Book Review - "The Bride Wore Blue"

Mona Hodgson continues her Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series with book 3, "The Bride Wore Blue." All of the sisters are now together in Cripple Creek as the youngest sister, Vivian has just moved there from Maine.  Her trip was not uneventful in the least, and Vivian's motives for moving are more than she has let on to her sisters.  Vivian is determined to make a life for herself and move on from her life in Maine, but it is more difficult than she originally thought it would be. Carter and Vivian have a rocky first meeting, but it seems that there is more to their feelings for each other than mere concern and friendship.  Vivian finds that she is digging herself deeper into a mass of lies and this is puller her further from the ones who care about her.

I really enjoy this series!  Hodgson brings the characters to life and I love reading about Kat, Nell and Ida again and how their lives are now.  Vivian is such a lovable character and I found myself cringing at some of her choices and cheering her on all the time.  This series is worth reading!  I was immediately drawn into the story and wanted to keep reading until the end.  Vivian learns that God offers forgiveness and nothing she does it "too bad" for His forgiveness and grace; a great reminder for all of us!
