This book is a collection of three stories with a connection to baking and the love that goes into the recipes.
I am reviewing The Christmas Bakery on Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand.
I've read a few books by Ms. Beckstrand so I knew I was in for a treat.
This story is about Titus and his wonderful grandparents - Anna and Felty. His grandmother wanted Titus to find a wife and to be happy as she was in her marriage.
Katie Rose is being sent to stay with Anna and Felty during the Christmas season. Her parents are hoping that an old neighbor, Adam, will propose after he samples some of Katie's cooking. Anna knows he is not a match for Katie but her grandson, Titus, is perfect for her.
Katie knows how important it is for Adam to propose. If he doesn't she'll be an old maid. But he is so critical and doesn't appreciate her baking. Titus realizes Adam doesn't deserve Katie and he is on a mission to win her hand.
Titus and Katie are very caring people. They are very respectful and always try to make others happy. You can't help to cheer for Titus in his quest to win Katie's affection. It doesn't hurt that he has a Christmas goat to help him.
Great story. I enjoyed reading this.
The Christmas Bakery at Huckleberry Hill
