Twice a Bride is the fourth book in Mona Hodgson’s Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series. Willow Raines Peterson is not a Sinclair sister, but a Sinclair sister-in-law, the sister of Ida Sinclair Raines’ husband Tucker. Willow and Tucker have just buried their father, and Willow is still hurting over the loss of her husband two years ago.
Trenton Van Der Veer is also newcomer to Cripple Creek, having opened up his photography studio there two months before Willow’s arrival. When he hires Willow to paint portraits, he doesn’t realize that she’s a widow. Nor does he know that his former fiancée is headed his way.
Twice a Bride is a relaxing read, with friends from previous Sinclair Sisters books, as well as some real historical characters brought to life by Mona Hodgson’s prose. I found it the perfect book to read after supper, sitting on the swing until twilight made it impossible to see the page.
I received this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah’s Blogging for Books program. I was not required to write a positive review.
