Revell Blog Tour: My Review of A Great Catch

Here's a description of the book from Revell:

"She wants to change the world.
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?

The perfect summer novel, A Great Catch will enchant you with its breezy setting and endearing characters."

My Rating: Summer

My Review:

Once again Seilstad has swept me away to the sunny shores of Lake Manawa for a delicious summer treat! Following up the delightful Making Waves, this book offers another inning of fun and faith while sharing a unique and engaging story.

The characters are both humorous and convicting as they stumble both literally and figuratively through the joys and trials of new love. Carter and Emily are simply adorable, but at the same time there is a depth to their story that causes the reader to pause and consider her own use or misuse of her time. There's a lot that demands our attention in this life, but there are consequences for every choice we make. It's a powerful lesson that's woven well throughout this sweet book.

A Great Catch has a thoroughly enjoyable setting and a wonderful story--just right for the beginning of the summer season or anytime you're longing for some summer fun!

*With thanks to Revell Publishing for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.*
