Book description: "Despite her spoiled upbringing, twenty-year-old Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious. She simply believes a marriage should be built on true love. Her father, however, thinks she's wasted enough time searching for the perfect husband. He wants to marry her off to one of his business partners--who is seventeen years her senior--an idea that is out of the question for Lenore.
Kolbein Booth, a young lawyer from Chicago, arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister, who he believes may have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry, he storms into the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her captures his attention.
Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out..."
My review: Tracie Peterson is one of my favorite authors, but this book does not live up to her usual quality. The book description is deceiving, because most of the book centers around Abrianna, who is Lenore's best friend. The little bit of story that there is for Lenore is very shallow and unrealistic. However, I did enjoy Abrianna. Her character has a lot more depth and her story is what kept me reading. I was also very disappointed in the ending. The story shifted back to Lenore, ended quickly, and left many loose ends; one of the loose ends being Abrianna. I will only be reading the next book in the series in the hopes that Abrianna's story will be finished. This book is just not what I have come to expect from Tracie Peterson. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
