Twice a Bride

Book Title: Twice a Bride
Author: Mona Hodgson
Genre: Christian, Romance, Historical Romance, Christian Fiction, Historical Fiction, Series
Series: The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek #4
Publisher: WaterBrook Press
Pub Date: October 2, 2012 (320 Pages, Paperback)
Book Source: Won on the Early Reviewers in Librarything

Synopsis:
Full of resolve, young widow Willow Peterson decides to pursue her dreams to be an artist as she settles into a new life in the growing mountain town of Cripple Creek. When she lands a job working as a portrait painter with handsome entrepreneur and photographer Trenton Van Der Veer, the road before Willow seems to be taking a better-than-anticipated turn.

With questions tugging at several hearts in town, including the Sinclair Sisters’ beloved Miss Hattie, change is traveling down the tracks as several unexpected visitors make their way out West. Will the new arrivals threaten the deep family bonds of the Sinclair sisters and the roots of love that are just taking hold for Willow?

Filled with the resonating questions that all women face, this romance awakens hope against grief, love against loss, and dreams against life’s unexpected turns.

My Thoughts:

This is fourth of the series and I loved it every much. This book deals with Sinclair’s sister father and Willow. Mrs. Hattie is also involved as well. The sisters all face different things in the book.

 

You learn about Ida and Tucker Raines a bit about them. You lean about each of the Sinclair sisters or about their family. This book is mostly about Harlan Sinclair and Mrs. Hattie, mostly about Willow Peterson as well. Tucker’s sister.

 

The book is about two widows and a second chance at love. There are other surpries though out the book. I really enjoyed this book along the with the series. Now understand that I have yet to read the first two books in this series. I read and own the last two books. Those books are called “The Bride That Wore Blue”, “Twice the Bride”.
