A Sensible Arrangement by Tracie Peterson a Book Review

ASA-Peterson-e1393348509109About 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.


My Review: This is the first book in the Lone Star Brides series and also Traci’s 100th book.

Traci’s two main characters are looking for stability, appearances, and a change in life more than love.  A marriage of convenience which becomes much more.

I felt like A Sensible Arrangement was a build up to coming storylines.

Marty came across as a self sufficient woman who knew her own mind. She was still struggling from the death of her first husband and just wanted a place where she could remove herself from the memories.

Jake is a a man who wants to move back to Texas and live a completely different life.

It was an interesting book and I would like to know more about Marty and Jake’s previous life.

I often think Traci doesn’t write enough books. If you’re a fan of Traci’s then by all means read it and wait for the next in the series.
