This book was literally a breeze to get through. Mona Hodgson (www.monahodgson.com) continues her Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek series with this third installment.
The story follows young Vivian Sinclair as she moves from Maine to the "wild west" to join her three older married sisters. On the train ride over, bandits break onto the train and steal the cash box, but not before Vivian accidentally trips one of them. Her accidental heroics lead her to meet charming young Sheriff, Carter, who is immediately impressed with her sass and charm. Although she begins to develop feelings for him, she tries to avoid him by working hard at finding a job designing gowns. She "soiled" herself in Maine and doesn't think that she will ever find joy in family life like her sisters because no man will take a tainted woman (a secret that haunts her). The story grows more intriguing as the bandits bring havoc to the normally quiet town and Vivian is forced to take a job that no real lady would ever consider. Will Vivian ever forgive herself and move on? Will Carter ever catch the bandits and the girl? Read on to find out!
The story (like many historical Christian romances" was slightly predictable, that being said it wasn't a bad read. It was fast and easy (like Vivian? haha, I couldn't resist)and will be a perfect beach read.
