A Sensible Arrangement is Book 1 in the Lone Star Brides Series by Tracie Peterson. Had I not know this before reading the book, I would have been terribly disappointed in the ending. It absolutely left me wanting to know what happens next!
Tracie Peterson is a trusted name in Christian fiction. I was first introduced to her when I read her Yukon Quest Series. I love how she continues a story through several books and characters. The characters in this book are memorable and interesting. In A Sensible Arrangement, we meet Marty Olson who has answered an advertisement for a marriage of convenience to Jake Wythe. Marty needs a way to leave her past and loss behind and Jake needs a wife to help his career. I love stories where a couple falls in love after they marry. It’s always a fun read.
My favorite part of the story is when Marty saves the day in an act of heroism that I totally didn’t see coming! I laughed out loud. I definitely enjoyed this book. However, I do wish the relationship between Marty and Jake had been visited longer. Their interaction seemed limited.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a series, and the opportunity to follow characters over time. I am anxious to read the next book in this series, A Moment in Time. I was given a complimentary copy of this book by its publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
