Publisher's Description

Kat and Nell Sinclair are headed west—away from the manicured lawns of Maine to the boisterous, booming mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado to start new lives for themselves as mail-order brides.
 
Aboard the train, romantic dreamer Nell carries a photo of her intended close to her heart and imagines an exciting and love-filled future, while her pragmatic older sister Kat resigns herself to marriage as a duty, not a delight.
 
But when the ladies disembark at the train depot, neither fiancé Patrick Maloney or Judson Archer awaits them with open arms. The well-bred Sinclair sisters find themselves unexpectedly alone in the wild, frontier town—a place where fire threatens to reduce the buildings to rubble, the working women strut the streets, rogues will gamble for the shoes on one’s feet, and God’s grace is found amongst the most unlikely of folks.
 
Two sisters,
Two missing misters,
A shocking welcome to the wild west that leaves both Kat and Nell Sinclair questioning their dreams­ and the hope for true love.

    The first book in Mona's Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series is Mona's adult fiction debut, though she's written many books for children. I love mail-order bride stories, but this was not one of my favorites. I enjoyed discovering how Nell & Kat handled everything thrown at them throughout the story. I loved the descriptions of Cripple Creek and the scenery surrounding the town. As far as characters go, though, the secondary ones were developed more than the main ones, and there were too many. The oddest bit of the whole book was the girls' father, a single parent, abandoning all 4 of his daughters to other relatives and the whims of being mail-order brides so that he could take a job in Paris. It just doesn't sound like something a loving father would do, especially not in the time period of the story. The double romances were also written without much oomph to them, with Nell's taking a distinct backseat to Kat's, though Nell's would have been more interesting reading. I didn't realize that one of the nuns in the story was a real person in Cripple Creek, until reading the note at the end of the book, but that was a neat little twist. I am looking forward to reading Ida's and Vivian's stories.

    This is the first book I have read written by Mona Hodgson.

    I will definitely keep my eyes open for others. It is a cute story written about two sisters that travel west to be mail-order brides. I would recommend it.
