With their thirteen children grown, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next adventure — trying their hands at matchmaking. Huckleberry Hill just might turn out to be the most romantic spot in Wisconsin. Moses Zimmerman knew his grandparents couldn't resist trying to find him a wife. But he never expected it would be a woman tall enough to look him in the eye, and honest enough to make him question a promise holding him to his past.

I grew up with a steady diet of William Shakespeare and Jane Austen. After all that literary immersion, I naturally decided to get a degree in mathematics, which came in handy when one of my six children needed help with homework. After my fourth daughter was born, I started writing. By juggling diaper changes, soccer games, music lessons, laundry, and two more children, I finished my first manuscript--a Western--in just under fourteen years. I now write Inspirational Amish Romance. My goal is to write uplifting, inspiring stories with happy endings and hopeful messages. If my books make readers want to give themselves a big hug or jump up and down for joy, I've done my job. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and American Christian Fiction Writers and am represented by Mary Sue Seymour of The Seymour Agency.
There are three Amish romances in the Forever After in Apple Lake Series (Summerside/Guideposts). Kate's Song, Rebecca's Rose, and Miriam's Quilt are all now available. Kate's Song was the #1 Romantic Religious Fiction download in the Free Kindle Store in August of 2012, and Rebecca's Rose and Miriam's Quilt both spent time in the top 50 Religious Fiction books on Amazon.com.
I have six Amish Romances in the works with Kensington Books. The first book, Huckleberry Hill, will be released on January 7, 2014. Huckleberry Hill is set in Wisconsin on a little hill in Amish country.
The series, The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill, is about an elderly Amish couple who try to find suitable mates for their grandchildren. What could be more fun than throwing two young people together to see if sparks ignite? No one would ever suspect two octogenarian Amish folks of mischief.
Romantic Times gave Huckleberry Hill 4 1/2 stars, calling it "A sweet romance with a lot of heart that offers a new, refreshing take on the...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."
I have four daughters, two sons, three sons-in-law, and two adorable grandsons. I live in the foothills of the Wasatch Front with my husband and one son still left at home.

Jennifer has done it again she has written a book to capture your attention from the very first page to the last page.
I could not put this book down once I opened it and started reading it.
I can not wait to read book two in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series. Huckleberry Summer sounds just as great as this book.
If you have not read any of Jennifer's books yet, this one is so worth your time and money, you are going to really enjoy it!
I highly recommend this book.
I gave this book 5 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
