"Courting Cate," by Leslie Gould

"Courting Cate," by Leslie Gould
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?

I have to admit I was getting "Amish Book Burnout," prior to this book, as it was beginning to feel like they were all basically the same.  I am very pleased to say this book was different from the others.  It had a fast pace to the book with enough twists and turns in it, to make you want to read more.

Cate and Pete were truly made for one another and the path they take for them to realize that makes for a great story.  I am pleased to say that this is the first in the series and from what I have read about the next book, it will be a great follow on from this book.  I found the nickname for the twins Mervin and Martin very funny......won't spoil it for you by telling you what, you'll have to read the book!!

Stars out of 5:5 couldn't find anything wrong with the book.  A great read, and an easy read, would recommend this book.  Yes it's about the Amish, but it has a bit more to the story that makes it special.

  1. I always turn to Amish books for a change of pace--I do kind of feel they are all the same. I will have to watch for this one.

    As to the one, I have not read this particular book, but have read one or two by her and think I came away feeling like something was missing.
