Anne Blythe has a great life: a good job, close friends, and a potential book deal for her first novel. When it comes to finding someone to share her life with, however, she just can’t seem to get it right. When her latest relationship implodes, and her best friend announces she’s engaged, Anne impulsively calls what she thinks is a dating service—only to discover that it’s actually an exclusive, and pricey, arranged marriage service. Anne initially rejects the idea, but the more she learns about the service, the more she thinks: Why not?After all, arranged marriages are the norm for millions of women around the world; maybe it could work for her.
A few months later, Anne is traveling to a Mexican resort, where, over the course of a weekend, she meets and then marries Jack. And initially, everything seems to be working out. . . .
This is the best book I’ve read all year. I want to go back and read the authors first book because I loved this so much. Her writing is fresh, the characters real and relatable, and the plot line unlike anything I’ve read before.
Usually romantic dramas or even chick flick movies have a beautiful main character that the writers make up some silly flaw such as clumsiness as a reason why she is alone and her life is horrible. Then all of a sudden she meets the right man and poof! She’s a knock out and nobody’s noticed it until now. It all works out in the end and its amazing! This is not that book. Thank goodness.
I don’t want to ruin the ending by telling you more, so just read it yourself. My only complaint would be the language. It’s not only that I cringe when I read it, but it doesn’t really go with the characters personality either. So just consider yourself warned.
Arranged by Catherine Mckenzie is available on Amazon
