THE MARRIAGE OBLIGATION was a story that started out really well but by the halfway point had a hard time holding my attention. And even though it's the last in a four book mini-series (and the twelfth in "The Marriage Maker" series overall) it can easily be read as a standalone just fine. In fact, while our two matchmakers (Lady Elana aka The Raven & Sir Stirling) both make quick appearances early on, they are only minor roles and other than that we don't even see them again.
As for the story itself, it was somewhat disjointed and as the story progressed I found the pacing really odd. And while I prefer a story that doesn't take place in just a matter of days, the timeframe for this novella jumped all over the place. I couldn't even tell you how long everything took because it would go from days, to weeks, to months, and back again. As for Cornelia and Preston, I thought they were both really kind and lovable individuals. However, I didn't sense any real chemistry between them but instead I felt they made better friends than an actual couple. And other than a few kisses near the end there is virtually no passion and little romance between them either.
Still, I have to admit that I wanted them to find happiness however improbable it might have seemed. And though this novella does contain some subject matter that would be rather heart-wrenching most of the time, in this story it just failed to ever truly tug at my emotions. There was also the ending which was strangely abrupt and felt incomplete. Honestly, the characters are what saved it for me, but I'm not sure I'll read more by this author as the writing just did not flow well.
