healthy dose of humor.

I absolutely LOVE this series. An Amish grandmother who knits like crazy -- in bright colors yet but even her bishop doesn't deny her the pleasure of her many colors. She also delights in find the "perfect" spouse for her grandchildren.

I have to warn you that Mammi is a bad cook. And a delight. I tend to chuckle and laugh out loud while reading about her.

Huckleberry Harvest was a particularly funny installment in the series because Anna has gotten a little too sure of her giftedness in the matchmaking department, so much so that she begins matching her granddaughter Mandy without exactly having a match in mind for her. She completely ignores wise Felty's suggestion and proceeds to bring every eligible young man to Huckleberry Hill to meet Mandy while completely ignoring Noah, the young man Felty keeps hiring to do odd jobs around the house.

This is book 5 in a series, but no need to read the books in order, nor start at the beginning. Grandparents Anna and Felty join forces yet again to make a love match between a beloved young relative and a Bonduel citizen.

The story depicts young love at its sweetest, and mature love at its best. Beckstrand writes with humor, tenderness, and honesty. I love the characters and dialogue, and always, always the adventuresome comedy!

I highly recommend the Huckleberry series for young and old alike,
