Book Review - "The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck"

Kathleen Y'Barbo's 40th book, "The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck," is sure to delight readers! Charlotte is bucking the treand and normal societal expectations for young women in the 1880's as she wishes to remain single, go to college, earn a degree and work with her father in their family company. However, her father is not in agreement with that and would like to see her in a nice marriage. Charlotte's father meets Alex, an astronomer and formulates a plan that will solve all of their problems, Alex's family name will be saved, Charlotte will be able to attend college and Charlotte and Alex will be married. Charlotte and Alex are not in total agreement with this as they plan to have the marriage annulled, but suddenly this does not become the plan.

Y'Barbo has created a fun read! Charlotte's stubbornness and her spirit come alive on the pages and she is a loveable character that you will enjoy getting to know and reading about! The character's interactions are humorous and yet touching at times as well and the characters will have you drawn into their lives and keep you there from the beginning of the story to the end. A great, fun read for this summer!
