Good Book for a Summer Evening

The Bride Wore Blue is the third book in Mona Hodgson’s Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series.  Vivian, the youngest sister, has just arrived from Maine with Aunt Alma as her chaperone.  Always feisty and hiding her own secret, Vivian arrives in town having tripped a bandit who robbed their train.  This puts her square in the path of Deputy Carter Alwyn, who cannot understand why Vivian repeatedly rebuffs his offer of friendship.

Vivian’s life in Cripple Creek seems to be nothing but one disappointment after another.  The job she wants doesn’t come through, and she is quickly fired from another.  In desperation, she becomes a hostess welcoming customers to the local “sporting house” where the “other women” in town work.  Now she has more secrets to hide from her family.

This is an enjoyable story with a few plot twists as Carter tries to hunt the bandits and win over Vivian.  The redemption theme is strong and well-played.  It is a good read for a summer evening, and you do not have to read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one.

I received this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah’s Blogging for Books program.  I was not required to write a positive review.

About Lilibet King

I'm a mid-level manager for a national company, one that doesn't permit me to mention its name in a blog - I'm not that high up in the company. I'm an introvert who has trouble finding material on leadership for those who are introverted and/or shy, so I'm writing my own based on almost 20 years experience in management and supervision.
