Praise for The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series

“A beautiful tale. Intriguing. Inviting. Inspiring.”
—Cindy Woodsmall, author of The Hope of Refuge and When the Soul Mends

“It’s always a joy to read a historical novel that isn’t afraid to let its women escape the farm. Cripple Creek’s cast of colorful characters play host to a new romance, as well as pulling back the curtain on a local family tragedy. This
sequel does more than simply tell the “next” story; it revisits the characters we’ve already come to love and creates a complementary depth to an entertaining new tale.”
—Allison Pittman, author of Stealing Home and The Bridegrooms

“Ida believes her future is secure in a man’s world. After all, she has drive and determination. But what happens when she meets a man who makes a withdrawal from her heart? Author Mona Hodgson makes discovering the answer to this question a rich, rewarding adventure.”
—DiAnn Mills, author of A Woman Called Sage and the Texas Legacy Series

“All the ups and downs of a romance with a delightful dose of history, with characters that will sneak into your heart and take up residence. More, more, we want more.”
—Lauraine Snelling, author of No Distance Too Far and the Daughters of Blessing Series

Book had interesting characters and was a quick read with very little action with a predictable ending.

Format: Paperback
Talented artist and widow, Willow Peterson is seeking a new life in Cripple Creek, Colorado. She's thrilled to be able to be around her brother, pastor Tucker Raines, his wife, Ida Sinclair Raines, and the other Sinclair sisters. Jobless and still trying to make sense of her life, Willow accepts Ida's offer of a job at the family store, yet she longs to be able to use her talents. Photographer Trenton Van Deer is in need of a skilled artist who can paint portraits from his photographs. When he sees a sample of Willow's work, he knows he's found his artist. A few misunderstandings later, the two begin to work together. They also begin to fall in love. What will happen when Trenton's past collides with his hope for the future?

This is the fourth and final book in the Brides of Cripple Creek Series, but it easily stands alone. I've not read any of the other books in this series but I fully enjoyed this one. I found the characters to be delightful and fun. I loved the boardinghouse owner, Miss Hattie. She also finally finds love. I will soon be reading the other books in this series just so I can get to know the Sinclair Sisters!

I received the kindle e-book for free from the publisher, Waterbrook/Multnomah's Blogging for Books program for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Recommended to fans of Lori Wick, Karen Witemeyer, Susan Page Davis, Denise Hunter, and Tracie Peterson.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although I'm wondering if I missed some prequels to it! The author presents all the characters as if they are well-known to the reader, and each one comes to life in the telling of this tale. I love how she gently wove faith and a conversion story through this romantic novel. The only fault I find is, I think the primary antagonist's part was not well-developed. It seems it ended too easily, without expected drama. But that didn't detract from the story as a whole. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

Full of resolve, young widow Willow Peterson decides to pursue her dreams to be artist as she settles into a new life in the growing mountain town of Cripple Creek. When she lands a job 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, new developments promise more uncertainty as some unexpected visitors make their way to Cripple Creek. Will the arrivals threaten the deep family bond of the Sinclair sisters and the roots of love that are just taken hold for Willow? Filled with resonating questions that all women face, this romance awakens hope against grief, love against loss, and dreams against life's unexpected turns, revealing the ways a loving God turns brokenness into beauty.

I am sad now that I have finished the four books, loved each one, you feel as if you know these people. I love Monas' style of writing so easy to read, I wish that she would continue the saga.

After reading the three previous books in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series I was looking forward to reading Twice a Bride, the fourth and final book in the series. I very much enjoyed it and hate that it is the last book about this family.

I loved Hattie immediately from the first book and so wanted to see her get another love, she's a great woman and if anyone deserves another chance at love it's her. Then there's Willow, someone that I liked so much from the moment she was introduced, and I felt so terribly for all that she went through in her young life. The way love comes for both of them was wonderful and so sweet!

My only complaint is that, at times, the story felt rushed. There were two different love stories being told, updates on the previous books main characters, and a few "problems" that were solved so quickly that it almost felt as though shouldn't have even have been in there.

Even though this book could easily be read as a stand alone, as the author does a fabulous job of giving all the necessary details about each one of the previous books' stories, I would recommend reading them in order. I loved this book and series and think any fan of historical fiction would greatly enjoy them too.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***

I don’t know about you, but I like to have all the loose ends of a story tied up when all is said and done. That’s what happens in Mona Hodgson’s Twice a Bride. The setting is the same as in the prior three books in the series, Cripple Creek, Colorado. The year is 1898, and the town of Cripple Creek is growing rapidly.
Trenton Van Der Veer has moved to Cripple Creek to settle down after being a traveling photographer for several years. He is also running away from God and a broken betrothal. He is ready to expand his business to include portrait paintings, so he needs to hire someone.
Willow Peterson is a widow who has moved to Cripple Creek to start a new life, living close to her brother. She has lived through great tragedy and realizes she wouldn’t have made it through to the other side without God. She lives at Miss Hattie’s boardinghouse and is friends with the Sinclair sisters. Willow needs a job to support herself and longs to find a job that involves doing what she loves…painting.
Willow and Trenton have a rocky start to their relationship, with both of them not wanting to enter into a relationship other than for business reasons. Neither is looking to get married or find love. As they continue to work together, they realize they have much in common and the unthinkable happens; they fall in love. Trenton even goes to church once just to see Willow. He hasn’t been to church in years due to a preacher from his past telling him he was possessed by demons because he stutters! Willow shows him as well as tells him about God and how He has sustained her and continues to sustain her.
Miss Hattie finds love for herself in this story. We finally get to see the Sinclair sisters reunited with their father, and he brings a surprise with him.
