Minding Molly (The Courtships of Lancaster County #3) by Leslie Gould

Capable and optimistic Molly Zook has a slight issue with control: She doesn't like giving it up. So she's chafing against her mother's wish that, to save the family farm, she marry Mervin Mosier--especially after she meets Leon Fisher. He's from Montana but is working in Molly's district, training horses at a nearby ranch. He is tall and muscular, with a confident demeanor. Molly has never met anyone like him, and he seems to feel the same about her.

Determined to let nothing get between them, Molly decides the best course of action is to get Mervin to fall back in love with her best friend, Hannah. Molly organizes a weekend camping trip hoping to bring them together, but things quickly go awry and it seems Leon and Hannah might be falling for each other instead. Will Molly keep struggling to control everyone and everything around her? Or will she learn to let God handle the twists and turns of her life?

My Review:

This is the third book in this series that I have read, and greatly enjoyed.
This is Molly Zooks story, who has recently lost her Dad. She is now trying to save their home and farm. Her Mom has a solution, she has picked out a husband for Molly, and he has some land that will help. Yeah right, but Molly has always obeyed her parents, this is asking a lot. As she tries to find a plan to work, she meets someone who she is smitten with.
Can Molly reject the one her Mother wants for her? Or will she follow her heart? When you think you know just the way this story is going to unfold, guess again.
Now Molly is a control freak...she has to have things done right, and the way she wants it! We travel with the Amish gang or Youngies and go camping...oh fun!! Molly has to have it done her way, she has a chart...listen all we need this and this. Sound like fun?
Through all we see people who live their faith, and are there for one another, in good, and hard times. We celebrate weddings, and births, and then the loss of loved ones, and illnesses. I loved this visit and hope for more!!

I received this book through Bethany House Publishers, and was not required to give a positive review.
