Book Blurb:

Fall in love with this cozy story about two people from different worlds.
Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone...again. Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited, and she's more than happy to sell the farm and move to the city.

As Sinatra croons from the radio and Christmas descends upon her charming farm, Franny teaches Charlie the curious and sometimes comical ways of country life. In the process, they unearth some discoveries of the heart-that sometimes love comes when you're least ready for it. Will the holidays bring their most impossible dreams within reach?

My Thoughts:
 
When Charlie Landau shows up on Franny's farm to buy it she is befuddled as to why this well dressed, spit and polished man wants to be a farmer. 
He goes on to tell her that he can't run his father's business unless he proves to his father that he can run something of his own first.
In her muddy jeans, he asks her to dance and you can see the writing on the wall. 
What you don't expect in this charming Christmas romance is racial tensions. 
You just know that everything will be okay and that Frank Sinatra's song will ring true and everyone will Have A Merry Little Christmas.  
This is a great book to read all cozy by the fire!

 

Courting Cate & Kindle Fire Giveaway from @LeslieGould! RSVP for Facebook Party {11/20}


















Book Blurb:

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.

My Thoughts:
This book reminded me of the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, which is one of my all time favorite movies! Cate's quick wit and sharp tongue are no match for the bachelors in Lancaster, PA. This was a fun read, and definitely not one to miss!
