When Maddy's grandfather arranges for her to have a HUSBAND BY ARRANGEMENT (4), she trades in her frumpy smocks for vampy attire and, with hair dye and heavy makeup, turns herself into a most inappropriate bride in an attempt to scare off her prospective groom. Dex Fitzgerald does not know what to think when he sees Maddy. He doesn't want to marry her either but is enjoying the energy and excitement Maddy is bringing into his colorless life. Sara Wood's latest is a delightful, fun tale with fantastic characters that will keep you turning the pages.
