Twice a Bride, by Mona Hodgson, is a charming book. It is the fourth and last book in her series, The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek. This book tells Willow’s story, a young widow who was so in love with the husband that she had to be institutionalized for a time after he died.
Willow comes to Cripple Creek to live near her brother, Tucker, who just happens to have married Ida, one of the Sinclair sisters. She is looking for a fresh start and hoping to be able to use her skill as an artist. When she lands a job working with photographer Trenton Van Der Veer painting portraits from his photos, she is thrilled. Trenton is recovering from a broken engagement, and neither of them is expecting to find love again. The beloved Miss Hattie, who has taken care of all of the Sinclair Sisters when they first arrived in town, does not like their father at all when he finally comes for a visit, but she finds herself attracted to him nonetheless.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The author’s note at the end reveals an upcoming prequel series that includes some of the characters from this one, and I will look forward to reading it in the future.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
