The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill
The Helmuths’ thirteen children are grown and moved away. Anna and Felty Helmuth, full of vinegar and spice, are looking to stir up a little excitement. What could be more fun than throwing two young people together to see if sparks ignite? And who would ever suspect two elderly Amish folks of mischief? With a little help from the Helmuths, Huckleberry Hill could turn out to be the most romantic spot in Wisconsin.
Return to Huckleberry Hill — Book 7
Reuben Helmuth is plenty bitter. He’s fed up with girls, two-faced friends, and people in general. His best friend, John, betrayed his trust and is now happily engaged to the only girl Reuben ever loved. Reuben flees to his grandparents’ house and is getting along just fine wallowing in his misery until John’s sister Fern King starts making a pest of herself in an attempt to mend fences. It’s bad enough that she won’t stop preaching to him about forgiveness, but she claims she wants to be his friend too. Can’t he just be rid of her?
Fern King feels terrible about the way things turned out between Reuben and her brother. John is too ashamed to make amends with Reuben, so the job falls to Fern. Fern hopes to convince Reuben to let go of his anger and find another girl, but when she brings a parade of girls to help Reuben forget what he’s lost, she doesn’t expect to fall in love with him herself. Will Reuben be able to forget his heartache and accept the love that’s right in front of his face?
