  • About the book:
     
    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?

    My Review:
     
    Overall I liked this book. It is the second in the Lake Manawa Summers series but can stand alone fine. I liked Carter and Emily and the author did a good job developing their characters. The plot was a mix of women's suffrage for Emily and baseball for Carter. The plot and characters were unique and interesting. I enjoyed reading this book. It was a lighthearted for the most part and had several funny moments. Recommended. :)
