The Bride Wore Blue- Mona Hodgson

The Bride Wore Blue - Mona Hodgson

The Bride Wore Blue
By Mona Hodgson

This book is book number three in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series. Although I didn’t read the first two books I found it easy to become acquainted with the characters and the personalities of each.

This book is an Intriguing historical novel based on the redemption for our sins. The book starts with the main character, Vivian Sinclair the youngest of three sisters arriving back home to Cripple Creek with a past that haunts her. Unbeknownst to her sisters Vivian has lived a secret life that is eating at her very soul.

Her new life at Cripple Creek is peppered with poor choices that hinge on her tendency to compare herself with her sister’s lives and her beliefs about herself.

Vivian’s spunk, resourcefulness and independence make her character well rounded and fun to follow. I enjoyed the close relationship shared between the sisters, despite their differences, and yearned for a “sister” relationship like this one in my own life.
I did find the story a tad predictable, but it is a romance novel after all! Some of the twists and turns of the story made me laugh right out loud, sending confused looks from my family members.

I enjoyed the biblical truths this book held fast to, in a world where immorality is expected and embraced it was refreshing to immerse my self in a good read that upheld my beliefs and values.

I recommend this book for a quick and enjoyable read; in fact pick up the first two books for even more enjoyment.
Thank you Mona Hodgson for a wonderful adventure!

I received this book from WaterBrook Multnomah press in exchange for my honest review, thank you for this opportunity it is a joy to read and review!
