Book Review: A Sensible Arrangement
A Lone Star Brides book.
Marty Dandridge Olson is ready to leave behind the pain of the past.
Answering an advertisement for a “Lone Star bride,” she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn’t know.
Jake Wythe is the man waiting for her.
Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.
When missing money and a collapsing economy threaten his job, Jake’s yearning to return to ranching grows ever stronger, much to Marty’s dismay. But a fondness has grown between them, as well, further complicating matters.
What will happen when their relationship shifts in unexpected ways… and dreams and secrets collide?
Purchase a copy and learn more at Tracie’s website.
A fun book, nothing too new, but still a nice, relaxing read.
Jake and Marty get married, but have different visions for their future, the question is....will they return to Texas as Jake dreams, or will Marty get her wish and never return?
Jake works for some interesting folks, I can't say I'd want to work for them, they tend to run his life, and he tends to bend to their will, but for how long?
There are enough twists and turns to keep this book fun and while you can pretty much figure out the outcome, it doesn't take away from the joy of reading this book!
**I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Litfuse.
