A Great Catch: A Book Review

About The Book:



She wants to change the world.
He wants to change her mind.

It's the beginning of a new century at Lake Manawa resort in Iowa, but some things never change. When Emily Graham's meddlesome aunts and grandmother take it upon themselves to find her a husband among the resort guests, the spunky suffragist is determined to politely decline each and every suitor. She has neither the time nor the need for a man in her busy life.

Carter Stockton, a recent college graduate and a pitcher for the Manawa Owls baseball team, intends to enjoy every minute of the summer before he is forced into the straitlaced business world of his father.

When their worlds collide, neither Emily nor Carter could have guessed what would come next. Will Carter strike out? Or will Emily cast her vote for a love that might cost her dreams?

The perfect summer novel, A Great Catch will enchant you with its breezy setting and endearing characters.

About The Author:



A history buff, antique collector, and freelance graphic designer, Lorna Seilstad is the author of Making Waves and draws her setting from her home state of Iowa. A former high school English and journalism teacher, she has won several online writing awards and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.


My Review:


If you are looking for a fun, light-hearted read for the summer, you need to read A Great Catch!


 With truly lovable characters and great writing, Seilstad hits this one right out of the park (yes, pun intended!). I loved book one of the Lake Manawa series, Making Waves, and was very eager to read A Great Catch. Definitely worth the wait, and based on the first two books, I know book three will be just as good. 


A Great Catch covers a variety of themes such as family relationships, romance, friendships, the women's movement and the importance of God's plans and timing over ours. You will laugh at, and cheer on both Emily and Carter, and even love the trouble maker Olivia! 


A job well done to author, Lorna Seilstad, that I highly recommend!


BUY IT:  A Great Catch by Lorna Seilstad is available at your favorite bookseller, from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
