A Sensible Arrangement
I very much enjoy reading books by Tracie Peterson, in my personal library, I probably have more of her books than any other author. They're always so well written and entertaining!
I did enjoy this book immensely, as always Peterson's characters were well written, and deep. (Which is something of a trend in Peterson's books, she consistently writes her characters with a depth that we don't often see in women's historical romance novels)
In "A sensible arrangement" we meet Marty, who's trying to run away from the pain caused by her first marriage and subsequent widowhood, by answering a mail order bride ad in a paper from the city, Marty hopes to find peace away from the memories of her late husband.
Jake was spurned by his first marriage and has no desire to wed again and take a chance with his heart, but when his employers at the bank pressure him to take a wife, he come to a companionship agreement with Marty. Both are determined to have a marriage in friendship only, but as hearts begin to open, faith and hope arise and begin to open the way to love.
This was a fantastic book, the only complaint I have about it, was that I feel it ended too early! The story seemed to suddenly drop off without closure, so I'll be looking forward (and hoping) to see more developments with these characters!
