The Bride Wore Blue - Mona Hodgson
The storyline revolved around Vivian, the youngest Sinclair sister, who moves to Cripple Creek with dreams of being a fashion designer. When those dreams are squashed, followed by the failure of two successive jobs, she resorts to working in a brothel as a hostess for Pearl DeVere. One day she shockingly finds Pearl dead. Unfortunately, Pearl's boyfriend assumes that Vivian is the killer and sets out on revenge. The story only gets better when Vivian's love interest, the deputy of Cripple Creek, rescues her and discovers -- upon his dismay -- where she has been working.
What a beautiful story of redemption and joy! Mona keeps it light and fun the entire way through. My favorite quote of the book came from Miss Hattie when she said, "It's what we do in our future, dear, that decides how important our past truly was."
Currently, this novel retails on Amazon for $11.40, or you can purchase the Kindle edition for only $9.99. Don't forget to order books 1, 2, and 3, though. They are all very good.
This book was a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an objective review.
