Product Description

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

    I enjoyed this last book in the Blue Willow Series. The free-spirited youngest sister becomes a mail-order bride, just like her two older sisters. She bites off a little more than she can chew when she marries an OCD clock maker. She's more adventurous than he is so she really adds some spice to his life. Their love blossoms after the marriage, as is the case with a mail-order bride story, and their faith in God blossoms, as well. I can't wait for Maggie's next book! A word of caution: there are some PG-13ish scenes in the book that might not be suitable for young pre-teen girls. So moms might want to make sure they read it first. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I usually enjoy mail-order bride stories, but this one didn't keep my interest. The pacing was slow, bogged down by boring details. The plot was not compelling and the characters seemed two dimensional.

    Anna is a mail order bride and her groom is not what she expected. Where she is easy-going and loves adventure Edward is all about lists and order. Can they over come their differences to be the perfect match?

    This is the third book in the series. I have not read the other two but this book can easily be read as a stand alone. This book was a little slow going at first but it was a good read.

    What I liked: Anna and Edward were opposites which made the book fun. The list he gave Anna on their wedding day made me laugh. I liked how both characters grew and changed as the book went a long. I liked how the book had marriage be a two-way street and that both parties need to give and take to make it work.

    What I did not like: This book was a little slow in the middle. I also thought Anna was being a little selfish when it came to helping animals. Even though things worked out in the end she never seemed to show that maybe she should have understood that bring home all those strays was a little crazy. She was very much pushing Edwards good graces.

    Over all this was an enjoyable book. The plot was a little slow at times but the ending was good. An enjoyable Christian historical fiction.

    I enjoyed this sweet romance. From the first words of Perfectly Matched to the last, we get to see the growth of two people as they struggled through the highs and lows of marriage - whether by mail-order or by choice. Ms. Brendan's way of showing how marriage is never about one person's desires made me appreciate my spouse more.

    Maggie Brendan in her new book “Perfectly Matched” Book Three in The Blue Willow Brides series published by Revell Books takes us into the life of Anna Olsen in 1888.

    From the back cover: His life runs like clockwork. Hers is a spontaneous adventure. But God’s timing is always perfect.

    Anna Olsen knows it’s time to leave her sister’s increasingly crowded house and start a life of her own. Following her 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?

    Maggie Brendan closes her Blue Willow Brides series with a heartwarming tale of true love despite misunderstanding, showing readers that God’s timing is always perfect.

    I like Mail Order Bride stories. Maybe it is because they portray the woman with such a sense of adventure and trust. She has to pack up everything, say goodbye to family, probably for the last time, and move to a different City and State to marry someone she did not know nor had yet to meet. This is what Anna Olsen agrees to as she travels out to Denver. Anna and her new husband, Edward, are two different personalities. Ms. Brendan has done it again. She has provided a story that has real substance to it, as to what makes a good marriage, while showing us the fun in learning about another person. I think that “Perfectly Matched” is a winner and may be Maggie Brendan’s best story to date. ”Perfectly Matched” is a wonderful, sweet story with power and depth that will keep you flipping pages. I liked it a lot and am sorry that this series is over however I am looking forward to the next book by this highly talented author.
