The Bride Wore Blue, The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek, written by Mona Hodgson, follows the youngest Sinclair sister, Vivian, as she moves to Cripple Creek, Colorado to join her sisters and hopefully continue her work as a dress designer. Vivian enters Cripple Creek with an adventure, as she is the witness to a train robbery on her way into town. This puts her in contact with the local Sheriff’s Deputy, Carter Alywn. From the first moment they met, I wanted to see how the relationship between the two would develop. Unfortunately, Vivian made mistakes in her past, and they cause her to believe she cannot be loved or have a relationship with anyone. With that in mind, she takes the only work she can find, as a server a brothel where she witnesses events that will again keep her connected to Carter Alywn.
I really enjoyed this book, and I liked that it added to the other stories about the Sinclair Sisters, but it would also be possible for someone to read this book as a stand-alone. The theme of forgiveness is very prevalent in this book, and it is a theme most people must deal with at some point in their lives. For that reason, I think this book and the characters in it are very relatable to others.
I received a copy of this book for review purposes only from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group through the Blogging for Books program. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All my reviews are my honest and personal opinion.
