Huckleberry Hill Reviews


Huckleberry Hill-1

“I loved this book. No, that’s not right: I fell in love with this book to the point that when it ended, I went back and reread some chapters, a few scenes, and sighed and laughed all over again. The author has given us a funny romantic story that is never overdone. The laughs flow naturally from the story and the characters’ personalities and interactions. Nothing is exaggerated for the purpose of being funny; it is a nice Amish equivalent to a romantic comedy. Huckleberry Hill is a witty, smart and very romantic sort of retelling of Jacob’s, Rachel’s and Leah’s love triangle in Genesis, but with a big twist, which made it very interesting and refreshing. I read it with a smile on my face. It’s delightful, full of joy, romance, sweet wisdom and great laughter.” ~

“I finished this book laughing out loud! I adore the humor that Lia and Moses share in their rocky relationship. This is a delightful book. I could not help but chuckle at Moses’ grandparents in their matchmaking scheming. Now I am anxiously awaiting the release of Huckleberry Summer in 2014.” ~

“It’s always refreshing to read a novel where the main characters are thoroughly nice people. Generally, it’s easy to identify with one character or another, but to like and admire both characters equally is a rare quality. In the end, Huckleberry Hill is brimming over with funny, heartwarming scenes, and it features a loyal hero and a sweet heroine deserving of love. “ ~

4 1/2 Stars from Romantic Times Book Reviews: “Beckstrand has written a sweet romance with a lot of heart that offers a new, refreshing take on the overused matchmaking trope. The storyline is feasible, the characters are well written, with both their strengths and weaknesses on display. Readers will treasure this series and put the first outing on their keeper shelf.”~

“Huckleberry Hill is a sweet, fresh story of friendship and love. The grandparents’ matchmaking efforts are hilarious. Moses’ and Lia’s banter is clever and sharp. Rachel’s character development as the bratty, spoiled, black-hearted sister is very well done. I appreciated the excellently written dialogue and easy flow to the story. Huckleberry Hill is the first book in a series of three. I recommend it for the peaceful Amish setting, great writing and breath of fresh air perspective on love. ” ~

“Anna and Felty Helmuth are a delightful pair of Amish grandparents. From the opening paragraphs these magnetic eighty-something-year-old characters had my full attention. This new and refreshing Amish matchmaker series promises to be a joy-filled ride. Be prepared, as this is a book that is a page-turner. I didn’t want to put it down.” ~

“This is a warm romance with two likable main character, a spoiled sister that will drive readers crazy, and ultimately a great ending for all!” ~

“Moses is such an honorable man and his love and admiration for Lia makes me love him even more. Their relationship starts as a friendship but quickly blooms into something more. This romance was not one that was hard to believe, but was written so realistically that by the time I finished reading I could have sworn I had just met these two people. I got to see a little into both of their lives and was happy to meet both of their families, even though I was not so crazy about Lia’s sister, Rachel! This book was a delightful start to a brand new series!” ~

“Jennifer is a great writer and you will quickly dive into the drama in the book – a broken leg, broken hearts, midwifery, and a selfish sister. If you’re looking for a great Amish love story, definitely get Huckleberry Hill! And the best part is Anna and Felty will be at it again in Jennifer’s second book Huckleberry Summer that’s coming out in June. So excited!” ~

“Huckleberry Hill, One of Christian Fiction Examiner’s must-read books for the new year. “ ~
