The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck by Kathleen Y'Barbo

I received a complementary copy of this book from Water Brook through their Blogging for Books program.  The main characters are fun, and the story is interesting.  The surrounding characters are very flat, and I felt like there were plot points that I was missing.  Charlotte has her heart set on getting an education and the working in her fathers business, but her father wants her to get married.  They come to an agreement wherein they are both satisfied.  Charlotte must marry Alex if she is to work for her father.  The two know and like each other, but both enter the marriage for business purposes. The story was a little far-fetched in that they obviously like each other quite a bit, but they don't want to be married, and are doing everything they can to avoid the marriage.  Overall it was a light, fun read.  I would give it 3/5 stars.
