The Return Giveaway


Inspired by true events, this deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of prerevolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.

Beautiful and winsome, Betsy Zook never questioned her family’s rigid expectations, nor those of devoted Hans, but then she never had to. Not until the night when she’s taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. During her captivity, Betsy faces brutality and hardship, but also unexpected kindness. She draws strength from native Caleb, who encourages her to find God in all circumstances. She finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the intense new feelings this compelling man awakens within her.

Handsome and complex, Hans is greatly anguished by Betsy’s captivity and turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. Eagerly, Tessa responds, overlooking troubling signs of Hans’s hunger for revenge. When Betsy is finally restored to the Amish, have things gone too far between Hans and Tessa?

Inspired by true events, The Return is a deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of pre-revolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.


BOOK REVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON Return to Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand

Can I just say… YAY! Finally, all my (OK…OK, impatient) waiting has paid off.

RETURN to Huckleberry Hill is HERE!

And, even more exciting, there’s already another book scheduled in the series! I will post more info below!

It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here!

And, OH MY WORD, It’s fantastic!

If you love Jennifer’s Matchmaker’s of Huckleberry Hill series (or any of Jennifer’s books really), do not miss Return to Huckleberry Hill

We’re back with Huckleberry Hill’s favorite matchmaking couple and this time, they have help from a dear sweet visitor who desperately wants to make amends for her brother.

Not that Anna and Felty need much help in the scheming department…

This is why I love Jennifer Beckstrand’s books so much! She entertains with colorful characters and kooky comedy—and all the while, she’s building an intricate plot that will keep you guessing to the very end. It’s wonderful!

Heartfelt stories. Characters you’ll fall in love with. Romance that you just know will last FOREVER!

You don’t want to miss a single one!

More from Kensington about Return to Huckleberry Hill:

When it comes to matchmaking, Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s unstoppable octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never seem to run out of opportunities—or grandchildren…

Reuben Helmuth is plenty bitter. John King, his best friend—or so he thought—is engaged to the girl Reuben loved. Humiliated, Reuben flees from Ohio to his grandparents’ home on Huckleberry Hill, where he knows he’ll find comfort. He’s enjoying wallowing in his misery—until John’s sister, Fern, shows up. She won’t stop pestering Reuben about forgiveness—or trying to help him find love again. Yet Fern’s efforts only reawaken Reuben’s long-buried feelings—for her…

With her brother too ashamed to face Reuben, it’s fallen to Fern to help mend fences. But as she and the Helmuths do all they can—even organizing a knitting club event filled with eligible girls—it may take one more challenge to inspire Reuben to forget his heartache, recognize his own blunders, and embrace the true love that’s right in front of him…

And don’t miss the next book in this wonderful series: set for release December 2017! (click the cover to see more on goodreads)


There’s nothing Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin’s irrepressible eighty-somethings Anna and Felty Helmuth like better than a challenge. And the chance to matchmake their feisty granddaughter is their most delightful task yet…

Elsie Helmuth’s plain-spoken ways got her in trouble once before, so she needs to make a good impression at her new teaching job in Huckleberry Hill. But she’s not about to let disabled student Wally Sensenig work below his potential. And she definitely won’t put up with his hot-headed older brother sabotaging her efforts, no matter how handsome he is. . .

Sam is nearly at the end of his rope caring for his ailing, widowed mother, working their farm, and raising his siblings. He’ll admit Elsie’s ideas are bringing Wally out of his angry shell—but why does she have to be as stubborn as she is pretty? Yet as it turns out, Elsie has taught Sam something about himself as well. And he’ll do whatever it takes to make up for his mistakes—and win her heart forever.

BOOK REVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON Sweet As Honey by Jennifer Beckstrand

I know this is book two in the series, but it is (yes, it still is…even after reading all of the others in this wonderful series) my absolute favorite of them all!


First, the designer in me has to mention just how much I LOVE this cover. I also LOVE that the publisher was so smart to keep the theme for all three covers, linking them effortlessly in readers’ minds. Genius!

And like my mother, if I have to choose between a new Jennifer Beckstrand story and sleep — I choose the book — every time!

This story starts off with a bang (almost literally) and it just gets better and better! No surprise there!

Of course, you have to feel for sweet Lily! And, this is one of those times I wanted to jump into the book and tell her what she can’t see because it’s right in front of her, but alas… I cannot.

And then there’s the *ahem* “schoolyard bully” who made fun of Lily—who you have to know, did that because he liked her…

Don’t look at me like that. You know I’m right.

Not the least bit surprised to say that this is another WONDERFUL story by Jennifer Beckstrand, with the comedic writing and colorful characters I love so much from her, a book that will have readers rushing to find book two… and then three!

And yes, I stayed up half the night to finish it. OF COURSE!

More from Kensington about Sweet As Honey:

“Sweet as Honey is a warm, wonderful book filled with delightful characters, humor and tenderness. Jennifer Beckstrand writes lovely stories, sure to touch your heart.”–RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author


Smart, kind, and good-hearted, the three Christner girls are affectionately known as The Honeybee Sisters in the beloved Wisconsin Amish community where, under the care of their aunt, they’ve grown into skilled beekeepers–and lovely, sought-after young women. . .

Though she has blossomed into a beauty, Lily Christner doesn’t really believe it. Deep down, she still feels like a lonely, gawky teenager. Maybe that’s why she’s all but promised herself to Paul Glick, the one boy who never teased her in her awkward girlhood–unlike Dan Kanagy, whose creative name-calling left her in tears many a time.

Now he’s back in town after two years away–and being surprisingly sweet, suspiciously attentive–and making Lily unsettlingly yet deliciously nervous. It seems Dan wants Lily’s forgiveness–and her heart. But can he convince her–not to mention her protective schwesters and aendi–that despite the past, her future lies with him?…
