Twice a Bride by Mona Hodgson is the 4th installment in the Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series. I say the 4th not the last as I hope that the series can continue on. The Sinclair sisters are still in Cripple Creek, Colorado and are joined by their honorary sister Willow Peterson. She has recently been dismissed from a long stay the sanatorium where her father sent her for recovery from the melancholy after the death of her husband, Sam. The only member of her family to visit her in the sanatorium had been her brother Tucker. Her father, who had been sick, suddenly died and this installment opens at his funeral. Everyone was afraid that this would send Willow back into a melancholy state. Willow though grieving the loss of her father decides to stay in Cripple Creek with her brother, Tucker and not return home with her mother to Colorado Springs. Willow has decided it is time to get on with her life and pursue her dream of painting portraits. Life is looking up for Willow when she lands a job with Trenton Van Der Veer the owner of the Photography Studio painting portraits and colorizing photographs. The Sinclair sisters are also surprised by a visit from their widowed father who arrives by way of train wreck bringing along an 8 year old orphaned girl from Paris.
I like this series so of course I liked this installment from the Sinclair Sister series. Topics move along in a steady pace and easily hold the interest. It is a quick read containing 291 pages. Any age can read the book but probably the subject would interest at least middle school age girls and older for topic.
