Need a mental break? I don't know about you, but I love to read fiction when I just need to chill out and have some downtime. I just finished reading “A Sensible Arrangement” by Tracie Peterson, and it was perfect for a little rest and renewal!
“A Sensible Arrangement” is about a young, Texas widow named Marty who decides to move to Colorado and enter into an arranged marriage–a marriage for the sake of convenience.
Marty's new husband, Jake, is a godly banker who dreams of ranching one day. In the meantime, however, Jake needs Marty to help him “play the game” by being a society wife. Then the other society wives show their true colors, the economy tanks and… hmmm, what happens next? You'll have to get the book!
I did not know it, but this is Tracie Peterson's 100th novel! (Can you imagine? 100 books!) I loved it. If you're a critic, I can say that I would have enjoyed a little more interaction between Marty and Jake, but there was still good interaction. There were very interesting twists and turns in the plot that could be setting it up for a sequel. I'd definitely read the sequel if Ms. Peterson comes out with one.
In summary, I had a ball reading this book! I'm not a professional book reviewer, but I am a professional I-need-to-chill-out-er, and this book was perfect for that. I read it over a couple of evenings as a way to de-stress after a long day's work, and it was a winner. Need some R&R like me? Head on over to Amazon and pick it up in paperback or on Kindle!
