Tracie Peterson celebrates 100 books with an iPad Mini Giveaway & A SENSIBLE ARRANGEMENT Live Webcast Event & Review!

About the book: A Lone Star Brides book.

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?

My review:  It's been quite a while since I'd read a Tracie Peterson book and this one made me question why it had been so long!  I enjoyed Marty's spunk but felt frustrated with her penchant for lying.  It's pointed out very clearly that her lying was wrong, however, and I really liked how it was dealt with.  There's a very strong faith message with a good discussion about why God allows suffering and evil as Marty still struggles with her husband's death and anger at God four years later.  I really liked Jake and their quirky servants, especially wise Alice.  There was some suspense as Alice is being threatened and they're not sure how to stop it.  There are also some sweet romantic moments, but I can't imagine how terrifying it would be to marry someone you'd never met!  Who knows what kind of person you could end up with?!  I enjoyed the historical elements, too, as we see what was happening with the economy and the value of silver, especially in this silver mining community.  Not all of the story's sub-plots are wrapped up neatly, but I'm sure will be in following books.  I definitely recommend this book if you like historical fiction!

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
