Mini-Reviews

Becky Sawyer’s life unravels in a single day. Not only does she catch her boyfriend, the man she hoped to marry, lip-locked with another woman, she also receives the gut-wrenching news that her grandfather, the man who raised her, is dying. His last wish? To see her happily married. Heartbroken, Becky seeks inspiration in the pages of the Holy Scriptures. And finds it in the story of Isaac and Rebekah.

If love couldn’t keep his parents together, Luke Masterson wonders what will make a marriage last. He decides to steer clear of all women—especially crazy ones like Becky Sawyer, who employs a friend to find her a husband. But when he feels the dogged promptings of the Holy Spirit to move across the country and marry a complete stranger, it seems love has little to do with it anyway.

With commitment their only foundation, and love constantly thwarted, can an arranged marriage find happiness in the twenty-first century?

Review

I loved the concept of this novel. I was immediately pulled in and eager to see how this book would work. And for the first half of the novel, it did. However, Rebekah got on my nerves. She treated Luke like she was doing him a massive favor and he was being paid millions. Somewhere along the line, she forgot it was all her idea. Luke, of course, was perfect. A perfect hero and and annoying heroine equals an unhappy reader. But! The idea was wonderful!

Review

This book pulled me in immediately. I started this book with the intention of reading a chapter and taking a nap. No nap occurred. The romance of this book just totally pulled me in. I have merely one complaint with this book: the author “hides” an important fact for a while and that fact bothered me so much that I questioned whether this was really a Christian novel. However, once the fact was revealed, I was cool. I just didn’t understand why she decided to hide that info.
