Marty Olson is about to do the absurd. When bank manager Jake Wythe advertises for a bride Marty decides she has had enough of her aad life in Texas; and so she leaves for the greener pastures of Colorado to become Mrs. Jake Wythe. Without telling her sister of her plans plus hiding from Jake the fact that she owns a coveted ranch in Texas Marty’s deception grows rather large. Yet it is a marriage of convenience as both agreed on beforehand. And as far as either is concerned it will stay that way. It will be a tough road ahead of the pair and it would seem Providence has other things in store for them.
Tracie Peterson is normally an author whose books I devour from page one to the end. Normally. This is her second latest series(I dunno; her less recent books are by far my favorites) I’ve attempted and have found it very wanting. For one thing it seemed like zilch was happening and it just continued to drag. None of the characters really tugged at this reader’s heart strings and I soon lost interest in what happened in their lives. After determining so much that I would finish finally gave up half way through the book and, like Marty, moved on to greener pastures in the form of another book. As a side note I think A Sensible Arrangement would appeal to Janette Oke fans because it seemed to me that there were some of the qualities of Ms. Oke’s writing to be found in this story.
