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.

In the conclusion to the Blue Willow Brides trilogy, Maggie Brendan tells the story of Anna, the youngest Olson sister. Anna arrives in Denver to wed quirky Edward Parker. Edward and Anna find themselves both attracted to and aggravated by one another, as they have completely different personalities. They must learn the art of compromise and put love for one another first in order to make their marriage a success.
The best part of these stories is that they all have main characters with a variety of personality or behavioral disorders. These issues are presented in a relatively honest and realistic way (although none are severe cases), especially given the time frame. I enjoyed Perfectly Matched the most of this series, as there were several interesting subplots, and the romantic tension between Edward and Anna held my attention.

This was a delightful read -- the story line was interesting, relationships were developed at a good pace. I read a lot of crime mystery novels and this was a refreshing change of pace. All of the characters were quite likable and I love the particular area of early disharmony for the main characters. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Christian novels.
