Product Description

Back east in Portland, Maine, Vivian Sinclair made a bad choice that follows her to Cripple Creek, Colorado, where her sisters have found husbands and made a home. The shame she carries with her is powerful and she struggles to accept forgiveness from the Lord. Vivian sees limited choices for her future...and marriage isn't one of them.

When most employers find Vivian unworthy as well, she is forced to accept a hostess job at a prestigious sporting parlor. Her decision appears to work out well until an outlaw shows up, violence breaks out and a death occurs. Vivian could be next, so she flees into the night only to be captured by the dangerous outlaw. Will the sheriff's deputy find Vivian? When he discovers her true identity, will he be able to forgive her secrets and lies?

Publisher's Description

The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek—Book 3

Headed toward a fresh start but tethered by her past, Vivian longs to break free, to find forgiveness and love.

At last, the sisters are reunited! The youngest Sinclair, the family" baby", is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?

The sisters warmly welcome Vivian to the mountain west, but the wild-and-woolly mining town isn’t ripe with opportunities for a respectable young woman. The youngest Sinclair sister is determined to make her own way, so
when she’s off ered a job as a hostess in a sporting house, she takes it, thinking the position is appropriate for a tainted, unlovable woman like herself. Although she’s convinced she’ll never be asked to entertain privately, Vivian
keeps her employment a secret from her sisters, knowing they’d be mortified—as will Carter Alwyn, the kind and godly sheriff ’s deputy who’s sweet on her.

Vivian is descending into a life of secrets, lying to the very people who love her and could help her heal from her mistakes. Will an outpouring of grace remind her that she is still God’s beloved and that her past can be washed as clean as Rocky Mountain snow?

    Okay book, at times it seemed to drag on a little and felt the story could have been written with less pages.

    I usually read every word in a book but this one I skimmed quite a few pages. Nothing really pulled me into the story.

    My Review

    I really enjoyed getting to know the Sinclair sisters through the author's book and look forward to reading future books in this series. Her writing is true to the era, but easy to read and easy to visualize yourself in Cripple Creek in the late 1800s. Vivian and her sisters are very believable characters and the story is interesting although the theme of the book, as so many Christian novels, is one of guil/shamet, forgiveness (one's self), finding grace and finding love again. Of course, the love story was a bit predictable but I still enjoyed reading it and would recommend it for lovers of historical fiction.

    WaterBrook Press (Blogging for Books) recently sent me a copy of The Bride Wore Blue by Mona Hodgson to read and review. The Bride Wore Blue is a 288 page Christian romance novel. It also contains a Readers Guide as well as a preview of her upcoming book Twice a Bride, available in October 2012. It is the third book in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series. A while back, I read the first book in this series; Two Brides Too Many and really enjoyed it.

    I enjoy Mona Hodgson's writing style, but I don't thing this book was quite up to her normal standards. I enjoyed the plot alright, it it was just that: alright. There was nothing really special about the book or the plot. The plot was very predictable and similar to other books I have read. I also felt the the book just dragged on and on and was very slow in the beginning. Then when the "action" finally took place, it was rushed through. I also found it really hard to believe that none of her sisters would have helped her more in finding a job or even offer her a job, especially when they are supposedly so close. The story was predictable and I feel that the relationship between Vivian and Carter was rushed and the chemistry just lacking between them. It just didn't seem that their romance was well developed. Overall, I think Mona Hodgson writes well, but this book just didn't work for me. I really wanted to like The Bride Wore Blue, but for me it fell flat.
