Twice A Bride by Mona Hodgson

Can unexpected romance deliver a second chance for two deserving widows?

            Four sisters, each with their own life's trial come together for each other in the path of uncertainty and confusion. Romance, loss, happiness and reality are introduced into the broad emotions displayed within the pages of this book
            Full of resolve, young widow Willow Peterson decides to pursue her dreams to be an artist as she settles into a new life in the growing mountain town of Cripple Creek. When she lands a job working as a portrait painter, with handsome entrepreneur and photographer Trenton Van Der Veer, the road before Willow seems to be taking a better-than-anticipated turn. This story of romance awakens hope against grief, love against loss and dreams against life’s unexpected turns.
            I enjoy reading historical novels that portray women in real life situations. Cripple Creek’s cast of colorful characters is charming, entertaining and at times a bit predictable. It has all the ups and downs of a romance, with a delightful dose of history.
            I did not know this was 4th in the series, but the story stood alone. I intend to go back and read the first three books in this series.
            I recommend this book to fans of this series or anyone who enjoys reading historical romance!
            I received this eBook through the Blogging for Books Program at WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing for my review.
