He wants to change her mind.
It's the beginning of a new century at Lake Manawa resort in Iowa, but some things never change. When Emily Graham's meddlesome aunts and grandmother take it upon themselves to find her a husband among the resort guests, the spunky suffragist is determined to politely decline each and every suitor. She has neither the time nor the need for a man in her busy life.
Carter Stockton, a recent college graduate and a pitcher for the Manawa Owls baseball team, intends to enjoy every minute of the summer before he is forced into the straitlaced business world of his father.
When their worlds collide, neither Emily nor Carter could have guessed what would come next. Will Carter strike out? Or will Emily cast her vote for a love that might cost her dreams?
My Thoughts: This is one of my favorite books so far this year!!! Emily is my kinda girl! She is spunky and not afraid to speak her mind! Poor thing she has these aunts who just won't stop matchmaking her with these horrible men. She goes roller skating one afternoon and runs into an old friend of her brother's Carter Stockton . . and if he isn't a looker! He has just graduated from college, and is the new pitcher for the baseball team in town. Their paths continue to cross and Emily finds she is having the time of her life. The only problem is she is wanting to change the world, well the world for women that is, giving women the right to vote. Will her political stance affect her romance stance??? You'll have to read this book and find out. You don't want to miss this one! This is a summer beach must read!!!!!
