The Last Days of Freedom Hop: Giveaway Copy The Bride Wore Blue: A Novel (The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek #3) by Mona Hodgson

Headed toward a fresh start but tethered by her past, Vivian longs to break free, to find forgiveness and love.

At last, the sisters are reunited! The youngest Sinclair, the family“ baby”, is moving from Maine to Cripple Creek, Colorado and joining Kat, Nell, and Ida. But Vivian is a young woman with a will of her own, and made some decisions back in Portland that have begun to haunt her. Will she be able to live up to the expectations of her three perfect and now happily-settled sisters?

The sisters warmly welcome Vivian to the mountain west, but the wild-and-woolly mining town isn’t ripe with opportunities for a respectable young woman. The youngest Sinclair sister is determined to make her own way, so when she’s off ered a job as a hostess in a sporting house, she takes it, thinking the position is appropriate for a tainted, unlovable woman like herself. Although she’s convinced she’ll never be asked to entertain privately, Vivian keeps her employment a secret from her sisters, knowing they’d be mortified—as will Carter Alwyn, the kind and godly sheriff ’s deputy who’s sweet on her.

Vivian is descending into a life of secrets, lying to the very people who love her and could help her heal from her mistakes. Will an outpouring of grace remind her that she is still God’s beloved and that her past can be washed as clean as Rocky Mountain snow?

My Review:
Another wonderful visit with the Sinclair sisters and a return to Cripple Creek CO. We begin our journey with the youngest sister Vivian and Aunt Alma on the train, soon to arrive at Cripple Creek....and then the adventure and life changing adventure begins. The train is being robbed, and Vivian accidentally trips one of the bandits. She is hoping to obtain a job as a fashion designer, and puts her talent to work in describing these hooligans. She meets the Deputy, who takes her statement, and her heart...Carter Alywn.
Be ready for a lot of action, and warm family reunions. You will feel so sorry for Vivian as she tries to find employment. She does make so very bad decisions, but who doesn't at such a young age?
Am so thankful that Mona Hodgson is giving us another installment, and wonderful visit to come with this great family, and I include Aunt Hattie in this family. Throughout this book there is a reliance on God....and we find out that nothing is to big for him to Forgive.

I received this book from the Publisher Waterbrook Press thought their blogging for books program, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Having 3 sisters and no contact with them, this story intrigues me. And, of course, forgiveness from the past always makes for a good storyline.
