Courting Cate by Leslie Gould

Book Info 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. Link to buy the book:

Enter Today - 11/1-20! Courting Cate by Leslie Gould 

My Take:  This book is the first book in a new series by Leslie Gould "The Courtships of Lancaster County".  This story is loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare.  Cate's Father declares that her younger sister cannot court or marry unless Cate does first.  So Cate feel that pressure to find a husband.  But she is not going to just accept anyone as she has been spurned before.  With a bit of fate and alittle meddling mixed in Cate meets Pete Treger.  Has Cate meet her match or is Pete just like the other?  I liked this book and will be looking for the others in the series.  If you enjoy Amish Fiction you may find this book a little different.  This book takes a little of the strangeness of the Amish a way and shows them just as they are as people.
