Book Review: A Sensible Arrangement

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 
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?

My Opinion
I have been reading Tracie Peterson's books since I high school and she was one of the reasons I fell in love with historical fiction - her books have always been amazing and her 100th book: A Sensible Arrangement was no different!

I always love the "mail order" bride story line because it is so unbelievable that that really happened and I give so much credit to those marriages that stayed together without even dating or knowing each other before!

I loved cheering with Jake and Marty as they begin their marriage in a tumultuous time in our country's history and I loved the little history lesson I also got!

This book was a great mix of history, romance, drama and love and Tracie writes the same amazing books as she did 100 books ago!
