Litfuse Publicity Book Tours Presents: Courting Cate by Leslie Gould
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.

About The Author
Such a different Amish read. Once I started I didn't put it down until I finished! Loved it.
Cate has spent her life being a Mother to her sister Betsy. Their Mom died when Betsy was one day old. Could just picture the 7 year old bathing the new born. She knew what and how to do it, her Mom had kept her home from school for the last year of her life. She loves Betsy and will do anything for her?? Well, when their Dad imposes a edict that Cate will need to marry before Betsy can, and she cannot go out to singings etc. unless Cate goes to. Life changes drastically for all of them.
When Pete Trager comes to town and starts working for their Dad...he is a wealthy Amishman. Cate sees he is interested in Betsy, but he shares her interest in reading. We experience some fun goings on with Cate and Pete.
There is a lot of trickery going on here, and some things are not as they appear. I should state that Cate through the years has developed what others consider a "prickly personality". She has been scared by some of life happenings and she tends to take it out on others.
Watch her bloom into a "Sweet Cate", but she sure struggles getting there. Do yourself a favor and pick this wonderful read up! You won't be disappointed.
