Anyone who has ever looked for love in all the wrong places will love McKenzie’s latest tale of romance found in the place one least expects it. A real page-turner, Arranged is a perfect beach read. McKenzie will have readers laughing and crying right along with her heroine.

Professionally, Anne Blythe has it all. She has a great job writing for a magazine and a book deal in the making. However, her love life isn’t running as smoothly as her professional life. Fresh from a messy breakup with her last boyfriend, Anne runs into a couple of her past ones. After this veritable parade of “boyfriends past,” Anne wonders if maybe she is the one with the problem. When she finds a business card on the street for a dating service called Blythe and Company, she figures she doesn’t have anything to lose and decides to give it a shot. She quickly finds out that they are not a dating service. They are an arranged-marriage service. After much contemplation, Anne decides to use the exclusive company’s service, and hilarity ensues.
