Known as “The Peanut Butter Brothers” for their Wisconsin family business, hardworking Andrew, Abraham, and Austin Petersheim have their plates too full for romance—until their little siblings decide to play matchmaker . . .
With their house full to bursting since Mammi and Dawdi moved back in, the Petersheim twins know the only way to get their bedroom back is to get their older brothers married off. But Abraham is so shy, he’ll barely speak to girls. Still, they’ve noticed how he looks at Emma Wengerd at church. Emma is so talkative, Abraham’s quiet ways wouldn’t matter a bit. Soon, the boys have hatched a scheme that sends Abraham right to Emma’s
door—and her chicken coop . . .
Abraham doubts that pretty, popular Emma would be interested in him. Yet when he finds himself by her side, having to straighten out the twins’ mischief—more than once—he can’t help imagining a future with her. And the more time they spend together, the more Abraham realizes that perhaps no matter how many boys buzz around Emma, with faith, it’s only the right one that counts . . .
Praise for Jennifer Beckstrand and her Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series
“Full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs.”
“A heart-warming story of faith, hope, and second chances. The story will captivate readers who love the Amish culture and enjoy an endearing romance.”
—Amy Clipston, bestselling author of A Seat by the Hearth
The second, moving title of Beckstrand's Petersheim Brothers series (following Andrew) features nine-year-old mischievous Amish twins Alfie and Benji, who are determined to marry off their older brothers. The pair brainstorm ways to get shy Abraham to fall in love with their pretty, popular neighbor, Emma, and when the twins discover a stray dog, they come up with a scheme to set up the older pair since Emma raises chickens and Abraham wants to become an Amish veterinarian. Emma finds what she assumes is evidence that the boys' adopted dog has been raiding her chicken coop, and Abraham agrees to discipline the twins. From this incident, he and Emma form a friendship based on their shared love of animals. However, Emma's potential interest in other suitors and Abraham's lack of confidence threaten their blossoming relationship. It's not ruining anything to say that all ends well as Emma and Abraham realize their true feelings for each other and grow in personal character. This is an endearing romance that fans of Wanda Brunstetter will love.
