It is always nice to continue a series that you have fallen in love with. The beautiful writing of this series has been a nice relaxing time of getting to know the characters and their many lovely and sometimes quirky traits. What would it be like to have a grandmother who was determined to find you a mate? This book gives us a glimpse of one family that will find out what lengths a grandmother will go through to find happiness for her granddaughter. Let the games begin.

Cassie has been away from her old lifestyle as an Amish for a long time. She went away to pursue her dream of going to college and find a promising career. When she receives word that her grandmother, Anna,  has a cancerous spot on her foot that will require surgery and  care, Cassie  comes home to take care of her. She doesn't know what she is in store for. Her  grandmother has decided to play matchmaker. Will Anna's plan work to bring true love to her granddaughter?

Zach is the handsome doctor that has been taking care of Cassie's grandmother. He has really made an impression on Anna and guess who she picks for Cassie to match her with ? I loved the part where Cassie and Zach had both attended the same college. Zach it seems had a reputation at the college that was not well received by Cassie. She wanted nothing to do with him. That is such a minor detail, because Anna has decided they will make a perfect couple. After all, grandparents only want the best for their grandchildren and Anna believes she has found the perfect match for Cassie.

The book is filled with hope, twists that keep you guessing, faith and an unforgettable love between family. Will Cassie return to her Amish faith? Can Zach win Cassie's heart? I really enjoyed the story  that flowed smoothly and kept my interest till the very end. You are in for a treat as you read this story that will give you a sense of  strong family and the desire to find happiness for those you love.

About the Book
Young-at-heart octogenarians Anna and Felty Helmuth never miss the chance to find a perfect match for one of their grandchildren. And when their beloved Cassie returns to Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, Anna has a feeling they might soon have a doctor in the family…
Though Cassie Coblenz left her Amish community to go to college, Mammi and Dawdi’s farm will always feel like home. It’s the ideal place for an extended study break—at least until her grandmother’s handsome Englisch doctor becomes a regular distraction. Zach Reynolds is the kind of heartbreaker Cassie has learned to avoid, no matter how charming he may be.
Unlike every woman Zach has met in recent years, Cassie doesn’t fall at his feet. Strong, generous, beautiful within and without —she’s everything he could want. Yet the gulf between them deepens when a tragedy shakes his faith. Now the good doctor has one goal—to become a man who could be worthy of Cassie’s love…
