Courting Cate Book Review

I have another great Amish love story to tell you about and it's called Courting Cate written by Leslie Gould. There are several authors out there who write Amish themed books and I have to admit that Leslie Gould is one of the best at writing on this subject. You begin to feel like you just love to take off and go visit with some of these kind folks you meet in her books!

Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:
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?
 This is a story about Cate Miller who lives in Paradise, PA and she has been driving all suitors and her flirty sister, Betsy can't get married until Cate does. Betsy is in love with Levi and wants to get married. So she comes up with a plan to get Cate married off to Pete when he comes into town and goes to work for Cate's dad. Pete is a good worker and so her dad and Betsy devise plans to get them together.

Many plans are made and put into motion and finally Cate thinks she might like him. They go hiking together and even kayaking.  All is going well but Cate just feels like Pete is there to get her father's money.

One day Betsy tells Cate she is late on her monthly and she fears she is pregnant. Betsy had never read any of the sex books that Cate had checked out for her and she didn't even know that you actually had to have sex to get pregnant. Cate told Betsy we will work this out.

Is she really pregnant or not? I will leave that and what Cate does up for grabs so you will have something to look forward to reading. I also left some tidbits here and there out. It's a good story and will make you laugh some at how dumb Betsy is at times, which is good. It lightens the mood up.

Happy Reading!
