The Marriage Mart series
This series was different in so many ways! For some of the books, it seemed there was a bonus plot. For some of the books, there was an unexpected twist that kept my attention. The books didn’t even go in order from oldest to youngest! In the whole series I found so few editing errors, I never had to stop and figure out what was really meant! I wish more books were as well-written as this series!
