Welcome to another fabulous bookish event. Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine, is our opportunity to celebrate upcoming releases we’re excited about.
Today I’m featuring a book coming out on May 15, 2012. Arranged, by Catherine McKenzie, is a modern day tale of marriage.
Anne Blythe has a great life: a good job, close friends, and a potential book deal for her first novel. When it comes to finding someone to share her life with, however, she just can’t seem to get it right. When her latest relationship implodes, and her best friend announces she’s engaged, Anne impulsively calls what she thinks is a dating service—only to discover that it’s actually an exclusive, and pricey, arranged marriage service. Anne initially rejects the idea, but the more she learns about the service, the more she thinks: Why not? After all, arranged marriages are the norm for millions of women around the world; maybe it could work for her.
A few months later, Anne is traveling to a Mexican resort, where, over the course of a weekend, she meets and then marries Jack. And initially, everything seems to be working out. . . .
Doesn’t that sound intriguing? Now I’m really excited about this one.
What are you waiting for? Come on by and tempt me….
