Perfectly Matched… Maggie Brendan

Perfectly Matched…..

by: Maggie Brendan


His life runs like clockwork. Hers is a spontaneous adventure.
But God’s timing is always perfect.

Anna Olsen knows it’s time to leave her sister’s increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following both sisters’ examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife.

Almost immediately it’s painfully apparent that Anna and Edward are very different. Anna is a free spirit who would rather be painting and enjoying the company of friends than cleaning house. Edward is a consummate perfectionist who, on their wedding day, hands Anna a list of chores that need to be done around the house daily.

Can this mismatched couple see past their differences to a harmonious future? Or will their disparate passions create obstacles neither is willing to surmount?








I absolutely loved this book! Anna Olsen moves out of her sisters house and moves to Denver to become a mail-order bride. Anna and her new husband Edward was as different as day and night. Edward was annoying with his ‘perfect’ living. He has a list for everything, and he ‘surprised’ his new wife with a list of her expectations of keeping the house clean, cooking and so forth, and even having specific times for everything. And Anna was more of a free spirit, she did things on an impulse, cleaning and keeping such a clean house wasn’t really her top priority. These two had a lot of learn if they were gonna make it as husband and wife.


Following these two characters was a trip! The characters were awesome, and I loved the interaction between them. Anna was so feisty and outgoing that and even though she tried very hard to do everything Edward wanted her to do, she kept running into trouble. This book will make you laugh, and cry and you thank this journey with Edward and Anna as they work out their very different differences. If you are looking for a good light read that is fun, funny and full thoroughly enjoyable, you will love Perfectly Matched my Maggie Brendan. You will be pleasantly entertained for several hours.
