Perfectly Matched Book Review

About the Book
Anna Olsen knows it's time to leave her sister's increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following both 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? 

My Review

This book was good, though not my favorite. I have not read the previous books to this series but it could easily be read alone. I did like the characters and the fact that the man was so OCD, it's usually the woman in the story. I enjoyed reading this marriage of convenience and how they go through the typical newlywed issues. The first part of the book is great and I love the setting! The second half of the book seemed to take forever and became very predictable. I wish I would have liked it more but I give it about 3 1/2 stars.
