An unusual arrangement brought them together. Their clashing personalities are likely to drive them apart. Is it remotely possible that love could take them both by surprise?
Brandon Murphy is stuck. He works alone every day, out in the woods, exactly as he wanted. Trouble is, he hadn’t counted on it becoming so…mundane. So when he receives an unusual request—to show up as the arranged fiancé of an heiress in trouble—he figures he may as well. After all, they’ll have six months to decide whether to go through with the marriage. It might just be the spark his life’s been missing.
And oh, are there sparks! Just not the sort he was hoping for.
Megan Alexander is livid. Not only has her father driven away the fiancé of her choosing, but her mother has written to a complete stranger, asking him to come and fill that now-vacant role. What modern woman would consider such an arrangement? Determined not to comply with the insane deal, Megan comes up with a plan of her own: drive the crazy man who agreed to such an idea away—preferably at a run.
From their first disastrous meeting, both Brandon and Megan are certain they will never get married. Ever. But Megan’s plans for her future rely on Daddy’s goodwill, so she needs to see the six months through. And Brandon gave his promise on that time frame; he’ll be a man of his word—even if it kills him.
Six months and they can walk away. Because there’s no way they’d ever consider the alternative…is there?

‘Were these the lives they were supposed to be living? Did either trust the goodness of God? Were they seeking a life that would glorify their Maker?’
Here we have the next to last Murphy Brothers story. Brandon Murphy receives a strange request from his mom, who has received it from a long time friend. Dare he accept? Not likely. Not his thing. But he feels God leading him that very way. And so Jennifer Rodewald leads us along on another Murphy Brothers tale, every bit as rich and full as the ones that went before. This is an amazing family. From the very first brother, I’ve been all in. It’s a wonderful thing to watch as they all have submitted fully to the will of God for their lives. Oh, it’s not been a bit easy for any of them or those they loved, but it’s a beautiful thing to watch. Rodewald always takes us on a journey that no only makes for a sound and totally enjoyable and blessing-filled read, but touches our own hearts with its profound spiritual themes. Well done!
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is completely my own.

Can the series easily be read as a standalone? This sounds really good!
They can be read alone but they are fully appreciated read in order.
