Perfectly Matched - A Review

Anna Olsen decides to follow in the footsteps of both of her sisters and become a mail-order bride. She answers the advertisement of a man in Denver, Edward Parker. Anna and Edward are as different as night and day. He likes things done perfectly and on a precise schedule. She's impulsive, prone to daydream, and has a heart for animals. On their wedding day, Edward even gives Anna a list of chores he expects her to do on a daily basis. Can these two people who are so different find love and happiness with each other?

This is the third and final book in the Blue Willow Brides series. I've enjoyed each and every one of the books, but I think that Anna's story is my favorite. Anna's tender heart shows through in how she adopts stray dogs and cats and hopes Edward will go along with it. Edward really doesn't know what to think of Anna - or her animals. I have to give him credit. He does change and grow through the book. He learns that things don't have to be perfect. I loved the way that they managed to find their footing in their marriage. I also loved the way that Anna set about starting an SPCA society in Denver. True this is the third book in a series, but it stands alone. Each book can be enjoyed without having read the others in the series.

I received this book for free from Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of mail order bride stories, Tracie Peterson, Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer, and historical fiction.

Rating - 4 stars. It's really a 4.5 star book.

Available October 2013 at your local bookstore from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
