Publishers Description
Tired of waiting for a match made in heaven, she'll settle for one made in Texas. Whether it's riding bikes, catching snakes, or sliding down banisters, Essie Spreckelmeyer just can't quite make herself into the ideal woman her hometown--and her mother--expect her to be. It's going to take an extraordinary man to appreciate her joy and spontaneity--or so says her doting oilman father. Sadly such a man doesn't appear to reside in Corsicana, Texas. It's 1894, the year of Essie's thirtieth birthday, and she decides the Lord has more important things to do than provide her a husband. If she wants one, she needs to catch him herself. So she writes down the names of all the eligible bachelors in her small Texas town, makes a list of their attributes and drawbacks, closes her eyes, twirls her finger, and...picks one. But convincing the lucky "husband-to-be" will be a bit more of a problem. Join Deeanne Gist for another unforgettable tale and find out whether Essie's plan to catch a husband succeeds or if she's just courting trouble

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Funny at first, then more serious; at least PG  Oct 31, 2008
Starts with entertaining scenarios and well-written characters; but the story shifts, and the "G-rated write-ups" about "PG-13 events" just don't work. This should have been the second draft, not the final edition.

In the past, Bethany House has printed too much info on the back cover; this one needed a hint that it is not for preteen readers.
Courting Trouble  Oct 21, 2008
My book came in very quick time. I placed the order on a Wednesday and had it the very next Monday. The first words out of my mouth were "Oh my goodness!" I was very pleased with the time and the book was in good shape. Wouldn't have a problem at all ordering from this person again. : )
Eh, I've read better...  Oct 14, 2008
It was a well written story, but it wasn't all that interesting. I didn't really care for most of the characters, and though they may be a bit closer to reality than most Christian Fiction (or any fiction really) that's not why most people read fiction. They want their characters to be a bit over the top and likable. I thought that the main character didn't shown any remorse for her actions.

It was a quick read and for that it kept a few stars.
Hardly a "Christian" Romance  Sep 28, 2008
I only got to chapter 3 and had to put the book away. I'm very disappointed that readers are giving this book such good reviews. I am seriously concerned about the content. The author described a male character having lustful imaginings about the woman who worked for him, and she described a scene where he was looking at parts of her body or wondering what she looked like underneath her clothes. What is going on with Christian authors? If I wanted to read secular romance, then that's what I would buy. I believe this kind of writing for a Christian audience is completely out of line. I'm extremely disappointed and will not recommend this book to anyone.
Courting Trouble  Aug 11, 2008
This is Deeanne Gist's third book, although it is not as amazing as her first two, Ii still felt that this story was well written and caught my attention. I was rather surprised at the amount of detail that she used when it came to relationships. In my opinion christen romance novels do not need that much description when it comes to passion. Nevertheless Mrs. Gist was still able to keep me up late at night reading this book to see what would happen next. I enjoyed that the ending is not typical but rather encouraging to all single women. I am looking forward to reading the next book about Essie to see what kind of trouble she gets into. This is a wonderful story to read over the summer on a hot day.
