A Sensible Arrangement - Tracie Peterson

About the 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 Thoughts:

Tracie Peterson is a well-known Christian Fiction author...can you ever go wrong with any of her books?  I love the whole "mail order bride" subject in this book...I tend to romanticize the whole ordeal.  I'm sure if I had been alive during those times my opinions may have been different!

Following along as Marty and Jake forge a relationship sometimes gives the feeling that we're on the outside looking in, peering in through their personal windows.  But then the mystery of the missing money draws the reader in and you feel less like an intruder, and more like a treasured friend as you help them sort things out along the way.

I give this book 4 stars and would definitely recommend it to Tracie Peterson fans!
