Just when Amish fiction readers think Jennifer
Beckstrand could not possibly top her last Huckleberry
Hill series book, Jennifer writes Huckleberry Harvest (Zebra Books) and proves readers
wrong. Huckleberry Harvest just may be the best book written by Jennifer
Beckstrand so far. Yes, it is simply that good. This book is filled with humor,
romance, Grandma Anna’s crazy cooking, and Grandpa Felty’s quiet wisdom in
matchmaking. This is book five in the Huckleberry Hill series. Each book in the
series definitely stands on its own, and each book is worth reading, for sure
and for certain. Please keep writing Jennifer Beckstrand!

The story begins with Anna and Felty’s
granddaughter, Mandy, who lives in Ohio, coming to Huckleberry Hill to visit
them and her friend, Kristina. Right away, Kristina wants Mandy to go to
Kristina’s ex-boyfriend, Noah Mischler’s house, to yell at him for breaking off
their relationship. That conversation doesn’t go too well when Noah tells Mandy
she doesn’t know anything and shows no remorse for leading Kristina on in the

Grandpa Felty hired Noah Mischler to help repair
some odds and ends around the house so Mandy has to put up with Noah hanging
around every day. Surprisingly, as rude as Noah was to Mandy previously, he now
couldn’t be nicer or more polite. Plus Noah is one of the most handsome men
that Mandy has ever met. What Mandy doesn’t know is that Noah is hiding a

Meanwhile, Anna and Felty have rounded up all
the eligible bachelors in the area to parade in front of Mandy. Anna has knit a
potholder for each bachelor and gives each a piece of pie that Mandy has made.
Mandy could not be less interested in any of the men. Of course, Anna is not deterred;
she just went out and got more bachelors. Anna will not stop until she makes a
successful match for her granddaughter, Mandy, and somehow, Anna gets Mandy set
up on dates with numerous young men.

is just plain fun. Jennifer writes convincingly of the
antics of Grandma Anna. Every young person should have grandparents like Anna
and Felty: caring, funny, a little crazy,
and always in your corner. This book also deals with addiction and abuse in a
sensitive and compassionate manner. There is no situation too big for God to
help us handle. Huckleberry Harvest was published May 26, 2015.
