"A Sensible Arrangement," by Tracie Peterson

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?

I am a big fan of Tracie Peterson's work but this book wasn't one of my favourite's of hers.  This is the first in " Lone Star Brides" series and I found it very slow to get going.  However what I really didn't like about it was the way it ended.  I felt the ending was not complete and left you hanging mid air wondering what happened.

Its an easy book to read and the story is easy to follow; the lead characters are people you can relate to also.  The story itself was just lacking substance to my mind.

Stars out of 5 : 3 not the worst book I have read, but not the best either.  The book was not Tracie's best work.
