Huckleberry Summer by Jennifer Beckstrand

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!
Even the cover is fun!  What I enjoyed so much about this book was the fresh story-line with interesting twists and turns.  I never quite knew what would happen next.  That always keeps me reading.  A real attention keeper for me!

In this story Lily is working for Anna and Felty Helmuth, who we met in the earlier book of this series, Huckleberry Hill.  Anna has a little match-maker goal of getting a wife for her grandson, Aden.  Lily is the young woman Anna has in mind to make a perfect match for Aden.  There is a definite problem here as Lily's father hears about Aden's past which includes several arrests and jail time.  This does not sit well with Lily's protective father at all. 

Lily's father has the perfect match for Lily, as well. Tyler Yoder, the wonderful flawless Amish man is the one, the only one, that is good enough for his daughter, Lily.  Tyler and Aden are both interested in Lily but Lily is warned by her Dat that she should stay away from Aden and his schemes.

As Lily becomes more acquainted with Aden, she can't help falling for Aden.  How will this ever work out when her father is so opposed to all things "Aden"?

Aden convinces Lily to come along to check out a possible "puppy mill" only to have the police arrive to arrest them for trespassing.  This totally causes Lily to refuse to see Aden which in turn makes Lily's Dat a happy man.  Now the way is clear for Tyler Yoder who soon sees a happy future ahead with Lily.

You will need to read the book to find out what happens.  But 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!
