Courting Cate ~ Book Review & Enter to WIN a Kindle Fire


{ABOUT THE BOOK}
Courting Cate
When This Couple Gets to Courting, Sparks Will Fly!
In Paradise, Pennsylvania, Cate Miller is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Her sweet and flirty sister, Betsy, on the other hand, seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County!
But the sisters’ wealthy father has made one hard-and-fast rule: older Cate must marry first, before younger Betsy can even start courting. Unfortunately, untamable Cate has driven away every suitor–until Pete Treger comes to town, that is.
Prodded by the men of the area, Pete turns his attention to winning Cate’s hand. But is his interest true or is there a scheme at play?
Book 1 in The Courtships of Lancaster County series.

{MY REVIEW}
As you all know I love Amish stories. And I love a spunky woman. This book has both! I can not tell you how many times I found myself laughing out loud and also crying. Leslie Gould created an amazing story with lovable, relate-able characters.

This is a story of a young woman who has been burned by love and continues to let pride get in the way of her not only forgiving but also of loving someone else. If you think about it, this is something we've all done but poor Cate takes it a step further. She buries herself in books and won't let anyone hurt her.

I loved this book and I really think if you like to read Amish fiction you should try it. You'll find yourself rooting for Cate and hoping for a happy ending!
