Publisher's Summary

Number-one best-selling author Leslie Gould delivers a new Amish romance series. When Amish farmer Pete Treger moves to Paradise Township, Pennsylvania, seeking a better life, he meets sisters Cate and Betsy Miller. Both are beautiful, but older sister Cate is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Betsy, on the other hand, is sweet and flirty - and seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County! However, the sisters' wealthy father has made one hard and fast rule: Elder sister must marry first, before the younger can even start courting. Unfortunately for poor Betsy, and for the men who want to court her, her older sister, Cate, doesn't have any suitors - until Pete comes to town, that is. Though he finds both sisters attractive, something about Cate's feisty demeanor appeals to him. Soon the other bachelors in the district convince Pete to court Cate. She hardly seems receptive to his overtures, though. Instead, she's immediately suspicious of his interest.

Relaxing romance

Narrator was good. I like her voice. Story was easy to follow and sweet. I would recommend for an easy relaxing listen with children around.

A pure delight!

I don’t know when I’ve last listened to a book I’ve enjoyed so much! This was well written and the narrator did a fantastic job with this very compelling story. Many thanks to the author for sharing her gift!

Sorry I read it...

Narrator was fantastic! Hated the storyline. Can't bear mean husbands, even if only in jest.

What a Fun Read!

This book was fun for sure. I had been meaning to read it for a while and finally got to it this summer. It was cute and completely enjoyable, I loved all of the characters (except Cate's sister, I could never quite forgive her). Nothing about this book was extraordinary, new, or shocking but it was still good. It was like chicken noodle soup, delicious and comfortable. Would totally recommend for some light fun reading.
