Now that they’ve happily married off two of their grandchildren, Anna and Felty Helmuth are ready for their next matchmaking challenge. What better way to celebrate the most heartwarming of seasons–and make Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, the place for unexpected love. . .

A difficult marriage has left the Helmuths’ widowed great-granddaughter, Beth, finished with wedlock. She’s content to live with them and make a life for herself and her toddler son. But once she turns down handsome Tyler Yoder’s proposal, it seems only fair to encourage him to find a suitable wife. Trouble is, his gentleness and generous ways are showing her how joyous a real meeting of hearts can be. . .

After a failed courtship, Tyler thought the best he could hope for in a wife was mere companionship. But spirited Beth is the one he longs to protect, and hold close. Earning her trust is the hardest thing he’s ever had to do. And soon, both will discover that forgiveness and understanding are gifts that only rekindled faith–along with the happiest of holidays–can bring.

My Comments:  I enjoyed this sweet book although for some reason it took me a while to “get into” it. I absolutely loved Annie and Felty the great grandparents of Beth. They made me laugh out loud – a funny, completely warm and fuzzy, in-love with each other and life, great-grandma and grandpa. I plan on going back to read the previous two Huckleberry books, Huckleberry Summer and Huckleberry Spring.

Tyler, who was left at the altar, is another endearing character. His father, the bishop, seemed to instill in him the qualities of a Christian gentlemen. He is a total keeper, but Beth almost never finds this out!

Sweet little Toby, Beth’s son, steals Tyler’s heart completely. One wonders who Tyler loved first, Toby or Beth. This book has suspense, romance, family relationships (both functional and dysfunctional). I loved it and there’s a little more “holiday” throughout than some Amish books.
