Twice A Bride (The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek #4) by Mona Hodgson

Oh how I loved my journey with the Sinclair sisters!  I am so sad for it to end, it was truly magical to live through them for four books!

 Love lost doesn’t mean love lost forever.
Can unexpected romance deliver a second chance for two deserving widows?

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:

First let me mention how stunning I think the covers are of Ms. Hodgson's novels - they are so beautiful and portray perfectly what the Sinclair sisters must have looked like.  They provide a great visual for the characters to come!

I am in awe of this author and her books - she is dynamic and interesting and writes about characters exactly like her! 

This adventure started with the first two sisters coming to Cripple Creek, Colorado and ends with two honorary sisters (the sister-in-law to Ida and the heartwarming boardinghouse owner Ms. Hattie) finding love in the town in a most unlikely place.

All of the books are love stories of the Wild West and it Christian fiction like this has quickly captured my heart!

I love the plots, L-O-V-E the settings and adore the characters...there is nothing that this series is lacking.  If you are looking for heartwarming novels sure to fill in that little gap Mona Hogdson's series is for you.  There will be no disappointment!
