Perfectly Matched Review!!!

Perfectly Matched by Maggie Brendan

Book Description:
Anna Olsen knows it's time to leave her sister's increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following her sisters' examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife. Almost immediately it's painfully apparent that Anna and Edward are very different. Anna is a free spirit who would rather be painting and enjoying the company of friends than cleaning house. Edward is a consummate perfectionist who, on their wedding day, hands Anna a list of chores that need to be done around the house daily.

Can this mismatched couple see past their differences to a harmonious future? Or will their disparate passions create obstacles neither is willing to surmount?

Maggie Brendan closes her Blue Willow Brides series with a heartwarming tale of true love despite misunderstanding, showing readers that God's timing is always perfect.

My opinion:
Easy read.  For me this was a relatively easy read.  Maggie depicts married life (especially new married life) realistically.  Sickeningly sweet at times LOL! and fighting like cats and dogs at others; as two people with completely different personalities strive to learn how to cohabitate.  I really enjoyed the mix of the characters hobbies, occupations, and interests.  From painting to watch making it has a broad spectrum of interesting topics.  Especial the addition of the ASPCA.  I really enjoyed the addition of all the animals!  I love to read a book with animals from an author that knows animals!  From their good aspects to their somewhat crazy mishaps, Maggie gets them all when writing about the four legged friends.  I also really like how the characters grow and change throughout the book and how they overcome difficulties.  Plus the setting for me is an added bonus!  I love Colorado and really enjoyed Denver!  After reading this book I long to visit again.  :)  Love is in the air all over Denver in this sweet read!

Soundtrack:  "Star Spangled Banner (The National Anthem)" by US Coast Guard Band, "Holy Holy Holy! Lord God Almighty - Church Organ" by Faithful Fathers, "He Leadeth Me, O Blessed Thought" by Discovery Singers, and "Onward Christian Soldiers" from Various Artist
