I was provided this book for free by the publisher in exchange for a review.
A Sensible Arrangement
Marty is a widow from Texas who is looking for an escape so she agrees to marry Jake Wythe, a widower from Colorado whose boss wants him to get married. Their marriage was an arrangement of convenience and yet they slowly find themselves falling in love. Marty was a feisty main character that I really identified with. She doesn’t let anyone push her around and yet she is also kind, loving, and thoughtful.
I enjoyed this book for the most part. I loved that the characters were both from Texas and both had a deep love for their home. I liked following Marty’s journey to finding God again and I didn’t feel like the religious part was overdone as it is in some Christian novels. The only thing I didn’t feel was the love story. I knew the characters were supposed to be falling in love and yet it wasn’t believable. It seemed like they just jumped from like to love over a very short time and with very little interaction with each other. Overall I enjoyed the book, but wouldn’t read it again.
