Book Review: A Great Catch by Lorna Seilstad
Emily Graham is anything but graceful and her well meaning aunts are getting worried about her marital status. Even more worrisome to her aunts than her clumsiness, is her independent streak and loyal commitment to the suffragist movement. The last thing on Emily's mind though is marriage - she doesn't need a man, but women's rights need her!
Carter Stockton is working hard to be a success, although not the kind his family would like. While he is expected to join his father's business, Carter is spending the summer playing baseball for the Lake Manawa team.
When Carter and Emily's worlds literally collide, they have quite a time figuring out whose goals and plans are really the most important.
The second book in the series, I again enjoyed the carefree, easy writing style that fits the summery backdrop of Lake Manawa. I enjoyed that some of the characters from the last book returned, but you would not have to read the first book to follow the story at all - it reads well by itself. While not a super deep book, it is a nice light summer read that still has a few lessons to teach.
Thank you to Revell publishers for a free copy of this book to review.
