Review

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

I was eager to read this book because I thoroughly enjoyed the first three books in the series.

Twice A Bride by Mona Hodgson is the fourth and final book in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series.
Tammy's Book Parlor
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 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.

My first impression of Mona Hodgson's novel was the gorgeous cover with a picture of a young woman that reminded me of a young Judy Garland in appearance, and that's the way I saw Willow Raines Peterson throughout this entire warm and involving read.

Having not read the first three books in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series did not detract from my getting to know the characters and story behind the Sinclair sisters and their brother-in-law Pastor Tucker Raines, Willow's brother, prior to this story written around Willow. Even though placed in the year of 1898, we see that Cripple Creek is a burgeoning town filled with like characters working hard to build their town that we might still see across our nation in the present day. Of course, we have much more modern day conveniences now, but it was a time of running water, plumbing, telephones, iceboxes, (refrigerators) ovens and other inventions of rough nature. It worked for those living in this historical era.

We first meet Willow, Tucker and his wife Ida Sinclair Raines at the graveside of their father. The family watched Willow closely, because she now felt twice the sorrow having just lost her husband, Sam, in a drowning incident; and just having spent time in an asylum for depression. Ida and Tucker tried to convince Willow to live with them at the parsonage, but Willow preferred to live independently. Willow soon became a boarder at Hattie Adams' Boarding House, the same home of the Sinclair sisters for a length of time after their mother's death and their father, Harlan Sinclair moved to Paris to conduct business.

Willow depending deeply on God's grace and mercy is determined to find employment to support herself. She is a talented artist.

Format: Paperback
I am keenly aware that writing a novel is an arduous task, an accomplishment only a relative few can claim as their own. It is with this understanding that I preface my remarks about Twice a Bride by Mona Hodgson. Twice a Bride is the first of Ms. Hodgson's work I have read, though she has three other books in this series, The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek. Therefore, I review this book alone and not in the context of the series.

Twice a Bride takes place in Cripple Creek, Colorado in 1898. The burgeoning community boasts a considerable number of businesses, two boarding houses, an opera house, stores, restaurants, confectionary shop, and a professional photographer. Every modern convenience, including a rail station, electricity, and telephones makes this an inviting place to settle for late 19th century folks.

Having not read the previous books in this series, I met a number of characters with whom readers of Hodgson's previous books would be familiar. The author does a good job of bringing new readers up to speed with the basics of each character's backstory. For me, however, her characters were just that. Characters. They never became living breathing people. I didn't fall in love with the characters, and had I really loved them, I might have been able to overlook one particular annoyance.

Prior to reading this book, I was unfamiliar with the word, reticule. It is chiefly historical, a woman's small handbag, originally netted and typically having a drawstring and decorated with embroidery or beading. (The definition is from the dictionary on my computer) I like learning new words, and here was another to add to my collection. But Ms. Hodgson used it to distraction, especially in the first half of the book.
