Twice A Bride by Mona Hodgson is the heartwarming story of two widows whose tragedies have left them in dire need of a fresh start, and second chance at love.
After the loss of both her husband and father, Willow Peterson is in need of a fresh start. Planting roots in the quaint mountain town of Cripple Creek, she decides to pursue her dreams of being an artist and lands a job as a portrait painter for the handsome town photographer, Trenton Van Der Veer. She is unsure of where this new life may lead, but the outcome proves to be most satisfying.
Boardinghouse owner Hattie Adams has been through her share of tragedies, and it seems unlikely that an older woman such as herself should have a second chance at love. But when Harlan Sinclair arrives in Cripple Creek, it seems she may be proven wrong, despite the fact that they got off to a rickety start.
This book was the fourth in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series, and though I had not read the previous books in the series, it didn't seem to hinder me too much from following the story. I could tell that it was later in a series, as it talked about the characters as though you should already know who they were. Still it wasn't too confusing, and I found this to be a pretty charming story. It wasn't all that in-depth, but still an enjoyable love story that is filled with many of the joys and tragedies that all women face.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
