A Sensible Arrangement
by Tracie Peterson
ABOUT THIS 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?
Welcome to the campaign launch for Tracie Peterson’s 100th book! A Sensible Arrangement launches Tracie’s new Texas-based series, Lone Star Brides, that’s sure to please. As a special treat, devoted fans will be able to catch a glimpse of several popular characters from previous series.
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
I Love mail order brides, and I Love Tracie Peterson books so I knew this one was going to be awesome! And I was especially honored to review this, Ms. Peterson’s 100 book! Wow, what an accomplishment. I haven’t read them all but I plan too! Marty and Jake had an arranged marriage of convenience and the arrangement was mutual. But Marty had no idea the her life would change so drastically. With Jake being a bank manager, he had to keep a high profile, so it was a team of paid employees in the house and a personal maid to do things Marty was perfectly capable of taking care of herself. I really enjoyed each of these characters. the butler and the housekeeper kept me laughing throughout the book, and Alice and Marty had a special relationship. And Marty and Jake was just friends of course, or were they? They seemed to be enjoying all of the time they were spending together. But there were secrets, and when those secrets were revealed, what would happen then?
This entire book was so very enjoyable. Ms. Peterson is one of the best in storytelling, and it shows in this book. Oh and I didn’t mention the historical setting and the vivid descriptions of each scene, adding more pleasure to the book. This is a must read if you enjoy historical fiction. You surely do not want to miss this one.
