Huckleberry Summer Reviews



“Beckstrand’s solid second novel…is a strong example of the Amish romance genre. [The] straightforward story is full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs.” ~ Publishers Weekly

“I love the Amish books and this book is one of the best I’ve read. It’s very well written, the characters were delightful, the story will make you laugh, and it’ll make you cry. You will love this book.” ~ Glenda Parker

“This series, The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill is so much fun. There is plenty of humor in this series as well as delicious romance, conflict, and character growth. Huckleberry Summer combines wonderful character development with humor, a dog, and unique subject matter in the Amish genre to deliver a can’t-put-down novel. Beckstrand’s writing is simply beautiful, ranging from at times humorous and uplifting to emotional and melancholy.” ~ Gloria Johnson |

“This is an absolutely darling new series. Lily is delightful as she struggles with her attraction to bad-boy (Amish-style) Aden, while remaining obedient to her father. Aden’s grandparents are a hoot, with their determination to marry him off, and their creativity in making sure he and Lily get together will make you chuckle out loud. Jennifer Beckstrand is a different voice from the usual Amish romances, but her writing sparkles.” ~ Idaho Statesman

“The first two books have been a joy to read. Author Jennifer Beckstrand has a mastery of written language like very few writers. She can drop humor into a bucket of tension and change the entire atmosphere of a chapter.” ~ Susan Faloon, The Christian Manifesto

“Oh, how do I love this book! Let me count the ways: I love the main characters, I love Anna and Felty, I love the witty dialogue, I love the romance, I love Lily’s perfect boyfriend, I love Aden’s dog… I even love Lily’s irrational father. I love rereading scenes just to enjoy the sweetness of Aden’s and Lily’s romance and smile at Aden’s playfulness and Lily’s exasperations and fears. It’s adorable. A beautiful, sweet and captivating romance.” ~ Mercedes Cordero, The Christian Manifesto

“I’ve fallen in love with these contemporary Amish young adults and their search for fun, friendship, and godly love. Bring on Book Three!” ~ Random Book Muses

“Jennifer Beckstrand gives her readers an outstanding story! This is such a delightful, enjoyable and fun read, one that you will think about a long time after you finish reading the book! Anna and Felty have a special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to read what they have in store for us in the third book of this series!” ~

“Huckleberry Hill proves, once again, to be like the tech-based matchmaking website! Annie Helmuth knows God is going to bring Lily and Aden together. Huckleberry Summer was a delight to read. I believe this will become one of my favorite series of Amish books! I could not put this book down. I have fallen in love with Annie and Felty Helmuth. I wish they were my grandparents!” ~ Kelly Smith | Amish Fiction Bookworm

“You’re in for a delightful, and wonderful time reading this story, and have to wonder how it is all going to turn out. Lily never disobeys her father. Will she get the courage to follow her heart? I, for one, can’t wait for the next book!!” ~

“Jennifer Beckstrand has lovingly crafted another beautiful story of life, love and laughter. What a gem! Beckstrand is the kind of writer who ruthlessly drags you into the story, where you follow along with the characters’ emotions – no matter what they might be. But you won’t mind because the path they travel is so full of enjoyable adventures and misadventures. You won’t want to miss a single one!” ~

“I loved Jennifer’s book, Huckleberry Hill, so I really didn’t doubt at all that this would be another winner.  I was right.  It is a winner! I can tell you that this is a book you won’t want to put down until you have reached the end of the book.  I really enjoyed this book.  Jennifer Beckstrand is fast becoming one of my favorite authors!” ~

“A shy, never-do-wrong Amish girl; an adventurous, not-always-does-right Amish boy; and a big, friendly, messy dog team up for a fun love story that will bring plenty of smiles and several concerned scowls as well.” ~

“This is a sweet book with a good message. I give it five out of five stars.”
