Huckleberry Hearts

I loved this book! Jennifer Beckstrand is an awesome author. I love love all of her books and couldn't wait to read this one!  The cover on the book is gorgeous!
Anna and Felty are at it again! They are trying to play matchmaker to  Cassie and Zach; unbeknownst to them that they've already met when they were in college!
Even though Zach has changed he had a long way to go to prove himself to Cassie and her family. Especially Norman! Norman is something else altogether! What a bully!
It's amazing how Anna knows what Cassie needs before Cassie does herself! It's no wonder Cassie left the Amish.!
I did laugh when Zach wore his pink shirt to church and to the hog butchering time. I also laughed when it turned out that Cassie and Zach wound up having the same car! How ironic is that?!
I thought Cassie's mamm was very domineering on a whole lot of things especially when Cassie couldn't dress the way she wanted! No wonder Norman is a bully! He's just like his mamm! Yea to Dr. Reynolds's when he won a wrestling match. To me, that just like children that are fighting over a toy only this was a girl. Men! They never grow up!
I'm glad that Dr. Reynolds came into Cassie's life when he did. I'm also very glad that he grew up from his "college" days. I could tell that he and Cassie were meant for each other just as Anna and Felty could tell.
I wish Dr. Reynolds was my dr! He's got great bedside manners. Not all dr's do! I'm very happy that Cassie eventually changed her mind about him!( God works in mysterious ways and sometimes not to our liking!) It's in His time, not ours. It can be very disappointing for some ppl. And there's another of my favorites Good things come to those who wait.
Thank you Jennifer Beckstrand for another wonderful tale about Anna and Felty trying to play matchmaker. I hope your stories about them continue. I'm also looking forward to your new series. The covers are just beautiful!
This book was given to me by Netgalley and a paperback was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I give this book 5 stars!
