Caterina: Pendleton Petticoats Book 2 is an excellent historical romance taking place in the early 1900s in Pendleton, Oregon. Caterina, a young spirited woman, is forced to leave her family and the only life she has ever known when she is pursued by an undesirable older man who is the head of the Mafia; he is willing to do anything to make her his own. Caterina and her family devise a scheme to have her leave town packed in a crate. Caterina arrives in Pendleton, alone and scared, but is lucky enough to run into Aundy and Garrett (the friends we met in Book 1) and they take her in and quickly become fast friends. Kade is the deputy of Pendleton, best friends with Garrett, and he's young, handsome, and wanting to stay unmarried forever. Caterina and Kade are immediately attracted to each other and, though both deny and fight it, everyone knows they are perfect together. The book takes us on their journey and we are drawn right into the story. I do not want to give you much more because it will spoil it for you, but all I can say is that this is a MUST-READ book.
Shanna Hatfield once again has not disappointed, but has given us a very special romantic story that includes accurate historical facts too. I found it impossible to put the book down, and even though I was pretty sure that Caterina and Kade would end up together, I didn’t want to miss one single piece of their journey. If you enjoy romance and like old time western locales, this is among the best you will read. This book will easily stand alone, but it will be even more enjoyable if you read Aundy, the first book of the series. I can’t say enough to describe how much I enjoyed Caterina and I can’t wait to read Book Three. Please do not pass this one up.
