Publisher Synopsis: Now that they’ve happily married off two of their grandchildren, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next matchmaking challenge. What better way to celebrate the most heartwarming of seasons–and make Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, the place for unexpected love. . .
A difficult marriage has left the Helmuths’ widowed great-granddaughter, Beth, finished with wedlock. She’s content to live with them and make a life for herself and her toddler son. But once she turns down handsome Tyler Yoder’s proposal, it seems only fair to encourage him to find a suitable wife. Trouble is, his gentleness and generous ways are showing her how joyous a real meeting of hearts can be. . .
After a failed courtship, Tyler thought the best he could hope for in a wife was mere companionship. But spirited Beth is the one he longs to protect, and hold close. Earning her trust is the hardest thing he’s ever had to do. And soon, both will discover that forgiveness and understanding are gifts that only rekindled faith–along with the happiest of holidays–can bring.
My Take: I hope you can handle one more Christmas book because this one is delightful. This sweet love story is a tangle of grandparent interference, misunderstandings and love. I especially liked the light-hearted manner in which Jennifer Beckstrand writes. Huckleberry Christmas is a definite feel-good read. This is the third book in her Matchmaker series, but it’s a stand-alone even though most of the characters are from the previous two books.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
