Marty Dandridge Olson is ready to leave behind the pain of the past.
Answering an advertisement for a "Lone Star bride," she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn't know.
Jake Wythe is the man waiting for her.
Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.
When missing money and a collapsing economy threaten his job, Jake's yearning to return to ranching grows ever stronger, much to Marty's dismay. But a fondness has grown between them, as well, further complicating matters.
What will happen when their relationship shifts in unexpected ways . . . and dreams and secrets collide?

I truly love this book!!! And I LOVE this author!!! Tracie Peterson has always been one of my all time favorite authors! And this, her 100th book, is one of my favorites of her works. It has made it to My Favorite Books list! Tracie's characters touched my heart immediately and Jake, the hero of this tale, stole my heart completely! I love how she made Marty's character a tough woman that can take care of herself, and others, instead of becoming the victim always in need of rescue! Yet, though she is toughened by loss and the ways of ranch life in 1892, she still has a huge heart and loves very deeply. OH but the cliff hanger! I must know what happens next and can't wait for A Moment in Time to release in June!!! Mystery's are mixed within A Sensible Arrangement's plot as missing money and strange threats abound! I truly enjoy how Tracie weaves The Word and God's messages throughout the story. Showing how He loves us through it all, even our anger and hurt. This is a fabulous read, with an easy pace, and filled with great characters, an intriguing plot, secrets, pain, forgiveness, lies, love, uncertainty, friendship, repentance, fears and more! I highly recommend it!
