{{Book Review}} Becoming Bea by Leslie Gould

Inspired by Shakespeare's Much Ado About NothingLeslie Gould's fourth novel, Becoming Bea, in the Courtships of Lancaster County series is sure to entertain! 

Can Bea and Ben Turn Rivalry Into Romance?
Beatrice Zook knows God wants her to learn patience toward others. When assisting a family overwhelmed by triplets proves surprisingly successful, her confidence in dealing with others, both young and old, grows.
One person she'll never be able to find peace with though is Ben Rupp. They've known each other forever, and Ben understands precisely how to antagonize her. What neither she nor Ben will admit is that beneath all their bickering, attraction awaits. When friends decide to try and bring the couple together, will the pair be able to find true love? Or will they damage their relationship beyond repair?

*My Reivew*
"Becoming Bea" is the fourth book in Leslie Gould's " Courtships of Lancaster County" series I have not read any of the other three books in this series...yet. Even though this is the 4th book, I really enjoyed it & can see that Leslie Gould is a wonderful writer. I will be going back and reading the first three books as soon as I can get them! 

I did get kind of annoyed and bored with Bea & Ben's relationship for a bit. These two have known each other their whole lives. Ben sure did know how to push Bea's buttons. The childish nature of these two really showed that neither one really knew how to speak to one another until the end & and one point it seemed as if their relationship was beyond being able to be repaired!

I also love how this book shows that pride can really destroy relationships if you aren't careful. 

All in all this book was still a great read!

The other books in this series are "Courting Cate","Adoring Molly", "Minding Molly", and of course this book here "Becoming Bea".
