LitFuse Blog Tour: Courting Cate by Leslie Gould

About 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 thoughts and Review: 

 I really enjoy Amish Fiction so I was excited when this book became available for review. I was NOT disappointed!! I decided to take a "mental health" day a couple weekends ago and picked up the book and started reading. I kept reading, reading, reading and before I knew it I finished the book!

 I really LOVE the story line and the main character Cate Miller. Cate seems a lot like me, stubborn and not afraid to speak her mind. These character traits make it hard for Cate to find a "suitor" but she soon mets "her match" or does she, when Pete Treger moves to her town. I also see myself in her when she plays "rough and tough" with possible suitors, which makes them "run away". I really like how the book was suspenseful, intriguing, very well writen and enjoyable!!

 Courting Cate is the first book in the new series, The Courtships of Lancaster County. I enjoyed Courting Cate so much, I am excited to read future books in this series. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
