About The Book:
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.
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.
About The Author:
Tracie Peterson has been a favorite author of mine for many years, and when I found out that her most recent release, A Sensible Arrangement, was her 100th release, I knew it would be one that I would absolutely have to read. It is the first book in the Lone Star Brides Series and if the rest of the series is like this first book it will become a fantastic series to be sure.
The characters are so fun, with several memorable primary characters like Marty and Jake, as well as several secondary characters complement them so well. The story captures you from the first pages and while the book does not have a "clean" end, it sets up for the next book in the series nicely.
There is mystery and romance within the book that are nicely woven together, so as to not be overwhelming and a subtle spiritual underlying them as well. Healing from the past is a strong them and something all readers can relate to.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase A Sensible Arrangement at your favorite Christian book retailer from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
