Irrepressible Katie Jones knows exactly what God has called her to do—lead the women's suffrage movement in her home state of Idaho—and nothing, especially not romance, is going to stand in her way. It's 1916, and she motors to Homestead, Idaho, determined to start the campaign by becoming a newspaper columnist in the little town where she grew up. Her childhood friend, Ben Rafferty, owns the local paper, and she's sure she can talk him into anything, just like when they were kids. She's not far wrong, except she can't seem to talk him out of falling in love with her—or control her own unruly heart. Katie's progressive ideas throw the town into turmoil and grab statewide attention. While Ben concentrates on CATCHING KATIE (4), Katie staunchly denies her heart in a bid for her party's nomination for a seat in Congress. Robin Lee Hatcher delivers a delightful, thought-provoking romp with characters readers are sure to adore. The occasional author intrusion proved a minor distraction. (Jan., 368 pp., $9.99)
