Anyway, A Sensible Arrangment is a great read. I really loved the fact her heroine was in her 30's. You don't see that as often and Tracie captured the young hip version of this historical heroine ("hip" isn't probably the correct terminology, but cut me some slack) while also giving her the maturity due someone in their thirties who'd experienced the trials of life.
It IS an arranged marriage story. BUT Tracie doesn't go the route of arranging a marriage to save a ranch. Instead our hero is a bank manager trying to save face with the powers-that-be of the bank who find an eligible bachelor less than seemly to hold such a powerful position. Married and settled is far more preferred. Of course, there is the ranch aspect. This is the West (Colorado) to be precise. And Jake wants to ranch while Marty, our heroine, wants to b as far away from it as she can. That's where she came from, and what she's running from. The memories of a marriage that ended to soon. So it wouldn't be a good idea to tell her new husband she holds his dreams in her hands, would it?
OK! no spoilers! The romance between the two is classic Tracie Peterson, as are the Spiritual threads, the gently woven plot that keeps you turning pages and the well-scripted scenery.
She has not disappointed with this one-hundredth book, only proven why Peterson is the MASTER of everything Historical Romance.
