Courting Cate: A Blog Tour and Review

About 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?

Book 1 in The Courtships of Lancaster County series.

My Review:

Courting Cate was a fantastic read! From the very first page to the very last, I could not put it down.  Cate was probably one of my favorite characters from a novel in a really long time! The book was very well written and drew my attention from the very first pages. It is a very realistic look at the Amish lifestyle, so a great read for those who are unfamiliar with it.  I could not put this book down. In fact, I read it in only one day and loved every part of Courting Cate.  I look forward to reading more from this author, and can't wait to see how the rest of the series develops.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
