    Confusing and Disappointing Story

    I haven't read too many of Sheri WhiteFeather's books, but the previous ones I have read were pretty enjoyable. However, Marriage of Revenge left me feeling confused and extremely dissatisfied. I don't intend to spoil for anyone the ending of this book, but I want to point out a few things that left me feeling the way I did and also add my own comments as to why they didn't work. Well, immediately upon cracking open the cover, I was introduced to Talia and Aaron, and the reason why their bitter at each other. We learn that Aaron and Talia dated for five years but that Talia broke it off when she realized that Aaron wouldn't ever marry her. All because of a deathbed promise that Aaron made to his father about marrying a woman only from his mother's people. For myself, I became confused when it was made apparent Aaron felt that Talia had betrayed him by breaking up with her and therefore that's why he married some other woman and had a child with her. I don't quite understand the connection as to how Talia was at fault. Plus, aside from being aware of the deathbed promise, Aaron wouldn't take Talia to meet any of his family in all that time they were dating. Aaron is upset at Talia and very bitter, but I can't comprehend why. I mean, what kind of woman would stick around when she realized that after five years the man she loved wouldn't marry her? To top off this confusion, later in the book Talia finally agrees to marry Aaron but she throws at him that she's possibly doing it as revenge against his family. Once again I can't understand this connection. How can Aaron's behavior in choosing to marry another woman be his family's fault, and they be the ones that Talia should take revenge upon? Sorry folks, but I found this book to be just an 'okay' book, and probably not one that I'll likely read again.
