My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series by Mona Hodgson
book #3"The Bride Wore Blue"
This is the story of the "Baby" of the family Vivian, a young woman with a will of her own and tired of being referred to as the youngest.
Vivian has made some mistakes in her life and feels she is unworthy and not "up-to" standards of her older sisters. The sisters had came from Maine to Cripple Creek in Colorado and now there will be a reunion as sister #3 arrives to join them. In books 1&2 we saw the sisters find worthy mates and marry and settle into their lives as good upstanding citizens.
This unworthy feeling gets her into a lot of trouble as you will see when you read the book. Vivian seems to go from bad to worse as she tries to find a job to support herself in Cripple Creek. She did not want to come to this small town-she wanted to be with her dad in France and pursue a career of fashion designer- from a young age she had liked to sketch and was very good at it.
When she meets the sheriff's deputy Carter Alwyn she is determined she will not get close to this man. Men are not to be trusted in her estimation.
Carter a deputy sheriff feels his job lets him bring justice when there is a wrong and he remembers his dad saving a young woman who had been kidnapped that no one else wanted to help because she came from the seedier side of life-namely a prostitute. He feels he has to stay single to protect a woman from living married to a man taking chances and possibly getting killed leaving her alone.
He first meets and sees Vivian as a sweet young innocent woman and is so dissappointed when he finds out how she has lied and has so many secrets about her life in Cripple Creek...Can he forgive her and get back that "good feeling" he had when he met her.
Mona has her job cut out for her in this book. Read and learn how by the Grace of God these two young people make amends and learn to live again -there is forgivness and Grace if you take the time to notice as the family is reunited at the end of story.
