Savannah is tired of the dating scene, even though she wants to get married and have a family. She knows her mother will never move on with her own life as long as Savannah is single. Savannah goes to see a matchmaker, specializing in setting up couples who meet at the altar. At first, she thinks Scott is a dream come true, but his blundering soon makes her crazy. 
Scott, a Montana bison rancher, doesn't have time to find a wife. His work is all-encompassing. Besides, he tends to have a hard time getting women to go out with him more than once. When he runs into a matchmaker he's known all his life, he tells her about the problems he's had to see if she can help him. When he meets Savannah at the altar, his heart stops for a moment. She's exactly what he's looking for. Will their diverse backgrounds keep them apart? Or will they be able to work through their differences to make their marriage a loving relationship? 
I have been a Kristen Osbourne fan for a while, but I was very disappointed in this one. This is not at all the same quality of work she normally puts out. They went from being "Christians" and that being an important part of their lives to basically dropping religion altogether and not acting like Christians at all. Scott went from being a gentle sweet guy to a bumbling idiot who I was almost sure would be willing to rape his new wife if she didn't give in and have sex with him...yet we're supposed to see him as "patient" He wasn't. At all.

Savannah is portrayed as perfect and as if she does no wrong, I didn't see that at all. She was whiny and unreasonable. There's all this drama over whether or not she'll work and I felt like they were both way out of line. I stay home and love my vocation, but I definitely wanted to punch Scott over his asinine comments...and then Savannah for saying that she would be "wasting" her degree. I assure you, my degree is far from wasted.

There was very little I liked about this. She has other books that are far better than this one. I don't know what happened here, but it fell far short of her normal level of writing.
