    One thought on “Once Upon an Arranged Marriage”

    1. Another sweet and tender book by Julia Regan. I wanted Cora to be happy and every where she turned her mother was blocking that happiness. She had spend many years as a poor girl and when her family came into money, her mother decided that she couldn't even acknowledge those that she had played with before. She even had to change churches. Joseph Watts had known Cora when they were both children and they had spent carefree days playing in the woods and by the creek. Those days were gone and now [...]

    2. A sweet romance that is well written and very different from your typical romance. If you're looking for a clean, romantic story that pulls at the heart strings this is the book for you. Poor turned wealthy, young lady expected to marry a man of equal status even though her heart belongs to another. A man who has nothing, determined to make a better life for himself, is in love with his childhood friend even though he knows she is above him now. The author does a great job portraying each charac [...]

    3. I loved this book! I got so attached to the characters that when it looked as though Cora was going to please her parents instead of herself and it seemed as though Joseph was lost to her forever I completely lost it and sobbed. My heart was breaking for them. I loved Cora and Joseph. They were in love but circumstances separated them and I was not sure I would get my happy ending. A bittersweet story with wonderful characters. The advice given to them both was the best. Made me question the imp [...]

    4. Beautifully written book. Joseph and Cora have been friends since they were little. Recently Cora's family had gotten higher in the class where Joseph is still trying to stay afloat. He has loved Cora forever but now that she is coming into age he knows she will marry someone from her own class. Cora starts getting courted by a rich man although she only does it to please her mother. Will she marry or go after her heart???

    5. Received an ARC from the author for an honest review. Cora's families station in life has gone up. And now she has new friends and a new life. But none of it made her as happy as she was when they were poorer. Joseph is one of those from her past. Her first childhood love. The feelings for each other are still there. But Cora is now expected to marry within her station. Will she choose love or what is expected of her.

    6. I received an ARC copy in exchange for my honest review. I'm not a huge fan of historical romance but I enjoy other works by this author and read it. I was pleasantly surprised. I would recommend this to other readers.

    7. I received a ARC copy from the author and loved it!! I just finished the book and it was such a wonderful read!!! I would get so engrossed In the book, I was cheering for Cora and Joseph and so wanted to smack her mama. Another wonderful book by Julia Regan!!
