The Perfect Wife by Lynsay Sands

Spending years on Crusade, Paen Gerville returned home to mourn his brothers death. Collecting and then marrying his betrothed sounded an easy task, but didn’t turn out that way. Preparing for her betrothed to come collect her, marry her and escort her to her new home, Avelyn Straughton knew she was not the ideal bride because of her size. With her limited time she made the decision to make her wedding dress a tad smaller than she currently wore, in the hopes that she would fit in it by the day. Taking it in turned out to be a mistake, one that her cousins would never let her live down. As one incident after another beset the newly wed couple, they began to wonder if the fates or just her clumsiness were working against them. After all, these just were not like her.

First Lynsay Sands for me. I enjoyed the characters and their interactions. Finally, characters that, while ignorant of some things, weren’t complete idiots (show of my unfortunate reading selection lately more than anything to do with this book). The writing style was easy to follow and the honor, confusion and humor all came through so great. I am very interested to read more of Lynsay Sands historicals as well as finding out if her paranormals are as well written. ( )
