"Then Comes Marriage" is a different kind of book - while the plot is a standard if too-often used one (arranged marriage for convenience sake) and a bit unbelievable (arranged marriages in the twenty-first century??), the characters in this book are as different and unusual as they come. If you have had your fill of the usual storyline and protaginists, than you may find this book a welcome change of pace.
I liked the heroine very much - she is not your silly, cookie-cutter spoiled brat, even though she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth - she makes sure to make that point over and over again. And she even comes across that way as well in this story - she has more guts, brains, and maturity than your average romance heroine. And Bram - when he first makes his appearance I thought he was really awful - but never judge by first impressions, they tell you, and Bram does sort of grow on you as the book goes on. It helps that I wasn't so shocked by the hero's obsession with his wife's grave thing - having encountered this exact story-line in the long-ago published "Red Threads" by Rex Stout - and seen that story resolved well.
There are some loose ends to this story - the arranged marriage, the improbability of the hero being both a computer/science genius/geek and star football player?? - no, this book was not high on the realism scale.
The style of this book was well-written and funny, but the somewhat slow pace and the obvious implausibility of parts of the plot turned this book into a four star, for me.
If you are looking for a romance that is somewhat off the beaten path, unusual characters, and high quality writing, I would definitely recommend "Then Comes Marriage".
