HUCKLEBERRY HILL

Beckstrand has written a sweet romance with a lot of heart that offers a new, refreshing take on the overused 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.

Anna Helmuth is on a mission to find the perfect woman for her grandson, Moses, whom she believes is unhappy because he has not fallen in love. Lia is staying at the Helmuths’ for the summer to help them. She’s glad to be away from home where she’s always being compared to her sister, Rachel — the pretty one, the dainty one — while Lia is teased for being as tall as the Statue of Liberty. When Moses and Lia meet, there is something between them, but Moses knows what his grandmother is up to and has no desire to get hitched. When Rachel shows up, Anna has her work cut out for her to make sure her grandson chooses the right sister. (ZEBRA, Jan., 352 pp., $7.99)
