Emily Ebersol has always been in love with Luke Lambright and they have always planned that they would get married, have children, and live in Wells Landing among the Amish community they'd grown up in. But Luke has decided he wants to race cars in the Englisch world. Emily can't go and Luke can't stay. Being the daughter of the bishop isn't always easy, especially when you love a wayward boy. Her dat sends her to help the Riehl family who has been struggling after their father's tragic accident. She knows that he has ulterior motives in sending her--that she'll forget Luke and start noticing Elam Riehl. Elam, who always seems to have a scowl and a gruff word.
Elam Riehl has taken on the weight of caring for the farm and the family since his father had his accident. It doesn't leave time for anything else like courting the girl he's loved since he was 14, Emily Ebersol. Not like it would matter anyway since she has always loved Luke. But now that she's been helping out at his house and Luke is gone, does he have a chance to show her he is the kind of man she needs?
"Courting Emily" by Amy Lillard is the second book in the Wells Landing series. I didn't read the first book, but this book is a stand alone and it isn't necessary to have read the first book first. "Courting Emily" mentions details about what happened in "Caroline's Secret" so you know what happened (so if you want to read it, read it first!) and aren't left out. I loved the characters in "Courting Emily" and struggled along with Emily in knowing what she should do and who she should choose. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more in the series.
I received a free digital Advance Reader Copy of "Courting Emily" from Kensington Books through netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
