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. . . .

Reviews for Arranged
As a story, it was filled with an engaging story that I was enjoyed. The twist which was introduced in the end of the second part was interesting. However, I was disappointed in the last 1/3 of the book. It was flat, self loathing and the characters were washed out as they were lost in hope and in action.
I have to say that I enjoyed the characters growth especially Sarah and Jack. They were interesting and the norther Gilbert and his cute family were a delighted read, but Anne, the main character was annoying whiner and a very bitter person. I don't like nor did I care for her happiness. read more
